Wild Orchard Green Tea comes from a 1,000 acre tea plantation on Jeju Island, South Korea, where the soil is rich in minerals from the native volcanic rocks. Copious rainfall keeps the green tea trees naturally well-watered while the permeable volcanic soil allows for proper drainage. Constant circulating winds keep pests at bay, and the farm’s inland location allows for a mild sea breeze that provides a beneficial salinity, all creating the optimum environment for our green tea plants to thrive.
Wild Orchard’s green tea is harvested from trees grown from Mongjung Mountain Tea Plantation’s seeds first planted on our Jeju Island farm in 1999 and raised wild among weeds, insects and animals for the first two decades in order to acclimate them to a totally natural environment, and ultimately produce a more robust green tea.
Our green tea farm is maintained 100% organically without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
In 2007, we earned both the USDA Organic Certification and the Canadian CanTEST certification after being tested for 268 chemicals. Our regeneratively farmed green teas undergo a unique and thorough 4x washing process upon harvest in order to remove all dirt and ultrafine particulates—a growing problem throughout Asia impacting the quality of teas. Wild Orchard Green Tea proudly presents the cleanest organic green teas available.
