The green tea trees on our Jeju Island partner farm are lush and hardy, often adorned with spiders and other beautiful insects thriving alongside the rich wildlife native to the island—a clear indication that our green tea has been raised with absolutely no chemicals, pesticides or artificial inputs.
Instead, it is...
Single SourceWild Orchard has exclusively partnered with a single regenerative farm on Jeju Island for all our teas, so there are absolutely no traceability questions. Period.
All of Wild Orchard's tea comes from a single tea plant species called Camellia sinensis grown on a 1,000 acre regenerative tea farm on the subtropical volcanic island of Jeju in South Korea. For the first two decades, the farmers kept their green tea plants and soil wild and free of chemicals and artificial inputs in order to develop the healthiest and cleanest green tea possible. During that time, no significant profit was made from it, and they merely worked to keep the green tea protected and pure. Since then they have continued to grow their teas naturally and regeneratively without any sprays, fertilizers or compromising practices.
Born on the Farm
The farm's tea plants were born of seeds originating from its organic and equally pristine sister farm on the mainland. The seeds were planted directly into the Jeju Island soil, causing them to develop much deeper roots than those of simply transplanted trees. This allowed for superior nutrient absorption, resulting in stronger, healthier plants, and, ultimately, a healthier tea.
