From Crop to Cup: Carmién Tea’s Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

Carmién Tea isn’t your average rooibos brand. We’re not just a seller, we’re the whole package: cultivator, processor, packager, and exporter. This means you get your rooibos directly from the source – our rooibos farms are based in South Africa’s unique Cederberg region, one of the few places on Earth where rooibos thrives.

Here’s what sets Carmién Tea apart:

  • Traceability: Ever wonder where your tea comes from? With Carmién, you can be sure. You’re getting a product that goes from crop to cup with complete transparency.
  • Sustainable Farming: Carmién is committed to eco-friendly practices. We use sustainable farming methods to protect the environment and create a model that benefits the land for generations to come.
  • Community Focus: Carmién prioritizes the well-being of their farmworker shareholders and the surrounding communities.
  • Quality & Flavour: Our commitment goes beyond sustainability. We adhere to international food safety regulations to ensure a high-quality product that delivers on taste.
  • Eco-Friendly Packaging: Carmién doesn’t stop at the tea itself. We use compostable teabags and recyclable outer packaging to minimize their environmental footprint.

But our commitment to sustainability goes even deeper. We partner with FSC-certified printers to ensure our packaging comes from responsibly managed forests.

What is FSC Certification?

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a global organization that sets the standard for sustainable forest management. When you see the FSC label on Carmién’s tea boxes, you know the packaging meets strict environmental, social, and economic guidelines. This means the forests that provide the materials are looked after for the benefit of people and the planet.
