Esah Tea was established to promote teas that are organically grown, using sustainable farming practices and produced to strict standards.
For centuries, tea has been an essential part of many cultures, and tea production is an integral part of the world economy. The downside is outdated plantation models, poor working conditions and environmental degradation.
Ésah Tea strives to change that by going direct to farmers who have been carefully selected for their commitment to sustainable agriculture. The team works with farmers through the stages of tea preparation to ensure quality standards and flavor profiles are met.
Ésah offers a range of loose black tea, specialty teas, chai and tea blends. Their eco-friendly tea bags are made from certified organic cotton and contain no microplastics. The brand is one of the few to offer rare teas like the native Phanap, which is produced by just one community in Assam and parts of the Northeast. The phanap is an aged and fermented tea with some similarities to the pu-erh.
Assam, where Ésah is based, produces nearly 30 percent of the world’s total tea production. However, only a small percentage of farmers practice organic farming. “Our vision is to create a 100 percent organic and sustainable tea industry. We believe tea should be grown using all-natural methods like vermicomposting and panchagabhya, rather than relying on harmful pesticides and fertilizers,” said Bijit Sarma, CEO of Ésah Tea. “By buying Ésah tea, you support a company that is working to make a difference.”
Ésah is also committed to offering young Assamese professionals the opportunity to work for a global brand while helping to revitalize the tea industry.
