Product Safety

Product safety is one of the most important aspects in today’s food & beverage industry. All our products have been carefully selected by qualified and trained experts and are constantly analyzed and checked by independent laboratories for adherence quality standards. For individual requests we can order an independent analysis for any particular standard.

Quality in every Aspect

Taste Testing

We employ long-term experienced “tea tasters” from the industry. Sensoricial (taste) and optical testing, an evaluation of the dry tea leaf, the leaf after steeping, as well as the color of the infusion has been conducted and categorized at our facilities for over 100 years.
We test our teas with state of the art quality control equipment and compare hundreds of infusions daily. All this, enables us to optimize quality and price and develop creative product compositions while maintaining our focus on the taste of the infusions. Several centuries of experience in the tea industry, in combination with continuous improvement and development of our quality management, enables us to offer consistent quality and analytically perfect products which fulfill our customers’ demands.

Laboratory Analysis

All our teas are constantly tested for unwanted residues (e.g. fertilizer, pesticides and contaminants) by specialized laboratories within the industry which undergo periodic ring tests (part of an external quality assurance program for a measuring method).
We purposely outsource this process to unbiased specialists who are capable of, and have the equipment for, the most modern, constantly updated analysis methods which satisfy the increasingly stringent criteria.


Dried Ingredients quality system checks the products at the source of origin. We have maintained long term relationships with our growers, who we personally visit on a regular basis during harvesting, in order to carefully control the overall process.
Whether handpicking, automated harvesting or technical processing – our goal is to maintain a sustainable, ecological and high quality production within our product range.

Our Certificates

We aim to offer only the purest ingredients for our products whenever possible, therefore we fulfil very clear standards for our products.
