This spring I began replacing my conventional teas with Organic, mostly herbal ones.
An important part of reducing my body's exposure to toxins is buying organic as much as I can. Organic means there's a higher standard for quality growing and ingredients and often having a 3rd party certification (like USDA) provides integrity assurance that organic isn't just a company claim.
There are a lot of hype out there about "organic" and "natural" products and a lot of brands and companies to wade through. The more I read, the more I discovered fakes! It led me to ask: "how do I know it's the real deal?"
