Metolius Tea sources as many ingredients as possible directly from small co-op and family-owned farms. We have found the most vibrant flavors, values and relationships at the community level. Our most cherished farming partnerships practice sustainable farming and affect measurable social impact in their communities.
We exclusively use Natíve organic sugar in our Chai and Turmeric Gold concentrates, botanical syrups, and Matcha Latte. Natíve Organics is the first Regenerative Organic Certified™ sugar producer. Over the last 35 years Natíve’s Green Cane Project has reinvented cane sugar growing and processing by focusing on soil health and biodiversity, integrating sustainability at all levels of their operation and ensuring social fairness to farm workers. Natíve has also planted over 1 million trees, creating 11,000 acres of greenways on its farms to attract beneficial wildlife and installed cogeneration equipment to power the mill and surrounding communities.
