Quality assurance

Premium tea from TeaGschwendner at the highest level

TeaGschwendner stands for highest product quality and excellent product safety. Even the purchase of our teas is carried out according to defined quality criteria. Tea from organic cultivation is preferred, while tea from conventional cultivation is exclusively sourced from tea gardens that know the high quality standards of TeaGschwendner and take them seriously. TeaGschwendner employees regularly visit the tea gardens on site to discuss quality-relevant criteria with the producers. All tea samples are tested for traditional quality criteria as well as for unwanted residues and contaminants. Traditional quality assessments (examination of the processed leaf, smell of the dry tea, taste of the brewed tea, examination of the infusion, i.e. the brewed tea leaves) are carried out by our tea tasters.

To ensure the flawless quality of our products with regard to possible residues or impurities, our quality assurance is based on a close-meshed concept. Our tea varieties are tested on the basis of a "Code of Practice" in which quality assurance strategies are defined at all product stages.

Secured and controlled products

As an essential element of our quality assurance, we have established our own laboratory under scientific management. Here all types of tea are constantly checked for residues and impurities. A prompt preliminary examination of offer and purchase samples enables us to make purchase decisions on the basis of a comprehensive quality assessment and to offer a high-quality, clean and healthy product together with our producers.

In addition, the tea varieties are additionally inspected by independent sworn experts and the tea importers' association continuously inspects tea samples from various production areas in a voluntary self-control process.
