Our quality and ethical commiment

The ideal world of « l’Autre Thé »

When creating L’Autre Thé, cofounder Arnaud Dhénin was only to select and foster fair trade tea products. It soon turned out that he would have to make concessions in order to make high-quality tea.

Indeed, not all of organic teas could offer the subtle flavours that Arnaud was looking for and the best tea ranges are not all available among the organic agriculture.

 

 

Towards more and more natural products

Arnaud’s challenge is to select the finest organic teas and to blend the best teas grown in /BY conventional agriculture. He also works with small producers who use traditional methods, without chemicals, but who cannot be labelled « organic » for legal reasons. This is often the case for the tea farms he found when travelling in Asia. 

All of L’Autre Thé organic tea suppliers are nonetheless certified by independent certification bodies. L’Autre Thé is yearly audited, inspected and certified by Bureau Veritas (FR-BIO-10).

On a market that is dominated by artificial flavours, La Maison Dhénin stands out offering mutifarious teas blended with natural flavours, which yield all the subtlety required by Arnaud Dhénin.

Towards always more and more respect of the environment

In order to avoid unnecessary waste, L’Autre Thé offers a large range of steel tea strainers for teacups and teapots, tea balls and infuser spoons.

Likewise, to seal and keep the freshness of your teapouches, you may use the « Pince mi » wooden clips instead of metal clips.

Finally, our gift boxes and tags are made by French local suppliers. We collect and re-use our suppliers’ delivery cardboad boxes to wedge the products ordered on this website ; we also use  solvent-free recyclable adhesive tape to seal our packages. In our shops, the bags are made of recycled and recyclable paper and are printed with water-based ink.
