I would be interested in your thoughts. I am thinking of submitting several samples of Adagios' teas as well as some others to a lab for analysis. It will cost a lot of money but I want to know!
I am not that picky as the US government allows a certain percentage of Unknown materials to be in food. This ranges from rat droppings to flakes of metal. I can understand wanting to prove teas to be truly organic but at that point you might want to find the true Source (farm/plantation/what have you) of the tea.
But it always comes down to this simple fact: Its your money so I am not spending it
