About the Elephants

All Coalition Tea blends start with Certified Elephant Friendly (TM) Tea.  The Asian elephant is endangered, with its numbers continuing to dwindle.  Unfortunately, tea farms can be dangerous and even deadly for elephants.  Traditional farming methods can lead to electrocution, poisoning and drowning for these beautiful creatures.

Certified Elephant Friendly (TM) Tea is sourced from tea plantations that meet high standards for protection of elephant habitat and water resources; reducing human-elephant conflict; and reducing barriers to elephant movement.
