"From our family's legacy of premium organic tea gardens in India to today, we are thrilled to be recognized as a leader in our industry for doing, what we believe, are right decisions by our kids and the future generations."Davidson's continues to lead the charge in the tea industry as the only true farm-to-cup tea company in the nation. In 1976, Davidson's began blending teas and bringing its blends to the market, shortly after introducing an organic line, the catalyst to eventually transition the company to an entirely organic production. The first to introduce dessert teas, honey teas and mulling spices to the consumer market, Davidson's is a proven trend-setter, often seeing every major consumer brand follow suit.This year, it introduced three additional flavors of its organic, fair trade and kosher certified Tulsi Teas to its line of six existing flavors. As the first to introduce the three pillars of the sustainable agricultural movement to Tulsi farming, including organic, kosher and fair trade certified, Davidson's hopes to share the joys of drinking this Ayurvedic "elixir of life" caffeine-free holy basil tea to the consumer.In June, Patel was appointed to the Nevada Organic Advisory Council thanks to his work and dedication to the Nevada Department of Agriculture's survey of standards on organics. He plans to leverage his industry expertise to guide the board in promoting organic products within Nevada and help interested companies reach organic certification.Promilla Mohan was raised on the organic tea gardens in the Darjeeling District in India from which Davidson's sources its products. The third-generation farms were started by her grandfather, an original tea grower in the Darjeeling District and the first to receive organic certifications.Davidson's has introduced six new tea flavors in more than five different package formats since the beginning of 2013 and continues to expand. Later this year it also plans to release a complete tea blending kit to the consumer market and to expand its gift item line within the next year.
