Most Popular Tea Bags Contain ILLEGAL Amounts of Deadly Pesticides

We do everything we can do avoid contact with pesticides, from washing our produce before we eat them to buying organic or homegrown fruits and veggies. We do everything we can to avoid consuming these toxic pesticides, and yet somehow it always manages to find a way into our home.


One of the more recent examples of this includes the discovery of incredibly high levels of pesticides in some of the world’s most popular tea brands including Lipton, Tetley and Twinings. CBC News conducted an investigation on the pesticide levels of most major tea-producing companies. These companies included:

Lipton (Pure Green Tea and Yellow Label Black Tea); Tetley; Twinings; Red Rose; Uncle Lee’s Legends of China (Green Tea and Jasmine Green Tea); King Cole and  Signal

Using an accredited lab, CBC investigators used the same testing method employed by the national Food Inspection Agency to test the pesticide residue on the dry tea leaves.

The investigators found that more than half of all the teas tested had pesticide residues that were above the legally acceptable limit. Eight out of the 10 teas tested also contained multiple chemicals, with one brand of tea containing over 22 different types of pesticides.
