Organic means the plants are grown without the application of petrochemical fertilizers or chemical pesticides, and are non-GMO and non-irradiated. The absence of all these elements speaks to the purity of the product.The leaves are harvested once in 30 to 45 days; ensuring that young, tender leaves are selected. The leaves are sorted, washed for 30 seconds, drained, and ‘shadow dried’ in shade between 23 to 30C until dry and brittle. The leaves are then ground to give a fine powder.
