Tea gardens that meet comprehensive standards for sustainability earn the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal.

These standards conserve biodiversity, protect soils, waterways and wildlife habitat and help ensure that farm workers receive decent housing, access to medical care and schools for their children.

What relationship does NESTEA® have with tea farmers?

NESTEA® works with historic partners of Nestlé India which has been operating in the area for 40 years. As the NESTEA® presence is new, we will look to further develop the relationships with the tea farm owners and workers.

We are fully committed to responsibly sourcing tea and having our suppliers comply with our Responsible Sourcing Guideline (RSG), and from time to time, third party certifications, as may be appropriate (e.g. Sedex, Trustea, Rainforest).

What is Stevia?

Why is Stevia added to NESTEA®?

NESTEA® utilizes a sugar/Stevia combination to reduce the amount of caloric sugar in the tea, while still delivering a sweet, satisfying flavor. Nestlé is focused on meeting consumer's expectations in health and wellness and pleasurable consumption. The leaves of the stevia plant contain sweet components that are extracted, purified and used as a sugar substitute in many foods and beverages.
