Popular Tea Bags Contain Illegal Amounts Of Pesticides

Pesticides are often sprayed at playgrounds and on produce we buy from the grocery store--which is why we wash our produce before we eat it.

A new study found high levels of pesticides in some of the world's MOST popular tea brands.

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

  • No Name

  • Uncle Lee’s Legends of China (Green Tea and Jasmine Green Tea)

  • King Cole

  • Signal

They found more than half of all the teas tested had pesticide residues that were above the legally acceptable limit. 

No bueno.
