Harvest & Drying
The harvest and drying methods vary, depending on the different techniques individual farmers use. Some do not take enough time to let the leaves grow to a certain age and therefore the leaves cannot produce enough alkaloid concentration. Also, great care must be taken when drying the leaves.
We prefer inhouse drying to avoid contamination from humans and birds. We make sure that our product stays on the tree long enough to produce the wanted alkaloids and that the drying process is handled with a focus on clean production.
