Where does our ethical black tea range come from?

Our ethical black tea collection hails from the Kelani Valley plantation in Sri Lanka, where a number of initiatives have been set up to bring the local works economic growth while still securing sustainable agriculture for generations to come! Named the first ethical tea brand in the world, Kelani Valley Plantations produce several of our breakfast blends, which are listed above.

We also stock an S. Farmers Mineral Spring tea from India. This Darjeeling tea is sourced from a small farmer cooperative in India that supports 450 families through multiple wide-range programs. Some of these programs include savings and credit unions, women’s self help groups, loan a cow plan and health awareness camps.

 

What are the benefits of purchasing ethical black tea?

Aside from the health benefits that come from sipping on black tea, ethical black tea are beneficial in the following ways:

  • Empowers workers in developing tea-growing regions
  • Allows for the sustainable use of tea ecosystems
  • An important cash crop that leads to food security
  • From crop to cup: greater transparency around where your tea comes from
  • Consider pouring a cup of ethical black tea the next time you want to relax and unwind during some well deserved “me” time. Making a cup of tea is also a great gesture of hospitality and a wonderful way to welcome someone into your home. Get together with those you love with a cup of ethical black tea in hand.
