Fairtrade teas offer consumers an opportunity to enjoy quality & taste while directly benefiting the lives of tea pickers & their families.
Fairtrade Tea: Fairtrade is a partnership between tea pickers, tea traders & tea drinkers.
Fairtrade certification means that:
*The garden where the tea is grown meets specific standards for the wages, living situation, & working conditions of its pickers.
*For every tea purchase, a Fairtrade premium goes directly back to the tea workers themselves. A committee, elected by the workers, decides how these funds will be used to meet the community's most serious needs. Tea workers have used Fair Trade premiums to hire school teachers, build maternal health clinics, & bring electricity to their villages, among other projects.
