Our Social Responsibility
Did you know?
Your love for drinking tea contributes to an industry that helps employ millions of people all over the world?
According to a global report initiated by the IISD (International Institute for Sustainable Development,) Tea production employs 13 million people, 9 million of whom are smallholder farmers, while the remainder work in tea estates; in China, Sri Lanka and Kenya, which account for half of the world’s tea production, the majority of tea is produced by smallholder farmers.
Here's How We're doing Our Part
We have decided to redirect the majority of our product focus from our usual tea blends and infusions to organic, single origin, artisan crafted and single estate teas.
We are committed to sourcing these teas directly from farms that work together to improve the lives of their workers. This way, our customers can enjoy their luxury loose leaf teas also knowing that they are improving the lives of the people that work so passionately to grow it, all whilst preserving our planet earth.
The Mapenzi Project
We're very excited to launch our newest initiative called The Mapenzi Project.
This project is aimed to put a spotlight on African teas from ethical tea factories and farms that account for the livelihood of thousands. Check out our first organic blend from Rwanda by Clicking here.
