Product Description

Perfect for everyday brewing in a cup or pot, this full strength and fair-trade tea from Traidcraft has a lively, refreshing flavour.

Tea is important - why?
With over 20 million people in the developing world reliant on the tea industry, it is a vital focus in our/the fight against poverty.

In India, tea is the 2nd largest employer. Over 4million people depend on the industry to survive
10% of Kenya's population (or 3.8 million) is employed in the tea sector, Within the tea trade, smallholder tea farmers and workers benefit the least.
Many have extremely hard lives, which are physically demanding, with low levels of pay
Tea estate workers can be powerless to change their circumstances as they can be totally dependent on the estates for everything e.g. wages, healthcare, schooling and sanitation leaving them with little control over their lives
Smallholder tea growers often have no choice but to sell their tea through factories or middlemen with little bargaining power to earn a better price
Tea prices fluctuate leaving growers vulnerable. Tea prices have experienced a sharp increase in the past 12 months due to bad weather conditions and political instability in the main exporting countries, like Kenya. However this must be seen against the backdrop of long-term low prices, e.g. throughout the past 10 years tea auction prices in Kenya have remained at least 50% below today's high prices

We use the coffee and tea at all of our church events; after Sunday service, Tuesday coffee mornings and lunches, evening events and our painting group. Over 150 people a week drink it and no complaints

I've been buying these for years - doesn't take up too much space in the store cupboard but means I never run out of tea! 'Two cup' actually means it's perfect strength for one mug of nice strong tea. Proper job Fairtrade, what's not to like? Lovely, thanks Traidcraft.
