Our aim is to share excellent teas and interesting infusions, sourced from high quality and mostly organic plantations that are also members of the Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP).
The ETP standard expects the estates to provide well for its workers in terms of health, housing, education and childcare provision and to minimise exploitation, historically a problem and still prevalent on many plantations.
We are starting to develop relationships with some small plantations, supporting the local economies close to our projects. The first collaboration is with a local plantation near to Weligama in the south of Sri Lanka and close to one of our projects.
The second collaboration is in North India where we have started to support the work of Child In Need India (CINI) sponsoring pregnant women who are also casual workers on plantations in Assam. More information on our projects page.
