This green tea blend--with aromas of nori, apple, and steamed rice--includes tea grown by the small-scale farmers of the Potong Tea Garden in Darjeeling, India, an organic, Fair Trade tea garden managed by Tea Promoters of India (TPI). TPI is a pioneer in environmental and social reform in the tea industry. Once a colonial plantation, the Potong Tea Garden is now collectively run by its workers and paving a stronger, more democratic path forward for the community. Enjoy this round bodied and sweet tea complete with delightfully bright astringency and tasting notes of lemongrass, honey, and nori. Most teas — even Fair Trade teas — come from large-scale plantations and tea estates where workers have little say, and are trapped in a system of dependency. Equal Exchange’s fairly traded, organic teas are different! They buy their delicious tea directly from democratically-organized groups of growers. When small-scale farmers gain access to the global market, they have more economic power, better lives, and healthier communities. Certified Kosher
