In our opinion, helping the workers and growers that make your cup of tea possible is an important goal. If you share this goal, consider adding a box of Fair Trade tea to your normal tea order.
With Fair Trade tea, local tea growers are paid a premium for their crop. The premium price helps growers make their lives and the lives of their workers better.
Taylors of Harrogate makes a Fair Trade Breakfast tea, which comes in a box of 20 individually wrapped tea bags. The tea is made from tea grown by small farmers in the Meru district of Kenya on the slopes of the Nyambeni Mountain range.
Taylors Fairtrade Breakfast tea is Fairtrade certified, which means the farmer is paid a premium to go toward projects that improve the social conditions of the farmers and their families, such as providing clean drinking water, building school classrooms and building health care facilities.
