SMALL TEA CO-OP LOCATION:
Nine small-scale tea growers in Assam, India are growing tea organically and processing their own tea and their garden sites. Their organic gardens are a haven for birds and microorganisms and their entrepreneurship is inspiring.
Farmer Profile: The tea growers process tea by hand, and dry in small facilities in each tea garden. Each tea garden employs between 5 and 20 labourers.
Direct Fair Trade Premiums: Premiums for tea go entirely to the labourers and the decision as to what the money put towards is determined by the labourers in an open meeting. Historically, premiums have gone towards water filtration for each home and piglets to raise and sell for profit.
Flavour Profile: Full bodied, traditional black tea with a sweetly smoked finish.
Description: A step away from the conventional, for those with a discerning palate - brought to us using a rare, traditional method. This finely broken whole leaf tea has a rich, round body, a deep red colour, and a daring silhouette of sweet smoke.
Serving Tips: Use 1 heaping teaspoon for 500ml of boiling water. Let it steep for 4 minutes.
