Spreading goodness, one cup at a time!

We are fiercely committed to being an organic, fairtrade and earth friendly company, but all of this starts with being good to those who provide us with all those good herbs and teas.  

Good tea needs good people..Producing tea isn't a breeze; it's a serious job. You've got people out there plucking, weeding, pruning, and composting, not to mention the crew in the factories processing the tea. Also, the tea plucking process in Sri Lanka is mostly led by women, who are often not highlighted for the goodness they bring to your cup. This is why we engage with them and care for our tea communities, with a variety of welfare activities
Why are we Fairtrade?

Grabbing some fairtrade tea isn't just about having a cozy cuppa; it's about doing some real good for the people who grow and pick those leaves and their communities. fairtrade means these folks get fair pay, rights, and a shot at a better life.

When you pick up some fairtrade tea, you're not just paying for the tea itself; you're also pitching in for a fairtrade bonus. That extra cash goes towards farmer and worker funding projects to improve education, healthcare, and housing in their communities.

And it's not just about the money; fairtrade also helps improve working conditions and teaches sustainable farming methods, which is a win for the environment too. Plus, it ensures kids get fed and schooled, which sets communities on the path out of poverty.

On top of all that, fairtrade means communities can invest in stuff like clean water and clinics, boosting everyone's health and happiness.

What does the Rain forest certification mean?

So, when you see that little Rainforest Alliance seal on a product or business, it's like a stamp of approval saying they've met some pretty important standards for being eco-friendly, socially conscious, and economically sustainable. The Rainforest Alliance, a non-profit all about saving nature and helping communities thrive, sets these standards. To snag that certification, producers and businesses have to show they're doing things like protecting eco-systems, looking out for wildlife, treating workers and communities fairly, and managing things responsibly. So, when you buy stuff with that Rainforest Alliance Certified seal, you're basically voting for a greener, fairer world.  

Why do most of the products have the organic and Fairtrade certifications, and not the Rainforest Alliance certification?
Why does only the 100% black tea and green tea have all 3 certifications?
We partner up with suppliers who provide Fairtrade-certified herbs, organic-certified herbs, and Rainforest Alliance-certified herbs. Most of the time, suppliers can offer Fairtrade and organic-certified teas or, alternatively, Rainforest Alliance and organic-certified teas. While we can score all three certifications for the teas, it is practically harder to source herbs with all three certifications. That's why our 100% pure black tea and green tea have all three certifications, while the rest have only two.
