Fairtrade and the Tea Campaign

Fairtrade and the Tea Campaign

The term 'Fair-trade' is rife within cafes and trendy restaurants. Despite its abundant prevalence, the majority of consumers are unaware of what the term actually means and the impact that their purchase has on the developing world.

Fair-trade is a social movement striving to eliminate human suffering in developing countries and to assist the producers of these countries to obtain and maintain better trading conditions. The promotion of better trading conditions promotes sustainability and a higher income for the producers in return for their goods and produce. Those supporting Fair trade initiatives promote and advocate the payment of prices above the normal or expected levels for exporters. 

Fair-trade itself helps to prevent poor social conditions and the decline of basic human rights in developing countries in areas such as health care, sanitation, nutrition security and education. Fair-trade products are helping to eradicate these issues by establishing guaranteed minimum pricing and guaranteed wages for the producers.

Often deemed the 'Champagne of Teas', Darjeeling tea lays claim to a distinctive flavour, yielding a grape-like Muscatel. The colour of the dry leaf is an intricate mix of greens and browns, which gives it almost a camouflage appearance.

Our Darjeeling Tea is a fair-trade tea.

Regulated by rules in India, Darjeeling tea has adopted further regulations that ensure that a compulsory audit must exist per sale and must always be traceable from the planting of the tea, to the purchase of tea by the buyer. The purchaser of Darjeeling Tea also benefits from this audit trail as it guarantees that they are always receiving a pure product, with no blends in the mix.

The largest purchaser of Darjeeling tea is the Tea Campaign. All the tea that the Tea Campaign purchases is tested to ensure it is 100% organic after purchase.

Transparency of a product is valuable to the majority of socially conscious consumers. The Tea Campaign ensures organic and fair trade Darjeeling Tea that won't be enjoyed by the consumer at the expense of the producer.
