Why we don’t carry Fairtrade certified teas
While you won’t find any Fairtrade labelled teas in our line-up, we do carry many teas grown on Fairtrade certified estates. We choose to forego the Fairtrade label, since they are a for-profit organization.
While many of Fairtrade’s ethical policies reflect our own, our experience has shown that better results can be made through the Ethical Tea Partnership. As well, many Tea Estates remain beyond the scope of Fairtrade.
