Fair Trade

Why don’t we carry any Fair Trade certified teas?

While you won’t find any Fair Trade labelled teas in our line-up, we do carry many teas grown on Fair Trade certified estates. We choose to forego the Fair Trade label, since they are a for-profit organization.

While many of Fair Trade’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 Fair Trade.
