At the heart of our blends is a beautiful and bright black tea from Kericho in Kenya. We chose our provider not only because of their quality and great tasting product but because we share the same values. Our supplier is a pioneer in sustainable and ethical tea.
More than 30,000 people live on their Kericho farms of whom 6,736 are employees. They are so focused on creating a better world for their community to live in; they have built and powered 11,000 houses, 6,000 kitchen gardens, 13 dispensaries and 67 schools for the community as a whole, not just those that are on their payroll!
We love to support them in their ongoing projects and are proud to say we can track our tea right back to it’s picker. (If feeling text heavy we could break some of this up into images with text across?)
Whilst our tea comes from Kenya, we also aim to source as many of our ingredients as possible from British soils. Steering clear of artificial sweeteners for example, we’ve avoided imported sugar cane and add a little Suffolk grown British beet sugar to provide body and the necessary sweetness to our blends.
