Darjeeling “The Champagne of Tea” [sponsored]

Tea lovers unite — watch our tea.coop video and Equal Exchange will plant a tea bush in India!

Have you ever had the chance to enjoy a cup of Darjeeling tea? Grown in centuries-old tea gardens, its ethereal quality has cemented this tea’s reputation as the “champagne” of tea, and Equal Exchange is working to support small farmers in the production of this truly special tea bush.

The video below featuring the Potong Tea Garden will give you an in-depth understanding of some of the issues involved with tea production, and how Fair Trade is helping. During the month of October, each time someone watches the tea.coop video, Equal Exchange will plant a tea bush in Potong, India. Our goal is to plant 5,000 more bushes and continue to support this exciting new model of small farmer empowerment!
