Source Information

The workers at this organic tea estate in Assam, India have allocated their Fair Trade funds towards a new school, cooking stoves, mosquito nets and women’s self-empowerment programs.

Tea Processing

The top two leaves and bud of the tea leaf are rolled, bruised and crushed, allowing the leaf to fully oxidize and transform to a deep coppery color. The Assam black tea is then layered with real Italian Bergamot for several weeks so the tea absorbs the orange scent.
