A superior blend of pure Ceylon tea grown on high country tea estates giving a full-bodied flavour.

It has been packed and brought in by the long standing Australia Fairtrade Not for profit organisation Tradewinds ~Teas of Integrity. They have supported the Sri Lankan tea industry since 1977 with Fairtrade. They have seen the changes first hand. Changes such as better housing for the tea workers, healthcare, toilets, along with other benefits, which you can read on the back of the pack.

They ask all of us to join in bringing these winds of change, (that take time) to the lives of those they support by choosing Teas of Integrity.

Fairtrade gives farmers the ability to plan ahead knowing the price they will receive will take care of their families. Built into the Fairtrade system is a rule of buyers committing to the co-op for at least 3 harvests into the future and putting price estimates on those plans. This gives the farmers renewed abilities to grow their businesses. For more on the history of tea and the Fairtrade benefits CLICK HERE
