String and tag tea bag

This double chamber tea bag comes with a hard tag allowing for a full infusion of the tea. The Pekoe Fannings grade of tea is much better than the dust grade tea which is found in most conventional teabag brands.

A cute poem on the side of the box says  "If I could take away your troubles, I would toss them in the sea. But since I can't, enclosed herein, my favourite cup of tea!"

Zoetic means "pertaining to life and health"

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
