String and tag tea bag

This double chamber tea bag comes with a hard tag. Utilising a 'pekoe fanning' graded tea that allows for a full infusion of the tea.

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
