Scarborough Fair Fairtrade Green Tea x 50 envelopes

A cup of calmness... pure green, fairtrade, organic tea from Ceylon at its best.
A crisp, delicate, mild flavour for a soothing sip at any time of the day.
Very refreshing when you add mint leaves!
The brewing instructions suggest pouring in 1/3 of a cup of fresh cold water before adding the hot water, then infuse your tea bag. Brew up to 5 minutes, depending on the strength of flavour desired.

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
