Organic Darjeeling Black Tea

Rated 5.0 out of 5
1 Review

This tea comes from the small farmers of Mineral Springs Co-op in Darjeeling, India. Mineral Springs members grow tea as one part of a diversified production system, usually with spices, oranges, or dairy. The farmers from this beautiful hill community are deeply committed to organic and sustainable production.

Most teas — even Fair Trade teas — come from large-scale plantations and tea estates where workers have little say, and are trapped in a system of dependency. Equal Exchange’s fairly traded, organic teas are different! We buy our delicious tea directly from democratically-organized groups of growers. When small-scale farmers gain access to the global market, they have more economic power, better lives, and healthier communities.

Organic Darjeeling Black Tea

I had not tried this tea before. I purchased it to use as a base for making Chai Tea. It has a nice earthy smoothness.
