Small farmers, big change. Caffeine free. USDA Organic. Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth. Organic Rooibos: This red bush tea from South Africa is naturally caffeine free with earthy, vanilla and citrus flavor notes. Delicious with milk, straight up or over ice. Go ahead and enjoy another cup. Most teas-even Fair Trade-come from plantations where workers have little say, and are often trapped in a system of: dependency. Together, we are building a different tea model, one that gives small farmers greater access to the market, affording them more economic power, better lives and healthier communities. This blend includes tea grown by the small-scale farmers of the Potong Tea Garden in Darjeeling, India, an organic, Fair Trade tea garden managed by Tea Promoters of India (TPI). TPI is a pioneer in environmental and social reform in the tea industry. Once a colonial plantation, the Potong Tea Garden is now collectively run by its workers and is paving a stronger, more democratic path forward for the community.

Join Our Movement: With your support, over the last 30 years Equal Exchange has become one of the leading alternative traders, while small farmers have gained a meaningful seat at the table. And yet, our mission is more threatened today than it was 10 years ago. Climate change is wreaking havoc on our farmer partners. Corporate digestion of Fair Trade has both reduced the power of small farmers, and has demoralized shoppers in the US. It's a difficult path ahead but together we can move mountains.
