Buy amazing tea to support a partnership with tea farmers who are currently earning just $2/day. JusTea is the only premium quality whole leaf tea that will come directly from Kenyan farmers. Together, lets stand up for the makers of the beverage we love!

                              Two years ago we just drank tea like everyone else...

We didn’t ask many questions about where it comes from. But near Lake Victoria in Kenya we stumbled upon Davison’s one-acre family tea farm. At first we just wanted to learn about tea, but then we became friends… and that changed everything.

JusTea wants to share with you some of the best Kenyan tea available but that’s not our only goal. We are inviting you to participate with us in building the first processing kitchen to craft whole leaf tea in Kenyan farmer co-ops. Together, let’s show the world that it’s possible to support a Kenyan tea farmer to earn more than $2 a day. 

This FundRazr campaign offers 3 JusTeas that have been reviewed and raved about by tea drinkers just like you. Certified tea sommeliers have also given it excellent ratings. So pick up a perk... because this is some damn good tea!

                                                      Here’s the Plan...

Although Kenya is the world’s largest exporter of black tea, almost 500,000 small scale tea farmers are trapped in a cycle of debt and poverty. Kenyan neighbours work hard together to support one another but lack opportunities. They are forced to sell their raw tea leaves for low prices to central processing factories. The tea then goes through many hands until it ends in our cups. Of the price we pay, only 1% of the money returns to the farmer.

We want to invest in partnerships with Kenyan tea farmers. We want them to become sustainable tea producers. Therefore, our first step is to bring in a tea processing expert and train the farmers how to hand process premium whole leaf tea. We want to establish a tea processing workshop and start a tea self-determined co-op in which the farmers process their own tea. We will enable them to sell this tea in a fair and direct trade partnership to tea lovers like you. 

We want to re-connect tea lovers with the land and with justice for the people producing their tea.

                                    

                                                The Next Step: November 2013

This is Davison and his family. He is a small-scale tea farmer who earns only two dollars from his tea crop each day. In November, with $20,000 raised from this campaign, the JusTeam will build a tea processing kitchen so that Davison and his neighbours can process their own tea next to their land in a local co-op. They will receive a fair profits for their tea. You can make this happen with JusTea in your cup.

                                               

                                              Just How Good Is This Tea?

When a certified tea sommelier says, “The fresh factor makes it explode on the palate!" you know you’re drinking something special. JusTea is premium quality tea that rises above its peers because it is extremely fresh and tastes amazing!
