Equal Exchange – Fairly Traded
This tea is different. Dramatically different. It doesn’t come from plantations. Instead, it’s sourced from a network of partners who are changing the terms of trade for small farmers. The goal of building this alternative model is what has driven us from the beginning: small farmers, democracy in trade, quality products. Enjoy the tea. Be part of the change.
The Wupperthal Original Rooibos Cooperative, a democratically organized group of small-scale farmers, has grown Rooibos in South Africa for generations. These farmers were pushed off the most fertile land in the 1800’s and later endured segregation imposed by apartheid. Their dry land is a challenge for most crops. But with Rooibos – ironically – the slower growth and lower production results in quality that can’t be found anywhere else.
