Tea is traditionally one of us Brits’ favourite drinks. Its history goes back to imperial times when tea was a key commodity traded from overseas – at vast expense.
Now it has become part of our national identity we have an even greater responsibility to the people overseas who are growing all kinds of different varieties of tea. Whether it’s a delectably blended black tea, fresh young green tea plucked from the tips of the tea bush, or perhaps a modern day twist like iced tea or fruit tea (which actually comes under a whole different category – a fruit tea has ingredients from all sorts of fruits and spices!)
Whatever your brew, there’s a Fairtrade option for you. Why not try one of these fine choices and raise your cup for this year’s Tea Day.
