Fair Trade Teas

Our vision for Storehouse Tea Company

Our vision for Storehouse Tea Company is to be ethical and socially conscious as well. So providing Certified Organic tea was only the beginning. We feel our customers want to be sure that the teas they are enjoying are produced by people that are being paid a reasonable price for their teas. 

 Fair Trade Certification empowers farmers and farm  workers to lift themselves out of poverty by investing in their farms and communities, protecting the environment, and developing the business skills necessary to compete in the global marketplace. We try to purchase as much Fair Trade tea as possible, so that we can give back to these communities. The majority of tea pickers in the biggest tea-producing regions are women. As a female business owner, Storehouse Tea is grateful to these beautiful, skillful and hard-working tea pickers for providing our company with amazing tea leaves and want to pay them fairly for the work they do. 

Storehouse Tea's suppliers purchase from Fair Trade producer groups as directly as possible, guaranteeing to pay above market prices, though only pennies more for the consumer, eliminating unnecessary middlemen and empowering farmers to develop the business capacity necessary to compete in the global marketplace.

At Storehouse Tea, we feel connected to these organic and Fair Trade Tea Gardens and Farms and their owners, some of which have become our friends. We appreciate their hard work and dedication to putting out the most amazing organic tea and ingredients available while employing ethical and environmentally sound practices.

Fair Trade's Mission Statement

"We are building an innovative model of responsible business, conscious consumerism, and shared value to eliminate poverty and enable sustainable development for farmers, workers, their families, and their communities around the world."
