Why tea from Kenya?
There are over 500,000 small-scale farmers in Kenya who grow and export over 450,000 tons of tea each year. That makes Kenya the world’s largest exporter of tea, ahead of some of the more famous tea countries such as China, Sri Lanka, and India. The equator divides the Kenya, so the year-round sunshine means the tea is grown and plucked almost all year round. Moreover, Kenya’s volcanic soil naturally produces some of the world’s most flavourful tea.
JusTea is based out of Vancouver, Canada and has established Kenya’s first-ever, small-scale farmer-owned, Artisanal Tea Factory. They are providing fair and sustainable wages for tea farming families. Since their foundation in 2012, JusTea has created over 40 sustainable jobs for youth and women in rural Kenya. JusTea currently employs 8 tea workers at the cottage factory, 30 people to hand-pluck leaves in the garden, and over 10 small-scale tea growers. Since 2016, they’re also a member of the Fair Trade Federation.
