We’re celebrating Fair Trade Month with some special new arrivals! Eight organic teas from Equal Exchange—including green, black, and herbals!
What’s so great about Equal Exchange tea? Listen to the source: “Most teas come from plantations where workers have little say, and are often trapped in a system of dependency. Together, we are building a different tea model, one that give small farmers greater access to the market, affording them more economic power, better lives, and healthier communities.”

Ginger is a powerful root with incredible health benefits from relieving digestive problems such as nausea, loss of appetite, motion sickness and pain. Equal Exchange’s ginger is grown by the Marginalized Organic Producers’ Association (MOPA), a network of over 800 small-scale farmers, about half of whom are women, in the Uva and Central regions of Sri Lanka. By providing access to markets, small farmers are able to stay on their land provide strong livelihoods for their families, and maintain vibrant communities.
