Why Assam Tea?
Did you know that manufacturing of one of the finest processed tea had been a traditional and home based skills of the tribe of Patkai hills in Upper Assam for ages.
The Colonial British Government in India unearthed this a century ago and converted this know-how into an industry.
Today India is the largest producer of tea in the world and the state of Assam is the largest contributor to the Indian Tea Industry.
However, contrary to the popular belief , in this part of India, green leaf of Tea from which "Processed Tea" is produced is not only grown in large estates or gardens of multinationals and rich individuals, but also in household level small holdings with sizes less than a hectare area too.
These small tea growers significantly depends on the prices of tea leaves. Just or unjust, fair or exploitative, these prices are fixed by factories owned by big shots which does not justify the hard work of the farmers.
We are working with these small tea growers to help and empower their lives.
What we sip daily sitting at our homes or offices; this can create a huge impact on the farmers lives in Upper Assam.
