Traidcraft Earl Grey Teabags
A blend of black tea from East Africa, infused with natural bergamot. Full-bodied, bright, refreshing and fair trade too! What better brew to put your feet up with?
At Traidcraft, they love fair trade tea and are passionate about their friends that grow it. Traidcraft Earl grey tea has been grown and harvested by traditional farmers in East Africa, infused with natural bergamot, and blended in collaboration with tea experts here in the UK.
Drop a bag of Earl Grey in your cup, add a splash of milk or slice of lemon, and enjoy a full-bodied, bright, and refreshing brew. Take a sip, and know that the tea you’re enjoying isn’t only expertly made, it’s also as fair trade and eco-friendly as it comes.
And how can they guarantee the smooth and fresh taste of their tea? The secret is Leaf Lock True Taste®, a unique process that locks in the freshness of the tea and especially protects it all the way from origin to pack.
Traidcraft works with the nationally renowned tea blenders Ringtons to create the best possible blends from our Fairtrade tea. Traidcraft Fairtrade tea primarily comes from small-holder tea producers in Africa and India.
Fairtrade is about working together in partnership with producers. At Traidcraft, we’re working with tea producers in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Malawi and India. And this includes particularly vulnerable producers who will gain the greatest benefit from our trade and support.
Traidcraft is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of fair trade food and organic food. We work directly with farmers and suppliers from all corners of the globe to provide products that taste good and helps change lives. We are passionate about fair trade food and believe that we can “fight poverty through trade”.

These are too big for a standard large letter package (best price) so postage for a single item really bumps up the cost, we would advise buying more than one or adding other items from our shop to get the best value as our postage is based on size and weight which means we can pack more than one item in the same package, saving you, us and the environment. Thank you.
