Trail Lodge Now Carries Tea from Kanchanjangha Tea Estate (KTE) in Nepal
Check out this video that tells you all about this ethically sourced tea. We are excited to be partnering with them. This is an organic tea and actually comes from a Tea Garden that is Fair Trade Certified through Flo Cert. We purchase it directly from Nishchal Banskota (the youngest son of the tea garden owner) here in the United States. That is why the tea doesn't have the Fair Trade Certification. Normally, Fair Trade USA connects importers here in the United States with Fair Trade Certified Tea Gardens or Co-ops. That way, they don't have to sell their products to middle men in their own country and get a fairer price for their product and have more money for the farmer. Since KTE is importing the tea directly to the United States and sell it directly to retailers, they can keep more profit for their workers. We now have a black and a green variety of KTE tea. In the future we will have some blends utilizing their tea.
