Tea Tasting for the Global Tea Exchange

Join us for the unveiling of our biggest initiative yet - the Global Tea Exchange! 

We're thrilled to share the momentum of our first 24 hours of the Global Tea Exchange with a tea tasting hosted by our good friends at People's Grocery Coop. 

We'll be celebrating the launch of this new cultural exchange program with fresh teas direct from Nepal and India. The tea reached our warehouse on Friday, so you'll be drinking organic tea less than one week after it reaches the US.

Now let's talk about the program: The Global Tea Exchange's goal is to end the isolation of remote tea-producing communities. We've found that their extreme remoteness forces youth to choose between being "mountain and stuck in the past or "urban and modern." We want to create opportunities for youth to feel "mountain and modern" by giving them ways to interact with the outside world from their beautiful homes.

We'll do that through two-way cultural exchange between the US and Himalayas: a homestay program in mountains of India and Nepal and an international Fellowship for small tea producers. 

Come join us to learn more about this initiative and drink fresh tea! Free and open to all.
