We recently travelled with our family of five to the hill country in Sri Lanka, to visit the local tea plantations. These plantations are where we source the fairly traded organic ingredients we use in our blends. We were fortunate enough to spend time with some of the growers and their local communities. This trip, more than ever, emphasised the importance of the fairly traded concept and the positive impact it can have on the local community.

We were joined by local photographer Nic Stephens who captured moments of this journey and then created a short film. We wanted to share this with you, so you can see where our ingredients come from and some of the beautiful people and communities who are responsible for growing them. This is the first film we’ve made like this and we are excited to bring you part two next year.

With love, The team at Love Tea
