Where Does Your Tea Come From?
When most people think of a tea plantation, they think of the images you see on the sides of boxes, of smiling women plucking leaves in lush green fields. This can be misleading. In reality the tea world can be obscure and murky, with workers suffering low pay, punishing hours and other forms of exploitation.
With Teatulia you can be confident that every leaf has been planted, tended, picked and packed by workers who are treated properly. We provide our employees with healthcare, education and good wages.
Most of our employees in Bangladesh are women; they are simply more skilful when it comes to judging and picking the leaves. We put women at the centre of our community, and many of our growers are part of our innovative cattle-lending scheme.
