    JusTea is a non profit partnership with small-scale Kenyan tea farmers to produce premium whole leaf tea and bring social justice to their industry. Kenya is the world’s largest producer and exporter of black tea; production is around 300 million kilograms each year. The lion’s share of tea growing is done by  over 500,000 small-scale tea farms in the country that are small family owned and passed down the generations.  Currently, all tea in Kenya is, by systemic default,  processed in large industrial factories. The farmers only receive about 1% of what the consumer pays. This leaves the farmers in poverty and without a voice to change their circumstances. We are partnering with them to remove the middlemen, to give power to the farmers and to make beautifully hand crafted tea.
