This is Evans and his family, a small tea farmer in Kenya. Cottage Garden Teas is participating in a program that purchases the tea directly from this farmer, allowing him to make 2 1/2 times as much as other tea farmers in Kenya. They have been trapped in a cycle of poverty that our program solves. Buying direct from the farmer makes his wage sustainable. We asked him, “what will you do with the money?” He said, “send my daughters to school.” His wife said, “build a house with indoor plumbing.” Cottage Garden is so excited to be selling Kenyan farmer-direct tea. AND IT’S DELICIOUS.
