Drink tea and change the world.
We make iced tea as it should be – from best ingredients, organic & Fairtrade. Our whole-leaf tea comes from cooperatives & plantations around the world. The green and black teas are from the Sri Lankan mountains; our rooibos grows under the hot South African sun. We pay higher prices for the ingredients and thereby support fair, dignified farming. We go beyond Fairtrade: every bottle sold gives an additional 5 cents to the Lemonaid and ChariTea Foundation. By doing this, we’ve already collected more than 2 million euros for social projects in the growing regions.
The ChariTea story
Why did we start ChariTea? It’s pretty simple: we want to play our part in making a fairer world, through a Fairtrade product that also supports social projects in the growing regions of our ingredients. Obviously, we don’t want you to drink our teas just because they’re for a good cause, but because they taste fantastic. In 2008, we quit the day jobs and got going, brewing tea after tea in Jakob’s kitchen, adding a splash of fresh juice here, a dash of agave syrup there. We got some friends together to pick out the best – natural iced teas which simply hadn’t been around until that point. Pure good taste, just like homemade.
