The Black tea in our Earl Grey originates from the Putharjhora tea garden in a region of India that serves as a gateway to Northeast India and Bhutan. The garden was rescued by the current owners, a er years of neglect and bad agricultural prac ces. The community was su ering from low wages, bad treatment and excessive exposure to harmful pes cides widely used on non-organic tea estates. Now the estate is a beacon of hope in the area - the estate workers are empowered to make decisions, are no longer exposed to chemicals and bene t from a Fairtrade partnership with the management. It is one of the best examples of worker empowerment we have seen in India. A more natural ecological balance has recovered and the ora and fauna on the estate is rich. The compos ng of materials on the estate to provide nutrients to the tea bushes is a shining example of how organic systems really work on a large scale. Bergamot oil from Italy is added to the black tea as the quintessential Earl Grey flavour, along with delicate Marigold petals from Egypt.
