More Tea and Trade

I wrote the Upton Tea Company to request that they carry fair trade tea, and they wrote back this morning to inform me that the DO buy tea from several Fair Trade Certified Estates. Since they don't pay the "Fair Trade Premium", however, they can't advertise these teas as Fair Trade.

I was thrilled, and encouraged to write more letters to my favorite companies inquiring about their products. It helps get the word out, too.
