January is National Hot Tea Month

Baby, it's cold outside! Remember that tea is a great way to warm up and, just as importantly, fill up with disease-fighting antioxidants. Also, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard University have published research that theanine, an ingredient in tea, strengthens the immune system. Just what we need during these cold winter months!

This is a great time to develop a tea-drinking habit. Keep warm, baby!

Can your cup of tea help a farmer across the world?

Absolutely! A Fair Trade Certified&trade label ensures that the entire tea supply chain -- from garden to market -- has undergone inspection and certification for certain standards of quality and social responsibility. The Fair Trade Certified&trade label guarantees that tea workers receive a fair wage, decent working conditions, as well as additional revenue for their communities. Workers have spent such additional revenue on community vaccinations, continuing education and re-forestation programs.

So, when you purchase Fair Trade Certified&trade tea, you are helping farmers, their communities and the environment. You're contributing to a better world!
