    How much thinking do you do about your tea-drinking ?

    Post by papa_umau on Thu 03 Aug 2017, 11:55 am

    Assuming youre a tea drinker I think its a safe bet to say that youll know if you take milk, or how many sugars you want.

    You might even have a strong opinion on whether its the tea bag or the milk that goes in first.

    But when youre brewing up your morning cup, maybe hurrying to get ready for the day ahead, Id take a guess that youve never given a thought as to how the tea leaf made it into your cup.

    From Roderick Stuart of the Huffington Post.

    Read all of Roderick's reportHERE




    Britain is the greatest drinkers of black tea in the world, per capita, and over the years our tea-drinking habits have become a major part of our lifestyle.

    Ok, now we are drinking more coffee than we used to, and in fact, I drink nothing but green tea, but beverages like this are very important to us.

    There was a programme about exactly that on the telly a few days back.

    I am well aware that the tea-pickers are paid slave-wages for picking the tea that we drink.

    What I have done to try to change that is to always make sure that I buy Fairtrade tea.

    It is a wee bit more expensive, but if the pickers are getting a better pay through Fairtrade then I am happy about that.

    Nice one Zathrus.

    I buy Fairtrade coffee for the wife and anytime I buy black tea I get it Fairtrade too.

    Sadly, I have not found a decent Fairtrade green tea with lemon yet.

    Correction: I have found Clipper Green Tea with Lemon online.

    Yes, the indication is right; I do drink a lot of tea and I like it from Fairtade too.

    When I am out shopping I often watch other people ignoring the Fairtrade goods either because they are more expensive or they are stuck with one brand.

    They need to try it, as if they do they will not be disappointed.

    Yes some of the Fairtrade products like tea, for instance, are a bit more expensive than the budget brands, but I have found that the quality and taste is well worth the few extra pennies.

    Guilty! Although I don't drink much tea nowadays, preferring Yorkshire or PG and living with Twinings almost on my doorstep. I should start thinking about Fairtrade.

    Yes, it was my guilty feelings that made me go to the Fairtrade products.
