|Ceylon Organic Black Tea
This is a classic Ceylon tea from Sri Lanka. It is a light tea with delicate floral notes.
Koslande is one of the estates used in this blend of Ceylon organic tea. In Sri Lanka terms it is a medium sized tea estate covering 160 hectares (406 acres). It is situated in the Haputale Mountain Range in the region of Uva. Uva and Nuwara Eliya are Sri Lanka s highest elevation tea growing regions and are world renown for some of the finest teas in the world especially when they are at their seasonal best (in Koslande s case this is August).
addition to being organic certified, Koslande is also a member of the
Fair Trade Organization and has been a member since 1996. As of 2004 the
Fair Trade organization has re-invested USD $15,500.00 into projects
that directly benefit the workers. Some of the initiatives are:
Providing 20 Propane stoves and 20 sewing machines to workers. The
propane stoves had an immediate benefit to the 20 families which
received these cookers in that they did not have to go out and search
for firewood. The sewing machines were part of a program to encourage
the workers to earn additional income. During August of 2004 another 60
sewing machines are to be distributed to another 60 workers. Other
projects that are being planned: New Latrines for 85 families, new roofs
for 42 workers homes and upgrading two day care centers.
