There is nothing but joy at the bottom of our teacup - for you, our farmers and the environment.

 

At Tetley, we bring you a warm and comforting world with every cup of our finest blends. We strive towards creating not merely the perfect brew but also a sustainable environment and better lives for our farmers.

Ethical Tea Partnership

Tetley is one of the founding members of the Ethical Tea Partnership, committed to improve the conditions of farmers growing our tea around the world. The ETP works with a vision to create a socially just, environmentally sustainable and thriving tea industry.

Using independent monitors to assess its performance based on the criteria laid out in the ETP standards, this initiative tackles the complex issues faced by the global tea industry.

Improving the Lives in Assam

Together with UNICEF and ETP we have launched a commitment on tea to improve the lives of women and children in Assam's tea communities. 

Over the last three years, we have helped 35,000 girls stay safer from the risk of violence, abuse and exploitation.

ETP and UNICEF are now launching a second phase of the programme called "Improving the lives of women and children in Assam's tea communities" - a significant scaleup in the programme.

Rainforest Alliance

We believe in farming practices that minimize the impacts on the environment and act towards safeguarding it. 

Working closely with organizations like the Rainforest Alliance is an integral part of this process.

The Rainforest Alliance is a non-profit organization that aims at conserving the biodiversity and ensuring a sustainable livelihood through methods that transform business and land-use practices, and consumer behaviour.

Tetley's commitment to source all it's teas from Rainforest Alliance certified farms is a reflection of our dedication to the future of the tea industry.
