KENYAN BLACK TEA Sips by AJIRI TEA
Founded in 2008 by Sara and Kate Holby, Ajiri Tea is a women-owned and women-run business started with the social mission of creating employment for the people of western Kenya, and educating local orphans. Ajiri comes from the Swahili word "to employ,” and this brand specializes in Kenyan tea handpicked on small-scale farms.
Instead of just short-term aid, they have found a way to create a sustainable cycle of employment and education where it is truly needed, and are bringing us an incredible product as well. Ajiri Tea employs women in the Kisii district of western Kenya to produce the handmade labels and decorative features of each box of tea.
This particular black tea is robust and smooth. It’s strong enough to help you take on the day, but polite enough to give you an afternoon lift. All profits from the tea go directly towards orphans' school fees and the purchase of books, uniforms, and school supplies.
