Ajiri Tea - Kenyan Black Tea

While attending the World Tea East Expo, we found new products to carry in The Rosemary House, one of which is this Ajiri Tea, a Kenyan Black Tea. Grown by small-scale farmers in western Kenya, the packaging is handmade using dried bark from banana trees and designed and crafted by the women in the region.  'Ajiri' means 'to employ' in Swahili, and that fits right in with their mission and goal to create employment for women in western Kenya and to educate orphans in their communities.  100% of the Ajiri Tea Company's net profits are returned to the Kisii community through the Ajiri Foundation to provide educational assistance to orphans of western Kenya.
