Cafédirect Fair Trade Hand-Picked Everyday Tea - Catering. Tea blending, like growing, is an art and we are very proud of our award-winning hand-picked tea. This bright refreshing blend is a careful balance of fine Fairtrade teas from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. We go to both Tanzania and Uganda to find fine teas with body and a distinctive rosy colour. We then blend them with Kenyan leaves, specially chosen for their fresh, delicate flavours. How to make the perfect cup of tea: Fill your kettle with fresh water as this has plenty of oxygen to release the tea's full flavour. Only boil the amount of water you need for your cuppa to be efficient with your energy use. Warm your teapot or cup and use one tea bag per person. When your water has boiled, leave it for a moment before pouring, so it won't scorch the tea. Leave to brew for 3-5 minutes, then add milk, sugar, honey, or a slice of lemon.
It takes an expert to grow excellent tea, that’s why we work with smallholder growers who nurture tea and really care about growing leaves that make our bright, refreshing brew taste as good as it does.
