JusTea was founded when the Bain family (from Canada) met the Katah family (from Kenya), and learned the challenges that small-scale farmers in Kenya face. The mission was born to create new opportunities for employment, pay higher wages, and reinvest in tea-farming communities. This relationship and mission is at the core of everything we do.
JusTea is the first North-American partner for this cooperative's organic herbal teas. Over 80% of the employees are women and they support hundreds of farmers in their community.
