Why we love it
Nutty and delicate with a little bit of a whimsy. Popcorn tea has actually been around for a while. It started as a Japanese drink using green tea and toasted rice, but now it's a bonafide special tea all on its own. The official name is Genmaicha tea, but no matter what you call it we've heard from many a tea-lover that this quickly became their new favorite.
How it does good
Giving back to the communities in Rwanda
Tea sourcing can sometimes negatively impact the regions where tea is grown. teapigs fights against this by supporting communities in Gisenyi, Rwanda, where their teas come from. They use their business model to make a difference. They work with organizations that provide care for disabled children and young adults in Rwanda and make donations towards the hidden costs of education. On top of that, they’re doing their part for the environment. Teas come from high-quality, well-run tea estates, and the packaging is fully plastic-free.
supporting key causesDonations from the English breakfast tea go toward The Point Foundation in Rwanda. They also contribute to the hidden costs of education with donations to the UCC Children's School.
