JusTea Beverages Inc. (JusTea) offer unique, premium-grade teas sourced from small-scale farmers in Kenya.
The company works with small-holder farmers in Kenya to produce artisanal, flavourful teas for tea drinkers across the globe. JusTea offers a range of Kenyan teas, including: Black Teas that are sweet and complex, and superb with a splash of milk and sugar; African Chai that is blended with a unique bouquet of spices, with a totally different flavour profile than Indian masala chai; Earl Grey, flavoured with cold-pressed bergamot oil grown organically in the Mediterranean sun; and Chamomile or Peppermint that includes calming lemongrass notes.
The delightful packaging in a triangle shaped box helps it stand out among the rectangular tea boxes on grocery shelves. Sorting, blending and packaging is done in a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) certified production facility to ensure product safety.
JusTea was established in Vancouver in 2014, after the owners were inspired by charitable work they had started in Kenya. Nearly 90% of youth aged 18-28 in the rural tea-growing areas of Kenya are unemployed — JusTea helps create sustainable jobs that stimulate these struggling economies. The company also works to educate customers about life in Kenya and the tea growing economy, by telling the story of the farmers they work with and raising awareness about the issues they face.
