Sustainable Gift Guide: For the Tea Drinker

One of my new favourite brands is Hampstead Tea,  an ethical tea company that sources its teas from Makaibari – the first biodynamic tea estate in the world! If you are unfamiliar with this term “biodynamic” (as I was) then it is basically a fancy term meaning that the animals, plants, people and soil all work together to create a forever living environment.

Achieving this certification is something that their founder, Kiran, was hugely proud of – and rightly so! By growing tea in such a way that takes into account the wider ecosystem of the estate, Hampstead Tea are able to maintain total harmony with nature. In fact, even Prince Charles has recognised their incredible achievements by awarding Hampstead Tea the “Best in Category” at the Organic Food Awards!
