Join us as we introduce our biggest initiative yet - the Global Tea Exchange! https://igg.me/at/globalteaexchange

We'll be celebrating the launch of this new cultural exchange program with teas direct from Nepal and India. The tea reached our warehouse this month, so we'll be pouring tea that's as fresh as it gets. We'll also have rewards from the campaign, including the oppotunity to get our new packaging and handmade naturally-dyed scarves from our Himalayan partners.

And all this is to support our new program: The Global Tea Exchange's goal is to end the isolation of remote tea producing communities. We've found that their extreme remoteness forces youth to choose between being "mountain and stuck in the past
or "urban and modern." We want to create opportunities for youth to feel "mountain and modern" by giving them ways to interact with the outside world from their beautiful homes.

We'll do that through two-way cultural exchange between the US and Himalayas: a homestay program in mountains of India and Nepal and an international Fellowship for small tea producers.

Come join us to learn more about this initaitive and drink fresh tea!

Launch party - Sprout!, People's Food Coop - PDX, Encore Chocolates and Tea - Olympia WA, NW Tea Fest - Seattle.
