There is nothing but joy at the bottom of our teacup - for you, our farmers and the environment.

 

At Tetley, we bring you a warm and comforting world with every cup of our finest blends. We strive towards creating not merely the perfect brew but also a sustainable environment and better lives for our farmers.
 

 

Ethical Tea Partnership

Tetley is one of the founding members of the Ethical Tea Partnership, committed to improving the conditions of farmers growing our tea around the world. The ETP works with a vision to create a socially just, environmentally sustainable and thriving tea industry. Using independent monitors to assess its performance based on the criteria laid out in the ETP standards, this initiative tackles the complex issues faced by the global tea industry.

Rainforest Alliance 

We believe in farming practices that minimize the impacts on the environment and act towards safeguarding it. Working closely with organizations like the Rainforest Alliance is an integral part of this process.

 

We are extremely proud that 100% of Tetley black and green teas are Rainforest Alliance certified. The green frog seal on our packs indicates that our farmer’s plantains have been audited against rigorous certification standards that require meaningful steps toward long-term environmental, social, and economic sustainability.

By choosing Tetley teas, you are participating in something bigger than yourself. With this one small choice, you are contributing to a larger movement for positive change – one that supports the livelihoods of farmers who are similarly committed to building a more sustainable world.
