Use only freshly boiled water, allow the tea to infuse for 3 to 5 minutes for a full flavour experience, and add milk and sugar to-taste. For our green teas, use water at around 85 degrees C.
We operate an equal pricing policy across all our sales of Reforest Tea. This means that all trade and retail customers are charged the same price per tea bag, regardless of the size of order. This means that everyone can enjoy the same impact for each and every cup of Reforest Tea.
All orders are sent UK First Class. Orders of more than £30 are shipped for free to a single UK address. For orders of less than £30, a fixed cost of £2 is charged per 25x pack. Please allow 2-3 business days for your order to arrive. Please contact us for shipping outside of the UK.
We make every attempt to ensure that goods are delivered to you in perfect condition. Occasionally things happen and we will make sure that any issues are resolved promptly according to your statutory rights. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
How we support projects
Our philosophy is to support worthwhile projects which have social and/or environmental impact (that is, people, nature and the planet) through tree planting and forest conservation. Typically we find that native trees or useful trees (such as fruit trees) planted and managed by local people typically have high impacts. Additionally all trees planted and conserved capture carbon dioxide during growth.
Impact per dollar
We use all profits -from Reforest Tea- and our best judgment to support the specific needs of individual projects to get the best impact per dollar. We are motivated by impact rather than number of trees, this means that we do not simply plant the cheapest trees available. The dollar cost of trees varies from project to project according to factors such as location country and species of tree planted.
Ethics and Sourcing
We take great care to ensure that the ingredients for our blends are sourced only from trusted, reputable suppliers, with robust social and environmental responsibility programs. All ingredients can be traced back to source, are fairly traded and ethically sourced from growers who look after the welfare of their employees and community. We particularly look for suppliers with tree-planting and forest stewardship programs, and note that our Indian Assam tea is shade-grown under trees.
Reforest Tea is a Social Business
We started a social business specifically to address the social and environmental issues associated with trees and forests using a financially sustainable business model. When you buy and enjoy Reforest Tea you can be confident that you are supporting worthwhile projects. Our motivations are to become 'tree millionaires'!
