Now Available at The Open Book--Ajiri Tea!

Ajiri Tea was started with the social mission of creating employment for the people of western Kenya and of educating the local orphans. Through the sale of Ajiri Tea, they hope to create a sustainable cycle of community employment and education. Ajiri means "to employ" in Swahili, the national language of Kenya.

Ajiri buys their tea from a tea factory in the Kisii district of Kenya and employs women in Kisii to handcraft the box labels, beads, and twine. All profits are sent back to the community through their donation to the Ajiri Foundation to educate orphans by paying their school fees and purchasing their books and uniforms. By supporting farmers, employing women to create the unique handmade labels on every tea box, and paying school fees for orphans, they hope to make a difference in Kenya today and in the future.

Ajiri Kenyan Black Tea is exceptionally full-bodied and smooth. It is grown in the Kisii Hills of western Kenya, an area known for its abundant rainfall and fertile soil. We're terrifically excited to be carrying such a high-quality product and supporting such a worthy cause.
