Who picked my tea?

There is nothing like a nice cup of tea... But have you ever thought about where your tea comes from?

Many popular British blends include tea from Assam in India, where the people who picked it - most of them women - are paid poverty wages and live in appalling conditions.

The 'Big 6' British tea brands - PG Tips, Twinings, Typhoo, Yorkshire Tea, Tetley and Clipper - are well aware about this but aren't doing enough to challenge it.

We won't let them get away with this anymore. Please add your voice by asking the big brands: 'Who picked my tea?'

To make your message more powerful, please add a sentence on why this issue matters to you.

Your email will go to the brands’ customer service teams. If you hear back from them and want some pointers on how to respond, please email us on campaign@traidcraft.org.

**Update** Yorkshire Tea and Twinings have published lists of their suppliers in Assam. If you want to congratulate them, just email Yorkshire Tea on hello@taylorsofharrogate.co.uk and Twinings on twinings.direct@twinings.com.
