27Teas is a woman-owned loose leaf tea company based out of Candia, NH. In addition to providing the world with great loose leaf tea options, they also have a social mission, donating a % of profits to clean water initiatives.
Below is the story behind 27Teas, as told by the owner and Chief Tea Lady, Margaret Gay.
"When I decided to start 27Teas, and create a New Hampshire based loose leaf tea company, I knew I wanted to be a part of something bigger and give back to the world while running a business I love.
I decided to start with the basics. What was the main ingredient in a cup of tea? Water. Clean and safe drinking water. Did you know that there are 2.1 billion people around the world who lack access to this basic human right? We wanted to help change this.
27Teas donates a percentage of profits to sustainable clean water and sanitation solutions. Not only will you be buying the best teas, sourced from throughout the world, but you are helping to provide basic human rights to those in need.
It is my hope that by buying tea from 27Teas you know that you are supporting more than just a small business. It is a way to share the experience of slowing down life, if only for a moment, to enjoy a cup of tea. Even more, it is a way to make a real impact on this world.
Come on this journey with me, and try out 27Teas.
Cheers to being part of something bigger than yourself"
