Women in Tea Symbol

You might notice that we have different symbols on some of our bags of tea.  One of our symbols is our Women in Tea.  Bags with this symbol are teas that come from a farm that is woman owned and or managed.

One of our employees traveled to New Zealand where she learned the white camellia is the symbol of women’s suffrage.  In 1893, New Zealand became the first country in the world to allow all women to vote. We borrowed their white camellia symbol and added a “W” to represent our women in tea concept.  This symbol recognizes women in both leadership and ownership roles at their farms in a male dominated industry.
