that we offer you one of the world`s most sought after teas for an unbeatable low price? The answer is simple: since its early days in 1985, our supplier, the German "Teekampagne", believes in its "campaign principle"! The Tea Campaign Canada as its retailer follows these principles, which are:
We sell only high grade FTGFOP1 Darjeeling tea. Nothing else. Simplicity reduces costs.
We buy in bulk. Bulk saves money.
Teekampagne buys directly from the tea gardens in Darjeeling. No middlemen are involved.
All our teas are organic certified. Each batch is additionally tested on all kind of possible chemical residues. After each harvest the high graded teas are carefully selected by the "Teekampagne" and their teamasters. Only top qualities will make it to you!
Tea stores pretty well for long periods of time. The use of large packets saves on packaging, labeling and handling costs.
Most of our customers buy their year`s supply at a time. This saves shipping costs for them and warehouse costs for us.
We inform our customers about the arrival of a new harvest. Our customers spread the news. They help us to reduce marketing expenses. We pass these savings - like all other savings - along to our customers!

But as so many people search for a product at first on Amazon, it´s almost a MUST to be presented there. Ok, let´s see what happens...

The Event, which focused on engaging with the College community in a first person dialogue conversation about fair trade, was a great success. Over two hours, the volunteers spoke with close to 80 students in 2 to 5 five minute two-way dialogues, on the merits of the fair trade movement. With wonderful coffee offered and fair trade chocolate from Alter Eco, the event was complemented by single-origin, direct trade, and certified organic Darjeeling tea courtesy of Tea Campaign Canada, Ottawa. The outcome of the Event yielded great feedback and will hopefully be...
