    International Tea Day is celebrated on May 21st to bring attention to issues within the tea production industry and to highlight the vulnerable situations many tea workers face. Tea pickers play a crucial role in the industry as they are responsible for plucking tea leaves from the plants. Despite their crucial role, tea pickers are often underpaid and work in difficult conditions. The tea industry is complex and lacks transparency, making it challenging to address issues faced by tea pickers. To support the improvement of their working conditions and ensure they receive fair wages, consumers must demand more transparency from large companies that influence the tea industry.

Jethi Kupi is a first-flush Darjeeling that will transport you to the foothills of the Himalayas, where it is grown on the Rohini estate at around 1000 metres of elevation.
    As the weather warms up across some of the world's greatest tea-producing countries, tea bushes are pushing out their first buds and tiny leaves. Tea pickers will be entering the fields, and tea artisans will be starting to produce some of the world's finest teas.
