Infused With Impact

Introducing 'Infused with Impact'

Our commitment to crafting exceptional tea while actively benefiting the planet and supporting the communities involved.

Our deep-rooted philosophy is to inspire a love for tea. We unite with those who make our tea, fostering a brighter future. Amid industry and climate changes, we take positive action, collaborating with local partners to meet community needs and preserve tea quality. Our latest work is captured in our Sustainability Report.

In The Tea Gardens

Handpicking two leaves and a bud, we source a higher grade of tea for consistent taste and to better support our tea growing communities.

The tea communities make our tea blends. So, we work with local partners to get to the heart of how we can support them. From nutrition and education, to long-term climate resilience, we focus on making a difference that lasts.

Key achievements and programs:

  • Parntership with Child In Need Institute. Since 2019 we have helped 1046 women in Assam with maternity services and supported 886 children through a nutrition program
  • Supporting women in Kenya's tea gardens by aiming at improving the health of women and providing them with the choice to use menstrual cups through Ruby Cup

Sustainable Tea Production

From crop to cup, we uphold the quality of our tea whilst reducing our environmental impact.

When it comes to preserving the future of tea, the smallest changes can be the most sustainable. Many initiatives are undertaken in our flagship production facility in Emirates.

Our Ecovadis journey began in 2020, and we’re thrilled to have achieved a gold rating for three consecutive years. This means Ahmad Tea Emirates Factory now proudly stands among the top 3% of manufacturing companies globally.

  • Conscious Distribution

    Ensuring the survival of our business and the long-term viability of the planet

    Our positive impact flows beyond the tea gardens, with a proportion of our profits going to vulnerable communities around the world.

    For tea to thrive, we look beyond the gardens to the countries we supply. Introducing noncompetitive ways of working and inviting distributors to share local charity projects with us. With these practices in place, positive impact can flow from crop to cup.

    • Building climate resilience in rural Niger - together with Oxfam, we've supplied villages with their 1st drinking water and systems to manage the irrigation of land
