The Small Tea Cooperative - (Three types of tea from Assam, India.)

The small tea co-operative's involvement with several independent, small-scale tea growers from the state of Assam in northeast India began in 1999.

Since that time, the cooperative, working in partnership with Fertile Ground:  East/West Sustainability Network, has provided information, technical assistance and encouragement that's helped make it possible for young tea growers to cultivate, process and market organically-grown tea on a small-scale basis.

Our flavourful, naturally-grown teas from Assam are available in colourful handwoven cloth bags sewn by self-help group members or in paper bags.
  • English Breakfast Style Black Tea - a perfect start to the day!
  • Full leaf hand-made Green Tea - relaxing and flavorful
  • Fine-textured Black CTC tea - great for brewing chai!

Our wonderful Assam black and green teas in their beautiful Christmas embroidered linen bags are available at Edible Island store in Courtenay.

Proceeds support educational and technical support provided to farmers and independent tea growers by local non-profit Fertile Ground.   Learn more at
