The Story - Ajiri means 'to employ' in Swahili. And that’s just what this company does by creating a sustainable cycle of employment for women in Kenyan villages. 100% of the profits go right back to the community, supporting job programs, and education for orphans.
The Tea - All that good is very good, but we wondered... how good is the tea? We tasted it. It knocked our socks off! And it won the Expo's "Best of Show" the year we were there. If you like a full-bodied, smooth, classically Kenyan black tea, you'll love Ajiri. It's Assam-like in flavor and takes a bit of milk beautifully. Try straight up black, or with a hint of mango or lemon!
The Box - The beautiful artwork on each box is handmade by village women, using handmade paper and dyed banana leaves. No two are alike. The adventure comes in seeing what Kenyan village scene will arrive for you!
