By buying high quality, artisan crafted Nepalese tea, you can count yourself as a part of the solution for Nepalís problems. My friend, Jeni, of Jeniís Tea witnessed first-hand the devastating 7.8 earthquake in Nepal and the subsequent humanitarian crises resulting from the embargo that denied Nepal of 70% of critical imports for nearly 9 months. She advocates trade rather than aid, to create long-term stability for this struggling country.
