The Zawadi Gift

Zawadi, meaning “gift” in Swahili, is the name we have given our delicious tea.

We chose this name because a portion of the profits we receive from Zawadi African Tea is donated to help the over one million children in Kenya who have been made orphans by the AIDS virus.

Donations reach Kenyan children through a non-profit organization called the Kenya Intervention/Prevention Project Group, International (www.kaippg.org).

It also represents a gift of economic independence to Kenyan tea farmers who for many years have barely earned enough to survive.

Zawadi African Tea is chemically free grown and harvested by Kenyan family farmers, made from the best part of the Kenyan tea plant—the buds or tippy—making it Grade #1 tea.

Full of antioxidants that may help prevent cancer, heart disease and stroke, help people lose weight, as well as other health benefits.

As a Bay Area resident, I am happy to present and review this local company, finally making tea fairly traded to connoisseurs after hundreds of years of British economic colonialism. Zawadi Karibu Spiced Chai is a mild tea that gets the job done. The flavor is earthy and spicy without being overwhelming. I have been drinking it with sugar and soy milk, and it has been a joy to keep refilling the cup. Additionally, as the box mentions, I don’t seem to get the jitters that black tea and caffeine can sometimes give me. This unique tea is complemented by its easy pre-packaging, which is both convenient for the user and accessible for anyone to try. It is perfect for the season, and I’ve been keeping my snowman mug full.

Don’t miss the website for this company where sippers can read about the impact of colonialism on access in the tea trade of England, India, and the rest of Europe and the Middle and Near East, fair-trade in Kenya, and the Kenya AIDS Intervention/Prevention project.
