Today I got ginger pu'er tea on sale from T2's unloved teas crate, which has turned out to be quite nice. Pu'er is very sort of...earthy, and that seems to go well with ginger.

My father sent me a link a little while ago to a radio program he caught (he's living in the past; periodically he still says "wireless", mostly he calls his radio his "transistor" - though to his credit he managed to find the thing online and link me to it) about exploitation and unethical working conditions and tea plantations which I think pertains to the company that T2 sources their tea from, and I still haven't got round to listening to it. Anyway, I may have to do some research and see what's going with regard to being an ethical tea drinker. I drink a lot of tea, so I feel I should know.

I don't think I've tried Pu-er. Maybe I should go check out the Unloved Tea shelf at my local T2

I usually drink Dilmah, which is supposed to be very socially responsible but I don't know how accurate that is.

I'd love to hear the info you find on tea if you do research it.

Do you have a link to the tea radio program?
