Do you work for asda's marketing department?

TimeofChange Tue 25-Jun-13 18:53:30

Are they Fairtrade?

hugoagogo Tue 25-Jun-13 18:54:54

No I work at the library. confused

in rl no one will listen to me rave about the rwandan tea sad and now you think I am some marketing person...

JamieandtheMagicTorch Tue 25-Jun-13 18:56:35

what does it taste like?

I am a bit of a traditional-taste tea lover. ie don't like Lapsang Souchon (?sp)

Another request for a taste review!

hugoagogo Tue 25-Jun-13 19:00:33

It's not fairtrade sorry.

Um it tastes like tea, but extra nice. We used to always have assam or english breakfast until we discovered the Rwandan, if that helps.

It's a black strong tea. <drools>

Never had Rwandan tea, Rwandan coffee can be nice.

YANBU to enjoy the taste.
YABU for not buying fairtrade tea.

Slightly malty, but not as that sweet maltyness that you get with for instance-Yorkshire tea.

ReluctantBeing Tue 25-Jun-13 19:02:14

I might give it a go.

hugoagogo Tue 25-Jun-13 19:03:30

Ignore that 'as' - it makes no sense.

Hmm, might give that a go. I was always a Twinings Assam fan, then earlier this year I found I didn't like it as much. Currently, the house tea is Yorkshire Hard Water - very nice.

HeathRobinson Tue 25-Jun-13 19:05:48

Ha ha, x-post. Maybe not for me, then. grin

Lilithmoon Tue 25-Jun-13 19:07:50

Is there any particular reason you don't buy Fair Trade OP?

TimeofChange Tue 25-Jun-13 19:09:49

All foods from the third world should be Fair Trade.

BridgetBidet Tue 25-Jun-13 19:13:05

I dunno but I want to go to Rwanda. A friend of mine is working there and it looks amazingly beautiful. Their national parks are stunning.

hugoagogo Tue 25-Jun-13 19:13:11

Oh jeeps! Can one now get flamed for not buying fair trade? shock

JamieandtheMagicTorch Tue 25-Jun-13 20:03:45

Are we sure it isn't Fair Trade?

JamieandtheMagicTorch Tue 25-Jun-13 20:05:46

Just looked. Doesn't mention it's Fair Trade. Shame

just a reminder that issues around fairtrade are complex and there are many ethical alternatives that do not carry the fairtrade mark because they cannot afford it -particularly the case for smaller producers.

never the less, still better than giving no thought at all to ethical purchasing;how our purchase choices greatly affect others.

Apileofballyhoo Tue 25-Jun-13 21:45:21

Does everybody buy fair trade everything or is it just tea that gets pounced on?

AlbertaCampion Tue 25-Jun-13 21:46:17

Thanks for the tip OP! I love strong, malty black tea, but have never tried the Rwandan. Current favourite is Kenyan.
