CAMPAIGN: Fair Trade Month


 In celebration of Fair Trade Month, we continue to share delicious and fun recipes that feature wonderful Fair Trade products and these cocktails are no exception. Created using Fair Trade Numi Tea, these drinks will inspire you to host a Fair Trade cocktail party of your own. Enjoy!

"I gave a party with drinks inspired by Numi's expertly crafted teas.  Their unique blends' pure flavors suggested pairings with fresh fruit, juices, spirits, and champagne.  As my guests talked about the health benefits of tea, a friend raised her cocktail and said, "This is what I call being good to myself!" -James Labe, Tea Sommelier
