New Equal Exchange Products Offered by W/ELCA Coffee Project

Good Shepherd’s W/ELCA Coffee Project is excited to introduce three new caffeine-free Equal Exchange teas, Organic Ginger, Organic Green Tea with Ginger, and Organic Rooibos Chai.  The teas will be available starting on November 8 at the Country Store and into December!  The Organic Ginger tea is grown by the small-scale farmers of the Marginalized Organic Producers’ Association (MOPA) in Sri Lanka. The green tea in Organic Green Tea with Ginger comes from the Potong Tea Garden, located in northern India in the foothills of the Himalaya, and the ginger is from MOPA in Sri Lanka.

We’re also bringing back the Equal Exchange dark chocolate–this time in miniature! The 55% dark chocolate minis, with cocoa beans from farmer co-operatives in the Dominican Republic and Peru, sugar from co-operatives in Paraguay and vanilla from a co-operative in Madagascar, are 5 for $1.00, so you can have a sweet treat without the guilt!
