The Way of Tea and Justice, by Becca Stevens
Rev. Stevens writes of discovering the myth of fair trade in the tea market, the longing for justice among pickers and growers, and the desire to find teas to serve that were rooted in truth.
“Love Heals”-that is the brand name of products made by the women of Thistle Farms. Founded to give new life to women recovering from prostitution, trafficking, and addiction, Thistle Farms now includes the “Thistle Stop Café,” their tea room. Becca Stevens, an Episcopal priest, author of The Way of Tea and Justice, “opens up the strange and fascinating world of tea, stitching together stories about mindfulness, justice, healing, and community.”
