REAL CANADIAN TEA, SUPPORTING REAL CANADIAN WOMEN
Together, We Can Affect Change.
Sarjesa Inc. is a socially focused tea company, supporting local violence prevention programming for women in crisis through the sale of high quality tea.
In Canada, violence towards women is a large and growing issue. With so many missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada, Sarjesa Inc. was tired of waiting for the system to change. Together, we as Canadians, have the ability to affect change through our everyday actions and purchases. That’s why 20% of profits from each box sold are donated to impactful violence prevention programs for women in crises. We believe that everyone benefits when women are supported, respected and empowered; and we think you do too.
Their blends are beautifully crafted in conversation with the land around us, made with a combination of Canadian grown herbs and international teas. They try their best to source only fair trade or organic when possible.
It all started with a final project for an Indigenous Studies Course, facilitated by Dr. Renae Watchman. As a class, we were challenged to think about resistance within our everyday experience. One morning, on her way to school, Alexandra went to her favourite local coffee shop. Looking down at their array of beverages, she was struck with a thought. Here she was, purchasing product that supported small businesses and Indigenous communities elsewhere in the world. What would the effects be if there was a tea that supported small, local businesses, and provided consumers with the ability to support local marginalized communities? Thus, Sarjesa Inc. was born.
Make a tea and share a story, change starts here.
