Texas Woman’s Tea launch empowers women farmers in Kenya

Women CEOs launch Tea Alliance with a mission

New, high-quality organic products also support Houston’s only infant food bank

I am excited about this business for several reasons. The third is being able to partner with another tea company owned by a very respected woman who is just as passionate about it as I am. “

– Robin Boykin-UENDURE Tea Company CEO


A Houston-area businesswoman’s quest to bring two high-quality, rare and healthy “wellness” teas to the United States led to a powerful alliance between two female CEOs.

Robin Boykin’s UENDURE Tea Company has just launched two organic teas that will ultimately help women farmers in Kenya provide for themselves and their families. These premium UENDURE teas are grown on an organic farm in Nandi Hills, Kenya run by Caroline Tormoi, CEO of Eldo Tea.

The economic needs of small-scale women farmers in Tormoi (less than five acres) are great. According to the Vienna-based World Poverty Clock, 4.1 million women in Kenya live below the standard poverty line of $ 1.90 per day, compared to 3.7 million men.
“As a social enterprise in the agro-industry that supports farmers, Eldo wants to enable the economic growth of our country. We work with over three thousand small farmers to meet the highest demands of the most demanding markets, ”Tormoi said.

Boykin is happy that his vision of bringing these new teas to Texas and the United States is making a difference on two continents. ” I have
I have long dreamed of having the opportunity to go global with my business, and Africa was an easy choice for several reasons: First, to be part of a solution to provide economic support to women farmers in Kenya. Second, source exotic and healthy tea from a fully organic farm with high standards. And finally, being able to partner with another tea company owned by a well-respected woman who is just as passionate about it as I am. “

Eldo Tea, an award-winning company recognized by the United Nations, is the sole supplier of these new UENDURE products. One is trendy purple tea, the other is Golden Tips white tea. Kenya is one of the world’s leading tea exporters. Purple tea has become extremely popular for its rich, exotic color and is considered to be the “newest” and healthiest breed of tea leaves.

“I was always on the lookout for the best thing for my (UENDURE) tea customers, and the more I learned about Purple Tea with its long list of health benefits, I knew it had to be part of our. arsenal of “wellness” teas, ”Boykin said.

UENDURE has a reputation for providing only high quality organic teas. It is also increasingly recognized for its commitment to focusing on recycled packaging materials and developing sustainable accessories. The line of durable accessories has grown with Boykin’s vision and product line.
