The International Roundtable for Sustainable Tea – THIRST – is an advocacy and action platform for the unified voices and activities of civil society organisations, national, local and international, from the global South and North, from tea producing and tea consuming countries.

We invite expressions of interest from civil society organisations of any size – including trade unions and other worker representatives, NGOs, campaigning organisations etc – in any country who are working on any aspect of improving the lives of the women and men producing tea and their families and communities.

We are currently developing our membership or association model, and welcome your suggestions for what would work best for you; eg annual membership with member organisations listed by name on this website OR a looser association coming together as and when needed in response to emerging issues in the tea sector OR simply being on a mailing list to be kept up to date with all the latest news and information about tea sustainability issues

Please do contact us to find out more or start the conversation.
