Meet Michael Connelly (left) who, with his family, founded and owns Little Red Cup Tea based in Brunswick, Maine. The company sells MOFGA-certified organic and certified Fair Trade tea sourced from China. The Connelly family partners directly with the worker-owned cooperatives that grow and process the tea to reduce the number of steps from field to cup. Find their tea in stores and cafes around Maine and throughout the country, as well as online. Says Michael’s son Martin Connelly, "We only sell organic tea because we believe that organic tea is a net positive – more sustainable for the farmers and processors we partner with in China … better for our customers; ultimately it is, in a small way, better for the world."
