Today on The Farm Report, Erin speaks to tea expert Sarah Besky, professor at the University of Michigan, about tea plantations and how tea workers often get into the world of tea production. Sarah also tells us about how the culture of tea production differs from country to country across the world. After the break, Erin speaks with Peter Rosenblum, professor at Bard College, about some of the darker aspects of tea plantations around the world. This program has been sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery. Today’s music provided by Takstar.

“Tea is not the same everywhere…because it’s made different by the context it is in. And similarly justice doesn’t mean the same thing everywhere.” [15:35]
