A bit about Xiaohusai
Xiaohusai is a social enterprise working to better tea farmers' lives in a village in southwest China. We founded Xiaohusai in 2016 as a small group of high school students based in Shanghai.
We source organic tea straight from the plantations of Xiaohusai village, ensuring fair pay for tea farmers. From packaging design to marketing to product innovation, we handle the entire journey of our tea from supplier to customer.
100% of our profits go toward need-based scholarships for the children of tea farmers. As of 2020, we have empowered 4 children to continue their education by raising over $9,000 in tuition.
In 2018, we were recognized as young entrepreneurs at WeWork's Creator Awards Shanghai. We've also won the EARCOS (East Asia Regional Council of Schools) Global Citizenship Community Grant twice. Most recently, we were invited as guest speakers to the World Youth Economic Forum hosted by Yale, with over 1,000 students in attendance.
We regularly attend events around Shanghai, such as Commune Market and Concordia International School Shanghai's Christmas Bazaar. We also visit Xiaohusai (the village) every year.
