Assam’s modern slaves: the real price of a cup of Tetley tea

Poverty pay on tea estates in Assam fuels a modern slave trade ensnaring thousands of young girls. A Guardian/Observer investigation follows the slave route from an estate owned by a consortium, including the owners of the best-selling Tetley brand, through to the homes of Delhi’s booming middle classes, exposing the reality of the 21st-century slave trade.

Investigation by Gethin Chamberlain, filmed by David Niblock. Editor Rodrigo Vazquez, Assistant Editor Irene Baque, Producer Mary Carson, Editor Maggie O’Kane.
