I love both waking up and winding down with a warm cup of tea. It’s not only comfort in a cup, but it can also give a boost, promote relaxation, or offer nourishment – all depending on what’s in it. When it comes to what you steep, consider everything that is in your cup. Choose to sip what is good for your body and for the planet (it’s no surprise that the two are correlated).

Lemon Lily Natural & Organic Loose Leaf Tea When steeping your favourite teas, the last thing on your mind should be the harmful chemicals soaking in your cup. Lemon Lily only uses the finest natural and certified organic tea and ingredients to provide you with fresh, healthy and delicious teas.

Matcha Ninja It is said that one cup of matcha offers the nutritional value of up to 10 cups of green tea! But beware of low quality matcha which may still be loaded with pesticides, heavy metals

Traditional Medicinals A hot tea can offer much more than comfort. These medicinal teas can benefit healing and provide relief with their high quality herbs.

Buddha Teas  Known for their hgh-quality single-herb teas, and some excellent blends as well. Treat yourself to uncommon, hard-to-find herbal teas for a new tea experience.

Seabuckthorn Wellness Matcha This caffeine-free tea is made from seabuckthorn leaves, organically grown on the Canadian Prairie. It is non-GMO, vegan, wild crafted and organic, gluten-free, soy free, dairy free, nut free, and cruelty free. This unique matcha is great for strengthening the immune system, increasing energy, and promotes clear, radiant skin.

Wize Monkey Coffee Leaf Tea This tea steeps and tastes similar to green or herbal teas, but is made from organic arabica coffee leaves! While coffee can only be harvested three months a year, these leaves can harvested year-round, providing full time employment for the farmers. Wize Monkey teas have 20% more antioxidants than green tea, and less caffeine.

Numi Tea Our favourite bagged tea makes their sachets from natural, biodegradable filter-paper (as a bonus, they only use organic teas, and their packaging is recyclable and made from 85% post-consumer waste, and printed on soy-based inks).

Boreal Wildcraft’s The Wall Bagged tea is convenient for on the go, but if you’re enjoying at home or the office, skip the bags and use this beautiful hand blown glass infuser that is handmade from 100% borosilicate glass. It comes in right and left handed mugs, and is safe to put directly onto the stove so you don’t need to use a tea pot!

Hugo Didier Céramiste You’ll often find this mug with a warm drink on Lisa’s desk when you visit the office! She loves her “Not Made in China” mug, handcrafted in Montreal by kind people doing good business.

Lunitouti Reusable Tea Bags Most disposable tea bags are manufactured using paper that’s been bleached with chlorine, and then sealed with thermoplastic and coated in epichlorohydrin and dioxin to strengthen the paper. When steeped in water, it has carcinogenic effects. Instead, opt for loose leaf teas in something clean and reusable, like these, handmade with organic cotton and hemp in Montreal.
