"Our mission is challenging the status quo as to where you think tea should come from."
We source amazing tea from North America and around the world, delivering it to you with prompt and engaging service. We love all things associated with tea including its history and preparation.
Reflecting on how far tea travels to Canada we began looking for alternatives that are closer to home. And to our surprise we found this amazing plant called Yaupon. At Grand River Tea we are home to Yaupon in Canada. Yaupon, is a sustainable indigenous plant which grows in Texas and is the only plant in North America to contain caffeine! Tea from the Asia, India and Africa travels approximately 15000 kms, Yaupon only travels approximately 2500KMS. We also offer another unique tea called purple tea and a selection of unique Canadian grown herbals.
