Seven Sisters Tea is a brand that was born from a love of tea and a hunch.
In early 2011, my wife Shawna and I began experiencing tea in a whole new way: loose tea! Small indie tea shops we visited across North America were producing great tasting tea and fruit infusions. It was so removed from the Earl Grey or English Breakfast tea bags we grew up watching our parents and grandparents drink. We already had a successful coffee business that had retail locations and, quite frankly, a little extra space. I began working with a good friend of mine on a few branding ideas and presto: The Seven Sisters were born. It was now time to educate and and put some knowledge behind the brand we had created. Tea school, reading, sourcing and testing; we did our homework. I know you will agree when you try our teas!
One of the main obstacles in this business is getting clients who have never purchased loose tea to ‘belly up to the tea bar’. To smell and see the difference between each tea. I know at one point I was that awkward customer in the tea shop for the first time and I know how it feels to look at 100 teas and get overwhelmed. You will be happy to know there is not a tea snob anywhere in sight at our stores or online. Tea is fun so we figure buying tea should be fun too! Shop online or better yet, drop into one of our 4 locations around the GTA. Experience for yourself the scents each one of these fresh, hand picked teas has to offer.
Right now we have over 120 different teas and infusions scattered over the Seven Sisters Categories. The finest Matcha we could source to the most interesting Herbal concoctions you could imagine. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.
