Algonquin Tea Company Organic Teas

Algonquin Tea Company Organic Teas

The Algonquin Tea Company’s line of delicious and healthy organic herbal tea blends are now available at From the Kitchen to the Table! Each of the six varieties is a blend of hand picked wild and organically grown herbs whose medicinal potencies have been well-known for thousands of years.

The Algonquin Tea Company’s philosophy is based on close relationships between the earth and the herbs which take root and flourish in its rich soil, and humanity through which the special knowledge of the herbs’ soothing and healing properties have been passed down through generations.

Harvested in the wilderness of Algonquin Park

The herbs used in Algonquin Tea Co. teas are wildcrafted; handpicked from the wild, in a sustainable manner, picking only amounts a deer would graze. Those herbs which are less readily available in the wild are organically grown using no chemicals or pesticides, and harvested with care by hand. The natural herbs are harvested in canoes by glistening rivers, in warm morning fields of flowers and cool spring valleys full of roots.

In keeping with their commitment to sustainable and ecologically friendly practices, all herbs are naturally dried, and non-bleached tea bags filled by hand, and packed in Canadian-made packaging made with recycled materials.

Beyond being an all natural, eco-friendly product, Algonquin Tea Co. teas are delicious, and the six unique blends each offer a variety of health and spiritual benefits. The subtle aromas in each carefully mixed blend will satisfy the palate of everyone from the average tea drinker to the most gourmet connoisseur. Toronto Life Magazine included Algonquin Tea on its list of 100 Must Try Before You Die Tastes, describing the teas as, “an invigorating taste of southern Ontario’s wilderness”.
