Dear Valued Customer:  Effective immediately due to the small size of our family business and the associated costs of operating nationwide, we will only be offering our botanical products within Manitoba.  We thank you for your patronage and apologize for any inconvenience.

Our Sandy Hook Soap Factory personal care products will continue to be offered throughout Canada without issue.


Black tea is revered as the beverage of choice in many parts of the world.  Classic and enduring, rich in colour with a more penetrating flavour.  Usually has a higher concentration of caffeine when compared to other teas.  Black tea has its origins in the same plant which produces both green and white teas, the Camellia sinensis.  The mark of distinction is found in the deep dark colour which is achieved through the fermentation process.  If you prefer for your tea to have a milder flavour a dash of honey, milk, almond or soy milk will create a delightful sipping experience.

Here you will find a good selection of the world's finest imported black teas which will provide you with unsurpassed quality, aroma and quality.  All varieties offered on this page we have re-packaged in Canada and obtained from our supplier Mountain Rose Herbs of Oregon.  Mountain Rose is certified organic through OTCO and the USDA and the selections featured here were certified Earth Kosher with several certified Fair Trade through the Fair For Life program.  We are not a certified organic facility but handle all botanicals with great respect packaging as follows:


We package our Loose Leaf Teas in:

90 gram kraft paper eco-bags vegetable poly lined (3.17 ounces)

45 gram sustainable cello bags compostable (1.58 ounces)

25 gram sustainable cello bags compostable (.776 oz.)**



Attention to the proper amount of tea required for a flavourful beverage results in an exceptional brew following the recommended steeping time.  A proper brew offers unsurpassed aroma and taste producing a non-bitter sipping experience.  If tea needs to be stronger you need to add more tea, not steep longer.  Tea becomes bitter and far less enjoyable with extended brewing time as too many tannins are released resulting in an astringent taste.  This being said we have found the Assams and English Breakfast to be quite forgiving to the odd forgotten and overbrewed pot of tea.   



An old world map pinpoints Assam, India the origin of this malty full bodied black tea which stands up very well to milk and sugar making it a wonderful breakfast choice from Organic Teas Canada.
