A tropical taste of summer in a cup!
Welcome to the Island, where the days are long, the sun is always shining, and your cup is always filled with perfectly chilled, fruity iced tea. This summer-y blend of strawberries, papaya, and Sencha green tea is a delight on the taste buds. Japanese Sencha has earthy, subtly sweet notes, and is delicious on its own. This mix from Granville Island Tea Co contains real pieces of dried strawberry and papaya. When brewed, the flavours of the fruit are released, creating a balanced mix of zesty sweetness. This is our go-to fruity tea, which is just as delicious served hot or cold.
SIZE: Choice of 50 or 100g loose leaf tea. Contains caffeine.
ABOUT GRANVILLE ISLAND TEA COMPANY
Their passion for tea shines through in every bag!
Owners and married team Deb and Mark Mercier from Edmonton, Alberta both had successful white collar careers, but decided to hang up their suit-and-tie lives to make a change. Deb had been in love with tea all her life, and Mark would bring back tea from all over the world when he traveled for business. Their passion for tea led them to open up their own tea shop, Granville Island Tea Company in 1999.
In the beginning, Deb and Mark were both hungry for more tea knowledge, and Mark sought a mentor (the president of a tea association) to study the ins and outs of the tea industry. His mentor taught Mark to trust his own instincts, listen to people, and understand their wants and needs. After years of studying and tasting thousands of teas, Deb and Mark believe there are no “good or bad” teas- it’s all about individual people and their preferences. They approach each customer with the challenge of finding the right tea for each person.
