Is Craft Tea a thing yet? We’re going to make it a thing.
The Valley Alchemist is hand-blending loose leaf tea in The Blue Mountains, Ontario. Founded on the principle that tea is one of civilization’s greatest gifts, we’re excited to be building a tea company which takes our social and environmental responsibilities seriously.
Our tea leaves and flower petals are Rainforest Alliance Certified. The Rainforest Alliance, while not necessarily organic, audits organizations for all three pillars of sustainability - social, economic, and environmental. In addition to being aligned with our ethos, the flavour and quality of the ingredients we source is undeniable.
We believe you should have your tea and drink it too.
The packaging we use is minimal or reusable, and one of the things we love about loose leaf tea is that there are no micro-plastic tea bags headed to the landfill - just rinse your infuser and steep again! If you prefer the convenience of bagged tea, we have 100% compostable and biodegradable infuser bags, which can go straight in your backyard compost or municipal green bin.
When we look to the future, what excites us most is adding locally grown ingredients to our teas, and increasing availability at retail so it’s easier for you to find.
Each batch of tea we blend is cupped and tasted to ensure quality and consistency before we pack and sell it.
Nothing makes us happier than hearing people say they like our tea so much, they are no longer drinking anything else. We’re very proud of our product line, and we hope you enjoy drinking our tea as much as we enjoy making it for you.
