I want you to fall in love with your favourite tea blend as if it is the best book you've ever read (I know you know how that feels). To look forward to starting your day with it, or unwinding with it, and to sharing it with the people that you care about the most. I want you to think about it when you haven't had a cup for a while. That - to me - is what it means to create great tea.
Tearrific was started in 2013 to share fun, unique tea blends with people that appreciate good tea as much as I do. We started off doing wedding and party favours and selling our blends at small local markets in our hometown of Calgary, AB.
My ultimate goal was to make premium loose leaf tea accessible to everyone. With this in mind, we opened The Tea Wagon, Canada's first loose leaf tea food trailer, in April 2015. We attend sporting events, markets, festivals, weddings, corporate events, movie nights, and everything in between! Loose leaf tea is not just for special occasions or fancy tea parties - we can make you a fantastic cup of tea in a field, when you are knee-deep in mud or snow, from our cheerful little green trailer.
Our teas became increasingly popular. People kept asking where they could purchase our blends when we weren't out and about. Tearrific decided to go back to our roots and start packaging our tea for retail sale outside of The Tea Wagon.
We measure and mix all of our hand-blended teas individually and without any machines (except a weighing scale). I ship them out myself and I am always happy to answer any enquiries personally. I want you to know that you are buying top-quality tea from someone who loves it just like as much as you do.
Tearrific is a one-woman show, but building this company has always been a team effort. This is why I constantly refer to Tearrific as "we". Some people say that it takes a village to raise a child, and I would say the same is true for a small business. All of my friends and family have been a part of this dream from the very start - from helping me at markets, to taking orders in The Tea Wagon, to purchasing and enjoying our blends... I am deeply grateful for their support and for the local business community in Calgary and the surrounding area. Wherever possible, I try to pass this support on to other small businesses like mine so others can be as fortunate as I am.
I am here if you have any questions or would like a recommendation on the best tea to suit your tastes. Feel free to contact me any time and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
