Our story

Almost ten years ago, the co-founders of Tealirious met for the first time for a cup of tea. Since then we have been looking for the greatest teas together. We were often interested in teas that were hard or even impossible to find in North America. We started ordering teas overseas, however the small quantity prices were usually high and delivery often took too long.

A solution came naturally: we decided to start ordering the teas we enjoyed in slightly larger quantities, just enough to qualify for wholesale pricing. Over the years we’ve built a strong relationship with tea farmers, which allowed us to put our hand on some teas that were not meant for wholesale. We’d like to share this opportunity to experience new and unusual flavours of pure tea with like-minded tea lovers in Canada and in the United States.

To guarantee the quality of the tea over time, we avoid working with large tea sourcing companies and prefer to deal with farmers. More than that, we made a decision to avoid buying tea blends, and we source organic teas when possible. Our teas are fresh, since we order them in relatively small quantities.
