Queen of Teas

Local artisan tea producer Monarch Tea Co. knows that there is more to tea than dried leaves. Based in Hamilton and using a variety of unique local ingredients whenever available, owner Katie Cyr lovingly creates each bespoke loose leaf tea by hand even creating custom blends based on personal taste and desired health benefit. Take for example “Garden Party” which uses a soothing blend of Egyptian chamomile, rose petals and mint to create a calming tea that aids with digestion while helping to combat anxiety. Each package is closed with a combination of sourced fabrics and hand sealed with a wax stamp. Available for $10/50g, enough for 25 to 30 cups of tea, Monarch Tea Co. products can be found at Be Yoga & Wellness and Anise Apothecary in Burlington or James North General Store in Hamilton or purchased online.
