For over 20 years, we operated as the Algonquin Tea Company, making herbal teas from amazing plants that grow in one of the truly beautiful places of the world — known to paddlers, campers and nature lovers as Algonquin Park (pronounced al-gone-kwin).

For years, many of our friends/customers asked for pairings of herbs with caffeinated teas and so, Wild Canadian Tea was born in 2021 – with different lines – the Algonquin Collection, Wild@Heart and a stand alone Pine Tea.  Our teas are available loose and in tea bags, online here, or in wonderfully supportive stores around the world.  I have created a company that has a consciously curated and  close relationship with the land, the plants, and with you.

The best ingredients are the wild ones.
