Our Story

Make Tea an Experience

We moved to the Cowichan Valley from Vancouver in 2003, looking for a more restorative pace and a rural lifestyle. Our property began life as a dairy farm, and we started out growing herbs, flowers and vegetables, selling at local markets. Back then, we called it 'Artfarm' and we began to combine our love of the land with our love for tea, researching cultivation and processing of tea plants.

Now, our Teashop+Gallery+Tearoom is the home of tea culture in Canada.

We hand blend original recipe teas and tisanes, and grow and make our very own Canadian terroir tea. Our unique blends are made by hand with carefully sourced certified organic teas and ingredients from around the world.

Our hand-built ceramic teaware is crafted to accompany the flavours and enhance every sip.
