I’ve had to keep this new business under wraps for the better part of 2014, and somehow I managed not to spill the beans…err, tea leaves! If there was any doubt that I could keep a secret, this has to be at least some proof. This wasn’t easy because I’ve been so excited about this new venture and I love sharing what’s going on behind the scenes with you guys. Thankfully, the day is finally here and I can tell you all about The Oh She Glows Tea Shoppe which features our own line of loose leaf teas. This new business has been a major labour of love. Eric, myself, and our business partner Pete have worked so hard to make this dream come to life and we couldn’t be more proud of our organic, premium loose leaf tea blends.

Why tea?

The funny thing is, I was never a tea drinker until I met Eric during our last year of high school. Eric’s Irish and English roots made tea a staple in his diet since he was very young. During the early stages of dating, I’d be invited over to his house and we’d soon find ourselves sitting around the table with his family. A huge pot of tea would be brought over to the table surrounded by mugs, milk, sugar, and spoons. Before this point, I don’t think I had consumed a single cup of tea in my entire life (late bloomer, I suppose), so the first time I was offered tea I politely declined (major faux pas!). Miraculously, I was somehow invited back a second time and decided to give it a shot. I soon found myself falling in love with the social ritual…and eventually, the taste, relaxation, and comfort that tea provided.

After realizing how balanced, healthy, and energized tea made me feel, it became a staple in my diet. I experimented with hundreds of different tea blends over the years and a day didn’t go by when I didn’t make a cup of some sort. I started drinking multiple cups a day and sampled oodles of teas from detoxifying herbal teas to energizing green and black varieties. Yup, I was hooked. The Liddon clan converted me into a full fledged tea drinker!

But there was just one problem – many of the tea blends that I bought from the store were lacking flavour, bitter, or simply disappointing, and I accumulated boxes of teas that would go unused. My unused stash became a bit of a problem, like the dirty secret in the back of my pantry. In the back of my mind, I thought it would be fun to create my own line of specialty teas that I could confidently stand behind. I’m thrilled to say that day has finally arrived.

The Oh She Glows Tea Shoppe represents celebrating a balanced, healthy lifestyle and taking time to sit back and enjoy the finer things in life – both goals that I strive for in my daily life. I’ve personally selected only the best-tasting, high-quality loose leaf tea blends that I drink on a day to day basis – nothing else. In our tea shoppe, you’ll find energizing morning blends, after dinner dessert teas, teas for wellness, and teas that you simply cannot imagine living without. I hope they become a staple in your diet like they have in ours.

A very special thanks to our friend and talented food photographer, Jeff Coulson, for shooting all of the photography. Have you ever seen tea look this good?!

OMG, this pudding cake. Pumpkin + chocolate + brewed coffee + pumpkin pie spices + almond milk = heaven in a dish! Heaven in a gluten-free, vegan dish, that is.
