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?!

Yum! I love a hot cup of tea on a cold day. Can’t wait to try it!

Karen November 2, 2014

What a great idea!

kristina November 2, 2014

oh what lovely teas……!

Trish November 2, 2014

The tea shoppe sounds great Angela, hope you can ship to Australia!
I grew up with an English grandfather and he fed me milky tea from a teaspoon, as soon as I was old enough to sit up straight. To this day, I still drink tea with lots of milk, just like my grandfather did.

Aliza November 2, 2014

This sounds like a wonderful new step! I hope to try some teas soon!

Melissa McKinlay November 2, 2014

All your teas look wonderful!! I love loose leaf tea and usually drink Davids Tea…I try to buy their organic kind! But sometimes I wonder how organic their products are…Do you know anything about them??? I’m very excited to give your teas a try

Alyssa November 2, 2014

I feel we are kindred spirits. Tea is my all time favorite! Can’t wait to try the orange Creamsicle!

Laura November 2, 2014

The shop looks great! Congratulations!

Emen November 2, 2014

I love tea!!! These look amazing, probably even better with some yummy baked goods :)

Lou November 2, 2014

What an exciting adventure! I’ve just recently gotten into tea. There’s a TeaVana near my house but after looking at some of the ingredients, I was not happy to find artificial flavors in the tea! I’m so excited about your new tea line!

Annamarie Behring November 2, 2014

Congrats on your new adventure!
Thank you for all the wonderful recipes.

Kristine November 2, 2014

I ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ tea…….and your blog!!!

Elaine November 2, 2014

I love the idea! I will be ordering from you!

Carrie November 2, 2014

These look delish. As a non-coffee drinker, I really appreciate a good tea, especially as the weather cools down.

Nisha November 2, 2014

Nice blog. I found your book at my local library and am very impressed with your vegan cooking!

Dana Thielmann November 2, 2014

So excited for you Angela. The team looks mazing – can wait to try it out!

Anne November 2, 2014

These are so pretty! And look great- the only thing I noticed was that a few had “natural essences.” I am constantly scanning out certain herbs and extracts while pregnant and don’t purchase items that are not explicit about ingredients. That is my only critical comment- everything else looks very well done!

Angela (Oh She Glows) November 5, 2014

Thank you for your feedback Anne!

Kristin November 2, 2014

Black currant + rooibos = yum!

Kendal B November 2, 2014

As the weather becomes colder I would love to try this flavourful tea! Can’t wait to order some…

Stacey November 2, 2014

This is so exciting! So many great things are happening for you! Your followers absolutely love reaping the bennies!

Missa Lynn November 2, 2014

My husband and I are transitioning into a vegan lifestyle, and your cookbook and blog have both quickly become favorites! I am trying to switch from coffee to tea, and would love to try some of yours! Thanks for the giveaway!

Raquel November 2, 2014

This is awesome! I adore loose leaf tea and also share the dream of having my own tea shop one day. Can’t wait to try your blends. Congrats!

Kimberley November 2, 2014

Angela,

I can’t express how thankful I am for your blog. I am one of those people who likes to cook something new every week or two. It has been difficult this past year starting from ground zero when my husband and I watched a life changing documentry on the animal industry. After that our diets changed but the one animal product that is still lingering for us is cheese… I have read numerous times that cheese is often the last thing to go for many people.

Over this past year I have learned to convert some of our favorite recipes to vegetarian(because of the cheese) and some to completly vegan and was elated when I stumbled upon your blog by chance when I googled maple butter and was able to start rebuilding the variety of food in our diet. I just want to say thank you!

By the way your teas look really good. I really like the sound of the orange creamsicle.

elizabeth November 2, 2014

How exciting !

Margarita November 2, 2014

I am SO excited you are offering tea! So many health benefits! I love the names as well!!
