The Denman Island Tea Company

About a four hour drive plus a ferry ride away from Vancouver, Canada is where you will find the amazing tea shop of Denman Island Tea Company. I was introduced to this company back in 2017 when they were known as The Tea Guy. Loved the depth of detail he gave on his teas and even now I appreciate his knowledge that can be ascertained in each cup I make. Even if you can’t visit their shop I highly suggest you give their tea a try.


Location(s) Headquarters : Courtenay, BC, Canada

Company Focus: Blending and sourcing premium organic teas and tisanes. 

Most popular company tea(s)?  

  • Our most popular teas are our London Fog Latte blend and our Cream Of Earl Grey.  

Does the company name have a meaning?

  • We changed the name from Teaguy Teas to The Denman Is Tea Co when we moved the company to the Island in 2017.  The intention was to start a tea farm and grow some of our own black, green and oolong teas.  With the planting of 500 camellia sinensis plants, we decided to change the name of the company to the Denman Island Tea Company. In the very near future, you will be able to try our Denman Island grown teas. 

Do you participate in any charities?  

What is your and/or your co-workers’ favorite tea?  

What are your thoughts on transparency in the tea industry?

  • I am all for providing the customer the most up to date and current info about the tea they are buying.  After being in the the upper end of specialty tea for 22 years, we have established alliances with some of the cleanest and most reputable organic gardens around the world.  I have visited many of them, and can confirm that they are indeed as good as we say they are.  We rarely sell any tea that is not certified organic or has passed the EU certification for pesticide residues. 

What role does tea play in our lives?  

  • Tea has been part of the Canadian culture ever since the British arrived in the 16th century. Being from the East Coast, tea is served with almost every meal so it has been ingrained into my lifestyle since I was a child.

TeaTiff Picks: Bourbon Vanilla Rooibos. I can’t believe I forgot about this rooibos. The first time I tried it I thought the fact that I could taste the presence of the bourbon was fascinating. The more sessions I had the more I discovered. But I’ll leave it a mystery because I want you to experience it too.

One thought on “The Denman Island Tea Company

  1. I have been disappointed in my tea for a long time,not enjoyable. But 2 days ago I was walking past the new Denman Island Tea company shop in Courtenay and I decided to give it a try. (Can’t believe I haven’t heard of them before now). I have to confess that I am now in heaven with my ritual and favorite Earl Grey Cream. I had 4 cups yesterday. Thank you so much!
    I must also share with you the real life changer (I’m not exaggerating). And that’s Bulletproof coffee. The info and recipes are all over online. But simply, you put in the blender ,and fiercely blend, your cup of favorite coffee and add 2 tbsp of organic grass fed butter ( important as grass fed makes a different fat) and 1 tbsp of MCT oil ( a pure liquid clear coconut oil with only the mid chain triglycerides – fatty acids we really need.). Get oil with the shorter chain – capric acid and caprillic acid. The longer chain Lauric acid you can get in your regular cheaper coconut oil. The one I bought is the Garden of Life Dr formulated organic MCT oil. There are many benefits from this oil but the ones I noticed immediately are : clearer mind/thinking and alertness. A large increase in energy and stamina. A feeling of fullness and no hunger after drinking coffee (no need to eat until 1 pm even when doing physical labor And a really exciting thing is no cravings! Not for salt ,sugar,bread etc. just a quiet satisfied body! I usually take honey in my hot lemon water and sugar in my coffee but not doing that now. Have been wanting to do a yeast detox and can now. After a lifetime in healthcare and education, this is my best tip ever. Results are immediate.
    I just have one cup of coffee a day and it’s my earl grey tea the rest of the day. And now I have transformed from a somewhat miserable person to a pretty happy one. I am 72 years old and wasn’t taking kindly to losing energy and thinking skills etc.,you can understand that.
    Blessings to all from Hana (my new name as of yesterday).
