Banff Tea Co infuses the Bow Valley with over 150 different teas from around the world, as well as a selection of eclectic and funky teapots.
Opened in June 2007, the store itself was designed to be a place of discovery, creativitea, warmth and peace. The unique design (Harry Potter meets Zen) is only part of the experience Susanne and her staff hope to create.
Smelling is believing! Each tea is showcased in its own 'sniffer tin', allowing you to get a whiff of anything before you buy. The rule of thumb is, if you like the smell, you'll like the taste. It's a great way to shop.
We love tea not only for the wide variety of tastes, but also because it can be enjoyed without taking a toll on the earth. You can compost the tea leaves, sending them back to the land, not the landfill. To that end, Banff Tea Co. not only sends tea leaves back to the earth, but 25% of their profits go back to the grass roots chariteas and farmers in the (mostly) third world countries where the tea comes from.
Pop into Banff Tea Co. and say hi. Rest assured, you'll walk out with something you didn't expect to find.
