Talk about a royal honour!

On Saturday, July 1st, 2017 (AKA Canada Day!) Our Tea Sommelier/CEO had a rare opportunity to meet with Prince Charles during his visit midst his three-day royal tour as part of Canada 150 festivities.

“It still doesn’t feel quite real” shared Sheena Brady. “Having an in depth conversation with His Royal Highness about female entrepreneurship and tea, two things I am very passionate about was a moment that was truly an honour, and one that I am very proud of”

Sheena met with Prince Charles at Shopify, where he spoke with three established Canadian businesses lead by women, Tease Tea being one of them.

“I tried to get him excited about matcha tea, though it was a slightly tough sell” joked Sheena. “Prince Charles is incredibly engaging to speak with, and very friendly, however his taste in tea is reserved for the more traditional black teas. Our limited edition Maple Sugar Shack, celebrating Canada's 150 was a big hit!"

Maple Sugar Shack is a blend featuring maple, safflower & rose creating a creamy brew worthy of celebration! Excellent hot or iced. 🇨🇦
