About Us
The Valley Alchemist hand-blends loose leaf tea in Meaford, Ontario. Founded on the principle that tea is one of civilization’s greatest gifts, we’re proud to be building a tea company which takes our social and environmental responsibilities seriously. The packaging we use is minimal or reusable, and one of the things we love about loose leaf tea is that there are no micro-plastic tea bags headed to the landfill - just rinse your infuser and steep again! If you prefer the convenience of bagged tea, we have 100% compostable and biodegradable infuser bags, which can go straight in your backyard compost or municipal green bin.
Practices
Our teas are sustainably sourced, hand blended and packed in Meaford, ON. We use whole tea leaves and ingredients because they are the *most* delicious, and we make micro-batches of our blends to ensure peak longevity in our customers' pantries. We source our tea leaves through a larger importer based in Toronto. They buy tea leaves, herbs and flowers during peak seasonal crop times, on tea estates known for quality, social equity, and environmental sustainability.

The tea leaves and flower petals are Rainforest Alliance Certified. The Rainforest Alliance, while not necessarily organic, audits organizations for all three pillars of sustainability - social, economic, and environmental.
