About Shanti Tea

Shanti Tea is a Toronto-based Canadian tea company, founded in 2009, with a focus on sustainability. Shanti Tea sells only loose tea, and only sells it online.

All of Shanti's teas are certified organic by EcoCert Canada.

During the first two years of Shanti Tea, many of their teas were also fair trade certified, but the company stopped using this certification process for a variety of reasons that they explain on their website.

Shanti Tea also sells teas exclusively in reusable tins, and/or biodegradable/compostable bags, and uses exclusively recyclable shipping materials. Shanti also focuses on selling teas that are biodynamically grown, a system for agriculture that focuses on growing tea (or any crops being grown) as part of an ecosystem, and focuses on promoting the health of the ecosystem as a whole. Shanti does not participate in the biodynamic certification process, but some of the tea estates Shanti purchases from are certified biodynamic by Demeter (Demeter Biodynamic Trade Association / Demeter International).

I believe it is actually a CTC although it is a very good tasting tea, warm and pleasant and very good without milk. Similar to smooth premium Ceylon in taste

This was my first rose petal tea, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

The dried flower petals had a nice perfume scent, which I enjoyed because I'm really big on flowery teas. I can imagine that the floral scent wouldn't be for everyone.

The taste was smooth, mild, and pleasant. Nothing bitter about it.

I used to drink tons of coffee, the by product of working in a coffee shop as a teenager. I got a bit sick of it, but still love the smell and taste of it on occasion.

The aroma is delightful, a mellow blend of tea mixed with rich chocolate and coffee and a sweet yet slightly tangy kick of strawberry. The smell rem...

I usually don't care for passionfruit - but I had a Shanti Iced Passionfruit Black tea - and man, was it good. Granted, it was the middle or summer - so this was a fruity, refreshing sip.
I don't think this tea is discontinued - as I just had it.

This is a preliminary rating based on the smell alone - I just got a sample of this loose-leaf tea and can't wait to brew some up. I bet it'd be great in the winter as you can smell a sweet maple scent and as Sylvia mentioned a faint whisper of smoky wood. It looks appealing visually as well. I will update this revi...
