Really depends on what grocery store. I find that Shoppers generally has the worst selection of tea, followed by Superstore with second-worse. Save-on-Foods (now Pricesmart) has a pretty good selection, as does Thrifty’s and IGA.

The best are Donald’s Market and Planet Organic, but I believe these are in Vancouver only.

Edit: There IS a Planet Organic in Port Credit.

Safeway and Sobeys have a bit of selection I think, to be honest I don’t really look though… sorry

Whole Foods, even their in house brand ones are pretty good. Not sure what differences there might be between US and Canada stores but the one by me has at least a dozen different brands in a decent selection and it’s not even that large of a WF.

Amanda’s right on whole foods here in Canada. Loblaws has minor things that aren’t your average crap. Health food stores tend to have non typical
Brands as well, hell even shoppers has some.

Tetley, Celestial Seasonings, and Twinings are in most grocery stores. Red Rose of course as well, but I don’t like that one as much.

They sell TAZO in walmart here (Ontario). They may carry them at Safeway as well seeing as how Safeway has starbucks and starbucks serves TAZO.

I found London Drugs has an interesting selection at times – the usual Stash, Lipton, Tetley, Celestial Seasonings, Twinnings. But also I’ve seen some pricey stuff like Mighty leaf, Tazo and Zhena’s (had some neat coconut, chocolate type teas), and Two Hills Matcha. They also got some organic teas.

Also, check out any asian grocery stores – I’ve gotten lots of really good loose leaf genmaichas, rose black teas, oolongs and jasmine teas. They’ll often sell a range of cheap quality to expensive.

Winners can have some interesting tea selections if you have one near you. Chapters/Coles also carry some tea now, they have Harneys, among others.
