“Leaves and Tips” is a cart set up in Hazeldean Mall in the Kanata area, and is one of VERY few sources of tea in the West End. Teas on offer are black, green and herbal teas and oolongs. Loose leaf teas come from India, Nepal, China, Sri Lanka, and herbal teas come from Egypt, South Africa, Brazil, and the USA. Teas sold here are organic and fair trade, and the owner is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She is keen for feedback and amenable to requests and special orders. The only way “Leaves and Tips” could be improved would be to have a shop with the space and ability to relax and sample – maybe this will happen with some local support of this very new business.
I have recently purchased (and enjoyed!) Ancient Forest black tea, Fairytale tea, and a few tea accessories. Well worth checking out!
