ELCTRK TEA is an online tearoom founded out of Toronto, Ontario. Our teas offer a fresh, bold, and savoury "twist" on Indian teas but still incorporates all of the bountiful nutrients and health benefits of the traditional Indian blends.
We have explored various therapeutic herbs and spices grown in India and paired them with tea leaves hand picked from India’s historic and lush plantations creating rich and aromatic healing teas. They are thoughtfully blended to support ones needs, health, stress levels, and energy for long term vitality.
Our mission is to take traditional Indian practices and fuse them into exotic premium teas to pleasure, meditate stress, support immunity and to boost the body’s natural resistance to disease. nourish the body, balance the mind.
My unknown obsession with tea started when realizing how impactful ginger is for the body. From weight loss, relief with nausea, inflammation, digestion I was an addict slicing it up raw and adding it to hot water everyday.
In my late twenties I said screw it, I needed inspiration, I needed an adventure, I wanted to explore and learn about my roots. So I left it all behind and went on a spontaneous 3 month trip backpacking South East Asia, with India my motherland being the first stop. I ended up spending about a month travelling all over India starting with the Taj Mahal. Then cruised down the Ganges in Varanasi, swam in the palmy beaches of Goa, visited Chennai where my mom and dad grew up, and drove through the breathtaking tea plantations of Kerala. Tea was everywhere. Every shop, every train, even sitting in the auto rickshaw someone was always there sticking their head in trying to sell you “Chai”.
This trip inspired me. It brought something out of me that i've never felt before. I was raised in a predominantly caucasian neighbourhood, so growing up I was a visible minority and I tended to be shy of my ethnic background. But for once I felt honoured to be Indian and with that I wanted to bring appreciation to Indian flavours and aromas through tea. I then realized the crazy amount of health benefits as well as the distinctive tastes of India’s abundant tea leaves, herbs and spices have to offer. This sparked my passion to study and research the art of tea blending. This was the beginning of Elctrk Tea. estd 2018.
