It’s Lemon Lily Tea.

Contributed by K. McLaughlin

Something good is happening in Cabbagetown South.  It’s bigger than the cozy retail space, more exciting than the tea café tucked behind it and just as comforting as their commitment to being natural and certified organic: It’s Lemon Lily Tea.

410 Dundas St. E. (a historic building at the corner of Berkeley) is the new home of Lemon Lily Tea, a Toronto-based Tea Company focused on providing a destination for tea lovers to connect and enjoy a great cup of tea.  Founded in 2012, Lemon Lily has been providing certified organic and all natural tea to cafes and restaurants across Canada and decided to open their very own café & tea shop this fall.

“We were inspired by the community to open our doors.” explains Jason Johnston, founder of Lemon Lily. “We wanted to offer a place for people to come and discover what wholesome & delicious tea really is.”

Sourced from Organic Farms & Tea Estates around the world, complimented by locally sourced organic ingredients like maple, peaches and dark chocolate, Lemon Lily handcrafts and blends more than 100 tea varieties from more than 175 base ingredients.  “It was all or nothing for us.  We were either going to provide 100% organic teas and all natural ingredients, or nothing at all” explains Johnston.  “There are too many tea companies using pesticide-grown ingredients and artificial flavours – and people deserve better.”

Such favourites as I Dream of Ginger, Café Caramel Pu-erh and Canadian Maple are available in-shop at 410 Dundas St. E. as well online at
