Tea Horse was founded by Denise Atkinson and Marc H. Bohémier and is a Certified Aboriginal Business with the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business. Our focus is on health and wellness and the restorative properties contained in tea, herbal infusions and wild craft foods like wild rice, North America’s original “superfood”. Since our inception, we have been engaging with Indigenous Elders and harvesters of traditional plants for guidance on how to proceed with creating non-timber forest resource initiatives that will support and empower Indigenous Peoples and communities. At present, we source our tea and herbal infusions from Canadian tea experts who travel to the tea growing regions of the world and buy directly from the farmer or small producer. In October 2019, we attended the World Indigenous Business Forum in Vancouver, BC, where we formed partnerships that will allow us to transition to direct-sourcing from Indigenous Tea Peoples in Taiwan, Japan, Nepal, Australia and New Zealand. Our authentic, traditionally harvested wild rice is direct sourced from Indigenous harvesters from the pristine lakes of Northwestern Ontario and processed using minimal technology to ensure quality, nutrition, and flavour. Purchasing non-cultivated, natural wild rice supports Indigenous harvesters, preserves Indigenous food sovereignty and the eco-system in which it grows.
