Enjoying a cup of tea together is an essential part of Denise and Danny's daily routine.
"It's an opportunity for us to connect, quiet the noise around us and be fully present with each other."
Together, they founded their own tea company in 2017 - teafrog.
teafrog teas are blended in inspiration, in small batches and packaged by hand in beautiful Collingwood, Ontario.
"Our hope is that our tea creations inspire others to remember to drink in the moment."
- Danny and Denise

It is impossible to know the taste of tea without first drinking it.
Studying tea will not help.
Meditating on tea will not help.
Listening to others talk about tea will not help.
Reading sutras about tea will not help.
Smelling the aroma of tea will not help.
Sitting blissfully in samahdi around tea will not help.
Seeking tea in exotic countries will not help.
Having profound insights about tea will not help.
Opening the heart in deep life-changing ways will not help.
Going inside a tea shop will not help.
All of these things are mere confusion and delaying tactics.
To know the taste of tea you must drink it. There is no other way.
As an agricultural product, the quality of finished tea is dependent on the conditions in which it was grown.
