Since we’ve had our 6th anniversary, most of you already know that Chari-Teas was started to support childrens’ charities (hence the name) and to make high-quality tea (which provides many, many health benefits) available to everyone who shops in our store.
Our specialty is tea, all of the best quality – green, white, black,pu-erh, oolong, decaffeinated, rooibos, herbal, honeybush, fruit, and a good selection of professionally blended medicinal teas. No artificial flavouring here!! Also, we have an amazing array of teapots, mugs, tea accessories, April Cornell linens, gifts, Monsoon Coast spices, cards, etc., all in a price range that accommodates everyone.
Thank you to our customers, who have supported us and our charitable work (which is set out in detail on the bulletin board by the donation teapot in the store and in the Feb 2016 blog on this website). All the good work that’s been done, couldn’t have been done without YOU.
We can mail tea to anyone who wants to order it ‘on line’ – just send us an email or call.
Drop in between 9:30 and 5:30 Monday through Saturday at 211Craig St. (between the spa and the jewellry store – across from City Hall), we’d be happy to see you – we LOVE our customers!!.
Why do we call ourselves Chari-teas?
To date, we’ve sent more than $14,000$ – mostly to Colombia (a few hundred dollars has gone to China) and over $3,300 has gone to local charities, schools and causes. In addition, many local public schools have used our program to raise funds for their needs. ALL OF THIS IS BECAUSE OF ALL OF YOU.
As many of you know, Yolanda has a Foundation in Colombia that supports AIDs families. A huge thank you goes to Yolanda’s associate Diego, who administers all the work there – out of the goodness of his heart – which enables ALL funds to go directly to those who need help, with the exception of the small cost to actually send the money there. (We have all the receipts if you’d like to see them).
So, come to downtown Duncan, wander the streets, view the totems and pop in to see us across from City Hall at # 101 – 211 Craig Street, or give us a call at (250) 597-0880.
