Tearrific is all about making great tea accessible to everyone! We go to events in our little green trailer, which means you can still get a great cup of tea (including our Lavender London Fog!) in a parking lot, field, or park. We hand-blend many of our teas, so they are mixed in very small batches to ensure consistency and quality every time. It also means that they are unique! They make great personalized wedding gifts and favours!
What inspired you to start your business?
I have always wanted to have my own business. Part of what inspired me to start Tearrific was that I wanted something different for my own wedding favours, and I couldn’t find anything so personal as the favours that we now create. I wanted to make wedding favours that could be totally customized – even down to the ingredients in the tea. So that is what we do!
What’s your favorite part about working in the wedding industry?
I love seeing how excited brides and grooms are about our favours. They have used them as gifts for wedding guests, to give out at bridal showers, and to “pop the question” to their bridesmaids. Weddings are such a happy time and I love being a part of someone else’s special day.
Share a piece of advice with our brides:
For my clients and everyone else, I would want them to know that your wedding day should be the most fun day you’ve ever had! Things may go wrong but no on will notice or care – including you. You’ll be having way too much fun surrounded by your friends and family. This was absolutely true for me, and I think people sometimes put a lot of pressure on themselves to create a really memorable, perfect day. But life isn’t perfect, so as long as you and your partner are happy and having a great time, that is truly all that matters.
Do you have any fun news coming up that you’d like to share?
Our teas are now being served and sold at Greater Goods in Bridgeland! You can have a cup of our hand-blended tea while you shop tons of great local goods. This is a huge step and we are so excited to be a part of this new venture!
What’s a wedding trend that you’re totally in love with right now?
I love mason jars so I’ll always love the mason jar trend. I also really like how much personality people are adding to their weddings these days – DIY decorations, signature cocktails, personalized favours (hint hint ;))…I think it is so great to be able to ‘see’ the couple in the event that they plan. I’m a believer in the big day reflecting the couple as much as possible ad so I love seeing that.
