As Natural As It Gets
Fresh Tea & Spices
The taste of tea in Sri Lanka is solely the taste of the tea leaves within it. Additional additives are quite unheard of. With so many blends of tea today we feel that the mere simplicity of tea is fading. Our prime focus is to bring you pure tea and fresh spices and hand you the option of adding your own choices of spices into your tea. Sri Lanka also formerly known as Ceylon, is one of the world’s renown destination for tea lovers! In this tiny island, tea is as simple as it is in the plantations. With Alakaban’s strong roots in Sri Lanka, we wish to bring you the feel of fresh tea, the smell of its origin and a taste of high quality in every sip.
A Sri Lankan Soul
In Sri Lanka, Tea-time is about Together-time. It is the time when families exchange stories over their tea, when labourers gather around after a tiring stretch of work and tease each other over their tea. It is also the time when dreamers discuss their creative ideas and plans over their tea. Strangely enough, during tea-time there is no time for other entertainment, it is just good company and good tea. We intend to bring you that soul of tea. A lot of the imagery you see on our website is credited to a good friend of ours who is in Sri Lanka, Aamina Nizar. You can find more of her work at aaminanizar.com.

What Makes Alakaban Tea So Good?
We are a small team of people situated in Canada and Sri Lanka. We operate mainly out of Vancouver, BC, Canada but we have people on the ground in Sri Lanka coordinating with tea growers and business owners to keep our products up to a high standard. When we're not working we are out exploring and trying new types of foods and drinks hoping to combine that into the Alakaban experience.
Our tea is grown in one of the worlds greatest tea destinations: Sri Lanka. Ceylon Tea is steeped in age old tradition that brings you flavours and fragrances right from the tea estates of Sri Lanka. We take great pleasure in personally verifying the tea and bringing you tea of the highest quality.
Tea in Sri Lanka is never complex, it's pure, it's simple and its Alakaban's Ceylon Tea. We love the idea of tea time where you would bring up an old joke and snack on tea biscuits. Alakaban Tea's purpose is to make you experience tea like we do. We bring you a little nature-love, a few simple traditions and all that is left for you to do is simply blend it your way.
Along our way of spreading the joy of tea time we realized this made a whole line of hand crafters, entrepreneurs, nature lovers, tea pickers and tea lovers absolutely over joyed. This is when we were determined to bring you Ceylon Tea with the entire spirit of Sri Lanka.
In today's world, kicking back and relaxing is very important and sometimes we can get so caught up in what we're doing to realize that or we are just unable to make time for it. With every Alakaban box we hope to bring those little moments of serenity to your day, regardless how long or short they may be. Brewing a nice cup of tea, exactly the way you want it can be key to hitting that max relaxed state. We provide all the essentials in order to create that perfect cup of tea every time. We got you covered.
All of our Tea and Spices are fresh and predominantly from Sri Lanka. We do, from time to time, like to incorporate a little taste of Canada into our boxes by providing fresh local ingredients. All of our packaging is very close to being all natural and we do our best to minimize waste to keep Alakaban environmentally friendly.
