CELEBRATION EGGNOG

Published on Dec 19, 2016

Tea’s the season at Sloane, and we’re in the spirit to slow the pace and embrace the times. Whether it be hosting an elaborate holiday dinner, getting together with friends or simply getting cozy by the fire, there is no better way to savour a moment than curled up with cup of holiday cheer. This time, we chose eggnog.

COCOA CHAI CHAI INFUSED HOT CHOCOLATE

Published on Nov 25, 2016

The leaves are falling, the holidays are looming, and the most wonderful time of the year can almost be the most stressful. If you’re anything like us, sometimes you need a reminder to slow down and smell the cocoa. While tea may be our obvious drink of choice, we can’t deny the sweet satisfaction that accompanies that first sip of warm cocoa.  We’ve decided to give this cold weather classic a Sloane spin, and what better way to do this than with a tea infusion! The perfect pairing: Our Cocoa Chai Chai, a rich masala based tea featuring whole green cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and clove, topped with sumptuous Brazilian cocoa nibs. The result: A sweet and spicy treat we’re sure you’ll make over and over again.

Autumn…One of our absolute favourite seasons. Maybe it’s the way nature works its magic with the changing of the leaves, the cool, crisp air, or maybe it’s the comfort a pie brings when wrapped in buttery flaky pie dough. No matter what it is, it’s a time for comfort and festive celebration with our loved ones.

SIMPLE TEA INFUSED PANCAKES

Published on Dec 31, 2014

There’s nothing quite like a Canadian winter morning spent in pyjamas with a hot cup of tea and a stack of pancakes dripping with maple syrup. Cosy and warming it’s a classic combination that can’t be beat, that is, unless you make our tea-infused pancakes!
