Raven and Hummingbird Tea Company is a Coast Salish owned & operated indigenous tea company. Senaqwila Wyss & T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss are a daughter & mother partnership who have teamed up to create a business based on traditional local and seasonal plant foods and medicines. Our teas are all handcrafted and we endeavour to bring a sense of wellness and comfort to the teas we blend. We are a family business from the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation).
We source 90% of our herbs through wildcrafting throughout our travels, growing them in the local community garden, and trading with local pickers. The other 10% of our stock comes from local herbal distributors who supply local businesses. Our family started the penemay (garden) in Xwemeltchsn (capilano reserve) in 2008. Our products range from loose leaf teas, salves, vegetable glycerin (alcohol-free) tinctures, and other wellness products with traditional indigenous plant knowledge. We feel pride in intergenerational healing as part of our process in working with the land and with medicines.
