Domo is an independent, Canadian-owned and operated business based in Vancouver. We love tea: its story, its origins, what it represents and what it can do for us. Our goal is to reinvent tea, fusing its traditional qualities with fresh ideas and flavours.
At Domo we blend the old with new to create a unique tea experience. The purists might say tea should be unadulterated, which is fine if that’s your thing.... we just think you can have a little fun without being too academic about it. No, you probably won't be having a traditional Japanese tea ceremony with our tea, but unless you have a ceremonial kimono, a four-foot tatami mat and an awful lot of time on your hands, that might work out in your favour. You also won't need a hand-thrown clay bowl, a bamboo ladle, a silk cloth, a tea whisk or a brocaded kobukusa. Instead, you'll enjoy authentic, organic green, rooibos, and chai teas enhanced with all-natural flavours, in the same time it takes to make a cup of hot chocolate.
As a company, Domo is all about balance. Hard work, persistence and diligence are important factors in starting and growing a business - but at the same time, we don't take every little thing too seriously. That's why we always have company meetings in a restaurant or bar. For us, growing the company isn't really work, it's a social experience with business objectives attached. We're excited about what we're doing and genuinely care about the outcome and our customers. Heart and soul, common sense and a willingness to approach things with openness and positivity is what drives our decision-making process.
We think this is a good approach for life, as well as for tea. We aren't interested in producing expensive, pretentious products that rely on complicated equipment and a process nobody has time for. Tea can be easy and convenient while still adding a touch of exotic flair to your kitchen.
All of our Matcha is grown and produced in Nishio city in Aichi prefecture. Nishio has been known the world over as the cradle of the finest Matcha for more than 800 years.
Utilizing the same concept as with Matcha, our pure Black Tea Powder is a carefully ground powder using 100% Indian black tea leaves. A half-and-half combination of both Darjeeling and Assam leaves, our Black Tea Powder brings the quality and versatility of Matcha to this classic tea flavor.
Similarly, our pure Rooibos Powder is a carefully ground powder using 100% South African Rooibos red tea leaves. Rich in antioxidants, Rooibos tea is also naturally very low in caffeine, containing almost none at all. This makes our pure Rooibos Tea Powder an excellent alternative for those looking for authentic tea flavor without caffeine.
Created with the cafe world in mind, our Black Tea and Rooibos Tea Powders are perfect for making both lattes and smoothies. With no added sugars, you can make your drinks pure for that natural tea flavor, or adjust as desired with your own favorite sweetener. Both teas are excellent for use in cookies, cakes, ice cream - whatever your heart desires!
