The essence of the brand

OUR STORY

It all began in 1992 when Johanne Dion, the company’s founder, was on a trip to London. As she was sitting on the patio of a teahouse, she heard Big Ben chime four times. Four O’Clock was born! Driven by a desire to share unique and refined blends with Canadians, Johanne returned to Trans-Herbe, Four O’Clock’s headquarter, where she and her team began developing teas and herbal teas.

The Trans-Herbe team is still based in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, in the Greater Montreal area, where they dream up and taste the herb and spice blends that are the essence of Four O’Clock teas and herbal teas.

Four O’Clock is fuelled by a mother-daughter passion for tea, guaranteeing that the company will be around for many years to come. In 2015, Karine, Johanne’s daughter, took over the management of the company.

VALUES & COMMITMENTS

One of Four O’Clock’s core values is respect—respect for the planet and for individual communities. As a brand, we are committed to respecting the communities that grow its teas, herbs and spices. Four O’Clock was a pioneer in Canada when it launched its first Fairtrade tea, the Earl Grey, in 2003. We remain as committed as ever to Fairtrade, and today we offer a wide range of Fairtrade teas that are also Organic and GMO free.

Four O'Clock is committed to the environmental movement so it is important that we select products that respect our bodies as well as the environment. Did you know that our teabags have no staples and are 100% compostable, and that our boxes are made from recycled cardboard and are also recyclable?

Do you follow a particular diet? Our products are all naturally gluten-free and Kosher. Therefore, they can be enjoyed by many people with dietary restrictions.
