One the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… a box of delicious Silk Road Tea!

This December, Threshold Housing Society has partnered with Silk Road Tea to create some delicious, feel-good teas – and they’ll warm your heart, too.

With all of the proceeds going towards Threshold, these gift boxes not only make the perfect present for the holiday season, but they also help provide at-risk youth with safe homes this Christmas.

The 12 Silk Road tea flavours include: Express Chai, Sour Cherry, Jade Spring, Angel Water, Mango Shade, Quench, Ceylon, Jasmine Oasis, Winter Warrior, Philosopher’s Brew, English Breakfast, and Imperial Earl Grey.

Gift boxes are $20 each and all proceeds go to Threshold Housing to help them be able to continue providing safe housing, support services, and community to at risk youth. 

You can purchase a 12 days of tea gift box at any of the 7 Country Grocer locations on Vancouver Island; you can also order online. Delivery is free if you online order a minimum of 5!

“We are very happy to team up with the Threshold Housing Society as a place to purchase their holiday tea boxes,” says Andrew Cavin, Director of Country Grocer. 

“The Threshold Housing Society does amazing work with the youth of our community and providing them with a safe place to live. The work that they do in our community is very crucial for at risk youth and we are privileged to be a part of it.”

Threshold Housing Society works to prevent adult homelessness by providing safe housing, support services, and community to at-risk youth, aged 15-24 years old. Threshold serves at-risk youth experiencing homelessness, aging out of care, or fleeing violence in the home. Young adults who need a place to call home and people who believe in them.
