Enter the World of Robyn’s Cookies & Co.

The Global standard in iconic cookies, luxury wellness teas, and hand-poured, soy-based candles.

From what started as a hand-blended Tea Company, Sahara Tea’s origins have evolved naturally into a complete wellness brand today. Since 2014, Yvonne Robertson has focused on building a brand based exclusively on natural ingredients with an emphasis on wellness, healthy living, and enjoying moments with those you love.

From the start her mission has been to promote health and wellness choices through premium self-care products, while remaining committed to maintaining the essence of a neighbourhood company. When the opportunity to champion a local, artisanal bakery became available, Yvonne did not hesitate to enhance the Sahara family.

Made with all-natural premium ingredients and no preservatives, soft on the inside, and crisp on the outside, Robyn’s Cookies are the perfect and natural complement to the tea portfolio.

Wellness Made Beautiful, & Delicious

Originally, Yvonne entered the tea market as an avid consumer who loved a hot cup of tea and a homemade cookie as part of her Irish family’s daily ritual. When the opportunity arose for her to take on the task of resuscitating a local tea business, she jumped at the opportunity.

From that point on, Sahara & Co.’s mission has been to promote health and wellness choices through premium self-care products while remaining committed to maintaining the true essence of a neighbourhood, wellness tea company. Under the Robyn’s Cookies & Co. umbrella, Yvonne has now expanded to be able to offer both teas and all-natural cookies and baked goods.

Yvonne was honoured to receive an invitation to present Sahara Tea's Grey's Gift, Earl Grey tea blend in London during Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee. An event sponsored by Rolls Royce brought Sahara & Co. to the attention of the Jubilee organizers. The company flew to London and presented a commemorative Tea Collection gift set made especially for The Queen. The event was an overwhelming success and exemplifies the extent to which these blends and this brand are travelling the world.

From what began as a hand-blended Wellness Tea company, Robyn’s Cookies & Company has evolved into a luxury brand providing beautiful handmade cookies, GF + Vegan frozen delicacies, hand-poured candles, and specialty teas.

Meet Yvonne

Robertson and her family have local roots in midtown Toronto, and with over 25 years of experience as a small business owner, she is an active member of the community, partnering with several non-profits and for-profit organizations.

In a rapidly growing city like Toronto, Robertson believes maintaining a sense of "locality" must be a priority, where children are raised with a sense of community and can walk to school with friends while feeling a sense of belonging. Robertson credits the success of her brand to their unique sales approach and personal touch. “We offer businesses stunning corporate gifts, and holiday baskets at wholesale prices. We can help local families with custom candles, cookies, and teas for the holidays and encourage senior and student discounts in-store. Supporting others has led to them, in turn, supporting us." Led by Yvonne's commitment to community and support for fundraisers and charities Robyn’s Cookies & Co. takes pride in local responsibility. Her primary areas of support include the Hospital for Sick Kids, the Toronto Police Services Cops, Kids program, and Sunnybrook Hospital's the Women and Babies wing. Her commitment to local programs will continue to help those in need in our community.
