Coca tea bags/leaves or candy - where in t.o?

I'm heading to the Himalayas soon and will be facing some high elevation that I'm not quite use to. When I was in Peru for the Inca Trail, I found that chewing on Coca candy and drinking Coca tea really helped... or at least gave me the placebo effect. Does anyone know where in Toronto or even Ontario can I get this stuff?

Thanks!

I believe it's a grey area. Something customs might let pass if you try to bring in tea bags, but something that they can confiscate because it's technically illegal.

I would definitely not recommend flying anywhere with coca products.
