Toronto Tea Festival

On Saturday, February 2 (aka Groundhog Day – yay early spring!), I had the pleasure of attending the Toronto Tea Festival. And, in a nutshell, it was awesome!

I bought way too much tea (as per usual), and learned some new interesting things about tea! I listened to two talks: one on mixology (with Dan Johanis from Herbal Infusions Tea Co and Trevor Burnett from Tipicular Fixinโ€™s) and one on cooking with tea (with Raelene Gannon from Tea and all its Splendour). I learned some new recipes in each, and look forward to reviewing them once I try them for myself!

I picked up some lip balm infused with green tea from Bare English & Co. I bought the Vanilla Coconut flavour and it’s wonderful! Check out the company at, they ship from here as well.

Lip balms!

I also discovered T by Daniel, where I purchased the flavoured black tea Trina’s Tiramisu. And boy is it amazing. Usually I’m not a fan of black flavoured teas since I never get much of the additional flavour in the blends. But I sure did from this one! I will definitely need to pick up more of this delicious blend once I finish it.

Stay tuned for more tea reviews from the Tea Festival!
