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 Fixin’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 bareenglish.com, 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!
