I love going to tea events since there is always so much to see! I went to the Toronto Coffee and Tea Expo a few years ago, so I decided to go again this year! Most of the events I go to tend to be just tea focused, so it was neat that this had both coffee and tea.
One fact that many people don’t know is that 99% of all tea is machine harvested in Japan. However, every year, there is a select amount of teas that are hand-picked and rolled at the start of spring. Last year, I had a chance to be a part of it!
This is the third year that I’ve been to the Toronto Tea Festival and there is still always new things to learn and familiar faces to see! I love doing a recap of this event because it gives me a chance to reflect.
The Tea Festival at the Royal Botanical Garden’s is one of the newer tea events that has popped up in Ontario, Canada. Since I was snowed in last year and couldn’t attend, I was excited to go this year!
Last week was the Canadian Coffee & Tea show and I wanted to bring everyone along with me! While I was there, I also took part in an iced tea workshop which inspired me to create my own recipe! Let’s go!
Over the weekend, I was able to take part in a Chakabuki here in Wazuka! A chakabuki, in short, is a blind tea tasting game that is played in Japan. I’ve never been to one before, so I thought it would be fun to bring everyone along!
At the start of the year, I mentioned I was going on a trip to Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Well, now I’m in Japan on my internship at Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms! My first few days in Japan have been quiet, so, I wanted to talk about the Tea Tours that the Farm hosts!
The 2018 Toronto Tea Festival was a whirlwind for me! There were many vendors and tea friends for me to meet and see, as well as teas to taste. I contemplated how to recap this event, so I thought that I would take you along with me as if we are going to the various booths together and show you my small tea hull.
Last weekend was the 5th annual Toronto Tea Festival. I was very eager to go because of the speakers and of course tea! I attended both days and I was especially excited for Sunday because of the”Tasting with Tea Sommeliers & Tea Leaders” event.
