Toronto Tea Festival – February 1 & 2

28 Jan

Tea is the new coffee. No, tea is the new smoothie!

Tea drinkers have recently become spoiled for choice in the city. This weekend, they even have their own festival. The Toronto Tea Festival, in its second year, showcases tea, tea ware and experts performing traditional ceremonies and giving talks. Last year, over 1200 people turned up to get their Puerh on, which is why they’ve expanded the event to two days.

We love tea here at YYZ. We can’t wait to see the Japanese tea ceremony and learn about the finer points of “Tea in Contemporary Art.” If you’re checking this out, make sure you come and find us and tell us your favourite thing about the event!
