Feel like your Earl Grey routine is growing old?
You’re in luck as the Toronto Tea Festival is returning to the city next month.
From February 3 to 4 at the Toronto Reference Library, tea drinkers will be able to discover something new with the hundreds of tea tastings and opportunities to visit with experts from the industry at one of the many complimentary presentations.
The tastings will feature a variety of teas, each uniquely prepared by exhibitors, with the intent of teaching tasters the difference in tea flavours based on origin, processing technique, and preparation style.
There will be, of course, plenty of opportunities to shop, as there will be teas, teawares, and related products for sale.
Those who are serious about their tea can get a head-start on the festival and attend the VIP opening night on Friday, February 2, where they can enjoy a special tea talk and tasting with renowned explorer, author, and photographer Jeff Fuchs, a film screening of ‘The Tea Explorer’, and tea Q&A.
If you plan on attending the festival, don’t forget to participate in the silent auction and enter the raffle, where you’ll have the chance to win some incredible tea-related prizes.
When: February 3 to 4, 10 am to 5 pm
Where: Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street
Price: Tickets start at $12 and are already available online
