At the Tea Table with Sarah Gray from Splitleaf

February 15, 2018 in At the Tea Table

When I see a space spruced up with lush greenery, I think of this next person I have joining me at the tea table and her self proclaimed “plant hoarder” status. Aside from being a plant mama and cat mama to one of the cutest cats ever, Sarah Gray is also a professional photographer and the creator behind Splitleaf. While she may not have any Camellia sinensis (the tea plant) in her collection today, she is a lover of the beverage that the plant produces. At the tea table, we talked about how Canada’s favourite coffee shop, Tim Horton’s, is responsible for her tea love, what her ideal tea + plant space would look like, and some of her local spots for a good cup of tea.

2018 Toronto Tea Festival Awards

The Unofficial 2018 Toronto Tea Festival Awards

You can’t have a great festival without great vendors! There were so many things to mention in my Toronto Tea Festival recap this year that I couldn’t properly recognize some of the vendors in that one post. It was a long and snowy ride home after the festival so I had time to come up with the idea of doing my own 2018 Toronto Tea Festival Awards to make sure I highlight as many wonderful vendors as possible. Mind you, I definitely was not able to get to every single company at the festival, so this fun award style post will be focusing on the ones I did get to visit and left a lasting impression.

February 6, 2018 in Tea Events

I’m back from an incredible weekend at the Toronto Tea Festival 2018! Sadly, the festival is over and it’ll be another year until the next one. On the bright side though, I couldn’t have asked for a better tea experience. Throughout the festival I shared as much as I could on Instagram and I received a lot of direct messages from fellow tea lovers asking if I would recommend this tea festival. My answer is always an immediate YES! If I could only go to one tea festival my entire life, I would pick the Toronto Tea Festival in a heart beat. Here’s a recap of the tea filled weekend that may encourage you to start planning your trip for next year. Read more…

National Hot Tea Month may be over, but celebrating the beverage will never stop.
