A Teaser!

I am a lifelong tea drinker just finishing off a Tea Sommelier course at George Brown College.   I took this course purely for interest and to exercise my brain! 

The purpose of this blog is for me to share all my knowledge and experiences with tea.  I learned so much from my courses and found that not only do I enjoy talking about tea, but that people wanted to know all about what I learned.  What better way to share my new found knowledge than by setting up a blog?  Yeah, there are plenty of other tea blogs, but I think there is always room for others to share their own unique experiences.  Hopefully you’ll get some value from this blog and perhaps even teach me a few things. 

I am by no means an expert on tea.  There is so much to learn!  Tea is not just for drinking you know!  It has a variety of uses.  You can cook with or use it as part of your beauty regimen. It’s medicinal!  It has enormous health benefits.  Tea is steeped in history.  Some stories will fascinate you, while others will leave you sipping mad!  I’ll be exploring these areas as well as hitting the high tea hot spots, discussing the latest trends and blends, and going over the various teas and their processing methods. 

Did you know that all tea comes from the same plant?  They are just processed and manufactured differently to give each type of tea its unique aromas, flavours, and characteristics.

So please join me on the tea route as I approach the subject in a fun and entertaining way!  It’s gonna be a trip!
