Steep yourself in lore and culture of tea at 2nd Toronto Tea Festival

  • Print

TORONTO - Tea, an ancient beverage that seems to be enjoying a resurgence in status among many Canadians who want a change from coffee, is the focus of an upcoming weekend festival.

The Toronto Tea Festival, which is slated to run Feb. 1 and 2, features certified tea sommeliers, internationally renowned authors, local artists, musicians and vendors who are prepared to steep the curious, novice and connoisseur in tea lore and culture.

Events will include complimentary tea tastings, tea-food selections, formal tea ceremonies and seminars and presentations. There will also be blends of tea, tea-related products and tea ware for sale.

"Tea is one of the fastest growing segments of the beverage market, and this festival presents an opportunity for interested consumers to explore many aspects of tea culture, and be introduced to new tea products, under one roof," Bill Kamula, chair of the Tea Guild of Canada, said in a release.

It's the second year for the festival, which takes place 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day in the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library.
