Tea became my passion quite unexpectedly. After moving to Toronto, growing tired of the heavy taste of coffee (and the result of its acidity) I began to explore various teas available. And then I fell in love .......... with Oolong tea.
Motivated by my new passion, my education expanded at George Brown College (a well-regarded culinary school in Toronto). After graduating as one of the first few certified Tea Sommeliers (in conjunction with the Tea Association of Canada), and with a few of my fellow graduates, we formed the Tea Guild of Canada; a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to fostering excellence in the world of speciatly tea.
A trip to remote tea villages in China followed providing the opportunity to explore first-hand the tea gardens, production, and tasting fresh spring tea with the tea masters who generously shared their vast knowledge and time over a cup of tea.
The seed was planted and a new life path began based on my passion and love of all things tea.
My journey continues with My Tea Brew; offering a collection of loose leaf teas and handcrafted tea blends with whole natural ingredients to create unuque tea blends and infusions that I hope you will enjoy.
