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 specialty 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.
My journey continues with My Tea Brew. Handcrafted small batch tea blends and infusions with whole natural ingredients for the optimal tea experience that I hope you will enjoy.
