Don’t you love it when you think of something neat, then Google it and then find out it already exists? Earlier this week I thought “Wow. It would be great if you could become a tea sommelier.” I typed it into Google and immediately got several hits for tea sommelier courses you can take in Canada. Amazing!
I also discovered there’s such a thing as the Tea Association of Canada, and that there’s an upcoming Toronto Tea Festival (Jan 31st-Feb 1st). Exciting to discover so many tea things happening in Canada. Unfortunately there are no Halifax tea festivals yet, but I’m sure someday we’ll make it happen.
In the meantime, I’ll settle for sharing cups of tea with friends. Today I had a friend over and we tried cinnamon chai tea with So Good soy milk eggnog in it. Delicious. Try it. I also have some almond milk eggnog that would work nicely (we currently have three different kinds of eggnog in our fridge. Tis the season?) . I think next time I’m going to try a frothed version using the steam wand on my espresso machine. Ah, hot beverages. Definitely one of the perks of cold weather.
