I hope you’ve all had a tea-rrific Christmas & holiday season!
I got even more tea to add to the tea stash and some teaware that I’m very excited about – including a gong fu tea set from China and a tea mug with an infuser! More on all of that later when I get around to doing some reviews.
The regular twice-weekly tea reviews will resume next week. If you have any tea suggestions, please let me know here.
Happy holidays and best wishes for 2016!
The Vancouver Tea Society is hosting its second tea festival! I wasn’t particularly into tea when the first one was held (2013), so it makes me really happy that they’re having another tea festival. The 2015 Vancouver Tea Festival is being held this year on Saturday, November 21st from 10am to 6pm at the Croatian Cultural Centre in Vancouver. Tickets are on sale via the Vancouver Tea Festival website for $9.95/ea – at the time of writing, the Groupon for the tea festival is still active (2 tickets for $12).
There will be over 30 vendors, and I’m excited to learn about new-to-me brands and companies, as well as being able to connect with companies that I already know and love. I will be sharing about my experience at the Vancouver Tea Festival shortly after November 21st.
Will you be attending the Vancouver Tea Festival?
This is my first post on One More Steep and my first official step into the world of tea blogging. My name is Michelle and I’ll be your host here at One More Steep. I stumbled into the rather extensive world of tea when I was gifted a Davidstea gift set from a friend for my birthday in 2014 and it was all downhill from there!
My previous encounters with tea were primarily with tea made at home (I am very partial to Hong Kong style milk tea made with orange pekoe, evaporated milk, and sugar), and tea when going out for dim sum. Since my birthday in 2014, I’ve expanded my tastes from my ever-present tea staples (orange pekoe & Earl Grey) to include some new favourites!
I’m happily drinking tea on a daily basis and will be sharing some of my favourites and some new-to-me teas right here on One More Steep. I’m also on Bloglovin’ if you want to follow me there!
