Our friends at Tea Sparrow are prepping to bring the First Annual Tea Sparrow Tea-Off to Vancouver’s Heritage Hall on Sunday, October 26.
Billed as a “tea party of sorts”, each tea has been jury-approved for quality and taste, specifically chosen for the Tea-Off by its members. Tea lovers will have the opportunity to try each of the teas, learn about Tea Sparrow’s unique scoring system, and score the teas!
A 40% discount on all memberships will be offered, giving attendees the chance to build their first tea box containing four of their favourite teas from the event. Teas will also be available for individual purchase.
Upon entry, you’ll be presented with your own traditional ceramic teacup and a list describing all teas available for sampling, starting with white teas, then greens, oolongs, blacks, rooibos, and finishing with herbals. At registration, you’ll also receive a score card to track the 20 teas as you go through the sampling.
At the end of your tea tour, get more information about the teas as well as discount codes on any of the teas you enjoyed. The Tea-Off will also feature a stage of rotating speakers from tea blenders to sommeliers, on hand to answer all things tea.
