You have probably heard about wine sommeliers. Well, a tea sommelier similarly shows you how to best pair tea with foods in order to enhance the flavour. The correct pairing of food and tea can make a huge difference. If you have always been meaning to try something other than pekoe tea bags, here’s your opportunity. Learn how to make a perfect cup of tea.

Sommelier Tracey Carr-Snyder will increase your knowledge of tea in a delightful way. Did you know that for centuries tea was used only as medicine? It took 3,000 years for it to become an everyday drink. Tea arrived in Canada in 1716, imported by the Hudson’s Bay Company, and took a year to arrive. In the mid 1700s, afternoon high tea was for working men, taken standing up or sitting on tall stools, thus “high” tea.

We are a volunteer organization and all funds raised go directly to the Rescue cats.
