My tea affair began before Christmas when I was buying presents for the family. Couple of people suggested tea gifts and I remember thinking "what could be so exciting about a tea?". I mean, I like to drink tea, I have a cup of green and white tea every day but popping a bag into the cup is hardly exciting at all and how many exciting tea gift choices could there be?
Without further due, I dived into the world of tea and discovered that:
- There are countless gift ideas for tea. Who would have known?
- Tea in Canada doesn't only come in tea bags!

Somewhere between that and my adulthood the image of a tin filled with little wonders that were the beautifully rolled whole tea leaves has been replaced with image and convenience of a tea bag. And so my excitement fizzled. I find that sad.
Now that I've rediscovered this wondrous plant again, I want to document my journey into its world and I want you there with me. We might not always agree on everything that I'll say, but I think it will be fun.
