Where's Waldo, um, I mean Rita, this weekend?

Here are a couple of cool food and tea events in Toronto this weekend:

Saturday, June 22nd, 2 - 3:30pm - Spring Tea Tasting event at Tao Tea Leaf (934 Yonge Street)
       Come taste some of the finest and freshest Chinese teas that Certified Tea Sommelier, Tao Wu,  brought back from China.  A special award winning guest will be performing a Chinese tea ceremony.  There will  snacks as well. If you miss this, they hold frequent tea workshops.

Tao hosted the China Spring Tea Tour.  It was a fantastic experience.  I got to taste lots of teas, learn a lot about what the leaf goes through from bush to cup.  (Looking forward to sorting more photos and continuing to blog about it!)

Sunday, June 23, Noon - 6pm - EatUpTO! at 99 Sudbury St.  
          I'll be there helping out fellow Certified Tea Sommelier Donna Sikora steep and serve tea from her tea company, My Tea Brew at EatupTO! This innovative food and marketing event is a mix of farmers market and tech conference and is being presented by Now Magazine.  There'll be food industry speakers, close to 30 food and drink vendors and food trucks!  Who doesn't love food trucks!?

Click here for tickets and more information.  A portion of the proceeds will go towards Covenant House Toronto, and their Cooking For Life program.

Come out, drop by the stand and say hi!

Now back to the task at hand...those travel photos...

This is kind of how I feel with sorting my photos right now...
