Ottawa Tea Festival

Ottawa Tea Festival

What: The second annual festival in Ottawa devoted to all things tea, with most of Ottawa’s independent tea retailers on hand selling teas and gift baskets (several pairing tea with locally made chocolates and even brownies.) Presentations will be made hourly at the festival on everything from a traditional Japanese tea ceremony to Bollywood dance.

Vendors: 25 booths, from the Tea Association of Canada to Gatineau’s Cha Yi tea house.

Special note: Boozybrownies, the newest collection from Ottawa’s Carolina Foresti, will be available at the show and would make great Christmas gifts for the non-teetotallers on your list; $2 each or $12 for an attractive box of six, they include Bailey’s Irish Coffee, Amaretto and Bourbon Dulce de Leche (dulce de leche recipe from Foresti’s native Brazil).

Where: The Ottawa Convention Centre (Sunday workshops at other ByWard Market locations.)

When: The festival goes from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1. Four additional workshops, including a $45 five-course tea-and-food pairing dinner, will be held on Sunday, Dec. 2.

Admission/parking: Admission is $15. Pay parking is available at the Rideau Centre (which is also on dozens of bus routes).

Best Seller!

For the past two weeks we have a new best seller!

Perfect for  those who can’t decide, the new flavor is half chocolate fudge and half dulce de leche. And all goodness!
