Carolina’s box of goodness

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).

The Ottawa Tea Festival

The Ottawa Tea Festival will be this weekend, on November 5th at the City Hall.

You will have an unique opportunity to taste different teas and pair them with Carolina’s artisan brownies.

It’s an one of a kind  experience. This day is all about fun, new ideas and coming together to support orphaned kids from the Tsunami and earthquake!

Stop by my table to try some brownies!
