How Do You Take Your Tea?
Off we went, out our front door and onto Roehampton Ave. The walk is not necessarily a long one, but with October firmly in place and a slight breeze at our backs, we could feel a chill beginning to form as Fall continued into maturity.
We were on our way to The Fish Street Market (2584 Yonge St.) for another full day of steeping, sharing, educating and drinking some tea with our neighbours in the North Toronto / Uptown Yonge St. community. Innofarmer Organic Tea had a fantastic first run two weeks ago and the expectations were running high once again. To be sure, we were not to be disappointed.
What can I say other than "A wonderful afternoon was had by all - ourselves, the restaurant owners (Anthony and Dany), the community that stopped to talk and try our authentic Taiwan teas and even a few dogs and a rabbit!
While the number of folks that passed by couldn't compare to two weeks earlier (remember, there was a Fall Festival on Yonge St.), the friendly faces that did venture over to our table were thoroughly interested in what we were sampling and genuinely interested in discovering more about Taiwan tea.
Throughout the afternoon we were greeted by Anthony and Dany with copious amounts of delicious food - truly one of my favorite restaurants north of Eglinton Ave. - and by 6:00pm we were all but sold out of our Ginger & Black Sugar Tea samples and take-home bags.
