Sometimes the best thing for us really is a nice cup of tea - and if it can come with a good dose of satisfaction, all the better. Today's Buytopia deal will leave you all warm and tingly in more ways than one…
For $30, you get a ticket to the international Art of Tea conference on June 18th - normally a $60 value. And the icing on the cake is that all proceeds go to the MJF Charitable Foundation and its work to help women with cancer in Sri Lanka. Oh, and there's icing on the icing: plenty of free tea samples for Buytopians!
Enjoy high tea with international tea experts and lavish your taste buds with traditional high tea foods - scones with cream and jams as well as cucumber sandwiches, but including new twists such as rose petal and lavender scones, green tea short breads, and tea flavoured cakes among the many sweets and treats that promise to help you explore the sensual tastes of tea with food. When you think you've had enough, how about discovering some amazing chai brownies? … Plus a special edition of Sri Lankan sweets to accompany the Ceylon teas. Along with food pairings and tea displays, the event also features sessions on the social history of tea - and its role into the 21st century. Of course, you can always continue your tea discovery at home with all the samples you'll take home…
The Art of Tea takes place on Saturday June 18th, 2011, at 11:30am until 3:00pm at St. Lawrence Town Hall - 157 King Street East, the Grand Ballroom, 3rd floor.
