About Me



I am an Instructor  of English for Academic Preparation in Toronto, Canada. In my free time, I watch butterflies, I make jewelry, I want to start painting again…

I started this blog to share my tasting experiences. What I really love about tea is its ability to transport me through time and space. My posts are a little bit nostalgia, a little bit escape, a little bit meditation, a little bit self-help, and a lot of learning about new teas. I’m not a trained tea professional. I would love to do a ‘Tea Sommelier’ program someday… when the marking is all finished! My tea tasting reactions are straight from the gut and unpolished. If you find any errors or misinformation, please let me know. I have a lot to learn yet! Comments are welcome!

I do accept samples, and when they have been provided, I note it in the post. Provision of samples does not affect my review. I try to maintain objectivity, regardless of the source. Even if I don’t like a tea, I will try to use it cold, or in a cocktail, or in cooking. Those will be posted too!

My photos and my words are my own, and I believe in sharing, but I ask that if you re-post my photos or my reviews, please give credit and link back to my blog, as I will give you credit for your amazing teas, and provide links to your site. Thank you for sharing responsibly.

  1. Hi Rona.
    Thanks for connecting on Twitter.
    We actually have a distributor in Toronto if you are interested.
    I am no stranger to Toronto myself, having lived in K-W, London and then Downsview for 18 years.
    If you would like some samples of our high quality teas from Northern Thailand, please don’t hesitate to contact me at: daokrajai@hotmail.co.uk

    All the very best, and happy tea tasting: John. Daokrajai Lanna Fine Teas Coordinator
