Tea Farm ready for International Tea Day

Sunday, Dec. 14 is the day the folks at the Teafarm remind everyone that drinking tea is one of life’s civilized joys.

They’re celebrating International Tea Day. It’s actually Dec. 15 but they want to hold it on a day when everyone can attend, so Sunday it is.T he event is all about the impact of the global tea trade on workers, small growers and consumers around the world and how important it is that traditions, quality and meaning are not lost.

Victor Vesely and potter wife, Margit Nellemann, are passionate about both tea and clay and at this event, Nellemann will be drawing for one of her funky handbuilt clay teapots in honour of the day following a tradition now eights years old at the farm.

So, why not check out the world of tea on Sunday, Dec. 14 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at 8350 Richards Trail? In addition to enjoying some superb tea, you might even pick up some unique gifts for some special person.
