Tea Sparrow’s Second Annual Tea-Off
October 25, 2015 @the Heritage Hall 11-5 PM

Tea Party: a social gathering in the afternoon at which tea, cakes, and other light refreshments are served.

Tea-Off: an all-day party where this season’s 18 best teas go head-to-head to compete for top place. Come sip and score them to your heart’s delight!

Welcome to the 2nd annual Tea Sparrow Tea-Off, where you’ll have the chance to sample our members’ top-rated teas from from around the world.

Rated teas?
Welcome to Tea Sparrow, the world’s first monthly tea club AND tea critiquing company. Each tea we send out to our members has already received a high score by all 12 members of the tea-sampling tea party. Yes, tea party.

So this will be a tea party of sorts. Except every single available tea has already been jury-approved for quality and taste and chosen for this fest because it’s one of our members’ favourites. And you can try every single one of them, learn our unique scoring system and score the teas yourself! They will all of course be available for purchase individually, and we will be offering a 40% discount on all memberships, where you can build your own first tea box with your 4 favourite teas from the event.

What to Expect
Once you have entered and registered, on the day of the event, you will be given your own tea cup and a list describing all the teas available for you to sample. Then you can begin the sampling tour. While you sample all 16 teas you will be able to score them on the score card given to you at registration. At the end of the tour you will be able to collect information and discount codes on any of the teas you liked.

There will also be a stage of rotating tea events put on by tea blenders, sommeliers and tea gurus who will answer any of your tea trivia. Or you can check out the tea section where you will be able to purchase sample size packets of the featured teas, learn more about the history of our featured tea blenders and about Tea Sparrow: how our subscriptions work and our special offers.

Where the fun will be: Heritage Hall (3102 Main Street @ 15th)
When: 11 am-5 pm

Tea Sparrow was born of our family’s love for tea. Tasting it, smelling it, sharing it…Yum!

We are delighted to deliver a variety of world-class blends to your door every month – we feel we deserve it, and so do you!
