Autumn…One of our absolute favourite seasons. Maybe it’s the way nature works its magic with the changing of the leaves, the cool, crisp air, or maybe it’s the comfort a pie brings when wrapped in buttery flaky pie dough. No matter what it is, it’s a time for comfort and festive celebration with our loved ones.
Throughout our journey at Sloane Tea, we’ve had the honour of crossing paths and developing flourishing friendships with truly talented artists and dreamers. Recently, we came together and created an incredibly memorable Afternoon Tea experience to celebrate a milestone birthday for one very special lady. As we are firm believers in “life is in the details”, we sought out to ensure that the tone of the event could be heard by guests through beautifully designed invitations by Chelsi Lee Designs. We’re fans of her bohemian chic aesthetic which was perfect for an intimate afternoon of sweet sophistication.
One of the best parts of being located in Canada’s biggest city is having the ability to connect with local talent and meet other artisans and makers. We love the incredible community of dedicated foodies in Toronto, and nothing warms our hearts like sharing delicious experiences and working side by side to make this city a world class food destination.
March has been a month full of so many delightful happenings, two of our favourites being Persian New Year, and the first day of Spring. We’re so ready for the city to fill with beautiful blooms and warm sunshine, and we wanted to come up with a tea infused recipe inspired by the change in season to share with all of you.
At Sloane Fine Tea Merchants, we believe that beauty is in the details, and we strive to make every aspect of our packaging and beautiful and intricate as the tea blends themselves. We put a lot of love and care into our tea tins, and we like to think that you might want to keep them around long after your tea is finished. In the past we’ve used empty tins as pen holders, or storage for tea accessories, but this Martha Stewart idea got us thinking- wouldn’t Sloane tins looks great filled with flowers?
We love the entire Sloane tea collection, but over the years its become quite clear that our customers definitely have a favourite- in fact this particular blend has developed an almost cult-like following! If you haven’t guessed already, it’s our Heavenly Cream, a rich vanilla bergamot Ceylon black tea that seems to enchant every tea lover it touches, and there’s no better way to enjoy it than in a fluffy, indulgent tea latte!
As fun as it can be to get all dressed up and head out for a night on the town New Year’s Eve, we often forget the importance of celebrating the new year on New Year’s Day itself. One of the few moments in an entire year where everything is closed and one can truly relax, New Year’s Day is the perfect opportunity to gather friends and loved ones together to celebrate and make resolutions in style.
