Tired of giving mass-produced, run-of-the-mill gifts? Support your fellow citizens this holiday season and give one of these treasures, made right here on the home front.
As our gift guide week comes to a close, we saved the most forgotten—but often most important—for last. You know who we’re talking about…the people who walk our dogs, do our hair, and take care of our kids.
The best afternoon tea in Toronto will have you feeling above the hoi polloi as you escape from the hustle and bustle of city life to partake in a quintessentially British tradition.

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just about your significant other. I like to take this silly holiday as an opportunity to celebrate my friends, whether it be visiting over a high tea and champagne pj party or sending cute stationery to my long distance buds who I don’t get to see on the regular..
It was an afternoon of sipping on decadent loose leaf teas from Sloane Tea (also a great gift idea) and munching on delicious french macarons handmade by the talented Stephanie of Petit Nuage.
Enter Sloane Tea! Much like the McEwan Group of restaurants, they have a high regard for quality and beautiful presentation. Everything from their pyramid satchels that meet the need of consistency and the table-side Tea Sommelier chest create an elevated level of customer.
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…
Until we met Hoda Paripoush, we never knew there was such a thing as a tea sommelier. Very cool indeed, but that is hardly the most impressive accomplishment on Hoda’s extraordinary resume.
Hoda Paripoush is a tea sommelier, and founder and creative director of Sloane Fine Tea Merchants. Her teas are beautiful, and are gaining admiration and demand in the finest shops and restaurants across Toronto.
Steeped in style, Hoda Paripoush knows a thing or two about sensory experiences. Her passion for scent and her accreditation as a tea sommelier led her to launch Sloane Fine Teas, a collection of premium specialty blends. We sit down for a cup and a chat with the woman behind the brand…
A movement is afoot in Toronto: a modern guild of craftspeople has emerged, and they’re so devoted to the quality, aesthetic perfection and utmost delectability of food that they make it by hand.
Tea sommelier Hoda Paripoush sees very little difference between the art of creating a beautiful perfume or a delicious tea; she believes it’s all about the emotion evoked by the aroma.
