Tell me what's on your mind - As a certified Tea Sommelier, I'll suggest the perfect tea to pair with any and all of your desires.

What happens when you take a woman, fully immersed in the world of wine and hospitality from studying and working in New York City followed by Northern California, and introduce her to tea?

Sheena Brady did just that. She took her knowledge of terroir, and her trained palate and dove head first into the world of tea. After all, both tea and wine are heavily influenced by the changes in weather, the ground they’re grown in and the hours of sunshine they receive. Sheena is fascinated by the way everything comes together to create different types of teas all from just one plant.

Fate had her moving to Toronto to manage the city’s largest luxury hotel tea program, a library featuring over 75 premium teas sourced around the globe while working with the Tea Association of Canada which led her on an eight month journey to become a tea sommelier. Shortly after, her business, Tease Teahttp://www.teasetea.com, was born as an outlet to offer tea lovers a unique and modern tea experience. Tease Tea boasts over 40 blends curated and created in small batches for customers around the globe as well as high profile clients including Four Seasons Hotels.

However, after a decade of managing restaurants and hotels internationally, what excites Sheena most about the world of tea is it being a respected gesture of hospitality around the world for centuries. The other similarity between wine, hospitality and tea that keeps Sheena going, is similar to pairing wine & food, Sheena will pair the perfect tea to compliment any and all of your desires. Just tell her what's on your mind.

Sheena is also a trusted On-Air "Tea Expert", regularly engaging and educating SiriusXM Radio, CTV, Global News & Rogers TV viewers/listeners. You can view some of the interesting segmentshere.

Catch Up In Style Over Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea service used to serve as a snack at 4 p.m., in between breakfast and dinner -- this was well before people were eating three meals a day. Nowadays, afternoon tea is served anytime between noon to 4 p.m. I find that instead of being a snack -- the portions are large enough to replace an entire meal.
