I always make a point to stop in to Silk Road when I’m in Victoria. I enjoy the ambiance of the store, and the spa items are always interesting to browse through. I have purchased some very nice blends from them over the years, and I’ve also attended a couple of their tea workshops, which were fun and informative.

I started frequenting Steeps in old Glenora around 2001, and I still visit at least once a week. They offer a delightful selection of loose teas, matcha, and other beverages, as well as light food and desert items. A delightful place with a unique atmosphere to meet friends and enjoy a lovely brew.

Bio

I’m currently working towards my Tea Sommelier certification from the Tea Association of Canada.

Albert Einstein famously said, “I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.”
~ from Cosmic Religion : With Other Opinions and Aphorisms (1931) by Albert Einstein, p. 97

I, too, value the importance of imagination, and constantly find myself exploring its possibilities.

I was drawn to the artistic and the creative from a very young age, with my childhood friends and I creating fantastic scenarios and games with strange rules to entertain and delight ourselves. This playful sense of adventure and exploration carried over into my teen and adult artistic life.

My background contains a long history with the Performing Arts, including Theatre and Drama, Music, Composition and Songwriting, Opera, and Dance. Along the way I also discovered passions and talents within the realms of the Visual and Literary Arts including Painting, Drawing, Animation, Digital Artwork and 3D, Poetry, and Short Stories.

As an artistic soul, I enjoy the sense of play that comes with creation, and I try to ensure that this side of my life is given sufficient attention.
