Herbal teas are one of my favourite ways to incorporate the sense of taste into nature-based sessions. It fosters wonder as what appears to be a lowly leaf brings unexpectedly delicious flavours.
This spring and summer I've lead several tea-themed sessions across the Lower Mainland. Click on the photos below to learn more.
