The tea tastes different in Dawson Creek (and the Hart)

Posted on 15 December 2012

Today is International Tea Day. Canada doesn’t celebrate it, but I used it as an opportunity to tell a story that I’ve wanted to for a long time. This past summer, I was visiting my grandma in Dawson Creek when we started talking about tea flavours and wondering whether differences in tap water might affect it. This led to me comparing mineral levels in different neighbourhoods around Prince George, researching a 2,000-year-old treatise on tea, and calling up one of western Canada’s only tea sommeliers. Have a cup, and listen at Daybreak North or in my audio portfolio.
