Tea, Unexpectedly Naked.

Wed, 09/17/2014 - 14:20
If you read yesterday’s blog  (and if not, why not. What’s wrong with you?) you’ll know we left the Oolong Tea Shop very impressed. In fact, I left it believing it to be probably Calgary’s finest tea shop, and so, having business nearby, Lady Devotea and I decided to walk a few blocks and revisit […]

Tea with The Black Dragon

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 14:25
After a day in Banff and Canmore, there was an expectation that the next day might be quiet. The plan was a visit to the Downtown area for a look at where our son worked, a spot of lunch and then some river fishing. Visiting downtown when it’s empty and easy to get around in, […]

Short Circuit

Before I surprise all of my readers, let me just say I am quite surprised myself. Barely three months ago, Lady Devotea & I announced an exciting new adventure: moving our headquarters to the UK and in that time, Lady D has been at the helm of a new tea shop that has presented our […]
