The summer solstice is just around the corner, and we invite you to celebrate with us! In this virtual event, Allard Law alum Garret Chan (LLB 1993) will take us through an expert tasting journey of a variety of unique tea blends from TEALEAVES. After that, we’ll experience a Zero Proof Mixology demonstration, and learn how to craft a refreshing iced-tea mixed beverage just in time for patio season. As a special guest of TEALEAVES, Chef Bruno Feldeisen (The Great Canadian Baking Show) will also join the conversation and treat us to a demonstration of a summer-inspired small bite!
A small-group mingle opportunity will be provided toward the end of the event. Attire: garden party optional!
This event is open to all our alumni. Registration is free, but space is limited. A complimentary garden party gift box, including a tea blend sample from TEALEAVES, is available for attendees residing in BC (while supplies last).
UPDATE: Please be advised that the complimentary gift boxes have all been reserved and are no longer available. Alumni are still welcome to register to attend the event.
