“Drinking tea has always been a part of my family’s everyday ritual, from early morning, to mid afternoon, to the last sip after a comforting dinner. Through my work I have enjoyed using teas in various thirst–quenching beverages, hot and cold, as well as an important ingredient for a cornucopia of recipes, from savory to sweets. Tea is an important part of culinary history from years gone by to modern day.”

His other television segments have included working with NBC’s The Today Show during the 2010 Winter Olympics, BBC and Sky Television, The Discovery Channel, both from England as well as the Food Network, USA and Canada, and New Zealand and Japan TV.

In 2006 he was nominated for the national Gemini Awards (Humanitarian) for his dedicated work with the Dr. Peter Centre, the Vancouver hospice for people living with HIV and AIDS.
