My name is Delano Tamborini (but you can call me Del). I'm a Vancouver-based entrepreneur, Certified Tea Sommelier instructor, consultant, and bon vivant with an irrepressible passion for the world's greatest beverage: tea.

I'm the Co-founder and Executive Director of the Vancouver Tea Society, which produces the annual Vancouver Tea Festival, and also teach the Tea Association of Canada's Tea Sommelier program at Vancouver Community College.

I believe tea should be a fun and joyous experience - always - and my mission is to share the happiness tea brings me in hopes that others' journeys of tea discovery will bring a similarly profound joy.

Happy tea drinking!
