Lot 35 @ Fairmont

© 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

I’m a pretty serious tea drinker. I’ve got a cupboard full of loose leaf teas, many of which are from plantations in Sri Lanka, India, and Kenya. Since my last visit to a Fairmont property they have changed to a new supplier for their tea, and, frankly, I’m pretty delighted with the change. I seriously enjoyed my cups of English Breakfast every morning from Lot 35 (the new tea brand). Rich, bold, and very smooth. And, of course, all of the tea paraphernalia makes for a great photography subject, particularly in the amazing light from all the huge windows at the Fairmont Chateau Montebello. I’ve done shots of their tea service for them in the past, but I had to do a whole new series with the new brand. I’ll be sharing more of those product/food shots later on. I also wanted another image taken with the new Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 OS ART lens to share today to celebrate my first video on the lens which you can view here:  | You can also see more photos here
