The Urban Tea Merchant. Here's the link for the review of the Afternoon Tea Set.
Matcha raspberry lemonade @AmodaTea @FoodCartFestYVR. A fantastically refreshing mix of flavors. #summermatcha pic.twitter.com/i1roAloPnw— Georgia (@notesontea) August 9, 2015
Amoda Tea. I reviewed the company's Discovery Box offerings here (Sock It To Me by Indie Tea) and here (Autumn Masala by Nepali Tea and Heavenly Cream by Sloane Tea). I met Tegan Woo & co at Food Cart Fest at the Olympic Village. The matcha raspberry lemonade was very good!
Before heading to Whistler, we went to Granville Island and the Granville Island Public Market. I purchased a creamy, earthy matcha latter from the Granville Island Tea Company. In Whistler, in addition to the teas in my Jetsetter Tea Set from Silver Needle Tea Co., I enjoyed a refreshing masala chai latte made to order at the Whistler Tea House.
And let's not forget my sweet tooth! The gelato at Bella Gelateria lived up to the hype in Lonely Planet Vancouver.
These places are on my "next time in Vancouver tea bucket list":
- O5 Tea (this tea bar was on my list and I was disappointed that I was unable to visit it)
- Vancouver-based tea vendors like Tea Ave (oolongs!) and Wymm Tea (sheng pu-erhs!)
- The Chinese Tea Shop (I was so, so close to this shop)
- Murchie's Tea
- More afternoon teas (Van Dusen Botanical Garden, Stankely Park Rose Garden Tea House, Stanley Park Fish House)
Have you been to or do you live in Vancouver? What's on your tea (and sweets) bucket list?
