I enjoyed tasting some of the beverages and savoury items today at a preview social for the holiday pop-up at the The Capilano Tea House in Gastown. Kicking off tomorrow is 12 days of local which runs daily through to December 23rd, you will have a chance to see some local food and beverage companies sell their products which all make great holiday gifts.
I tried the Salish Sea Stew and Bannock by Chief Janice George, with East Van Jam for the Bannock, a Nice Vice Root Beer Ice Cream Float made with The Capilano Tea’s natural root beer, as well as The Capilano Tea’s Hiking Canyon Tea.
During the daily pop-up they will feature all of these food and beverage products as well as Artisanal Marshmallows by Archimallows, Lavender Matcha by Amoda Tea and of course, lovely botanical sodas with two new seasonal flavours by Paisley. Meet the guys behind Goliath Coffee, Wize Monkey Coffee Leaf Tea, Nice Vice Cream, Feeding Change Foods and more.
The Capilano Tea House holiday pop-up happens at 221 Abbott Street in Gastown now through December 23, 2015.
