Afternoon Tea is an art and should be an extraordinary experience one that you will cherish. Vancouver has some wonderful places for you to indulge in an Afternoon Tea experience. Each of the places is unique in what they offer along with the type of service and selection of sandwiches, pastries and desserts. I am on a journey around the city to find these extraordinary places.
I indulged in their Valentines Tea service where their chef has designed a wonderful menu to pair with the TWG teas to celebrate this special day.
Started off with a cup of the Ceylon Uva Highlands black tea (T300) which I loved.
Truffle Mushroom Soup
Niçoise Prawn Salad
Southern French inspired confit tuna belly and seared shrimp accompanied by a mesclun salad elegantly garnished with baby potatoes cooked in purple buds tea, edamame, sweet bell peppers and taggiasche olives toss in a. Sweet and sour honey lemon dressing.
Roasted Hokkaido scallops and blue diamond shrimp accompanied by braised citrus radish, silky purple sweet potato mash, cream cabbage and sweet pods, served with a French Earl Grey infused cream sauce.
