Holiday Afternoon Tea at Notch8

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.

This tea service is festive themed for the holiday season for families and friends to enjoy together. Lawrence joined me for this wonderful Afternoon Tea!

I started off this tea adventure by selecting the tea that I wanted to try from the Tea selection, I started with a pot of the 1907 Orange Pekoe tea.

We then indulged with a selection of savoury canapes, seasonal Italian Panettone inspired scones, and sweets served on a three-tiered platter.

My favourites of the savouries were the Smoked Salmon on, rye bread, Whipped Goat Cheese, Shrimp Tart.

My favourites of the sweets were the Santa’s Hat eggnog cheesecake, Chestnut Eclair and the Dark Chocolate festive ornament.

The Holiday Afternoons Tea is available Friday through Sunday through to December 30 with three daily seatings at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. Reservations are now available and can be made online.
