    Sipping Afternoon Tea




    Ah, teatime. Just the sheer mention of this cherished time of day evokes a flurry of excitement for flavorful tea along with bite-sized delectables stacked in a multi-tiered serving stand. It’s safe to say that we all can conclude that the British have mastered afternoon tea, no surprise there. But you might be surprised to know that Canada’s British Columbia province has also perfected this time-honored British tradition.

    Here are some suggestions for you to experience a afternoon tea while visiting London or Vancouver.

      Enjoy an elegant high tea at The Milestone Hotel in London.

      London, England

      Seated across from Kensington Palace, the five-star Milestone Hotel - Opens a dialog is ideally positioned for a well-deserved afternoon tea. Considered to be one of the best places to enjoy afternoon tea, the Milestone offers quite an indulgent experience. Start off with a Glass of Royal Warrant-awarded Lanson Champagne. Later, while you enjoy a vast array of goodies such as macarons, eclairs, tarts, and sandwiches, sip on one of their bountiful selections of loose-leaf teas.

        In London’s West End, you can experience a unique afternoon tea combined with entertainment at The Stage at The Londoner Hotel. Some of London’s brightest up-and-coming stars have performed within the walls of this unexpected venue which is known for its revered teatime experience. Labeled as “Act Two,” teatime at The Stage is quite the event! In addition to all of the delectable bites (including Smoked Salmon and Devon Crab sandwiches, Black Forest Cake, Scones served with clotted cream, etc.). The teas here hail from the Far East, including an Oolong Tea from Taiwan that is Nitrogen-infused, to extend freshness (called Gaba), as well as a white tea that’s blended with hibiscus aptly named Tropical Punch.

        Afternoon Tea at The Foyer at Claridge’s is quite the event! You can choose from a Traditional Afternoon Tea, Champagne Afternoon Tea, and for the kiddies: Children’s Afternoon Tea! With all of this talk of tea, it’s clear that tea takes center stage at The Foyer, and you will find the teas here pair quite well with particular culinary treats. Whether your palate leans sweet or savory, The Foyer has something that will be a pleasant standout on your palate.

          The Dining Room Restaurant at Butchart Gardens is beautiful both inside and outside.

          Vancouver Island, Canada

          The Dining Room Restaurant at Butchart Gardens offers a teatime experience that is just as abundant and impressive as its gardens. And even if you have specific dietary requirements, The Dining Room is likely to accommodate those needs and provide you a with resplendent teatime experience through its 13 different menus for adults and 2 different menus for children.

              While traditional high teas remain a favorite at Neverland Tea Salon, seasonal and celebratory high teas are their specialty. Families who enjoy visiting Neverland will learn quickly that this isn’t a typical teatime venue. With its vast menu of specialty offerings, Neverland delights and impresses with its avant-garde approach to high tea. Their special high teas for Easter, Wimbledon, and even one for the Coronation of King Charles III are all evidence of Neverland’s creative abilities for any occasion.

                Vancouver B.C.

                “Quaint” is a refrain that is often heard when discussing high tea at Secret Garden Tea Company. The décor is very typical of a traditional tea house, however, the high tea offerings are the main attraction at this delightful tea house. Secret Garden has consistently been ranked as one of the very best tea houses in Vancouver, and its owners are determined to maintain their status by continuing to provide an experience that is designed to impress with their seasonal and special diet offerings.

                  Fun themed afternoon tea available at Notch 8 in the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

                  If you are interested in an unconventional tea service, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver - Opens a dialog offers seasonal-themed teas. The magic starts when you walk into the beautifully decorated tea room. In Spring 2023 the theme was “Sakura”, and the entire room was decorated with Japanese cherry blossoms. All of the food and even the tea itself fit wonderfully with the theme. Summer 2023’s theme is ‘The Art of Afternoon Tea’ and features bright pop-art-inspired décor with bright colors and vibrant food.
