Vancouver’s Kitsilano gets a little more chic with the opening of Salontea last week. Originally rooted in New York City, this location is Canada’s first boutique and can be found at 3010 Granville Street. Not just your average cup of tea, SALONTEA is a sought-after sipping-must for Royals and celebrities such as Oprah and Rihanna; attracting widespread global attention and demand from as far away as Dubai, Moscow, Guatemala and Cannes.
SALONTEA embraces the rich artistry of tea blending and tasting; fusing it with a unique, modern-day appeal that caught the attention of Vancouver-based, Sarah Ambrose after seeing SALONTEA President, Tracy Stern on an episode of Bravo Televisions, “Mad Fashion.”
Not your traditional tea boutique, SALONTEA’s Vancouver location will offer a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere to patrons in search of a unique tea experience where they can connect, think, write and celebrate. In addition to more than a dozen tempting, estate blended teas, customers can partake in daily tea service while perusing a selection of baked offerings, sweets and other tea-worthy treats (courtesy of neighbouring Meinhardt’s) as they take in the full spectrum of items the boutique will feature. Also available at the boutique: signed-copies of Tracy Stern’s popular book, ‘Tea Party: 20 Themed Tea Parties with Recipes for Every Occasion, from Fabulous Showers to Intimate Gatherings’.
Vancouver SALONTEA hours are 10am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 5pm weekends & holidays.
