The tea scene in Vancouver has been growing rapidly in the last few years and this November will be the first ever Vancouver Tea Festival in the Olympic Village neighbourhood.
Tea for the most part been an afterthought in the Vancouver scene, always overshadowed by coffee shops, but lately Vancouverites have been gravitating towards teas. Vancouverites love to live a healthy lifestyle, and when it comes to health benefits, coffee has nothing on tea.
- The incredible diversity of teas produced means there is a taste to satisfy virtually any palate.
- The splendour of finest teas invites comparison to the world’s great wines, cheeses, and other delicacies.
- The health benefits of tea consumption are immense, and supported by an ever-growing corpus of scientific literature.
- Tea’s versatility has led to its use in an increasing variety of fresh applications, ranging from innovative cocktails to gourmet cuisine, and even to body and wellness products.
