The Vancouver Tea Society, in partnership with the Classical Chinese Garden, bring an experience like no other for tea lovers across the region. Tea drinkers will gather in the beautiful, historic garden oasis to drink, learn, and explore tea and everything the beverage has to offer.

Discover new aromas and flavours from a variety of exhibitors from BC and around the globe. This year the festival features tea activities and presentations, and it provides festivalgoers with the opportunity to meet tea plant specialists and cultural experts.

This one-day annual event is a top-notch cultural experience for any devoted tea connoisseur – it’s not everyday you get to sip quality tea as you watch koi fish swim in the jade green pond.
