Lots of neat things packed into this little shop at the Quay in North Vancouver. However the person manning the store was not overly approachable nor interested in helping us so unfortunately we left without buying anything. Maybe he was just having a bad day but unfortunately it didn’t leave us with a good impression:(

Amazing family run tea shop. All my favourite teas are from this shop. They have a very nice big selection of all natural teas (i.e. nothing artificial added). The father son team are always helpful and very friendly. Some of the black teas that I get from this shop are Earl grey cream, Soursop, Vanilla cream, Kambaa Kenya, Decaf Orange Spice (naturally CO2 decaf), English Breakfast and Decaf Irish Breakfast (CO2 decaf). I also get my selection of Rooibos from this shop…Provence, Florida Orange, Blueberry Bang, Pear Spice, and Marzipan. There are a few flavoured Chinese green teas I have also purchased in the past that were very nice too! I definitely recommend visiting this shop if anyone is in the area!

Profile

Bio

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
<50 total miss for my tastes
