Victoria BC Tea Meet?

Would anyone from Victoria BC (or nearby areas) be interested in meeting at one of the local tea joints sometime?

I’m not into the club scene (unlike many people my age) and so I find it difficult to get out and meet new people, so with my closest friend being on the mainland for school, I’m finding my social life is pretty nonexistent, so would like to somehow meet new potential friends. And what better way to meet people with similar interests than to meet for tea?! haha!

As far as where to go, there’s the three DAVIDs locations, Teavanna at Mayfair and the Bay center, Silk Road down in China town, and I recently was told of a place near the Bug Zoo that sells and serves Matcha (as well as offers many matcha-related classes) that I’ve been meaning to check out but haven’t for various reasons.

Anyone up for a meet n greet?

Hey! Sorry for the late reply, but I’d be totally up for it. There are a couple other Victoria residents on here too and I’m sure they’d be interested too. I’m waist-deep in schoolwork right now and haven’t even had a chance to review a lot of my new teas lately, so not sure when I’ll time to even leave my place for social adventures over the next couple weeks haha. Maybe we can all get together in the next month or two. That would be great. :D

I’m in no rush whatsoever, haha! My schedule is so flexible, so I’m game for whenever works for everyone!

This sounds like a great idea! I need to break out of my shyness.

We should perhaps first figure out which day of the week would most likely work for everyone, like a particular weekday, or maybe the weekend?

I’m in school during the week, but I’d bus over if it would work for everyone on a Saturday! Perfect excuse to get some more Silk Road teas, too.
