Afternoon, or High Tea, is such a lovely tradition and Vancouver is blessed with one of the most outstanding tea salons anywhere.Afte
Recently I took a guest to experience Tea at TWG Tea Salon on West Georgia Street. The visit was wonderful and we both had a lovely time.
For just a few more days the Lunar New Year Tea is still available, soon to be replaced by the Always
Sakura Tea, one of the most illustrious and anticipated additions to Spring 2019 Haute Couture Tea
On the suggestion of our server and tea specialist we decided on Lunar New Year Tea Set, the Chic Tea Time Set Menu and the Lobster Avocado Timbale appetizer to start accompanied by the feature cocktail.
Chilled Atlantic lobster and avocado timbale seasoned with spicy citrus and honey dressing, accompanied by artisanal pickles and baby spinach drizzled with Love Me Tea infused vinaigrette
