There are many great ways to enjoy an afternoon with friends. One special way to enjoy a wonderful cup of hot tea, or even better by making it into an affair with a complete afternoon tea service. Shaktea is doing just that. Shaktea is serving up a delightful selection of teas and snacks in their quaint teahouse located on Vancouver’s Main Street.
The tea selection is abundant, but not overwhelming. There are the classics, like everyone’s favourite Earl Grey, which is the world’s first known scented tea, to the lesser known Rooibos tea blends like Vanilla Honeybush. From herbal infusion to classic black’s, green’s and white’s, the friendly staff will help with finding the right tea for you.
But the tea extravaganza is just beginning. The lunch and afternoon tea menus are packed with treats infusing the wonderful teas too! The croquet Monsieur, a black forest ham and melted emmanthal sandwich has an organic Lapsand Souchond dressing. And for dessert, relax with Cream Earl Grey shortbread cookies and French Earl Grey drinking chocolate.
Shaktea also offers an afternoon tea service, served in a traditional tier-style, but with an Asian influence of Tofu wraps and Tsai Lo Mei (Hong Kong style vegetarian pork and chicken wrapped in endive).
Shaktea is located at 3702 Main Street in Vancouver, and is open daily from 11:00am – 6:30pm.
