In essence the Sakura Tea service resembles the previous year and the prior year. Each item is tea infused with a distinctive flavor. Couple of the favorite stable items remains on the menu ex. miso maple glazed sablefish in butter lettuce and smoked salmon with ponzu jelly.

 

The afternoon tea service includes your choice of TWG Tea: Today we sampled White Spring, Sakura! Sakura! (the 2015 blend is sweeter and less floral compared to 2014), Jade Lotus Tea (green tea f Vietnam yields an intoxicating and heady aroma of water lilies). My favorite is Weekend in Moscow (a robust creamy Earl Grey with a hint of spiciness).

Too bad spring came fast and furious this year. The usual cherry blossoms blooming the patio has already come and gone!

The Urban Tea Merchant will also be featuring a Fix Prixe menu for dinner aside from their regular afternoon high tea menu. For example, you will be able to order a slice of this delicious Chocolate, Banana and Hazelnut cake. It is so decadent but not overly sweet.

There are many exciting things upcoming for The Urban Tea Merchant and TWG Tea. We can not tell you about it yet (I’m sworn into secrecy). You will just have to keep a close eye on them.

The Urban Tea Merchant Vancouver Sakura Afternoon Tea TWG

 

The Urban Tea Merchant Vancouver Downtown invited us to Spring start their Sakura Tea Afternoon Tea service. Two spring Singapore TWG Teas are featured – White Spring Tea and Sakura! Sakura! Tea. These two tea are only available once a year during Spring season.

  • Sakura! Sakura! Tea: An ode to spring, this fragrant TWG Tea blend evokes Kyoto’s most celebrated season. A scattering of cherry blossoms and green tea yields a most aromatic and elegant fragrance.
  • White Spring Tea: The landscape metamorphoses, hitherto grey and dry, now bright and dewy, the magic of spring transforming the world with fresh silver tips of Yin Zhen white tea and fragrant cherry blossoms. Witness this marvel in the teacup, a blend of two of the most precious and most anticipated miracles of spring.

The Urban Tea Merchant Vancouver Sakura Afternoon Tea TWG 100001

There were a few crowd favorites that remained on the menu such as the miso-maple glazed sable fish, chicken cone, smoked salmon ribbon with ponzu jelly. This year Sakura Tea Service included a new concept: dessert sushi. The sushi rice is tea infused with Sakura! Sakura! Tea and layered with sweet tea infused jelly . The tea was fragrant albeit the rice was a tad mushy. The pecan tart and the matcha madeleine were my favorite – neither too sweet and had good bite.
