Had an affair with The Urban Tea Merchant this afternoon with their Sakura Westcoast Tea Service over delicious White Spring Tea. The salon, recently expanded to accommodate more folks itching for a spot to chit-chat over high tea with pinky’s up. The Urban Tea Merchant is a tea salon with afternoon high tea in Vancouver downtown next to Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie.
Luxury tea brand TWG Tea in Sakura! Sakura! Tea: cherry blossoms and green tea yields a most aromatic and elegant fragrance. White Spring Tea: A lighter silver tips of Yin Zhen white tea and fragrant cherry blossoms.
Sakura Westcoast Tea Service starts at 38 / pp with your choice to add champagne if you are feeling extravagant! Perfect for those celebratory luncheons!
This year, the Sakura afternoon tea set is feeling the Hawaiian vibe, decked out with an umbrella and leafy greens and blossoms. Last year’s Sakura afternoon service played with the idea checked tatami mats.
Sakura! Sakura! Tea infused seared tuna tataki wrap. The tangy dressing just livens the fish. If the wrap was a deep fried wonton wrap it would be even better. Lapsang Souchong Tea infused chicken spoon salad. How cute, it is served on a spoon.
Open-faced smoked salmon sandwich: glazed with wasabi aioli and maple soy ponzu jelly. The small sliver goes a long way. Miso-maple sable fish in a soft butter lettuce: Warm buttery soft sable fish. My all time favorite.
TWG Tea infused macaron, TWG Tea chocolate bonbon, chevron strawberry and chocolate dipped “Matcha”Madeleine.
What a beautiful afternoon to soriee over afternoon tea while cherry blossom watching.
