If you are looking for different ways to celebrate and ring in Lunar New Years, I am excited to share with you the Year of the Pig themed afternoon tea at H Tasting Lounge at The Westin Bayshore in Vancouver, Coal Harbour neighbourhood. The stylish lounge is offering a Chinese New Year inspired high tea with traditional Chinese dim sum cuisine such as BBQ Pork Puff, Braised Pork Belly Bao, Shrimp Dumpling, Seared Nian Gao, etc. delivered to you on a playful carousel display makes for a photo-worthy table situation.
The Year of the Pig Chinese New Year afternoon tea is available between February 2 to 24th at $55 per person.
H Tasting Lounge features a great tea selection from TEALEAVES. For this particular Lunar New Year, it features two green tea blends from their Fortune Collection: Floral Jasmine Green (fresh mellow overtones with a slightly astringent finish) and the Dragonwell Organic Green (3rd grade Dragonwell with mature tea leaves picked during later spring that is mild tasting with a beautiful pale celadon liquor).
Or option to add Year of the Pig Cocktail. The Year of the Pig cocktail ($16) will be available throughout the remainder of February. The aromatic blend includes Johnnie Walker Black Scotch whisky, golden apple and ginger-infused vodka, Buddha’s hand citron jelly, yellow chrysanthemum tea, and lemon juice.
If you prefer to share your mocktail drinks with your toddler like we did, I highly recommend their Free Spirited Beverages:
Tea & Tonic (red): Tealeaves Mountain Berry Tea, freshly squeeze lemon juice, raspberry syrup, Ms. Betters Bitters green strawberry bitters
Yuzu Spiritz (green): Yuzu syrup, freshly squeezed lemon juice, Ms. Betters Bitters cucumber.
Every afternoon tea set includes cotton candy and scones. It’s hard keeping your hands off it!
