Green Pear Green Tea

Creamy Earl Grey Black Tea is our daily go-to tea, but it’s easy to forget we have so many other delicious teas to enjoy. For instance, green teas are delicate and refreshing. They have less caffeine than black teas, making it a great afternoon tea option.

If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love our Green Pear Green Tea – a luscious infusion of smooth green tea, juicy pear, and rose. It pairs wonderfully with a light cheese platter or a fruit parfait!

Tea and Cookie Pairings

Here in Vancouver, the weather is turning cool and rainy. On days like this, there’s nothing more delightful than a pot of hot tea and a sweet treat when you need a break from the hectic pace of life. After a moment’s respite, you’ll be refreshed and ready to face the rest of the day!

Here are a few of our favourite tea and treat pairings:

Chocolate Shortbread and Vanilla Rooibos tea pairing

Our housemade Cranberry Chocolate Shortbread is a rich, decadent treat. Creamy Vanilla Rooibos herbal tea complements the chocolate and berries, while undertones of nutty almonds add depth.

Rosemary Shortbread and Lavender Earl Grey tea pairing

Our delicate Rosemary Olive Oil Shortbread is light and flaky, with a savoury herbal note and a hint of sea salt. We like to pair it with the gently floral Lavender Earl Grey for a sweet and soothing combination.

Oatmeal Pecan Cookies and Masala Chai tea pairing

Great big Milk Chocolate Oatmeal Pecan Cookies are a gourmet twist on a classic sweet. Filled with pecans and a hint of spice, these cookies stand up well to the ginger heat of Masala Chai.

Whatever tea and treats you pair, we hope that your tea break offers a comforting break to renew you for the rest of the day!

Iced Tea Recipes for Summer

Posted on

Iced Tea at the Secret Garden Tea Company in Vancouver

We hope you’ve been enjoying the sunshine this summer! Here’s a quick iced tea recipe to cool down with when the weather gets hot:

Steep 2 teaspoons of tea leaves in 8 ounces of boiling water, for 3 minutes. Remove leaves and add lemon, sweetener, or milk if desired.

Pour over a glass of ice, and enjoy!

With our wide variety of teas, the iced tea options are endless. Here are a few of our favourites:

Lemony Earl Grey

Our best-selling Creamy Earl Grey makes a delightful iced tea. Poured over ice, we like to add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and simple syrup to bring out the natural, refreshing citrus notes.

Vanilla Jasmine Iced Tea

Fragrant jasmine blossoms and creamy vanilla are a match made in heaven! Blend Jasmine Green Tea with Vanilla Almond Black Tea for a fragrant, sophisticated iced tea.

Iced Hibiscus Punch

Our Blue Angel Herbal Tea is a blend of tangy pink hibiscus and fruit pieces. Naturally sweet, it’s popular with kids! For a “fruit punch,” add a splash of lemonade.

Iced Creamy Caramel 

Our Creamy Caramel Rooibos is a unique thirst quencher. Smooth caramel and nutty rooibos yield a decadent, caffeine-free infusion. Enjoy it on its own or add a touch of milk.
