History of The Secret Garden Tea Company in Vancouver, BC

If you haven’t heard the news, we’re moving this summer!

While packing for the move we came across an old photo album from The Secret Garden’s early days. Above, from left to right:

  • The original location in the process of being renovated
  • The Secret Garden sign going up
  • Andrea Wadman, original founder, with the very first High Tea
  • Kathy holding the Secret Garden’s incorporation papers

We’ve been an institution in Kerrisdale since we opened our doors in 1995. Twenty-one years have simply flown by!

Mother’s Day Tea

“Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors.”  Alice Walker

High Tea for Mother's Day - mother-daughter date at The Secret Garden Tea Company in Vancouver
Pick up some High Teas To Go for Mother’s Day and surprise your mom with a special array of sweets and savouries…and tea of course! We even have a Children’s High Tea To Go, so you can celebrate with your own little ones.

Here are a few tips to create a special tea experience:

1. Have a picnic

Weather permitting, pick up your High Teas To Go then swing by Queen Elizabeth Park or VanDusen Botanical Gardens just a few minutes away. Enjoy your treats in a gorgeous natural setting, then enjoy a beautiful walk through the gardens.

2. Hold a tea party at home

Break out your fine China and celebrate Mother’s Day with a special tea party at home. We also rent teaware to complete the Secret Garden experience!

3. Take a rain cheque

If your mother doesn’t live in town, give her a High Tea For Two gift certificate so you can enjoy tea together next time she visits!
