Tea at the Beach!

Posted on

Local blogger Codi at Creative Wife and Joyful Worker recently wrote about her High Tea To Go picnic at the beach! She shared:

“Myself and my friend, Samantha met at Crescent beach for a little play date. I’ve had a lot going on lately and found this day date to be so relaxing. Out came our towel, and we set up the high tea. With the tea pots and delicious spread of treats, the kids weren’t going far. They were just as into it as we were.”

“I am always thinking about gift ideas that are unique and meaningful. It really can’t get much better then quality time, good food, delicious drinks and a gorgeous setting. It’s time for me to start thinking, where can we High Tea next?”

Iced Tea Recipes for Summer

Posted on
Iced Tea at the Secret Garden Tea Company in Vancouver

All of our teas taste great over ice, but here are a few of our favorite iced tea recipes to beat the heat this summer:

Iced Hibiscus Punch

Our Blue Angel Herbal Tea is a blend of tangy pink hibiscus blossoms and fruit pieces. Naturally sweet and tangy, it’s popular with kids! To make a low-sugar “fruit punch,” brew Blue Angel twice as strong as normal, then pour it over ice in a heatproof glass. Add a splash of lemonade to taste.

Lemony Earl Grey

Creamy Earl Grey is one of our best-selling teas. A blend of citrusy bergamot fruit and luscious vanilla, it’s an enchanting twist on a classic tea. Poured over ice, we like to add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a bit of sugar to bring out the natural, refreshing citrus notes.

Jasmine Mint Green Tea

Brew our Jasmine Green Tea with twice as much tea leaves as usual. Muddle some fresh mint in a cocktail shaker, and add a scoop of ice and a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Add in the steeped green tea and shake. Decant into a glass over ice, and garnish with more mint!

Iced Chai & More

Our Buckingham Palace, Pear Green Tea, and Masala Chai are other go-to iced teas. Add some sweetener and whole milk to iced Masala Chai for an exotic teatime treat!

High Tea Review by The Swank Social

High Tea review

Local event planner Kristina at The Swank Social recently visited The Secret Garden for High Tea with her girlfriends. She wrote a review on her blog, sharing,

“The girls and I had the most relaxing time catching up, while slowly sipping on our teas and enjoying our savoury and sweet petit fours.  I can’t even tell you how great it felt to be able to sit back and connect with my girlfriends for a couple hours (or maybe three) without having to tend to requests from my little ones.

“Okay, and don’t get me started on the high tea menu.  As if the mini sandwiches and confections weren’t cute enough, believe me when I say they taste even better than they look.”
