Tea for the whole family

Family-friendly tea for all generations at The Secret Garden in Vancouver

A long-time Secret Garden customer recently shared some of her favourite teatime memories:

Judith has been a Secret Garden customer since the very beginning. Soon after the Secret Garden opened, her family developed a multi-generational tradition of meeting for lunch at the Garden every Saturday. As Judith’s mother became older and less mobile, this Saturday gathering with children and grandchildren became a very special highlight in her week.

Judith’s family also took their new-found love of High Tea abroad. While traveling in London they visited many well-known spots for tea, including Fortnum and Mason, The Dorchester, and Brown’s Hotel. While each tea was delightful, in the end they decided they actually preferred Secret Garden’s High Tea over the more traditional British High Teas!

“The Secret Garden continues to play an important role in our family life,” Judith explained. “We always attend special occasions including Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day. Everyone in the family has their favourite pastry!”

Do you have a tea story you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you!

Tea room in Vancouver - The Secret Garden

This week, we’re grateful for humour and playfulness! Sometimes the ability to laugh at yourself makes a stressful situation feel a little lighter. And sharing a laugh with a friend is one of life’s best treasures. Kids seem to get it, but sometimes grownups forget… laughter really is the best medicine!

As the holiday season approaches, we’d like to express gratitude for family. The Secret Garden recently celebrated its 22nd birthday, and our friends, parents, siblings, husbands, and children are just as much a part of the Secret Garden story as we are! Their support and encouragement has made everything we do possible. This season, we hope you have a chance to celebrate with loved ones of your own!

High Tea To Go reviewed by The Vancouverite

High Tea To Go review - The Secret Garden in Vancouver

Recently, local blogger Cindy Yu at The Vancouverite hosted a High Tea To Go party at her home. She shared:

“Secret Garden Tea Company… arguably pioneered the art of Afternoon Tea in Vancouver over the course of several decades. So it comes as no surprised that this institution would pioneer HOW we consume Afternoon Tea – by offering it “to go.”

“I recently had the opportunity to host Afternoon Tea at my House. Over 3.5 hours later, we felt content and more connected with each other. It was so lovely and in the end, I think we realized how much we needed this… Thank you, Secret Garden Tea Company for making this happen and teaching us the importance of human connections.”
