A journey through our October & November High Tea!

Posted on

Your table awaits. 

If you haven’t had a chance to enjoy our October & November High Tea yet, join us on this photo tour of our mouthwatering October sweets and savouries. Every bite is a treat, and we think you’ll love these seasonal offerings.

Upon being seated at your table, you’ll be invited to browse our extensive Tea Menu to select the perfect tea to go with your meal.

Will you choose our fan-favourite Creamy Earl Grey, or try something new and exotic like our fragrant Milk Oolong?

Your tea will be served piping hot, with a tea cozy to keep it warm as you enjoy our Tower of Treats…

Where to begin?? We wouldn’t blame you if you started off with our hand-crafted desserts on the top tier!

But may we suggest starting with our savouries: Secret Garden Egg Pinwheels, Smoked Turkey and Housemade Basil Pesto on Mini Croissants, and South American Shrimp Salad on Aged Cheddar Muffins. 

Our savouries are so filling, but hopefully you’ll save room for…

Our next tier features Tea Cakes and a light, flaky Fruit Scone served with Devonshire Cream and raspberry jam.

Tea Cake flavours vary daily. If you join us on Sunday you’ll enjoy Chocolate Zucchini tea cake, while those on Thursday will enjoy White Chocolate Cranberry tea cake. Every day is different!

Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Our desserts are baked fresh in-house, and each one is a miniature masterpiece.

The Mini Lemon Tart is a classic Secret Garden treat. A buttery tart shell holds the perfect mouthful of tangy lemon filling. Next, our Harvest Pecan Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla-Cinnamon Chantilly is reminiscent of festive Thanksgiving celebrations, with an added gourmet touch.

And no High Tea would be complete without some chocolate! Double Chocolate Banana Brioche Pudding is the perfect way to end your High Tea experience. Rich chocolate and creamy banana make this sweet both decadent and delightful.

Won’t you join us for High Tea this fall?

We hold three High Tea seatings per day at 12 noon, 2:15pm, and 4:30pm. Reserve your table online or call us at (604) 261-3070 to reserve your table.

We look forward to hosting you for a special High Tea experience!




Teas for Fall

With the weather getting cool, we take refuge in a hot cup of tea. Of course, you’ll see us sipping our favourite Creamy Earl Grey all year round, but here are a few more of our favourite fall teas you may not be as familiar with:

Masala Chai

Full of warming spices like ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg, our Chai is the perfect black tea to cozy up to by the fire. Add a splash of milk and sugar for a rich, decadent brew.

Creamy Caramel Rooibos

Sweet caramel and nutty rooibos are a match made in heaven. This caffeine-free blend yields a comforting, dessert-like cup.

Ginger Lemongrass

This spicy-sweet elixir is our go-to tea when we catch a cold. Warming ginger and citrusy lemongrass create a healthful blend that we can sip anytime of day.
