“As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything. Have a cold? Have some tea. Broken bones? There’s a tea for that too. Somewhere in her mother’s pantry, Laurel suspected, was a box of tea that said, ‘In case of Armageddon, steep three to five minutes’.”
– Aprilynne Pike

Last month The Secret Garden was featured in two local blogs!
Curiocity Vancouver named The Secret Garden as one of their top 8 Weekend Things To Do. They say:
“A Saturday high tea date is the most darling activity for a rainy weekend, and Secret Garden Tea Company is Vancouver’s most popular place to get sipping. Order breakfast, lunch, brunch, afternoon tea, or sample their beautifully homemade miniature sweets and scones.”
West Coast City Girl recommends The Secret Garden as part of her top 13 Ideas for Giving Experiences This Christmas. She writes,
“This is a great girls’ day or female family members outing. Secret Garden is always a winner (and is very good value for money!)”
The Secret Garden has a new Snapchat filter!
