New Vegan High Tea at The Secret Garden Tea Company in Vancouver, BC Canada

Many of you have been asking for vegan options, so we’re thrilled to share our brand new Vegan High Tea with you!

We also have a new Vegan Scone, and new vegan lunch menu items. All items are completely egg, dairy and honey free. So far the feedback on our vegan menu has been great! One customer shared, “I thought that the Vegan High Tea would be a compromise. It wasn’t!”

We also still offer our popular Gluten Free High Tea and Vegetarian High Tea. We hope these new vegan offerings will make it even easier for more people to enjoy our delicious tea and treats!

Celebrations at The Secret Garden

Posted on

Secret Garden customer Pam Grossman recently celebrated her 60th birthday over High Tea! She shared:

“We all lead such busy lives, thus in celebration of my 60th birthday, I thought the perfect way to slow down, relax, and truly warm one’s soul was to spend time with friends & family while enjoying tea and treats at The Secret Garden. What a wonderful, memorable way to spend a cold crisp Saturday afternoon!”

Happy birthday, Pam!

Tea Quotes

Tea Quote - As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything... In case of Armageddon, steep for three to five minutes.

“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

Teas to Relax With - Creamy Earl Grey

A simple pot of tea can be the perfect antidote to a hectic day. Just steep, sip, and let your worries drift away. Here are a few of our favourite teas to relax with after a busy day:

Creamy Earl Grey

This is our most popular black tea, and for good reason! Smooth black tea and citrusy bergamot create a fragrant, soothing infusion. The addition of creamy vanilla is our unique take on this quintessential British afternoon tea.
