10 Best Tea Shops in Vancouver

Charge us guilty – we love coffee to death. But every now and then we yearn for that calm that only a perfectly brewed tea can offer.

So, with great dedication (and lack of funds to actually travel to England), we looked far and wide for the best tea shops in Vancouver. And while our caffeine obsession is not yet fixed, we sure have fallen in love with delicious tea selections.

Check out our list!

Known as Vancouver’s original authentic Chinese tea shop, this spot in Chinatown is a local tradition infused into every cup. 

If you’re into that genuine Chinese tea experience, Treasure Green Tea Company is where it’s at in the city. They serve up the real deal here, bringing in top-notch ingredients straight from suppliers in China. 

What makes this place truly authentic is their dedication to doing things the old-school way. Forget about quick grab-and-go service – here, it’s all about taking the time to brew your tea right. 

This means no tea bags dunked in hot water from a dispenser; each drink is carefully prepared right in front of you at the counter. They strain, steep, and pour the tea with precision, that’s why every sip is just perfect.

If it’s your first visit, give their Iced White Mojito tea a shot. It’s their bestseller for a reason, made with organic white tea infused with lemon, mint, and honey. Truly, it’s the ultimate refreshing summer drink – even if it’s warm on your hands!

It wouldn’t be complete to talk about tea spots in Vancouver without mentioning the Secret Garden Tea Company. This place is a must for its wide range of teas, delicious treats, and excellent takeout options. 

Here, you can book a spot for high tea if you’re in the mood for tiny cakes, croissant sandwiches, scones, and fruit tarts. Of course, these delicious treats will go well with your choice of black, green, herbal, or rooibos tea.

And if you’re in a hurry, no problem! You can grab your tea to go. Even then, you still get a little taste of the tea party experience, with a mini pitcher of milk and sugar cubes in a cute painted bowl alongside your paper cup.

But really, don’t miss out on their famous Secret Garden Secret – a black tea with a vanilla and surprise fruit twist that changes every day. Who knows? The next time you swing by the tea shop, you might just be surprised by the secret fruit flavor of the day!

Murchie’s is one of the go-to spots for tea lovers in Vancouver, with eight locations across the province and a history that goes way back to the 19th century. 

They really lean into their British and Canadian roots when it comes to naming their teas and coming up with flavors. With a whopping 130 varieties on offer, you’re bound to find something you love!

They offer some uniquely Canadian blends like Sugar Maple tea (bursting with maple flavor) and the favorite Rocky Mountain black tea. You’ll also find blends like Prince Charles Blend, the same one made in ’81 for the big royal wedding.

But don’t let the fancy names drive you away – Murchie’s teas are all about flavor. One standout is their Bumbleberry Rooibos, a fruity and fragrant herbal tea perfect for unwinding after dinner. 

And before we forget, it’s caffeine-free and sugar-free, so you can sip guilt-free!
