After Collin and I left the Food Cart Fest, I went hiking in West Vancouver alone. A couple of hours later, I came down to the Park Royal and decided to sit and relax. It was again Sunday, so some places were about to close. I quickly went into the cafe.

Caffe Artigiano is at the Village side of Park Royal. There are some chairs outside, too. On the sunny day, there must be a lot of people in the cafe. When I went there, I had only one hour or so before they closed, so it was quiet and very relaxing.

I’m glad they had tea, too, as I didn’t feel like drinking coffee after hiking.

Collin and I walked along Ambleside beach, as planned, after having brunch at the bakery cafe. From the cafe, it took 30 min or so to reach Park Royal, and he enjoyed looking around one shop to another. Eventually, I was kind of dehydrated and we were looking for a tea store.

Murchie’s Tea & Coffee is in the Park Royal shopping mall, which I didn’t think you can order a drink to go. (I thought they just sell tea leaves.)

I ordered from their cappuccino bar menu.

For some reason, they put two pack of tea leaves and also the water was extremely hot, so I couldn’t drink right away and my green tea got bitter by the hot water. Here is an explanation for the best water temperature to make a green tea.
