Collin and I went window shopping after having burger, walking along Village Stroll path in Whistler. When we were passing nearby the Whistler Olympic Plaza, we found our favorite tea shop, DAVIDsTEA.

Although their website says the address is Main street, if you walk on Main street, you won’t see this store. The store is actually faced to Village Stroll path. They have some seats inside the store, which is Whistler-tic deco.

Collin ordered from Flavoured Black tea leaf, and I ordered from Green tea leaf.

His choice was Organic Cherry Cola. Their site says, “Sweet, bubbly and tartly, cherry cola is everything we love in a drink. And with this invigorating, cherry-spiked black tea, we’re pretty sure we captured the taste straight from the soda fountain.”

My choice, Organic Sencha Ashikubo
(From their site: This premium Japanese green tea comes from the Ashikubo valley and is dried using a traditional wood fire process.)

The staff told us how long to wait from removing tea bag individually, couple min for his tea, and a few min for my tea. I think it was a professional service. 🙂

And, extra pictures of the interior and exterior of the shop.

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.

After having unsatisfying Won Ton soup, we stopped by at a tea shop. DAVIDsTEA has lots of kinds of tea leaves, and their staff explains how each one tastes like or lets us smell those leaves.

The shop is not only a store to buy but also a cafe that you can sit and relax with your drink. One of their shops is located on Johnson street in downtown Victoria.

We both ordered from Green tea leaf.

Gyokuro Yamashiro
(From their menu: Unlike regular green tea, this is shaded for 6-7 weeks prior to plucking, so it’s dark, extra-energizing, and extremely rare outside of Japan.)

Organic Ever Green
(From their menu: Inspired by David Suzuki, this fruity blend combines Japanese Sencha with Canadian-sourced, sustainably harvested ingredients.)
