Afternoon Tea

Afternoon & High Tea Victoria

Tea culture has been engrained in the history of Victoria since the first wave of European settlers arrived here. When the British immigrated to Victoria, they brought the practice of Afternoon Tea with them and it has been an honoured tradition ever since.

Today, Afternoon Tea is as revered as it has ever been, but in true Victoria style, this traditional affair has been reinvented with a distinct West Coast, contemporary eco flair: think honey produced in local rooftop apiaries, seaweed-infused teas and Asian-influenced menus. Rest assured though, Afternoon Tea in the more traditional British style is still alive and well at many of the city's tearooms.

If you're in a rush, don't forget that you can always get your Afternoon Tea to go at one of the city's many loose leaf tea shops like Murchie's Tea & Coffee or the Silk Road too!
