Profile Last Updated: February 13, 2009
For centuries, drinking tea has been one of the common rituals used to commemorate gatherings, stimulate conversation, or create feelings of relaxation. The Urban Tea Merchant is a store which brings not only the tea, but the experience of how to enjoy the delicate brews to Vancouver. Conveniently located in Park Royal, this chill-out spot is the perfect addition to a lovely shopping area.
Using only the finest teas from all around the world, this shop showcases tea from India, China, Japan and Morocco, just to name a few. Enjoy a full French tea service, iced French tea, tea lattes or smoothies (with whipped cream and chocolate shavings if you fancy!), and the famous Urban Merchant elixir tea blends.
According to the Urban Tea Merchant team, drinking tea is about so much more than just the blend of perfect leaves – it’s about the experience. Come into the tea house and feel immediately soothed by warm colours and a spacious atmosphere. Tea Ambassadors will warmly greet you and answer your questions. They can point you to the Sip by Sip chai lounge, where you can create your own tea. Reach a perfect balance at the Imagine area, where you can relax next to the Zen teapot waterfall with steaming tea and treat in hand, or the Loose Leaves area where you can choose from a wall full of exotic tea flavours to take home.
