Tea For Two ~ Victoria’s White Heather Tea Room

Victoria, BC - June 26, 2010: While my wife and I were visiting Victoria this weekend we were hell bent on discovering a new tea house...something a little different than the notable High Tea service that the Empress Hotel routinely provides. Our internet search uncovered a quaint establishment called the White Heather Tea Room. The reviews from patrons were highly complimentary so we decided to give it a whirl.

We ordered the tea house’s best-selling “Big Muckle Giant Tea for Two.” Offering a delicious assortment of tea sandwiches, scones and other tasty treats accompanied by a selection of mouth-watering sweets, the tea service was excellent and at a cost that was less than half of what the Empress Hotel’s Tea Service costs. Taste-wise, our tea for two experience was exceptional. Kathryn sampled the exotic Balmoral tea, a blend of black tea with soft hints of Earl Grey and jasmine. while I selected the House Blend, a classic orange pekoe with a breath of Earl Grey.

Victoria’s White Heather Tea Room proved to be a hidden gem just a 10 minute drive from downtown Victoria. We will certainly make a return visit. Reservations recommended. For more information,
