One of our absolute favourite tea houses in Vancouver has just received a luxurious makeover!
TWG Tea recently celebrated its inaugural arrival into North America with a most glamorous red carpet affair held at its first Salon & Boutique.
Located within Vancouver’s upscale retail hotspot, the star-studded launch attracted hundreds of guests, members of the media and notable celebrities including international top model Coco Rocha. In addition, guests were treated to entertainment from artists including GirlOnWax DJ Emilita and internationally-renowned saxophonist Karla Sax (love that name!).
Echoing the world of high fashion, music and tea, the event harmonized perfectly with TWG Tea’s phenomenal reputation for creativity and excellence.
Within the crowded salon, we were invited to sample a variety of delightful tea-infused canapés and petit-fours paired with a variety of hot or iced teas and tea-infused cocktails.
The exotic array was inspired by TWG Tea’s globally influenced offerings of single estate harvest teas and exclusive tea blends. We’re excited to try their revamped gourmet tea-infused menu as well.
“In response to demand for high-quality tea, TWG Tea continues to expand its global presence,” said Taha Bouqdib, President, CEO & Co-Founder of TWG Tea. “Vancouver is a global city that seamlessly blends elegance and luxury with approachability – a perfect fit for the TWG Tea brand.”
TWG Tea Salon & Boutique is comprised of an intimate tea salon that seats 50, a retail boutique and takeaway patisserie counter featuring tea-infused sweets.
Dominated by a tea wall crowned by a priceless collection of hand-painted tea tins, the boutique showcases a curated selection of objects d’art, including a rare antique brass patisserie counter, glittering floor lamps and ornate mirrors. The space is finished in rich woods, gleaming polished brass and fine Italian marble. Just the spot we’d like to indulge over tea in this very wintery Vancouver.
