Drinking tea is one of life’s simple pleasures. Served iced or hot, nothing can comfort you like a cup or a glass of tea can.
With over 150 varieties of tea available for sale, The Great Wall Tea Co. in New Westminster’s River Market has black, green, white, Oolong, Rooibos, and herbal teas, truly something for everyone.
I was looking for a tea that I could make at home iced, so I chose the Goji Pomegranate green tea blend ($10 for 100 g). It was a good choice : light and refreshing, and once I made it, perfect with a tad of vodka ;)
The staff are very friendly and courteous. They spent time educating me about the types of teas they carry and offered me samples. Once I made my choice, they wrote the instructions on the bag on how to ice the tea and the amounts I needed to get full flavour out of it. It was a nice touch.
