The Capilano Teahouse finally has a permanent location after having their pop-up shop at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet in Richmond. Their new location is on Abbott St right in Gastown.

They serve Indigenous teas and botanical tea sodas, foraged right here in B.C. Operated by a mother-daughter duo from the Squamish Nation. You won’t be disappointed when you taste the delicious sodas made with love, featuring the following flavours – Lavender Ginger, Rose Lemonade, Dandelion Burdock and Hibiscus.

It was a rainy day, so my coworkers and I decided to stop by for some tea and coffee before going back to work.

I love the iconic Gastown brick walls. I can imagine a lot of selfies being taken in this shop.

Elderberry Green Tea has Organic Mao Jian Green Tea with Elder Berries. If you are into teas that aren’t too flowery or smell sweet, this is a good option.

Goliath Coffee is made with an Espro Press and it does take a little bit of time to get ready.

Goliath Coffee – Cameroon Boyo is a lighter roast. It came piping hot, so I had to wait a little while before drinking it.

They have a little station to add any sugar or milk to it.
