Happy Earth Day!
Today we're sharing 5 ways you can celebrate through tea:
1. bring a reusable travel cup into the cafe
2. use tea leaves as a source of nutrients for your garden
3. buy loose-leaf blends to minimize packaging
4. replace your hair conditioner with tea - brew and let it sit in your hair for 5 min. before rinsing
5. use brewed tea as an eco-friendly floor cleaner.
#SaturdaySips : Green tea leaves + buds that are picked in the early days of spring are fresh and new which means they're lighter, more delicate and hold extra flavour for a better harvested tea. Spring leaves are also higher in antioxidants, vitamin C and other nutrients because the plants send out additional polyphenols to protect the leaves #weekendvibes#wellness#greentea#everydaytea

Have you ever been fooled by a beautiful decor? Well I just have!
I went to try @chaleteamerchant thinking it would be a great place to get some work done, but it was quite the opposite. Maybe the fact that the place was totally empty (and has almost been the whole time I’ve been there) should have warned me? Besides the fact that I kept my jacket on the whole time because of the very chill temperature, what really bothered me was the loud rock music playing on a radio station full of commercials. I have nothing against rock music, but in a tea place like that, I would expect something more peaceful and not so loud! I hate to say this, but @starbuckscanada has WAY better playlists and with NO commercials on them.
As for my drink, I had the matcha latte. Paying extra for almond milk when the drink I’m having is almost $5 still amazes me, but whatever. The drink itself was okay. It was lukewarm and really bubbly on top. The taste however was more delicate. The tea-rista answered all of my questions, but it did seem that I was bothering her.
My first time here, and probably the last one, too.
#ChaLeFAQ - Why does our Cinnamon Rock oolong and Narcissus Rock oolong come from the same Northern Fujian Province Wu Yi mountain in China but have different tasting notes? Both teas are grown semi-wild in the rock cracks of the mountain but on total
opposite sides - this leaves one tasting woody, floral and mossy and the other tasting sweet and fruity.
Meet our tea-rista Karsten! He's originally from Prince Edward Island - the land of lobster, potatoes, beaches, and of course, Anne of Green Gables. He moved to Vancouver to enjoy the best of both worlds, the city life and beaches! His favourite Vancouver spot is Third Beach and also enjoys biking along the seaway, booze cruises and baking. Karsten's favourite tea is the Cinnamon Rock oolong because it tastes like chocolate and caramel #tearista#chaleteam#yvrcafe#meettheteam

We LOVE this latte so matcha When you order this latte at our cafe, we craft each one by hand every time. First we sift the matcha powder, add hot water and whisk until it's fully dissolved. Last but not least, we pour in steamed milk and hand it to you to enjoy #matchalatte#lattelove#everydaytea#yaletown

@chaleteamerchant | Nestled on the corner of Hamilton and Davie, on cusp of Yaletown, lies Cha Le Tea—meaning, Happy Tea. The interior design by @leckie_studio is more akin to a beautiful apothecary or spiritual place—with areas for both retail and service, with a modern twist. | Article now up on whentheyfindus.com or link in profile
Friendly and handsome staff resonate the warmth and delight of the interiors and branding. | Article now up on whentheyfindus.com or link in profile.

@chaleteamerchant's avocado toast perfectly paired with a cup of Mountain Mist Tea is considerably more healthy than traditional English tea taking, but every bit as decadent. | Article now up on whentheyfindus.com or link in profile.
- Haidacore Albacore tuna toast -
Was a reall small piece of toast but generous with the toppings; however not worth it (~$7) :/ the green tea was really fragrant & nice, but they offer it by cup (~$4), not by pot 🤔
