My hubby is an avid green tea drinker. He claims that it is the secret to his good health and well-being. I, on the other hand, enjoy the aesthetics and ceremony that goes with enjoying this beverage. So on our last trip to Stratford, he was ecstatic checking out the quaint tea shops. Our first stop is Harry Ten Shilling at Downie Street for afternoon tea. One can enjoy light lunch, dessert or traditional tea inside the delightful tearoom, or, take it outside if weather permits.
Next stop is a few blocks down York Street at Distinctly Tea. The store boasts of a wide assortment of tea blends, tea pots, tea cups and accessories. For the occasional drinker like me, I can try out various flavours in affordable, single-serve bags.
On top of the traditional food-themed tours, a guided tea tasting should be added to Stratford's offerings of themed culinary experience. We cannot wait to go back and discover more hidden gems in this gastronomic paradise.
Have a tea-rific day!
