Earlier this summer we were asked to provide a conference venue. The Garden Gate livingroom extension proved to be more versatile than we thought as you can see here. We had enough power, space and the group was impressed with the setup. Then we had a wedding reception here for close to 30 guests. It was absolutely lovely.
This past week we had a relatively local chapter of the Red Hat Society visit The Garden Gate. They are such a pleasure to serve! Looking at their red hats and purple attire, these ladies sure know how to have fun.
Our tea sales have been brisk and I want to introduce a few new teas that have been imported from California. We have a new white tea called Summer Rain, a rooibos that satifies the chocolate banana lover in all of us, a green tea where each two top leaves together with the bud have been hand-rolled into small pearls which throw your senses into a virtual jasmine garden in your imagination once the water begins to unfurl the pearls in your teapot. Finally, we have my favourite – Mandarine Silk Oolong tea that hits your olfactory senses with a comparable scent of a melting Werthers butterscotch candy. The smoothness of this golden cup is nothing but exotic and addictive!
All our teas at The Garden Gate are available both during your visit here for a tea, or for sale by the ounce. Please stop by and taste the difference that a luxury loose tea can make in your day. We are open by reservation and take tea orders by phone for pickup or delivery by Canada Post.
