THE charming little Silk Road tea salon is on Vancouver Island, in Victoria, the state capital of Canada’s British Columbia. Here you can book a tutored tasting of delicate Asian blends and on weekends from 2pm to 3pm there are fun workshops (learn how to prepare iced teas, sparkling tea sodas and slushies). The two-room shop is a fragrant haven of stylish packets and canisters of the best houseblended cha, including Alchemist’s Brew, with hibiscus flowers, spearmint leaves, lemongrass, rosehip and cinnamon bark. There’s also a day spa using organic products. More: silkroadtea.com.
