A mod­ern tea café in Van­cou­ver and a Cal­gary jew­ellery bou­tique to check out now.

Hus­band-and-wife team Char­lie Zhang and Sue Wang jump on the farm-to-ta­ble trend with their glossy new full-ser­vice tea café and shop. In wall-to-wall wood and white lac­quer, the space is a min­i­mal­ist’s dream, with cool cop­per tins and box decor from Van­cou­ver de­sign dar­lings Glas­furd and Walker. Lo­cated in Yale­town, the shop fea­tures more than 20 Chi­nese teas sourced from in­de­pen­dent farms, with ev­ery­thing from a smoky black tea grown by a fam­ily friend in the moun­tains of Chongqing to a cin­na­mon-like oo­long to a nar­cis­sus blos­som tea grown in the rocks on two dif­fer­ent sides of the same moun­tain in Fu­jian Prov­ince. 207 Hamil­ton St.,— Carly Whet­ter
