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., chaletea.com— Carly Whetter
