Volume 13 Issue 1 » 101 Guests have the option of upgrading their selection to a Royal Tea Set, which includes an additional tier of artisan cheeses and a glass of port wine. Younger foodies can opt for the Prince & Princess Tea Set, which comes with a selection of children-friendly finger sandwiches, a sweet scone, and bubblegum tea made with real bits of bubblegum! Any afternoon tea experience is incomplete without an appreciation for the teas. Fairmont offers teas that are exclusive to the hotel group, working with the Metropolitan Tea Company in Toronto to create specialty tea blends. Oftentimes, teas will be regionally different based on the Fairmont location. The next time you’re enjoying Tea at the Top of Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, try their aromatic Ice Wine Tea, a Sri Lankan black tea blend with hints of white grape and exotic fruits, or White Monkey Paw, a lighter white tea blend from China with a smooth, delicate finish. If you’re looking for a fun occasion to dress up, don’t miss their Sunday Best festivities. Wear your favourite fascinators or bowties to their Sunday afternoon tea for your chance to win the best-dressed award – a complimentary round of bubbly for you and your table. Afternoon tea is offered in two seatings on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday during the winter months, and daily during the summer months.
