Of course, if you’re visiting Victoria the classic afternoon tea that everyone says you have to do is at the Fairmont Empress, so we obviously did that.

Honestly, it was nice but I’ll cut to the chase and say that of the three places we visited for tea in Victoria (and surrounding area) I thought it was the most disappointing overall for what was the highest price tag. Like, by a lot. Tea was good and food was fine, and the piano playing in the background did add to the ambience but the stricter dress code felt restrictive (and classist, a bit) and the service was almost uncomfortably professional. Plus, the seating was more cramped together with just less aesthetically pleasing surroundings. Not a bad time, but we for sure experienced better times.

This was the tea my mom picked for herself, but obviously I had a cup too. It was very, very similar to the one she’d had the day prior at Butchart Gardens – just lemon instead of bergamot. Basically swapping citruses. Still, nicely balanced and a kind of summery take on the more classic flavours offered on their tea menu. What can I say, my mom clearly has a ‘type’ when it comes to the teas she goes for. As we all do, I suppose.
