TEA OF THE MONTH

Jia Ji

The aroma of this Shou Pu-erh is warm like a fresh-baked, leavened loaf. The taste is of
mild mushrooms and fresh humus earth after a rain storm. There is a surprising sweetness to the earthy finish. The tea steeps to a completely opaque, dark rich espresso colour. There is no astringency even during
long steep times - just stronger.

Sipping with the Seasons

Spring Wellness Set

We are pleased to share our favourite teas + tisanes to support wellness through the Spring season. All around us nature has been gathering energy, preparing to push new grass through snow and mud, burst new branches from old wood, and release leaves from tightly held buds. We selected steeps that have attributes specifically complimentary to emerging from winter slumber and stagnancy, to inspire re-birth and new growth.

Teashop + Gallery Open

Over the years, Westholme Tea Company has been continuously re-imagined and re-arranged...from dairy barn to Teashop + Gallery and everything inbetween.

Although we are not resuming Tearoom service, our Teashop + Gallery is here to serve in new ways.

Our endeavor has always been to connect people with high quality tea experiences. We are thrilled to have created more space to dedicate ourselves to this endeavour.

We welcome you to visit and explore our diverse offerings of Teas of the World, unique artisanal Westholme Blends, and how we grow the love of tea through our Canadian Tea Garden.

We aim to make excellent tea experiences more accessible, everyday. We are excited to provide a way to bring the experience of the Tearoom to your own homes, backyards, and even the backcountry through our curated giftsets, teaware, ceramics, books, and of course our teas + tisanes.

Canadian Grown Tea

Westholme is the first commercial organic grower of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) in Canada.

The distinct character – terroir – of our organically grown tea is shaped by the environmental elements of Westholme, in the heart of BC's Cowichan Valley.

More than 10 years of seasonal cycles have developed our Westholme tea garden. Tea making innovation and old-world traditions come together in our collection of home-grown teas from the Cowichan Valley.

The tea plants have been slowly waking up from their winter slumber, in their own perfect timing. We are now harvesting our first flush of Tree Frog Green and White Mist.

Although producing our own tea is a small portion of what we do at Westholme Tea, our relationship with the the tea plant reaches out beyond the garden and informs much of how we work within the tea industry.

We are now welcoming guests to the Tea Garden for the 2022 Tour Season. All tours must be pre-booked. Read all the details here.

Unique Imported Tea + Tisane Blends

Westholme offers a wide and ever expanding variety of artisanal, organic tea and tisane blends. All recipes for these blends are created by co-owner Margit Nellemann, and are carefully hand blended in-house.

The teas we use in these blends are carefully sourced from small-scale organic tea farms and estates worldwide. Since Westholme's beginning, we have worked to build long-lasting and reliable relationships with professional tea connoisseurs, sourcers, and tea estates around the world. These fine, flavourful teas are then blended with organic herbs, spices and zests to create something new.

We know it can be difficult to find pure and honest teas and tisanes. That is why we never use any synthetic or artificial flavourings in our teas. No 'natural' unmarked additives, colourants, perfumes or sweeteners will ever be found in any of our teas. We believe in creating recipes to showcase what nature has to offer. Read more about what we mean when we say 'pure' here.
