TEA OF THE MONTH

Osmanthus Oolong

A delightful + traditional Oolong.
Aroma of Osmanthus flowers perfectly complement the lightly roasted Oolong tea leaves. The flavours of a typical Ti Kwan Yin bursts forth: bright, lush, floral, fruity, and delicate, paired with a deeper sense of toasty floral nectar sweetness. The first steep is rich with the gentle Osmanthus. Hints of pear and a slight dusting of cocoa play through the steep.

Teashop + Gallery Open

Over the years, Westholme 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 explore our diverse offerings. We aim to make excellent tea experiences more accessible, everyday. We 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.

Twelve 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 are slowly settling into their autumn flowering phase.

We are 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 and carefully hand blended in-house.

The teas we use in these blends are carefully sourced from small-scale organic tea growers. Since Westholme's beginning, we have worked to build long-lasting and reliable relationships with professional tea connoisseurs, sourcers, and tea estates. 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.
