Teashop + Gallery Open

Over the past year, the Westholme Tearoom has been re-imagined and re-arranged. 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 our Teashop to explore our diverse offerings of Teas of the World, our 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 past Tearoom experiences to your own homes, backyards, and even the backcountry through our curated giftsets, teaware, ceramics, books, and of course our teas + tisanes.

You can order through our Online Store, or by calling 250.748.3811.

As always, we invite you to visit our Teashop + Gallery. We are open Wednesday to Sunday 11am-4pm

Canadian Grown Tea

With return of the morning mists to the Westholme Valley, the harvest season for tea has halted. The tea plants have settled in for winter.

Westholme is the first commercial organic tea (the Camellia sinensis) grower 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 tradition come together in our collection of home-grown teas from the Cowichan Valley.

We still have limited quantities of Quail's Plume and Maple Smoked Green.

Experience our 2021 Harvest.

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 blended by hand 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. The pure teas we import are the finest we can find. 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.
