Travelling back to Vancouver we stopped at Chercher la Vache, now one of our favourite spots to eat in Field, BC. The mountain sunshine took us to their patio, where I had a lovely cup of Earl Grey tea, with floral qualities that were outstanding.
Food was good too, but the tea was such a treat. Travelling on the highway often means there isn’t good tea to be had, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Mighty Leaf has made inroads to many of the roadside cafes, and even at a fastfood restaurant in Hope there was a great selection for takeout. This tea wasn’t theirs, however, and I regret I didn’t ask what it was.
Tea culture has definitely surpassed the days of Red Rose and Salada! How uplifting to be able to stop and sip a truly delicious cup of fine tea.
As you can see in this photo, my tea came in a ceramic pot with an infuser insert for the leaves. Now wouldn’t it be perfect if there could be cups provided that were just for tea alone – something just a little finer than the standard coffee mug? Now that would be heaven-plus!
And I do also recommend the food at Chercher la Vache! Excellent. Go to their site, you’ll see a great photo of the place!
