Prettily situated on an almost circular bay at the southern end of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Victoria is a small and walkable city with a very large list of tea-infused offerings. Varied afternoon and high teas, tea cafés and shops, tea-influenced spa treatments, a tea festival, and unique dining and accommodations options are all seemingly created for a tea lover’s visit. Here are some of the places you won't want to miss.
