Canada’s Most Beautiful Tea Store – Wine Access Magazine Canada’s Best Organic Spa – Glow Magazine Best Tea Purveyor – Victoria & Vancouver EAT Magazine Awards Critic’s Pick, Best Tea – Victoria Times-Colonist
Since 1992 we’ve been creating the world’s finest, freshest, organic teas, skin and body products. It all started in Victoria’s Historic Chinatown, with a passion for premium quality ingredients, exceptional customer service, an eco-friendly approach, and a commitment to community – values which continue to be just as important to us today as they were when we started.
Our award-winning teas are made with premium quality, fresh, organic botanicals. Exceptional freshness, combined with organic growing practices, results in higher antioxidant levels and superior flavour in your teacup. What’s just as important as the premium quality ingredients we select for our teas, are the ingredients we never use – no artificial flavours, colours or hidden sweeteners- just pure, healthy, deliciousness in every sip!
SILK ROAD is led by our Chief Tea Ambassador and founder, Daniela Cubelic. Hailed as “Canada’s Queen of Tea” (Globe & Mail), and “Canada’s Tea Master” (Vancouver Sun), she is a leading authority on tea and tea culture, and an accomplished Tea Master, who was trained by Chinese and Taiwanese herbalists and tea masters. Daniela has been featured locally, nationally and internationally in numerous magazines, publications, and on radio and television. Recently, she helped design a revolutionary new teacup that won a coveted Red Dot design award. In addition to creating our exquisite tea blends, she also oversees the development of our popular skin and bodycare products, and studied aromatherapy in France. Daniela’s love for tea and tea culture is steeped in her veins, and while she is trained in tea’s most ancient traditions, she is equally likely to be found forging new frontiers in tea- from cooking with tea, tea and food pairing, and creating tea cocktails, tea popsicles and tea slushies, to incorporating tea into our skin and bodycare products.
SILK ROAD is your one stop wellness destination – both inside and out. Whether you’re visiting us online, at our original Chinatown shop, the Victoria Public Market location or at our Vancouver shop (2066 West 4th Ave in Kitsilano) in person, we look forward to sharing tea and tranquilli-tea with you!
