This tea is almost sold out - small amounts are available on a first come first serve basis at our Victoria & Vancouver shops while quantities last. You will need to come by in person to purchase- it is not available for Store Pickup, as the supply may run out very quickly.
The reason it is sold out is that some of the key ingredients have been impacted by climate change. As a result, this item may be sold out for an extended period - it may not be available until the spring or longer.
Have you discovered MYSTIC RAINFOREST TEA & WILDBERRY WAVE TEA? Both of these berry infused tea blends have become fan favourites & contain some similar ingredients as the BERRY VICTORIA, so you're likely to fall in love with one or both of these teas!
BERRIES & CREAM SLUSHIE: pour 1 cup boiling water over 3 tbsp. Berry Victoria tea. Steep 5 min & strain. Combine tea with 3 cups ice & 1 cup soy, almond or coconut milk. Place in blender. Set to high until well combined. Makes approx. 1 litre.
COASTAL BERRY PUNCH: mix equal parts chilled Berry Victoria Tea & cranberry juice. Optional: add 2oz of your favourite spirit (gin, vodka, tequila or rum) to every cup. Serve in tall tumblers over plenty of ice. Garnish with local berries & fresh mint.
Pour 2 cups of water over 1 tsp. of SILK ROAD premium quality, organic loose tea. This may not seem like a lot of tea but SILK ROAD teas are incredibly fresh & flavourful, which means that you don’t need very much in order to produce a delicious cup of tea. Using any more tea leaves can result in a cup of tea that is too strong.

Loose teas are sold in refillable tins to preserve the tea’s superb flavour, freshness and nutrients. Normally, we encourage you to bring your empty tins into our shops to refill. However, this is currently on pause due to COVID-19. We’re delighted to offer another eco-friendly, low-waste way to re-use your tins!
Brown bag refills are available when you purchase tea in-store and online. Simply select “refill” to receive your tea in a brown bag refill. Immediately transfer the tea to the original tin it came in, once the brown bag refill is home or has arrived in the mail. Brown bags are 100% recyclable, compostable, biodegradable and made of post-consumer recycled paper.
CAN I STORE TEA IN THE BROWN BAG REFILL? No, it is a short term method for transport only and is not suitable for storing. It will not maintain tea’s freshness, nutrients and flavour. It does not protect against exposure to air, liquid or moisture. Air exposure causes nutrient & flavour loss; liquid/moisture causes tea to mildew. As soon as you get home from the shop, or when it arrives in the mail, transfer tea immediately into Silk Road tins - they are designed to preserve the tea.
ABOUT TEA SIZES Refer to the above chart - our loose teas are sold by volume, not weight.
