I’m resurrecting this post (4 Jan 2014) with an update on afternoon tea at Neverland Tea Salon. I had afternoon tea (I refuse to call it High Tea) at Neverland Tea Salon last November with my friend. Four years ago, … Continue reading
It’s the first Sunday post-Once Upon A Time S5, so I would like to cheer up my fellow international OUAT-fans with another OUAT destination to visit if they’re ever in Vancouver, British Columbia: Fort Langley. In my World of OUAT … Continue reading
With two days to go until Once Upon a Time S5 premieres, I’d like to introduce my fellow Oncers to the period dramas in which some of our recurring, former, and new cast members have been or will be. The … Continue reading

On New Year’s Eve 2013, I visited Neverland Tea Salon with my friend, who is also a Oncer fan.
Neverland is a new English-inspired tea salon in Kitsilano with a Peter Pan (by J.M. Barrie) theme. It has its own tea selection, many of which bore Peter Pan-inspired names. I did not get the chance to smell each caddy, though I would have liked to. I settled for ‘Take Me To Neverland’ tea latte, which tasted similar to London Fog.
This was a rather small tea salon, much like La Petite Cuillère, but very popular. I would recommend reserving a table in advance. Since I did not have the chance to try their afternoon tea ($30 for ‘High Tea’), I can’t really recommend anything specific. I had a breakfast sandwich (with green salad) from their Brunch Menu, which was good but I felt the price was a bit more than I would have liked to spend. I’d initially though it was soup and sandwich but I ended up with salad instead of soup. The average item starts from $11+. Aside from tea, Neverland also has a Lost Boys’ Bar with tea-infused cocktails (looks like Urban Tea Merchant isn’t the only one anymore!), as well as beer and wine.
This is a cute place to take your little ones to or to enjoy some tea with your friends. I hope there will be more like it for it’s always nice to be transferred to another world. 🙂
