Our eldest daughter May-N took us to Vancouver Island when we were visiting her in Vancouver, on this spectacular and beautiful island we were introduced to the classical English High Tea.
Actually High Tea is a misnomer, most people refer to afternoon tea as high tea because it sounds more regal! High tea to the English is actually dinner. Do visits the link on English High Tea, it is fascinating!
The stunning waterfront city of Victoria is the vacation capital of Canada, it attract over six million visitors yearly!
Vancouver Island have one of the best afternoon tea house in the world! White Heather Tea Room is well known for the freshness of their sandwiches and savouries, their intimate setting and their wonderful selection of teas. To the Poms, to die for ;)

Two weeks ago Ming-N discovered that there is a very nice tea house right here in Wellington!
Martha's Pantry is at the top of Cuba Street (No.276) in Wellington, we were there this afternoon and we were not disappointed!
There are eight tables at Martha's Pantry and judging by the crowd, booking is advised.
So if you are in Wellington, take a nice stroll up Cuba Street and enjoy some nice tea and snacks at Martha's Pantry!
