This little shop conveniently located at the River Market and offers great choice of various teas. The way they store tea in cans on the wall is absolutely amazing. Staff is very friendly, prices are moderate and tea itself is delicious. Certainly do recommend.

I love teas. I love a place that has huge containers of tea they pluck from a wall, which they let you smell before either brewing you a cup or filling up a bag of loose tea for you to enjoy later. Each container is filled with different white, green, herbal, rooibus, and pu-erh teas. Some flavored, some not. Their seasonal special teas are worth considering. I loved their dark chocolate peppermint pu-erh tea. Unfortunately, they had just run out to make a full cup, but the owner was kind enough to give me what left over tea they had in a tea bag so I may enjoy it at home as service. What service it was when I enjoyed it the next day! Minty, yet smooth. If they have some in stock, grab as much as possible!

Great Wall Tea Company is a tea lover's dream come true. The staff are extremely friendly and confident in their knowledge of tea. If you need help deciding, let them recommend something you'll most likely fall in love with. It might be wise to buy some loose teas before you depart. That's what my daughter and I did during out visit to Vancouver. We bought many bags of tea so we may enjoy them over the winter months.

Great Wall Tea Company, located inside River Market, which is a quick walk from New Westminster Sky Train. They have a counter, where you may drink your hot or iced tea. If the counter is full, then there are plenty of tables in River Market or go for a walk outside, if it's not raining outside. There are plenty of washrooms inside River Market as well as plenty of food choices.

Many amazing varieties of loose tea. Highly recommend Oragnic Watermark, Organic detox blend, organic green and Jasmine. If you just want a cup or a tea latte they are also very accommodating and very friendly. This is a wonderful part of the Nieghbourhood.

Found this by accident and what a find! So many choices but finally got a few to start with. Also got their card so will be able to get re-fills mailed to home. All the loose tea comes in a resealable recyclable bag. Love this store wish you were closer!
