Weekend Tea: Fruit Teas
Just because a place is called “Weekend Tea” doesn’t mean that you can’t show up on a weekday. That’s exactly what I did when I visited the newish Weekend Tea located on Kingsway in Burnaby. The benefit, of course, is that it’s not busy and you can get a pic with their pleasant wall adorned with greenery.
This place seems to specialize in fruit teas so I ordered the Assorted Fruit ($6.75) which uses a passion fruit tea as the base and then adds a mix of orange, lemon, lime, strawberry, and watermelon slices. It’s not overly sweet and is refreshing on a hot summer day.
On my next visit, I tried their Lychee Fruit Tea ($6.75) which turned out to be my favorite drink here. It’s a bit sweet but I like all of the lychee pieces in the drink.
On a subsequent visit, we ordered the Assorted Fruit again as well as the Golden Kiwi ($6.75 each). I’ll have to admit that the golden kiwi wasn’t that great and I didn’t finish it.
I figured it was about time that I branched out from my regular order here and tried their Zang Mango ($6.50) made with milk and real mango. It’s actually a really odd sensation feeling the pieces of mango as they slide up the straw. You can specify if you want this drink hot or cold and I choose cold. Surprisingly, I did quite enjoy this drink.
Take my advice, don’t wait for the weekend to try out this place.
