Tea time in the Outaouais region
Fall is cocooning season! In the comfort of your living room or at one of the region’s tea rooms, sit back and unwind with a nice hot cup of tea. Here are three places in the Outaouais region where you can do just that!
Cha Yi Tea House
The Cha Yi Tea House in downtown Gatineau is a must-go destination for tea lovers. As you enter the shop, you’ll be impressed by the huge wall of loose teas and herbal teas in bulk. You’re sure to find something there to warm the cockles of your heart! Twice a year, the owners travel to Asia to stock up on new and unique products for their clients. Interested in learning more about tea? Sign up for one of the tea tastings and workshops coming up in the next few weeks!
Coronation Hall Cider Mills
Nestled in the heart of the Pontiac, Coronation Hall Cider Mills features a cosy tea room as well as a cider tasting room and gift shop. Specializing in fresh apple products, it’s one of the Outaouais region’s best-kept secrets! Be sure to include it on your itinerary next time you’re out and about in the western part of the region. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll have to try their home-made apple treats. And don’t forget to take home a bottle of cider or a jug of fresh-pressed apple juice.
George Bryson Heritage House
Did you know that the impressive George Bryson Heritage House, one of Quebec’s classified historic buildings, is located across from the longest covered bridge still in use in Quebec? And that inside the house you will find an elegant tea room? Travel back in time to the 19th century, and enjoy a cup of tea served in a dainty china cup worthy of the finest English tea room.
