Fashion is my cup of tea

There are days that just scream "Shoppiiiiiiing!!!"! Head to Gatineau when that happens! Come on, treat yourself; you deserve it! There's a recently renovated mall where you're sure to find that something your wardrobe was missing and a shop that sells over 150 kinds of teas. There are many unique addresses to investigate and several places to stop for a bite or a drink between two shopping sessions.
If your idea of tea is that generic pouch your grandma would boil to drink with her biscuits in the afternoon, CHA YI Tea House will definitely change your mind. They will make you discover the flavours and benefits of this incredible drink. End your day before a great wood oven pizza or a succulent salad and a good glass of wine at Piz'za-za and you will truly have had a beautiful day.
