Notch 8 Canada 150 Afternoon High Tea | FAIRMONT Hotel Vancouver

Notch 8 Canada 150 Afternoon Tea Fairmont Hotel Vancouver Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

In celebration of Canada’s Jubilee Anniversary, Notch 8 Restaurant and Bar, invites you to their Canada 150 Afternoon Tea. In honour of the true North strong and free, the private dining room is adored with vintage photographs of Fairmont Hotels across the country and archival images of Canadian Pacific locomotives. History aside, the Canada 150 Afternoon Tea takes you from the green copper roofs, chateau style architecture, grand ballrooms and storied pasts to a culinary journey from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Indulge in delicious Saskatoon berry compote, delectable and distinctively Canadian tea sandwiches including Montreal Smoked Meat and Lobster Rolls, and in-house baked sweets.

To begin, guests select their preferred choice of Fairmont fine tea blend. My favorite continues to be the Fairmont Earl Grey and the 1907 Centennial Blend of kenmare, malty assam and a touch of earl grey. If you prefer to add a little bourbon, we highly recommend the Maple Leaf Cocktail – a cocktail made with Maple Maple (black tea with notes of caramel), Canadian bourbom, maple syrup, lime and apple.

 

The Canadian journey begins with Maple Panna Cotta, Wild Berry and Oka Scone Saskatoon served with berry compote and birch syrup Chantilly.

Like previous Notch 8 themed afternoon tea sets (ie. Old World Carnival, Brothers Grimm), this wooden canoe is super cute set the tone for a cross-country adventure.

Fairmont Hotel Vancouver History Tidbit:

Canadian Pacific Railway opened this Hotel Vancouver in 1888. The second build was in 1916. The present Hotel Vancouver first opened its doors in 1939, on the eve of the Royal visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The hotel was built in a grand Italianate revival style, and was considered one of the great hotels of the British Empire. A meeting place for Vancouver society.
