The White Heather Tea Room in Victoria BC

by hwilde on February 13, 2013

What could be more ‘Victorian’ than visiting a tearoom?  Very little, I say!  Victoria BC is steeped (pun intended) in British tradition and there are several establishments serving an authentic tea service.  Tourists and people who are living in Victoria, me included, love to stop for a cuppa and delicious fresh-made goodies at the White Heather Tea Room, where you can enjoy a truly proper afternoon tea.

The atmosphere at the White Heather is not at all stuffy, but warmly welcoming and the staff are genuinely enthusiastic about the teas and victuals they are serving.  The selection of tea is excellent and if you are unsure about what you would like your server is quite capable and happy to describe the different blends.

The food is absolutely amazing, with traditional tea sandwiches, scones and fresh baked goods just as delicious as you would expect.  They make it all in-house, including the preserves and pride themselves on the quality they offer their guests.  Try the Big Muckle Tea for Two – I’ll bet you will be taking some of it home, the portions are VERY generous!

If you are moving to Victoria, already living here or just visiting, make sure you check out the White Heather Tea Room for a taste of Victorian tradition.


Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
