I love playing detective, and be on the lookout for new places to eat and drink in Vancouver
This week, I SPY a newly opened TEAshop in Richmond, located in the Empire Centre (the plaza next to Parker Place). Spy Tea is part of China's famous beverage brand, Wu Jian Road • Black Dragon Tea 《烏煎道·黑龍茶》. The first black dragon tea (oolong tea) was established in 2005, but it wasn't until 2011, when the healthy tea shop concept formed, and the first cup of hand-made sea salt cheese and black dragon tea appeared. Soon the tea shop concept materialized into a famous chain in China, which started branching out to Japan, Paris, Milan and now Vancouver. The first Canadian franchise has opened in Richmond!
FUN FACT: If you're Asian, you may recognize the song from this video is from the crime-thriller film "Inferno Affairs 無間道". Why? Because the beverage brand's name in Chinese "烏煎道" sounds very similar to "無間道". This similarity and the fact that "Inferno Affairs" is about spies, became the inspiration for naming the Richmond teashop SPY TEA.
To celebrate Spy Tea's opening in Richmond, I'm partnering with them to give away one of their popular drinks "SUPER FRUIT GREEN TEA" to 15 lucky people.
