Nothing says spring quite like a special afternoon tea experience, and thankfully, that’s exactly what Vancouver is getting. And although it will be a while before the weather catches up, we’re turning our focus to the upcoming season, in all its cherry blossom-clad glory.

Speaking of, Notch8 at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is introducing a new cherry blossom-themed afternoon tea service, complete with specialty cocktails, spring-inspired decor, and a plethora of themed treats to enjoy. The best part? You won’t have to wait for the official start of the season to enjoy the experience.
