Garden tea party at The Silver Birch Tearoom

The Silver Birch Tearoom (located in Aylmer at Heritage Line Herbs) is not like any tea room I’ve ever been to. But for me it’s actually a tea garden and a magical one at that.

Carol was friendly and got us a great table beside the waterfall. It was amazing to see all the tables immersed in the giant gardens surrender by a waterfall leading into a pond. Such a tranquil and pleasant location for afternoon tea.

They have an amazing array of 130 loose leaf teas. Carol recommend the Rooibos: Stovetop apple cinnamon and it really did taste just as good as it smelled; tart, sweet and warming.

We had preordered their supreme high tea, and the owner herself Deb, explained the many goodies so beautifully on display. Everything was very good, fresh and flavourful but my most favourite was the chicken sandwiches. As well as the Squamish squares, which is Deb’s mom’s invention!

Whether you are waiting for your table or walking off your meal, the many fairy gardens are a wonderful and peaceful walk, it is also meditative. I love the pizza garden, growing all the ingredients needed for a pizza.

It’s so worth the drive to Aylmer to experience this wonderful unique afternoon tea immersed in nature. Also be sure to check out all their lovely herbs and store as well.

About Marsha Idella

It's my Edible Journey! I love food. I love love love chef tastings. Eating out inspires my home cooking. I’m passionate about sharing the foods I’ve tasted – made by someone else or me. I love sharing my journey through food, advising where to eat and what to eat. Sometimes it’s a homemade meal, a nearby restaurant, a culinary vacation or a food themed event. I love sharing food photos and their descriptions just as much as eating, but I also need to archive my foodie photos and recommendations thus far so that I don’t forget where I’ve been. Sometimes it is about eating the same thing twice – especially when you want to share that experience with someone or just relive it. “This is amazing, you gotta eat this”
