High Tea at the Butchart Gardens - Victoria, BC {Babymoon 2.0}

Want to experience high tea while in Victoria, BC?  Shelling out the big bucks to go to the Empress Hotel might be nice but maybe consider saving a little money and still having an amazing experience here!

When we were planning our babymoon to Victoria, one of the things I really wanted to do was experience a real high tea.  Everywhere I looked suggested that we go to the Empress Hotel for this tradition and I was all in and ready to go...  Until we looked up the prices.  We didn't have the biggest budget for this trip and $75 per person was a little steep for us.  I resigned myself to not having high tea since all my Google searches led to no other options.

When we visited the Butchart Gardens I was excited to learn that they served a high tea!  Even better than serving it, using the Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown gave us a super steep discount - we're talking $31 a person!  Although that's more than we'd usually spend for a meal, that felt totally doable in our budget for me to get the experience I was hoping for.  I was so excited!!!

We set up our reservation and headed back to the gardens later in the weekend.  It was such a wonderful meal - full of tasty food, fantastic conversation, and yummy tea!  Nate even tried out some wine pairings that were fantastic with the food served!  We may have been about 30 years younger than any of the other people dining with us but I guess we're just old souls.

I love that my marriage is full of give and takes.  It was so special to me that Nate willingly spent the afternoon sipping tea and eating cucumber sandwiches the day after I willingly spent the afternoon touring a brewery with him.  All the heart eyes for the man I love!
