Obsessively Sourced.

Carrying tea leaves dating back to the early 1900’s to freshly harvested growths from the mountains of Nepal, O5 offers what no other tea store does. As Hadani Ditmars writes for Wallpaper Magazine, “While tea has been the new coffee for a few years now, at Vancouver’s O5Tea bar, it’s the new cocktail. Here patrons can perch on high stools and sip rare brews with tinctures at a Christian Woo-designed bar made of torched and oiled re-claimed Douglas fir. In a West Coast infused ode to Zen modernism – complete with ambient lighting by Molo Design, black stained pine walls and polished concrete floors – patrons can enjoy a variety of naturally sourced terroir based teas, which are almost as international as the Mexican/Japanese/Canadian/Russian team that runs the place. Come for a late night sip, and you may even get to brew chai yourself from the other side of the bar.”.
