This isn’t your granny’s tea party

The Vikings ParTEA with Silk Road is an event foodies and drink connoisseurs won’t want to miss

Just as the Royal B.C. Museum’s Vikings: Lives Beyond the Legends exhibition slays the myth of the Viking barbarian, Silk Road’s tea mixing master Daniela Cubelic and acclaimed mixologist and Little Jumbo proprietor Shawn Soole are taking everything you know about teas and turning it upside down.

Set in the museum’s Clifford Carl Hall after hours, the Vikings ParTEA with Silk Road is an event foodies and drink connoisseurs won’t want to miss.

Mixologists will treat guests to tea-infused cocktails made from one of four unique recipes specially created for the event and inspired by Nordic traditions.

Better yet, the cocktails will have local flavour provided by Silk Road’s special Royal B.C. Museum tea blend and liquors from Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub, Victoria Spirits and Tugwell Creek Farm and Meadery.

In addition, the Viking-themed event will have delectable canapés from Truffles Catering and live demonstrations by Cubelic and Soole.

“I’m excited to bring these local partners together and am grateful for their support as we try something completely new here at the Royal B.C. Museum and create this one-of-a-kind tea party experience,” says Kathryn Swanson,  Royal B.C. Museum membership and marketing co-ordinator.

“Guests will learn all about some truly inventive and original drink ideas while having a ton of fun.”

Tickets to the event include canapés and a featured cocktail. A cash bar will be available for additional drink purchases.

The Vikings ParTEA with Silk Road is Thursday (Sept. 25) from 7 to 10 pm. Tickets are $55 per person.
