I love getting absorbed and lost in art galleries around town and White Rabbit is one of my absolute favourites. It always brings controversial and thought provoking pieces of contemporary Chinese art to the scene, and recently introduced dumplings to their tea house. Before every wander around, a pot of warm, beautiful tea and sunshine by the window is a definite must!
The tea house is on the right of the entrance, and it’s gorgeous. White sky high ceilings hang the mismatching bronze and wooden bird cages, while sunshine floods through the large floor to roof windows. The wooden tables are all dressed elegantly with oriental red drapes and china teapots to match.
The tea collection is quite extensive from the usual blends to some amazingly pretty choices. Teas slowly blossom as the afternoon progresses, pretty rose petals and chrysanthemum flowers. And all the fun is in smelling the selection before choosing.
White Rabbit recently introduced homemade dumplings to nibble on in the tea house, and they’re deliciously soft and juicy. There are also selections of asian snacks from rice crackers, dried fruits and nuts.
But hurry! The Decade of the Rabbit is currently on until July 31st and the gallery re-opens on August 25th with a new exhibit.
