Westholme Tea Farm: This is one of my favourite places to go - located between Chemainus and Duncan - you need a car. It is a 40 minute drive from Century Kee. Try the Tea of the day and look at the beautiful pottery created by Margit Newmann. Garden in the summer is gorgeous. In the winter - sit inside by the cozy woodstove. all their treats are made with tea... sweet and savory. This is a perfect place to go solo - take a book or a journal and spend an hour or two. My favourite tea is Black Lavendar.
