Show Notes

In this episode we chat with local business owner and tea ninja Pedro Villalon on starting a now thriving business in the heart of Kitsilano. 

Pedro is the co-founder of O5 Rare Tea Bar, a staple in the Vancouver landscape with their excellent selection of small batch teas. It’s a place where you can go to learn a heck of a lot about the history of tea, take komboucha making classes or just have a great chat with a fun tea bartender in a beautiful atmosphere. 

Pedro shares the story of the origins of O5 and how he came to love the culture of tea and the countries that produce it. This guy was super knowledgeable and dropped some serious, serious fun facts.

Jamie had fun time learning the ins and out of this vast universe, which oddly enough relates very closely to one of his favourite worlds, wait for it….wine. 

Mick already knew some stuff as he’s a legit tea snob. Enjoy!
