Tea Club

About us:
University life can be hard sometimes’s – that’s where we come in. Tea Club is the de-stressor club of Western! We aim to provide a cozy atmosphere, where students can relax as they grab a cup of tea. Our information sessions are where members can learn how to brew a perfect cup of tea, different varieties of tea, and more! Not only do members meet new friends throughout the year, but they also develop a greater appreciation for tea. Additionally, Tea Club has a long partnership with many London tea shops in order to bring members a piece of local tea culture at discounted prices.Typically we hold frequent events during the year. There are many chances for students to socialise such as the annual Tea Party, field trips, guest speaker conferences, game/movie nights, study sessions, tutorials, and cross-club collaborations. Whereas last year these all took place online through Zoom, social media, and our Discord server, we hope to safely see some of you on campus this year’s super chill and full of great people; now is the time for tea!
