Meet the owner

Pedro Villalon, owner of O5 Rare Tea and Kombucha Bar, has one wish: for the people of Vancouver to appreciate tea the way they would wine or coffee. He sees his fellow citizens taking a tea with them on the way to work, but it’s in a Styrofoam cup with a paper lid, and he believes that’s one of the worst ways to enjoy tea. He feels that a fine beverage like wine would never be enjoyed like that, so why should tea?

“Starting O5 came out of a need to have people experience tea like they usually don’t,” explains Pedro of why he started the tea and kombucha bar in 2012. He believes that tea should be savoured and enjoyed. "That’s how we would like people to experience tea – the concepts of harvest and simply taking 10 to 15 minutes to enjoy a cup.”

If this sounds more like an after-work cocktail or craft beer bar to you, that’s because Pedro has intentionally designed it that way. He wants O5 Rare Tea and Kombucha Bar to be a place where you drop in after work, travel all over the world and select a tea that you really take the time to savour. He’s even installed a kombucha draught that works much the same way as having beer on tap, only instead of barley, hops and malt, you get a fermented tea beverage that’s always ready to serve. At O5, Pedro’s kombucha is brewed in micro batches for constant freshness and contains only one source of glucose, either organic sugar or honey.

    At this high-concept tea bar in Kitsilano, “tea hunter” Pedro Villalon is on a mission to educate Vancouverites about tea culture. From the obsessive sourcing of unique teas to how they’re steeped to even how they’re consumed (best on the floor, as is traditional in Asia), the entire ritual of tea drinking is not taken lightly here. Choose from their tightly curated selection of loose leaf teas as well as some beautiful tea ware. The whole thing is a heightened experience.
