I was recently recommended David’s Tea by a friend from work and to quickly summarize, I’m very happy I took her recommendation!
David’s Tea, a Canadian company (thumbs up!), is only about two years old, but seems to be quickly expanding across Canada. I got the chance to visit a David’s Tea store on a recent trip to Edmonton and I wasn’t disspointed one bit! Upon entering the store, I was quickly greeted by a staff member who gave me the low-down:
They are there to help people find their perfect tea and in the perfect amount – whether that be by their preferred taste or for the tea’s general purpose (like helping someone sleep, calm problematic tummies or even transition someone off of their coffee addiction).
It was great to be able to go into the store, have tons of the tea canisters pulled off the shelf, smell the various teas to see if it fits your personal taste and then purchase the ones you like. A big bonus was that you didn’t have to get specific amounts, I walked away with 20g of one tea, 30g of another and then 50g of my last. All the teas are also loose leaf teas – which if your a tea fanatic like myself, you know is the best kind of tea (for those coffee drinkers out there – its like fresh ground verse old grocery store pre-ground beans).
I ended up getting these three different flavors: Bravissimo (a lovely, soothing chamomile tea), Bear Trap (nice and fruity and tastes great as an iced tea) and Mint Chocolate Rooibos (caffeine free and tastes exactly like mint chocolate!!).
You also get the choice of your teas in either a plastic bag which keeps the teas fresh for approx. 6-8 months or a cute tin (free if you buy 100g or $2 if not), that keeps the tea fresh for over 2 years!! Each is then given a little label describing the tea and the measurements you should make it in.
Take a peak at their website, and pop into a store – I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
