David’s Tea…This isn’t your grandmas tea shop

by Destini on March 10, 2011

I am currently getting over the stomach flu, so I am writing this blog from my bed of sickness. Feeling pretty under the weather, I have been drinking lots of fluids. One I am currently enjoying is some tea I purchased this past weekend. A co-worker of mine recently introduced me to this new shop we have in our local mall called David’s Tea. It’s a specialty tea store that specializes in loose leaf tea. They offer a HUGE range of teas from tea with coffee beans in it, to tea that can help with colds and sore throats.

Tea from a healthy standpoint has many benefits; studies have shown that tea can help against cancer, weight maintenance and even bad breath! It is the most widely consumed beverage in the world after water.

Being a tea lover, I was very excited to try this new place.

The store is simple and clean. I loved the look and feel. The staff was soo knowledgeable and very friendly. I couldn’t make up my mind on what kind or type of tea I wanted. With the help of the woman working there, I was able to narrow it down to two. However they have TONS of kinds, and she knew about the contents of each and how good they were.

I end up deciding on two black teas

Read My Lips – China black tea, vanilla, peppermint, chocolate bits and spicy red peppercorns. Plus it also has little red candy lips.

Read My Lips

Three Wishes Tea – Chinese green tea, black tea from India, Ceylon and China, sunflowers, jasmine, rose blossoms and natural flavoring.

Three Wishes Tea

For a 50g bag it was $6.50. It is a bit more expensive then something you would get at a local grocery store, but clearly you’re paying for something different.

I also purchased t-sac tea filters for brewing my tea, 100 for $7.00. It works better then a mesh teaball as it doesn’t let tea get loose into the water.

According to the instructions on the tea packets, I put 1.5tsp per cup of 94c water for 4-5min. I didn’t add any sweetener or milk/cream. Both teas were absolutely amazing.

When researching this blog I also noticed they also offer a wine collection of teas. I am going back this weekend and purchasing the Cabernet Sauvignon. I can’t wait to try it!!

Pinkies up everyone!

Ooh a wine collection of teas!? That sounds right up my alley!

I really wanted to get the Read My Lips but I'm allergic to most things with red food colouring so I was worried about the red candy lips. It smelled amazing though!

I'm brewing up a cup of Zing Me Tea right now. Being a girl who always took her coffee with cream and sugar, I love that I don't need to add anything to these teas to make them delicious. Thanks for stopping by my blog. So nice to find another blogger from Manitboa! xo
