A little over a year ago Mike and I were taking a stroll up Southport with our chocolate lab, Ruby, when we came across the newly opened DAVIDsTEA. I told Mike I wanted to pop in really quickly to grab a cup of tea so he and Ruby hung out on the bench outside. Fast forward 30 minutes and I’m still inside, smelling the 10 different teas that the lovely woman working behind the counter set out for me, and ogling all the super cute tea cups and accessories lining the walls. After a “what the heck are you doing in there” text I wrapped up my visit, but I knew that I was officially hooked on tea and would definitely be back for more!
Since this first visit I’ve been back to DAVIDsTEA many times, both for myself and to buy gifts for others. Their extensive wall of teas can be a bit intimidating at first glance, but all the staff are super friendly and will help you find the perfect tea. DAVIDsTEA always has great gift sets that are beautifully packaged and cute mugs to go along with the season, so it’s really a no-brainer gift option if you know someone who enjoys tea. Some of my favorites are Cream of Earl Grey, The Spice Is Right, Cold 911, and Mother’s Little Helper, but every time I stop in I seem to find a new favorite!
Last month DAVIDsTEA released The Spring Collection – five fresh and exotic teas that are fruity, refreshing, and amazing hot or cold! I’m partial to the Cool Cucumber black tea and the Blue Lagoon herbal tea, but I’d be happy sipping any one of them!
