Since the declaration of the recession, a lot of people have decided to cut back. However, there are some people that I’ve noticed who refuse to give up their coffee and tea. I’m sure you know the Starbucks junkies. You make a kind suggestion to them to buy the Starbucks brand coffee at the store and brew it themselves just to have what they want while being cost efficient at the same time. Uh huh…yeah… it’s then time to duck and cover. You should’ve of course knew better….it’s just not the same. People are sensitive about the things they feel they absolutely need. Which is ok. I mean, we all have our guilty pleasures. Sadly, the same goes for me with green tea. I appreciate a good cup of green tea. But in my experiences I’ve found that you really can’t cheap out on it. When you go cheap, you don’t get the same flavor or quality…..until now. I was so excited to find out about DAVIDsTEA. They provide a great tea at an extremly affordable price!
DAVIDsTEA was started back in 2008 by David Segal. He started DAVIDsTEA as the solution to the same problem he was finding. The lack of great tea. I’m so glad he did! DAVIDsTEA has 6 stores which are localized around the Toronto and Vancover Canada area. However, us Americans can take advantage of the online store! It’s fab-u-lus that 99 different flavors are available anyone can afford.
As you all know I’m a stickler for the cheap. I was excited to find out that DAVIDsTEA’s are all available for about $0.30 – $0.32 a cup! That is soooo much cheaper than what I was finding at the cafe close to work!
The flavors are oh so yummy too! I mean, just listen to the names: Raspberry Nectar, and Sweet Dreams, Butterfly Jasmine, Dragon Pearls….the list just goes on and on! I was able to review Turkish Delight, Gunpowder Taffy, and Coco Chai Rooibos. Talk about good! At first glance, I loved the packaging the teas came in. Simple but effective zipper bags with DAVIDsTEA printed on them housed these loose tea leaves. I loved how the label with the tea’s flavor on it described the taste you were in for:
A spicy adventure
The Grand Bazaar
Creative huh? Oh and the smell that greets you when you open these bags….heavenly! The tea leaves are high quality and loose which makes for a better flavor.
If you’re an avid tea drinker, I would highly recommend you check out DAVIDsTEAs. If you’ve never tried green teas before, I would highly recommend you check out DAVIDsTEAs. Aside from the great health benefits, these flavored teas will make you glad you did
I received samples of DavidsTea for the sake of completing this review.
Receipt of these did not sway my opinion.
