I can’t believe just how fas the year is flying by. It’s already time for the DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar, 2017 version. Every year I pick one up and this year is no different. There is never any question or debate; this advent calendar is my #1 holiday must have. Filled with 24 different teas to try out each day, it is the perfect gift for any tea lover.
As much as I love DAVIDsTEA, I often forget that every month they have a Tea of the Month. Maybe it’s because I don’t usually make it into the store at the beginning of the month when the Tea of the Month is usually being promoted. But not this time; this time I managed to be in-store right at the beginning of the month and had the opportunity to sample the latest offering for March 2017; DAVIDsTEA Lemon Pound Cake Oolong Tea, and I’ve been drinking it ever since.
Welcome to Day 5 of the DAVIDsTEA #24DaysofTea event. Now I wasn’t sure what to expect when I opened up the advent calendar and discovered the DAVIDsTEA Coffee Cake Tea. I’m not a huge fan of coffee or cake, so while I do love black tea, I wasn’t sure how this was all going to mesh together. Well first off, I got a coupon for $5 off my next purchase so that is working out well so far. But then I went ahead and cracked this one open and good lord does the DAVIDsTEA Coffee Cake Tea ever smell like the greatest thing ever. It smells so good that people at work can usually track my location and route through the office just by scent alone. View Post
DAVIDsTEA Organic Serenity Now tea is a “soothing blend of lavender, strawberry and hibiscus” caffeine free herbal tea. Beyond making me want to scream SERENITY NOW at the top of my lungs, a la Seinfeld, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one. I mean it smells divine, but very fruity, which I don’t normally like all that much. At least not in a hot tea. But I’m willing to try anything once so I kind of just dove right in… View Post
DAVIDsTEA Genmaicha Tea is a traditional green tea blend that combines sencha with roasted rice. Apparently it is called “popcorn tea” because it contains whole roasted grains of brown rice, some of which have popped. You can actually smell the popcorn when you brew this tea, so the nickname really does fit. I can see why it would be popular with a lot of people because it is a rather mild tea. I think this tea would be great for someone who is new to tea. View Post
