Last fall when my small-town girl self went to Toronto (it was a Beverly Hillbillies moment, though I was dressed better!) there were a few places I really wanted to visit. A couple of them were boutique clothing stores some friends had recommended. The other? DAVIDsTEA My friends have been raving about DAVIDsTEA for quite some time so I couldn’t wait to try it out and see what all the fuss was about!
I loved it! The best way to describe DAVIDsTEA is that you get all of the decadent flavour of your favourite goodies, but without the calories. And, given the fact that I can’t indulge in all of the high calorie treats, it really is an amazing replacement!
After trying DAVIDsTEA last fall, the best Valentine I received this year was DAVIDsTEA’s The Chocolate Box . This decadent collection of teas arrived in a beautiful box (I love it so much I’ve actually been using it as a storage box in the kitchen – and it still smells great!) which contained a collection of 6 teas – each a metal tin – with a variety of sweet flavours! From Chocolate Orange and Mint Chocolate Rooibos to Red Velvet Cake, there were a variety of flavours to indulge my desire for sweets!
If I had to pick a favourite, it would be really to choose because each one evoked the essence of my favourite desserts (Red Velvet Cake is actually the Flavour of the Month for February!). I thought that the Chocolate Rocket was incredibly good — the combined flavours of chocolate, raspberries and almonds really packs a punch! I also enjoyed the Chocolate Orange (how could I not? It’s chocolate and orange for heaven’s sake!).
I’m still relishing the last of my DAVIDsTEA Chocolate Box and I’ve already been checking out their site (I’d say I was stalking it but that just sounds so ominous!) to try and figure out what I’m going to order — I love that even though I don’t live in the same city as a DAVIDsTEA store, I can still order online! I’ve been eyeballing some amazing-sounding teas (Jolly Jellybean sounds good, but so does Sweet Strawberry…and Banana Oolong…and Birthday Cake — oh no! At least there is free shipping for orders over $50 and they’ll even send me 3 free samples too!).
