DAVIDsTEA Chai Collection & Glass Latte Mugs Are Back!

DavidsTea Fall 2017 Chai Collection Teas - White Chocolate Chai - Smores Chai - Pumpkin Chai

I was not that excited by the Chai Collection that hits DAVIDsTEA stores today.  I am fussy about chai as I am not the biggest fan of cinnamon but then I heard latte mugs are making a comeback.  There may have been some actual squealing when I saw the double walled latte mugs online!  While everyone else is oohing over the new raccoon Nordic, I am stocking up on latte mugs!  But there are new teas, so let’s start with[Read more]

Wild Heather Campfire Smores Tea

Wild Heather Campfire Smores Tea - Loose Tea

I realize that lapsang souchong is not for everyone.  The smokey smell, the strong flavour, definitely an acquired taste.  But if you have ever wanted to try one, Wild Heather Tea Company’s Campfire Smores is a great starter.  With a sprinkling of cocoa nibs, chocolate chips and sugar the sweeter taste makes it the perfect beginner tea for a Lapsang.  Still very smoky (even more so than DAVIDsTEA Lapsang Souchong Star but less pine flavour) but the sweetness and chocolate[Read more]

I bought this as part of their sampler package which includes[Read more]

DAVIDsTEA Mudslide Review (Cocktail Collection)

DavidsTea Mudslide Tea Review - 2017 Davids Tea Cocktail Collection Tea Review - Loose Tea

Maybe it is my feelings on coffee but Mudslide doesn’t seem to suit the collection.  The other three teas in the Cocktail Collection, plus Raspberry Mojito in the Cocktail Mixer set are all summery fruity teas and then there is the heavier Mudslide.  The only tea without apple, the only blend with a tea in it and the one that is best hot or as a latte.  I mean they had so many to choose from, I would have loved something[Read more]

DAVIDsTEA Strawberry Shake Tea Review

DavidsTea Strawberry Shake Green Tea Review PIN

The second tea I am sharing from the Malt Shop Collection from DAVIDsTEA is Strawberry Shake.  If you missed Vanilla Swirl, check out the review here.  DAVIDsTEA describes this as a creamy blend of green tea, strawberry and yogurt.  The scent of the bag is exactly like a strawberry shake, or those kiddy pink strawberry yogurts that have no fruit bits in them. DAVIDsTEA Strawberry Shake Ingredients & Steeping Instructions Ingredients: Green tea, papaya, yogurt bits (partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, milk[Read more]
