DAVIDsTEA Birthday Cake Review

September 25, 2016
DAVIDsTEA Birthday Cake Review

So it’s a little bit passed my birthday already, but I couldn’t help myself by brewing another cup of DAVIDsTEA Birthday Cake! I had a heavy dinner but was still craving something sweet yet caffeine free for the evening.

Besides, who says you’re only allowed to have birthday cake flavored tea ON your birthday?! I drink this tea all year round!

It had then occurred to me that I’ve had this tea tin filled with delicious tea for months and have yet to write an official review about Birthday Cake (‘official’ being used loosely, because I can ramble on about tea to anyone who has an ear).

Before you know it I had the kettle on, the camera out, and my lineup of tea equipment ready to go for the review. Continue Reading

how to make a tea holder and wrap presents using davidstea shopping bags

Don’t you just hate when you buy too much tea and you have a bunch of shopping bags everywhere? Neither do I!

The Perfect Tea Mug by DAVIDsTEA Review

February 14, 2016
perfect glass tea mug by davidstea review

I really believe there is a must-have item every tea lover should own in order to enjoy the best cup of tea possible…

… A perfect tea mug of course!

The perfect tea mug by DAVIDsTEA is quite possibly one of my favorite mugs to use for tea.

Last December when I was blogging about the 24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar , I used my perfect tea mug every single day for every tea sample that I drank and blogged about.

While I’ll be the first skeptic to judge whether a product is actually perfect, because it rarely ever is, this tea infuser mug comes pretty darn close.

I find they’re one of the easiest ways to enjoy loose leaf tea, and they’re wonderful for a range of different tea lovers. Whether you’re a casual or seasoned tea connoisseur, every tea lover should have at least one perfect tea mug. Continue Reading

Carry Travel Mug by DAVIDsTEA Review

January 30, 2016
carry travel mug by davids tea

I was looking for a new carry travel mug to purchase since I was overdue for a new one, when I just so happened to be nearby a DAVIDsTEA (and when I say happened, I really mean deliberately).

I am a huge fan of loose leaf tea travel mugs and use them almost every single day.

They’re one of the most convenient ways to enjoy loose leaf tea either at home, at work, on the go, or all three.

As someone who is very active and always on the go, I was searching for a travel mug that would be sturdy and leak proof, while keeping my tea hot. I commute daily and either drive or use public transit, and as such needed something that was easy to hold, especially when my hands were full with packing and unpacking a car, or carrying lots of bags on a cramped subway.

I was quite impressed with the carry travel mug by DAVIDsTEA as it’s a reliable and durable travel mug that looks good and keeps my tea piping hot. Continue Reading

DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea – 2015 Advent Calendar – Part 4

December 19, 2015
24 days of tea davids tea

We are now on the last stretch of reviewing and blogging the 2015 DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea advent calendar!

I’m really glad I was able to purchase the advent calendar this year as I’ve been able to sample so many new flavours! It’s a great way to try a sample of many flavours at once, instead of having to purchase the teas individually.

As mentioned earlier I’ve also been blogging about the tea reviews every single day. I haven’t reviewed the teas ahead of time or sampled a bunch at once, rather I review each one individually every single day.

You can also skip directly to the 24 Days of Tea list here.

Without further ado, let’s carry on!

DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea – 2015 Advent Calendar – Part 3

davidstea 24 days of tea

We are now passed the halfway mark for the 24 Days of Tea advent calendar (insert sad face here).

Since I always try to view things in life with a cup half full approach (ha get it – cup half full?), we still have another 11 more teas to review!

That’s 11 more cups of tea to taste, smell, photograph, write about, and enjoy!

As mentioned before, every single day I review that day’s tea sample. I don’t review the teas ahead of time or review a bunch at once. Otherwise what fun would an advent calendar be?!

Let’s carry on then, shall we?

Instead I will be doing 4 posts with 6 tea reviews each.

DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea – 2015 Advent Calendar – Part 1

December 1, 2015
day 1 of 24 days of tea

I’m really excited to write this post because for the first time ever I get to combine two exciting things together…

tea (duh) ….

and advent calendars!

I noticed last year there was a lot of buzz around the DAVIDsTEA advent calendars. I wasn’t able to purchase one last year, but this year I was fortunate enough to get my paws on one.

I was so excited about the advent tea calendar that I even made a quickie Youtube video … because it deserves a video all on its own!

I’m also excited to try the teas in this advent calendar because I would like to expand my DAVIDsTEA tea collection. Purchasing the calendar provides 24 different sample sized loose leaf tea. It’s a great way to discover new flavours without having to purchase individual sample sizes or bags of loose leaf tea.

Plus the excitement of an advent calendar format makes the process that more fun. If there are flavours I discover and I really like and want more of, I will be more than happy to purchase them in larger quantities.

For those of you who have not purchased the advent calendar but are curious as to what flavours are included and are looking for tea reviews, I will be adding to this post every single day. Each day I will open a new sample of the 24 Days of Tea and will talk about the flavours, aroma, ingredients, and general makeup of the tea. Keep checking this post as it will be updated daily.

Scoop n Slide Infuser Review

November 1, 2015
scoop n slide infuser

It’s been a while since I’ve been inside a DAVIDsTEA and now I remember why.

I spend way too much money in there.

I’ll admit the reason I went recently was to purchase one item, which was a cup of tea, so I could have one of their cool DAVIDsTEA Halloween cups!

What was supposed to be one purchase, turned into me picking up seven items, putting back three (not willingly may I add), and leaving the store with four.  Although it was hard to put back the three items, I left with four really neat products, one of them being the scoop n slide infuser.
