  4. I truly don't believe in coincidence. Each step we take has some reason. And lo and behold yesterday was my first visit to a David's Tea. Loved the samples, the help was amazing and I just savour my mulberry magic tea I picked up for the holidays. Definitely going back and now I see David's Tea is on Eat Clean! Definitely not a coincidence

  8. I love David's Tea! I like Jessie's tea, it is sweet and relaxing. I have a cup everyday when I come home from work prior to making supper. This used to be my binge time of day when I would eat junk to deal with the stress of the day and now I have a relaxing cup of tea instead. My oldest daughter introduced me to David Tea. I have ordered a couple of teas for her for Christmas, delivery was speedy.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow, just reading all the names of these teas is making me hungry! I've never tried David's Tea, but I can't wait to try! I've used tea to help curb unhealthy cravings in the past, and found it to be very effective.

  25. I have never tried them but have always wanted to!!!

  26. They have an amazing green tea : sencha ashikubo. I'm a smoked black tea drinker myself, but I swear, this green tea could make me change my mind. It's a lovely tea!

    ReplyDelete
  27. The only Davids Tea i've tried was the Tropicalia! OHMYGOSH! I've been meaning to order more because honestly, that tea was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Tea does a good job at keeping me on track. I typically start my day off with some sort of tea and it helps my day go smoother. If i forget my tea, meditation and prayer my whole day feels sloppy, rushed and frantic. So i am defiantly a firm believer in a good tea to jump start your day healthily

    ReplyDelete
  28. Right now I'm loving Jessie's Tea its soo good and when I don't finish it and leave the cup in my room it works as a wonderful air freshener

    ReplyDelete
  29. My favorite DavidsTea right now is the Strawberry Rhubarb. It's herbal, so perfect for those cold evenings at home when it's too late for some caffeine. Plus, it's delicious!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love David's Tea Buttered Rum. Perfect way to warm up on a chilly day!

    ReplyDelete
  31. There are so many amazing teas from David's tea.. but the one I really enjoy is Pumpkin Chai...especially around this time of year it really helps me to stay on track! It's like eating a pumpkin pie without the calories and the sugar! Also love ref velvet cake and buddha's blend for anyone wanting to try some!

    ReplyDelete
  32. sorry meant red velvet cake!! ** ^^

    ReplyDelete
  33. My favorite is by far Movie Night. It lets me have all of the comfort and delicious flavors of rich, buttery popcorn and enjoy is sans calories! No fuss no muss and it's absolutely delish! Best treat for a saturday night!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Definitely love the glitter and gold. Its sparkly and delicious

    ReplyDelete
  35. My absolute favourite David's tea right now is a combination of Oh Canada + Forever Nuts, when you mix them together they taste just like french toast! I always make it for my early mornings at work, it's the only thing that keeps me going in retail at Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've never had any DAVIDsTEA but they seem to have plenty to choose from. For dessert tea perhaps organic buttered rum, for unflavored the Nepalese teas on offer are sure to be delicious as well as the organic black Jasmine pearls.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I just came across David's Tea today so I haven't tried any yet. We've decided to head down and take a look for some baskets we're making and I can't stop looking at the website lol. I'm definitely craving something chocolatey.. maybe Chocolate Cake or Chocolate Chili Chai! Looking forward to it :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like the vanilla oolong, its a nice warm treat when I'm trying to avoid another dose of coffee

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love Davids tea! Chai tea is my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love cocomint! It's just that right blend of calming and exciting :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. My favourite is Organic Detox, since no matter how sick or tired I'm feeling, it always makes me feel good as new after drinking it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. My favourite is green and fruity, its caffeine free so I can sip it when I'm up late with homework and not.be stuck jittery and caffeinated :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Santa's Secret is definitely my secret too. On those evenings where I need an extra boost to finish off one more paper for grad school, I make a pot of this peppermint black tea. It has mark-boosting capabilities! My only issue with it is I can't decide whether I like it better hot or iced. And I just ran out.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Toasted Walnut green tea! Keeps me going through my classes as a university student and it's amazing because I never get bored of it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Chocolate Rocket gives me the boost I need without the crash of regular caffeineted drinks...but what it really does is warms my soul knowing I'm having a sweet treat that won't spike my sugars and really make me crash....

    ReplyDelete
  46. My favourite DT changes daily! Today's choice: Santa's Secret or Le Digestif.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Alpine punch is delicious and sweet enough to ward off any temptations!

    ReplyDelete
  48. My go-to is mango diablo. The green tea revs me up just enough, the spice and mango taste amazing, and I feel fantastic and energized!

    ReplyDelete
  49. My daughter got me hooked on David's Tea after she ordered it online. I love ice cream cake. So excited to see DT on Eat Clean!

    ReplyDelete
  50. My favourite David's tea is the "organic Japanese sencha" - it has a refreshing taste. I drink it in the mornings to help me get through the whole day!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I got the David's Tea sweet sampler last year for Christmas and I loved it. I'm dying to try the cookie dough tea!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm a David's Tea virgin - I have drooled over the website, but as yet haven't tried it... so here's hoping!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have so many of flavours from David's tea. However hands down "forever nuts" will always be my number one choice. It has such a flavourful taste to it that can make me feel so much better and relaxed after a long day. The pink colour it turns is also a nice perk as well.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Santa's Secret is my new favourite, though I'm a big fan of Pumpkin Chai and Midsummer Night's Dream too :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. This recipe looks amazing - can't wait to try it as this is one of my favourite teas! David's website has lots of great recipes too (forever nuts bread yum!) and proud that they are a great Canadian brand.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I absolutely love forever nuts!! it's naturally sweet and delicious. I enjoy it after dinner or in the evening when i'm craving something sweet. it hits the spot.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I recently tried Cocomint Cream and absolutely love it. My other favourite would be Checkmate, a combination of black and white tea, but has a chocolate taste. Great for fending off cravings.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love Jessie's Tea. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. I discovered Davids Tea this year. As im breast feeding my first baby (Elinor loves the green cups) i cant drink coffeine. So i am super thankful for all rooibos kind teas and all herbal ones. I have Oh Canada, Forever nuts...and some more. Im super excited to taste all the coffenated ones...as i love green, white, black teas. ( eventually ill be done breastfeeding..lol).
    I wanted to buy the 24 tea advent calendar but it sold out too quick. I would be over the moon if I win. Good luck with all the new store openings!!
