tea cozy

I admit it I'm a Starbucks girl! It's purely out of convenience (I pass three Starbucks on my walk to work in the morning) and I'm not even a coffee drinker, but it's the ritual of buying a tea in a paper cup and drinking it at my desk that I love. If I had my preference though I would go to DAVIDs TEA every day. Fortunately I was in the area yesterday and made a pit stop to indulge in my favourite cup of Coco Chai Rooibos. While I was there I smell-tested a few from their new Winter Collection so if you're looking for a new tea to cozy up with this winter I recommend the following:

Chocolate Chili Chai - a fiery blend of black tea, chocolate and chili peppers (this one smelled amazing and I'm definitely going back for a 50g bag!)

Cloud Nine - a feel-good tea that combines St. John's Wort with black tea, black currants and acai berries (great for those February blahs!)

Read My Lips - black tea with vanilla, mint, chocolate, peppercorns and little red candy lips (totally refreshing, a nice alternative to peppermint tea)

If you live in Toronto there are several locations downtown, but if you don't have one near you order your teas online (you get three free samples with your online orders!)

Happy sipping!
