Tea Time..

I blogged about coffee this week, so I thought it would only be fair to talk about tea as well. Naturally I wouldn’t want to leave anyone out!!

This year, I received a dinner gift that I totally fell in love with. It’s a tea tumbler called “Liquid Solutions Tea-Zer”. I started to grate fresh ginger, placed it in the removable strainer, I added boiling water and bingo: beautiful fragrant ginger tea.

freshly grated ginger and my tea tumbler (that I love)

My uncle told me try chopped  lemongrass and I tried it but returned back to the fresh ginger.

I even experimented between normal ginger and organic ginger. The organic ginger won by a long shot.

Once in a while, I will stop at DAVIDsTea. I think they have done a great job with their store concept, their packaging, merchandising etc.

(can you tell I once owned a store?).

I am a sucker for tea thats called “read my lips”!!

The store is so fresh looking and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There is nothing not to like.

a great looking store..

Their winter line up of teas include: baked apple, organic electric lemon, organic cloud nine and choloclate chili chai.


Raise you hand if you are a tea drinker or even an occasional tea drinker like me!!

    Coffee is my crack but whenever I go to the café called Edgar over in Hull, I always have the Cha Yi tea. It just seems to go with the place. I almost always pick the Rooibos Safari. The Cha Yi store is in Hull as well. I love how fresh and uplifting it tastes. I don’t know much about tea or the tea making process but the idea of fresh ginger sounds pretty perfect. Lucky us to have a DAVIDsTEA right here in Westboro. I must give it a try.

    Ginger tea is SO delicious!!! Do you sweeten or drink it “straight”?

    At David’s I love that you can smell the teas before buying and even buy a singly cup to taste their teas. Another great tea shop is tealish.

    After tasting good loose leaf teas I can’t go back to boxed/bagged tea, can you?

    I am going to find one of those tea tumblers, they look great.
    I love ginger tea, but I have been doing it the old fashioned way, boiling in a pot on the stove, time to pay a visit to David’s

    I went to David’s Tea for the first time over the Christmas Holidays and fell in love with it. I’ve been on a tea kick and I too love the packaging. I’m looking forward to trying their website as well.

    I too love ginger tea. I usually only drink it when I have a cold though. It’s great for clearing the sinuses. I do need a better tea strainer…I might just have to pick up one of those ones.

    Thanks for the great post and heads up with the ginger.
