Tea Time!


I make no secret about the fact that I drink green tea daily. Yes, daily. Always a huge fan of iced tea, I upped the ante to the green persuasion when I started eating sushi (way) back in my (early) 20's. A ceremonious cup of hot green tea came at the start of every meal, and I grew deeply fond of its flavor and health benefits.

When Brooklyn's first outpost of the Canadian tea retailer, DAVIDsTEA, arrived here in Park Slope, stylist Amy was first to embrace the goodness (lucky lady, it's literally right out her front door). The next thing I know, I receive the following:


So last weekend, while prepping breakfast for her family, I was tickled to get this text message: 


Did I love it? Oh, yes. 

So much so that a stop at DAVIDsTEA was first on the to-do list over the weekend!

The team at DAVIDsTEA gives customer service on par to the deliciousness of their beverages - in other words, they are flawless. The lovely Stephanie took me on the grand tour, first off making my iced matcha with soy & agave:


As I sipped away, Stephanie treated us to a lovely tea overview, complete with tastings and the delight of smelling many of the store's offerings. With flavors ranging from Citron Oolong to Birthday Cake, and Rooibos de Provence to Pink Flamingo, there was not one tea I wasn't ready to try! Even the Little Miss - who has never given tea a thought - could not wait to try her iced Forever Nuts:


Because Mr. Newman's iced Coffee Pu'erh was so unbelievably delicious, we came home with the following treats to get our mornings off right:



PS, don't worry. DAVIDsTEA makes online ordering a breeze if there's not a retailer near you. Since I do not want any one of you lovelies to feel left out, I decided that this is going to be one of yours. That's right - it's giveaway time!

  1. I actually went to go try the Coffee Pu'reh, but ended up with the Coffee Chai, so I gotta go with Coffee Pu'reh!

  2. Liked Delightfully Dishy on Facebook! And I'd be interested to try the Cherry Cola Organic black tea from DAVIDsTEA. I bought my husband a sampler pack and a mug from their website for Christmas (and a mug for myself too!), and we're both smitten with all the DT offerings.

  20. Nothing sounds more comforting or relaxing than sitting back in a warm blanket fresh out the dryer, a good book and a travel mug filled with Creme Caramel. I have not tried it yet, but you can't tell me that doesn't sound extremely delicious. Oh boy !

  22. Liked! As for tea, I fell hard for David's Crème Brûlée... a delightful dessert tea with almost no calories? Yes, tea-se! Although as a Starbucks lover, the Coffee Pu'erh sounds sinful!

  29. Bubbly! I saw it at David's yesterday and it is said to taste a bit like champagne. Could anything be better than champagne AND tea?!
