DAVIDsTea Christmas 2015

Good morning, dear readers!

(Woah, so I wrote this post on December 2nd. 2015 and didn't finish it all at the time in order to actually post it, but I like this post so I'm posting it now!  Although some of the links in it probably won't work if they are for teas that aren't available anymore.)


Recently my sister and I went to DAVIDsTea when we were out Christmas shopping, and she picked up four of the Christmas skinny tins for me :D!!!  Eeeeeee!  (We kinda give each other Christmas gifts's a non-official tradition.)

Each of these adorable and beautiful tins comes with 50g of tea (and did I mention that the tins are adorable and beautiful??).  

It's also possible to buy the tea without a tin, and some of these come in larger tins as well.  The prices differ from tea to tea, but all of the skinny tins cost the same (more than the teas by themselves, but THOSE TINS!!). 

The skinny tins run for about $9.00 Can., but they had (and might still have) a deal for 2 for $15.00 Can..

Here's what we got:

Sleigh Ride


Falling snow, popping chestnuts, cold hands and noses…yep, winter has arrived. But don’t worry, we have the perfect tea to warm you up all December long. Cinnamon, apples, raisins, almonds, and hibiscus combine for a tea that is sweet, tart, and earthy. And beet pieces make it as nice and rosy as a caroler’s cheeks. So hop in your sleigh, snuggle up, and pass a thermos around. It’s lovely weather for a Sleigh Ride together. 

And packed in this slim, stylish little tin, it's the perfect way to take your new favourite tea everywhere you go. " - DAVIDsTEA

"warm yourself up

Maybe you spent the day on the slopes. Maybe it was a frantic afternoon of holiday shopping. Or maybe you’re coming in from an epic snowball fight. No matter what you did on this chilly day, there’s no better way to warm up than with a great cup of tea. And it doesn’t get more comforting than this mulled wine-inspired all natural oolong, with orange zest, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Whether you’re sipping it at the ski chalet, in front of a roaring fire or just between errands, it’s the perfect way to warm up your winter.

And packed in this slim, stylish little tin, it's the perfect way to take your new favourite tea everywhere you go." - DAVIDsTEA

"toastess with the mostess

Something about cardamom just puts us in a festive frame of mind. We love its rich, fragrant taste any way we can get it. One of our faves? The buttery, cardamom-scented Christmas breads popular in Sweden and Finland. And cardamom toast is great,it only stands to reason that cardamom French toast would be out of this world. With black tea, cardamom, cane sugar and cinnamon, this rich, sweet blend tastes just like the decadent breakfast of our dreams. Only this is one brunch item you’ll be wanting all day long. 

And packed in this slim, stylish little tin, it's the perfect way to take your new favourite tea everywhere you go." - DAVIDsTEA

Snow Day

"baby, it’s cold outside

Got a blizzard on the way? Score! There’s no better excuse to cozy up inside with a great cup of tea. And this all natural chocolate-mint tisane is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly winter day. With peppermint, cacao nibs and dark chocolate drops, it’s sweet, creamy and oh-so comforting. The best part? Cute little snowflake-shaped sprinkles that add a touch of sweetness. Bring it on, winter!" - DAVIDsTEA

I really love the aesthetics of the DAVIDsTEA winter theme.  I've also decided to start collecting their tins because they are so handy and cute.  I've got 5 now officially, the other being a standard green tea green colour from earlier in the year (when I picked up some of their matcha).  The 4 new ones are a welcome addition to our house tea collection.

We also got two of these adorable penguin infusers, which retail for $12 Can. but were on sale for 2 for $20 Can..

While we've tried Sleigh Ride so far in store (they have samples of the tea of the day) we have yet to try the other three and I'm really looking forward to it. :D (Update for August 2016: I've tried them all now and will write reviews later! :D)

For those who aren't very familiar with DAVIDsTEA (their logo looks like that with almost all caps) they sell teas as well as tisanes/herbal infusions (things from yerba mate, rooibos, to fruit and nut combinations and flowers and leaves.  They even have some coffee beans and candy in some products.  They also sell tea ware, from matcha utensils to their Nordic Tea Mugs (which are lovely and I just got one for my birthday and YAAAY!).

I definitely recommend DAVIDsTEA (from now on I'll probably write it as DavidsTea).  They do have some teas and tisanes that are one ingredient only, but they also have a lot of blended and flavoured teas and tisanes as well.

Have you ever stopped by a DavidsTea?  They also sell ready-made teas to drink on the spot.

Have a wonderful day, and I am really looking forward to their upcoming holiday collection!! :D

I still have the menu from their winter lineup, when I find it again I'll take some photos to update this post (I really really realllllly liked last years holiday look. with the dark and light blues and the penguins and stars.  So beautiful!  I hope the holiday 2016 look is just as beautiful!).


(PS. Their Cardamom French Toast is making a return this October! : D)


  1. The tins are super cute so I can see why you started to collect them.

  2. I love david's tea, these all sounds great!
