I have visited my share of coffee shops lately. My schedule allows me to explore the world of afternoon caffeine retreats, but when I discovered DAVIDs TEA I had to tell the coffee shops it’s not them it’s me. I had to move onto something new. TEA. I consider myself a very lucky gal to have one of the only DAVIDs TEA in the U.S. a few blocks away!
I’m not writing this to brag, I’m writing in hopes that they will expand beyond their Canadian walls so more of us can enjoy all he has to offer. The knowledge of the employees, the education and time they provide to you, and the environment, are a few of the reasons I love this place.

The experience: As you walk in the space is brightly lit, open, and clean. You’re greeted by one of the friendly employees who always offers you a free sample followed up by asking “how do you feel today”. Isn’t it so nice for them to ask!? Then you can just let it all out…tierd, sad, fruity, sexy… I wonder if anyone has ever dropped “sexy” before. I’m sure even if you did, they would have a tea option for you! At that point they would pull a variety of teas and while you take a whiff of the aroma they would describe to you the ingredients.
You can take the tea to go, or sit down at the table and couches with a tea set for some quite time or a social gathering. If you decide you want to make DAVIDs on your own than shop away. Plenty of tea pots/cups and flavors for even the mad hatter to go crazy.
