Review: Valerian Nights

Soothing chamomile mingles with lightly sweet caramel and creamy coconut. – David’s Tea Sugary sweet with strong caramel overtones, Valerian Nights may not seem like the type of tea to put you in a drowsy state, but it fulfills its sleepy intents (to an extent).

Review: Pumpkin Chai

Rich, spice-filled and comforting, with a hint of caramel – like a slice of pumpkin pie! – David’s Tea Warm and cozy, this delicious blend resembles more of a sweet gingerbread than a pumpkin chai.

Review: Choco Chaga Detox

A rich and not overly sweet chocolaty blend, with lightly fruity and earthy notes of cocoa. – David’s Tea I am . . . so disappointed, haha.

Review: Cardamom Macchiato

Rich, creamy coffee flavours mingle perfectly with fresh notes of aromatic cardamom – DavidsTea I love starting off my workday with this tea, it smells as delicious as coffee but delivers a sweeter, lighter taste.
