DAVIDsTEA Winter Collection 2013 Preveiw
Yeah, I’m surprised David’s tea hasn’t made an infuser that clips onto the side of a mug. I need to find one so that I can use any mug my little hart desires. Having said that, the basket from dT does fit most mugs, but might fall right into some of the larger ones.
I have the Steeper from Davids and I really like it. You can use it with any mug.
Choconut Oolong and White chocolate frost sound amazing!
I wasn’t a fan of Alpine Punch I found it made me thirsty.
Oh gosh. I am so excited. I love the new pots, but I wish the red bird bubble cups were red on the inside :(
I am super curious to know what is in the Spiced Fig and the White Chocolate Frost. also, the partidge mug set is gorgeous! I am very excited for the winter collection this year!
I received a sample of the Spiced Fig in my order today, and posted the list of ingredients: http://steepster.com/teas/davids-tea/41053-spiced-fig-winter-2013
boo! What happened to chocolate chilli chai!! I was told it was coming back this year :(
It happens to make me nauseous but they did have it at least two years running. I know it’s selfish but I wish they would stop devoting so much of the seasonal collection to repeats. If it’s in that high demand, bring it back separately and make new creations for the collections!
I hear ya. I found that with the 24 Days of Tea last year a lot of repeats. I would love to see more new creations for the collections. Time will tell
I agree with both of you! Though I am trying to get through the last my of CCC from last year as I bought a bunch and then didn’t like it as much, I think they need to focus on new teas rather than discontinuing favorites and then bringing them back. And I hope the 24 days of tea has better variety, I’m actually thinking of just doing 52 teas and Della Terra’s 12 days of christmas samplers together as a replacement.
It shows a picture on their FB page that Chocolate Chili Chai is definitely coming back in November.
I wish they would do that with Pumpkin Chai too! No more super repeats, if it has been more that 3 years on just keep it already.
Would love that also. I think I may have to go stock up today before it is all gone.
Anyone live near a David’s Tea in San Francisco? I need to try the Winter teas, but it’s not close enough for me to get to often.
Just got an e-mail about them bringing back “The iconic cup”. It sounds wonderful. Can someone tell me what it looks like? is it tall and skinny or short/fat? does it come in different colours? that sort of thing?
I got the same email. It’s a ceramic travel cup that is supposed to mimic the look of the paper go cups that you would take out, except it’s reusable. It also has a lid that looks like a coffe lid too.
The only color is teal, with a huge DAVIDsTEA logo written along the side. It’s nice enough, but I prefer my timolino. :)
It doesn’t come with a steeper, but apparently if you bring it in store you get 10% off your drink. I guess that’s your reward for advertising their tea? :P
10% off is more than the $0.10 you get at Starbucks! It’s weird, I have a bunch of sbux mugs with logos that don’t bother me, but the DavidsTea one does… I guess it’s because I’m SO used to sbux mugs.
Thanks for describing it! and yeah, I like my timolino as well. That, and I imagine that this isn’t spill proof. Like, at all.
If its anything like the Starbucks ceramic mug, not only is it not spill proof, but it is easily broken if you put it in your bag and drop it by accident, or knock it against something. At least they advertise it as having a plastic lid instead of a silicone one! IMO, much nicer to drink out of.
I have just received an order yesterday and along with it came the Winter 2013 tea menu!! So I have the list and description of the new teas:
-alpine punch: everyone knows it
-choconut oolong: With rich, dark chocolate, smooth-drinking oolong and just a hint of hazelnut, this is the perfect breakfast and the perfect tea, all rolled into one.
-coffee cake (black): This sweet, fragrant black tea blend has all the aroma of a fresh baked coffee cake, plus an energy boost from rich black tea and a fruity hint of cherry and pineapple.
-spiced fig (herbal): This festive tea combines cranberries, almonds, dates, cloves and big, luscious pieces of fig for a holiday treat that’s pure satisfaction at next to no calories. Caffeine free
-white chocolate frost (herbal): With peppermint, white chocolate and peppercorns, this cool, creamy drink that brings together everything we love about the season. It’s a warm hug and a cool winter day – all at once. Caffeine free
They also sent me a sample of Choconut Oolong, which I am SUPER excited to try!!! And samples of Sleigh Ride and Santa’s Secret, which I assume are coming back for the holidays.
I just got my order today and they sent me the winter tea menu also, with samples of choconut oolong, spiced fig and a gingerbread rooibos. I guess we had good timing with our orders!!
Can either of you tell me what the Nov/Dec/Jan tea of the months are? It would probably say in the menu :)
Do either Spiced Fig or White Chocolate Frost have artificial flavoring in them? Or stevia?
@Tealizzy Ohh lucky you for getting the spiced fig! Let me know how it tastes when you try it!!
Oh wow CCC is going to be permanent! That’s crazy news, I wish they would do that with Pumpkin Chai so they don’t have to bring it back each year.
Chizakura – the tea menu doesn’t list the specific ingredients, just a summary, so I don’t know about white chocolate frost, but from the spiced fig sample I got, it doesn’t list any artificial flavoring or stevia, but has “natural vanilla flavoring.”
Irene89 – I will let you know! :)
Tealizzy — Okay, great thanks! :) Yay I’ll be definitely trying the Spiced Fig then. Hopefully the same can be said for the White Chocolate Frost. :D
Just tried Choconut Oolong. Kinda disappointed… I left a review on the tea’s page.
