Recently I went with a friend to DavidsTea in West Edmonton Mall. She wanted to get some teas for her new tea cup she got as a holiday gift. At this time I was snobbish, never wanting anything but my Red Rose with sugar and milk. I decided to show some interest in the teas they had, really it is very impressive, a whole wall full of canisters holding teas I never thought existed.

The lady at the counter ask me how she could help me and at first I was embarrassed, what do I ask for? I knew nothing about teas and not only that but these teas where all loose teas. I blushed lightly and told her that I really did not know, that I was a Red Rose gal and drank nothing else. Thank goodness she was so amazing, all she did was smile sweetly and ask me if I liked black teas, herbal and so on. That was something I did know, I love black teas, after all that’s what Red Rose is, maybe this wasn’t so hard.

I told her I didn’t like herbals. That I had yet to find one I liked. I went on further to tell her I enjoy tea with a little sugar and milk. Becoming very serious she asked me if I had any allergies, this threw me off guard, why would they ask this? Because they have such a large selection of teas they keep allergies very much at mind. I was so impressed as I have a weird and as far as I know, some what rare allergy to cinnamon.

Off she went, grabbing this canister and that canister, when she was done I think she carried over, at once, 7 canisters of teas. What followed is not what you would expect, she told me the tea name and its ingredients and opened a compartment on the top. It was a rather shallow compartment with maybe 2-3 table spoons of tea. Awkwardly I stared at her, I mean it looked nice but I didn’t know why she was showing me. Thankfully she told me to go ahead and take a sniff.

A sniff? What kind of place was this? Shrugging I decided, what the heck why not? Oh the smells! Some of them I didn’t like, others I wanted to marry on the spot! What an amazing experience it was. Never in all my life had I ever done something like this and I didn’t want it to end. Sadly all good things come to an end and I had to make up my mind, what tea did I want.

I decided on two, Fantasy Island and La La Lemon.

I am so glad I went and will be going again soon.
