DavidsTea is my second favorite thing based in Montreal, but first favorite because they disappoint me less…as in I’ve only been disappointed by a sample tea.
The $5 shipping is so awesome, in fact, it’s cheaper than some “flat rate” shipping costs I see from companies in the United States. And I like the fact that ultimately when ordering from the US, you are given a choice between it being delivered by USPS or UPS for the same cost. I don’t trust my post office, so I appreciate that. And it only takes a week to get here!
This latest time I was ordering, I saw Southern Belle come up as $5.50 on the black teas page, but the first listed price was $6.50, or the regular 50g bag. When I emailed, customer service told me they moved the $5.50 special edition bag to be first on the list for everyone in the future. I hadn’t placed my order yet, but they would have fixed it for me to get that bag.
Everything comes packed perfectly, and I love that they give you 3 samples. For now this works wonderfully for me, but one day I will get to one of their actual stores and probably die of happiness.
Now that I’ve placed my third order now, I love that they’ve changed the samples! They come in sealable bags like the 50g teas, and it definitely seems like more tea too. And I love that if you ask for a certain thing to sample, they’ll get it to you. Love love love love.
