I would probably get behind something like that if they were bottles that had 1.5-2 glasses in them

Okay - I'm set!

Got myself a Perfect Tea Mug with infuser and lid and a set of three of David's favourites:

coco chai rooibos
forever nuts
read my lips

What should I start with?!

Do I add milk?

Read my lips is one of my favorites. Can't go wrong there. I haven't tried the other two. I don't add milk to it, but you may want to...

Those are 3 of my favourites! I don't drink any of them with milk...

I am currently drinking Organic Buttered Rum. I think it would be better with a splash of milk :lol: (I'm serious though)

I think Chai is always better with milk. And I like read my lips with milk too. But none in Forever Nuts (I generally skip milk for the herbals). Great choices!

I told her I didn't want to make a decision - so, she suggested the "David's top 3" package....not sure if it cost me more, but, I did get some cute tins....

While I am enjoying it, my apple "allergy" is making it not as yummy as I would have liked. I have itchy ears!

I was thinking about building my own calendar! Maybe going in and getting 10 g pouches of like 30 different flavours I'd never tried before. I understand they'll sell in pkgs that small, but it seemed like a lot of packaging (and time for the store clerk!).

Why not just go buy a tea a day (have them make the tea)? Or is DT not in convenient location for you to do this?

no, there isn't one in burlington, unfortunately. closest is about 25 minutes away.

But.. when you add the boiling water they cook? Maybe? (I'm grasping at straws here...!)

Not for me, unfortunately. The location's not far from me, but not somewhere I go on a daily basis. No DT downtown here!
