I have a Cinnamon Chai Rooibos up for trade.

I liked the stuff Sonia sent me but when I bought another 50g pouch it turned out to be not so yum.

I was in the David's tea in westboro (Ottawa) last night and the worker told me to expect an exciting announcement soon (she wouldn't tell me what it was). Ideas? Maybe the advent calendar again?

And the Winter teas will be available 1 Nov, according to the Brandon store manager.

I'm enjoying a cup of Cold 911....

This may be a new winter staple in this house.

I liked the Cold 911.

Refilled my tin of Secret santa, chocolate chili chai and mint chocolate roobois.

From the winter collection, I tried White chocolate frost (disappointing to me as it only tasted mint and not chocolate), the spiced fig was good but not something I can see myself drinking lots of. Coffee cake was also meh. I still have some alpine punch which I enjoy a lot so nothing very exciting for me.

I'm not sure I'm going to buy the calendar this year, it was a lot of fun to do last year but there were a lot of teas I didn't like...

i'm currently sipping some forever nuts from last year's advent. i need to finish those up. :lol:

i'm in for the advent calendar again! i actually think i'm going to buy a tea kettle for my office, so my tea ritual will probably switch from morning to afternoon this year. there were a few that i didn't love but not many (unless i'm not remembering correctly) that i thought were undrinkable. so the variety is nice.

OK, I know it's not David's Tea, but one of the young girls I know just starting being a distributor for Steeped Tea (I think is the name). I hope to sample some yummy teas and like some enough to order them.

I'm sad that Cocomint Cream isn't back this year. But my cup of Red Velvet Cake is good. I'll have to try some of the new ones soon.

Picked up my advent calendar today. :dance: I think we should do our taste testing thread gain for December, it was fun last year to see people's likes and dislikes.

I tried the gingerbread tea today. I don't usually like rooibos but it was really nice.

I thought people might have been hoarding for resale but I don't see any on kijiji yet.

None here either. I got a sample of coffee cake at the store tho and it was nummy. Normally I don't like these fancy teas but I may have to try some. I'll have to go back and check it out.

There are still lots in Brandon. I picked up mine today plus one extra for just-in-case.

I'm willing to send some out if anyone really really wants one. I did that for IG last year.

I had to head into work and my mom was kind enough to go to the mall and pick one up for me! I agree, we should start a thread again this year. I looked at the back of the box and I think only 50% are ones I have already tried. So super excited to sample some new things!

I went to David's Tea tonight and they were out of advent calendars. :( The good news though is that my favourite tea (Chocolate Chili Chai) is no longer a seasonal tea and it will be available year round!!! :D Last year, I only bought enough to last me until April.

No calendars to be found in Montréal. I sent L-A while I was in Savannah and no luck. The choice was made for me!

I bought an extra for anyone who needs it.

Last year Kiza was kind enough to make me one and send me a package. I would love to pay it forward. I am putting this up on facebook as well.
