David's Tea at Yonge and Eg

Degustation Apr 26, 2009 01:30 PM

It seems another David's Tea is opening up on Yonge, just a couple doors south of Pascale. Hope they carry those macarons people are raving about. Since this is much closer to me, it will be easier to snag them when they come in.

    i think the macarons are too soft... no crisp shell, which to me is important to making a proper macaron.

          He has a website: www.davidstea.com/
          Apparently, he is also opening a location in Bloor West Village, as well as a few in Montreal and Vancouver.

              lol - that was my first question too! But it doesn't look like it. The Yonge & Bloor West Village locations don't seem to be right next to a Le Chateau (and I actually looked up the addresses of current Le Chateau locations because I am crazy that way), though the one in Vancouver will be.

        I'm excited for this to open. Hopefully it has a few tables/stools where friends can chat. I'm always on the hunt for a Yonge/Eg coffee/tea spot that isn't Starbucks, Second Cup etc.

          Anyone have any good picks at David's Tea? There's one near my workplace, but the first few blends I tried (from the fall collection) were pretty much awful so I'd rather have some sure picks, if any exist. I like black tea, mate and rooibos and my favourite blends so far come from Steeped and Infused.

            I liked vanilla oolong I remember, but most of the stuff was blah.

              My favourite is the chocolate chile blend. I believe it's a rooibos, but I'm not quite sure. I just know that it's almost like drinking a nice cup of cocoa.

              I have also tried the teas at Tea-o-pia and they had a very nice chocolate mint iced with milk. Very refreshing almost tasted like an After 8.

                That's a good tip since I also have a Teopia near me. They actually call their chocolate mint black tea After Dinner Mint... I think I will try it.

                I like the chocolate rocket, a mate, but I need to put sugar in it. I also drink a lot of genmaicha. I recently tried the Earl's Garden, Earl Grey with flowers and strawberry, but am not a big fan. Also tried Earl's lemon, or something like that--a green/white tea that mostly tasted of citrus. I liked it.
