{CLOSED} Review & Giveaway: DAVIDsTEA

Happy Monday! I am so excited to be sharing the holiday collection from DAVIDsTEA with you all today. I've been a big fan of DAVIDsTEA since last year's holiday season when I discovered some of their amazing wintry loose leaf teas. Now I'm a regular drinker of their teas, and my favorites are their green florals and their sparkly Glitter & Gold! I love how fun and creative their high-quality teas are and their packaging is beautiful, which is always an added bonus. {You all know how much I love pretty things!}

this tin is filled with Santa's Secret

Before I left for Paris, I was able to sit down with Bradley and preview the collection in the Downtown Crossing location. (They also have a shop on Tremont St. in the South End and a brand new store at The Street in Chestnut Hill!) Not only are their new tea flavors delicious, but they have fun gifts available for the holidays, including collectable tins, stockings and gift tags filled with tea and even an advent calendar with a new flavor behind each day's door!


Bradley was kind enough to gift me with the winter collection, filled with 5 holiday flavors and 20 loose leaf tea bags, and the perfect tea mug which includes a strainer and cover so I can enjoy all the teas easily. He also gave me an extra winter collection, mug and a package of the gift tags to give away to one lucky Cupcakes & Couture reader!!

All you have to do to enter the giveaway for the DAVIDsTEA prize package valued at almost $60 is:
  1. Visit the DAVIDsTEA website and leave a comment on my blog with the tea flavor you most want to try. That's it!! {Comments without a tea flavor will not be counted.}
  2. For an extra entry, tweet your favorite flavor to @davidstea and @amybreckenridge and leave a second comment with the link to your tweet.
It's that simple! Good luck and make sure to enter by midnight ET this Thursday 11/21 - the winner will be chosen at random and announced on Friday 11/22!

  5. Considering I just dropped a pretty penny at David's Tea this weekend, I know I could always use more :) I passed up on trying the Coffee Cake this time around, but I'd totally love to get my hands on that one!

  21. Yum! I also love their tea, but am super excited to try choconut oolong.. mmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have to say I LOVE that you love glitter and gold. it has to be hands down my favourite flavour they make. I am dying to try the Alpine Punch, although a massive Green or Black tea lover there is just something so appealing about Almond and Apple in a tea. They used Apple in the "movie night" tea and it was out of this world. So Alpine Punch has all the right ingredients to knock my socks off.

  23. i love the white chocolate frost but i would really love to try the alpine punch!
