Recently I decided to head to David`s Tea to pick up a matcha whisk but unfortunately they were sold out of them. So while I was there, I decided to get 50g of free tea. You`re probably wondering as to how I was able to get $20 worth of tea for free.
Well as a Frequent Steeper, you are able to get points for every purchase you make. How their point system works: every $1 you spend, you get 1 point. And if you get 100 points, you can trade them in for 50g of ANY tea they have, including the higher priced teas. I`ve been a frequent shopper at David`s Tea for a while now but didn`t join their rewards program until September of last year. And it didn`t take me long to get 100 points ha.
-Type of Tea: The tea that I decided to get was their Oolong Supreme. I have always wanted to try this tea but the price is the biggest barrier. Their Oolong Supreme is one of their most expensive teas but from those who have tried it, they have said it`s a very good tea. And it`s also one of their `Fan Fave.` The description they have online is: `This super-rare, highly sought after tea comes from one of the most famous holy places in China: Mount Wudang, known for its ancestral temples, its world-renowned martial arts and of course, for its seriously next level tea. And this twisted leaf Dan Cong oolong is no exception. With notes of ripe plum and shea butter, plus a unique hint of roastiness, its lightly nutty, surprisingly complex and totally refreshing. Because, hey. Its not just any oolong. Its supreme. (MK Kosher)` If you`re wondering what Oolong tea is, it is a tea that`s in between green and black tea. But it`s Chinese name means `black dragon tea.`
-Smell: This tea smells really good! Personally I think this tea smells a little sweet, which is probably brought on by the ripe plum notes. You can also pick up a little bit of roastiness, but I can`t seem to smell the shea butter or the light nuts.
-Amount: Since I only had 100 points, I decided to just get 50g. I was offered to get 100g and just pay 50g since the first 50g was free, but I declined since I am not sure whether I would like this tea or not.
-Price: For 50g of this tea, it is $19.50 CAD before taxes. The price of this tea is about double of their other teas.
Overall, I am really happy to have been able to try their Oolong Supreme tea finally! I like how you are able to exchange your points for any tea, which is a great incentive for others to keep shopping there.
What`s your favourite tea?
