Our story

Welcome to the world’s best tea party

Great tea, friendly stores and above-and-beyond customer service. It seemed like a simple idea, but we couldn’t find anyone else that was doing it. So in 2008, we decided to take matters into our own hands. We opened our first store on vibrant Queen Street in Toronto, Canada, and before long, first time customers became regulars, our neighbours became our friends and our store became a community fixture. And the same thing has happened at every new store since. Today DAVIDsTEA has over 230 stores in neighbourhoods and communities across Canada and the United States. And we’re not slowing down any time soon – we can’t wait to share the DAVIDsTEA experience with the whole world.

Over 100 teas to discover

Walk into a DAVIDsTEA today and you can choose from over 100 teas, including exclusive blends, limited edition seasonal collections, traditional teas, pure and flavoured matchas and exotic infusions from around the globe. Not to mention the largest collection of organic teas and infusions in North America.

Taste the difference full-leaf teas and whole ingredients make

We’re seriously passionate about great tasting teas, and we have something to satisfy every palate and craving. Looking for a sweet treat? Then you’ll love organic Cream of Earl Grey, our vanilla-laced spin on the classic black tea, or S’mores Chai, a creation that tastes just like its namesake. Into something more traditional? Check out premium teas like Nepal Black or Ceremonial Matcha. And to help you make the best cup of tea possible, we design our own innovative tea accessories, from spoons and infusers to tea sets and travel mugs.

Spread the tea love

So… why tea? Because it’s healthy, delicious and fun. Because it brings people together, all over the world. Because it’s the second-most popular drink on the planet, after water.

And, quite simply, because it makes us happy.

forever nuts

What can we say? People thought we were crazy when we launched this almond-packed fruit infusion – pink tea? beetroot?!? After 10 years as our bestselling tea, I think it’s safe to say you’re as nuts about it as we are.

nordic mug

Scandinavian design, meet North American appetites. We introduced this large-capacity mug because our customers wanted bigger mugs for more tea – and it’s been your fave mug ever since.

This little workhorse is the tea tool we’ve used to make every single iced tea in our stores since we introduced it in 2010. We’re still not tired of that magical quick-release pouring style.

tea press

You guys, we’re so proud of this one. You kept asking for an insulated vessel that could steep hot or iced tea anywhere, with no need for teabags or anything else. This all-in-one powerhouse is our version of a revolution.

perfect spoon

This cult fave was the very first thing we ever designed ourselves! We wanted a spoon that would scoop the perfect amount of tea, every time. Now we can’t live without it.

organic mother’s little helper

This herbal infusion was one of our first ever sleepytime teas. We named it after a Rolling Stones song because of its calming dose of valerian root – aka “nature’s valium.”

matcha maker

This sweet little shaker was a real DAVIDsTEA milestone. It was the first ever portable matcha maker on the market, and thanks to our obsessive need to make everything better, it’s still the very best.

organic cream of earl grey

This was one of our first traditional teas with a twist. We lovingly reinvented Earl Grey – the classic bergamot black tea – with gorgeous marigold blossoms and a hint of creamy vanilla. Still a DT classic!
