I had a mild panic attack today when I realized that I am out of ‘Read My Lips’ – an amazing chocolate peppermint herbal tea from Davids Tea and one of the store’s top three sellers.
Davids Tea, formerly located by the now vacant Le Chateau space at 4th/Yew, is currently closed while renovations for a new space across the street are underway. Their new home was recently a Kits shoe store. With all these empty storefronts, I’m just glad Davids is staying in the neighbourhood.
Anyone who has been in Davids lately knows that a little more space is desperately needed. The store has developed somewhat of a cult like following and is almost always packed with people smelling, tasting and sipping tea. The new store is expected to open later this month. In the interim, Kitsilano residents can take advantage of free shipping from the online store using the special code DTlovesKits.
