Hey Elise! So cool that you are into David's Tea! I live in Ontario, Canada and am ADDICTED to it! You have got to try "pure Chai" -it's so spicy, I make it with warm milk for a chai latte, perfect for fall weather. Also their "Citron Oolong" is a nice fresh lemon tea- add just a touch of honey....mmm
