Gone are the days when tea was relegated to stuffy formalities like the infamous raised pinky finger. One of the shops leading the charge is DavidsTea, which can now be found in Ottawa with two new locations. Started in Montreal three years ago by a 27-year-old who was tired of coffee being all the rage, this tea shop offers plenty of cool accessories and more than 100 types of loose leaf tea. But this isn’t your ordinary selection – here you’ll find fun flavours like Coco Chai Rooibos, Dulce & Banana, and Buttered Rum. Divine! 339 Richmond Rd., 613-728-3131, and 798 Bank St., 613-236-6548.
