With a mild winter, spring has arrived early this year and the warm weather has been welcomed with open arms --unless you are a seasonal allergy sufferer!
The buds are already starting to bloom and symptoms of sneezing, runny noses, itchy eyes and scratchy throats are starting to become apparent to some. Most have chosen the method of taking over-the-counter medications for temporary relief. However, in this city, who has time to feel groggy all day? Like any New Yorker, allergies can be a burden and slow down your busy day.
With a philosophy that "tea is fun," DAVIDsTEA has decided to do something special for the leap year. Today, on this special extra day we get for free, they have decided to give away a free cup of tea. They are offering an Organic North African Mint which is a green tea with peppermint, cardamon, ginger, licorice root, fennel, clove and black pepper. You can also get a cup of Green & Fruity which is caffeine-free with green rooibos from South Africa and tropical notes of papaya, mango and peach. This deal lasts all day from 8am to 11pm.
DAVIDsTEA, the tea shop that originated in Montreal, Canada and recently opened two shops in New York on the Upper East Side and West Village, is continuing to expand their loose-leaf tea collection by creating a special one for Valentine's day. DAVIDsTEA uses ingredients from all over the world to make exclusive blends that have interesting flavor combinations.
They are offering two "Love Elixirs" for Valentine's day as well as a Sweetheart Collection. Their "Love Elixirs" combine ancient aphrodisiacs from around the world to get him or her in the mood for love.
