Move Oolong! (Get it ;) )

 

"Move Oolong..... nothing to Tea here!!"

Just kidding, come on can't we all just get Oolong? Lol
Ok, ok...... Enough with the corny puns. Lets really get settled and talk tea! 
If you haven't already guessed it by the puns, we thought this beautiful Taiwanese Tea named Oolong would be nice for a little sip & chat.
Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea. It's originally grown in Fujian but is now mostly produced in Taiwan.
Now the taste of Oolong varies depending on the type that you get. There is a regular oolong and then there is a milk oolong that has a thicker body to it and has a creamy yet buttery note to it. Our most popular tea, "Wow" happens to be one of the most magical oolongs you can find (in our humble opinion)
Now I know....  The question we all want answered  is
"What are the benefits of Oolong Tea?"
Well in short....many! But more specifically, this tea in particular is studied to boost your metabolism.  It's been famously dubbed " The Fat Buster"
It's also an antioxidant, it's good for your hair and skin along with preventing tooth decay. Whew! 
Fun Fact: Oolong is actually right in the middle of green tea and black tea. It is slightly more oxidized than a green tea and slightly less oxidize than black. The leaf is hand  rolled into a ball shape. Once it starts to steap in hot water the leaf fully opens up! #beautiful!
So, with all that info let's not stray to all the other teas let's try and get Oolong with it. #SuperCornyPun
Happy Sipping

March is all about....Going Green!

 

Leprechaun suits....... 4 leaf clovers.......... Thoughts of Spring.......... Matcha!

What do all these things have in common? ...
They're all GREEN!!
In this month of March people start thinking green for many reasons... St. Patrick's Day being one of the biggest. At T By Daniel we think that's awesome!
It's just the perfect reason toy start adding Green Tea to your everyday routine. 
Think about this:
Green tea is loaded with antioxidants, it boosts your metabolism, detoxify's your body, helps improve brain function and gives you the "Energizer Bunny Boost" to get you through your day.
Put it this way: Green tea will definitely keep you going & going & going.
A fun fact about matcha green tea for those who don't know what that magical green powder in the picture is.
Matcha is simply green tea that is stone grounded into a powder form. One cup of this powerhouse beverage has as many antioxidants as ten cups of brewed green tea.
#Wow!
Matcha has a very pure, herbaceous flavour to it. Lets put it this way. If the colour green had a taste, it would definitely taste like Matcha.
Now if you're not to fond of just drinking matcha on its own, an easy way to add it to your diet is by throwing into your smoothie or shake recipies in the morning. Add some almond milk with a touch of Cinnamon and maybe a drop or 2 or vanilla extract and make it your own creation! 
Remember tea is an adventure, tap into your crea-TEA-vity and explore with your tea!
Let's go Green everyone! 
Happy Sipping!

5 Reasons To Include Tea in your Daily Routine

 

 

Well tea lovers we've made it to Thursday Feb.9th. 2017! I mean we are already almost half way through the second month of the year, this is crazy!

Many of us have new goals and or resolutions for the year and we are slowly accomplishing them day by day. With that said it never hurt to also start the year off with some Tea!

Here are our top 5 reasons as to why we should all include tea into our daily routine for the year...

1. Hydration: our body is made up of about 70% of water and tea is about 99% water. So if we add atleast 2 cups of tea per day, then we know that ×+y = the hypotenuse of 5 which means tea is a good aid in hydration! Right...?

2. Antioxidant / Detox: Most, if not all teas can be catagorized under both of these headings. For example we like to say that White tea is the Mercedes Benz of teas, why? Because who wouldn't like to drive in a clean white Mercedes while drinking tea?..Just Kidding! White Tea is know to be the purest form of tea simply because it's the least oxidized and it purifies your blood. How's that for a cleanse / detox.
3. Benefits: Have you ever applied for a job and they hire you and tell you that you have to wait 3 months before you get their "benefits"? Well with Tea, let's just say You are in control of when you want those benefits. For example, if you are low in iron, have a Rooibos tea which comes from the south African Red Bush, or you want to kick start your matabalisim then enjoy a cup of Oolong tea, and if you just want to relax there is nothing better than a beautiful herbal blended tea in your cup.
4. Make it your own: Once people here the word "tea" they immediately think of tea bags in the boxes at the grocery store or classify it as "old fashion". We're here to tell you that tea can be fun and tea can have style. Seriously, on a hot summer day add a few ice cubes and your choice of sweetener. On days like this where its pretty cold,add some almond milk with a touch of agave, some cinnamon and a bit of vanilla and WAH-LAH! You got yourself a Lat-Tea! We here at T By Daniel believe that you dont have to just have tea at home in pj's you can dress fancy too and "Drink Tea In Style."
5. It's Kid friendly: Children look up to us and they follow what we do. If we continue to only have the sweet pops and overly sweet juices that all our children will want. However if we switch it up and introduce them early to have let's say a strawberry tea with some cane sugar or agave, they will accept this because this is all they will know. It's a much healthier alternative for both you and them. 
Again, tea doesn't have to be "boring" or "dull". Dress it up a little and your body will thank you in the long run. Keep it classy and drink tea in style!

Chocolate Lovers Unite!!

With Christmas right around the corner...we all have a lot of thoughts on our mind.
Did we accomplish our new years resolutions? What colours will we decorate the home with...and of course, what are we going to get our loved ones as a token of our love and appreciation for them as we celebrate the close of another year.
Well....if there's one gift we are never too old for....its chocolates, and lots of them!
And we have a tea that  is sure to satisfy the Chocolate Lover.....
Yes yes..It's delicious Chocolate Marteani!
The sweet taste of a toasty, chocolatey sensation in this cool weather is exactly what is needed.
Not only is it deliciously warming, Chocolate Marteani is a black tea, and black teas are known as stress relievers!
So imagine that.. a natural dark chocolate flavour with calendula petals, all mixed into a hot cup, with a bit of sweetener and milk, and you're ready to take on the day- stress free!  Especially delicious on those early mornings or late working afternoons, it's totally the perfect pick-me-up for those smooth dark chocolate lovers but without all the calories! A win-win situation wouldn't you agree?
Chocolate Marteani has been a favourite choice of mine ever since I began to really pay attention to the beauty of it and started drinking it when I had a craving for its rich chocolate taste! 
     Interestingly enough, I grew to love the lattea version of this lovely tea by trying it once, as a sample of the day at the store!
Every day we prepare different samples that give our customers, and sometimes event the staff, a small taste of our tea world. It's a smooth lattea created by mixing our chocolate marteani with a creamy vanilla bean. We call it Mr. Lova lova! (You can proudly say  it's because chocolate makes you fall in love with every bite over and over again). Sometimes, you're in the mood for both chocolate and vanilla, so we say, why can't YOU have both?
You'd be surprised how some would even say it doesn't taste like tea, because it's just.. so… delicious! It's also a healthier alternative and energizer that many prefer to start their day with.  So, if you haven't come down to the shop try Mr. Lova Lova, or Chocolate Marteani on its own, why not put your faith in the desire for your cravings and treat yourself! Christmas shopping at T By Daniel is a great way to remember those cozy winter nights before the big day when Santa would make his big appearance. There's just no denying that little kid we still all have inside of us.
Happy Sipping!

Cottage Night...Our Fall Special-Tea!

     The feeling of fall is finally here. It's in the colours of the trees the crispy cool in the air, and in my snuggly boots! Let's agree that every season has it's wonders that make us love it even more... and it just so happens that this cup of tea, is just what we need! Imagine a nice, warm sip of cottage night while relaxing after a long day. Made of apple pieces, beets, cinnamon and almonds, this caffeine-free treat will definitely do the trick when you're in the mood for winding down after a work day. AND yes! It is our friendly neighbourhood herbal tea, making it's way into our hearts and apart of our lovable in store Special Teas! 
     Mixing our cottage night with our creamy vanilla bean, makes for a cotton candy lattea! (it really does look like pink cotton candy!) Inspiring the tea tasting world with a light pink colour and a nutty, desert flavour in your mouth that will make you wonder where it's been hiding your whole life!
     This is just one of the many special teas on our menu that sooo many have fallen in love with already! Of course, it's a good idea to try it out in this chilly weather, if you haven't had the chance too yet.
We understand what this time of the year can be for some... the transition between free time to back to school school...warm summer nights, to chilly fall breezes... and ice cold teas turning into warm ones... BUT we hope cotton candy will help that transition into a yummy one! Don't be afraid to come in and let one of our retail magicians create your special-tea for the sleepless nights, or the crisp early mornings and feel the flavours of autumn come to life! 
Happy Fall Sipping!

Fun Fall Flavours! Yum!

What does autumn SMELL like to you? Maybe it's the crisp September breeze that reminds you of apple cider OR perhaps it's the sweet scent of a double layer pumpkin cheesecake?! For the T By Daniel family, it's the smell of warm yummy fall flavoured lat-teas!!

Yes, yes... it's that time again...

School is back and you may already be dreading the early morning commute. But just imagine.... walking or driving to school while sipping on a nice warm cup of Apple Strudel. To cheat or not to cheat... this early morning dessert seriously makes you question how something so good is also full of the great benefits of green tea! With notes of apple cinnamon and that toasty feeling of love in a cup, there is a 100% chance that your days will start of even better!

     And since we're on the topic of school.... lets roll with it. We all know everyone gets excited about that break from routine we get to celebrate Halloween (even though it's just one night.)

 BOOO!!!! ......(that totally didn't scare you.... but it was worth a try!)

Picture the time you carved your favourite pumpkin... and then think of the tea with the same name, you've got your Halloween mindset in motion! Jack-O-Lantern is our delicious black tea with notes of pumpkin chai, almond, apple and cinnamon....yummm.. a little something special that WE carved to add to our shelf! A warm Jack-O-Lantern and fall sweater weather go together like... like whip cream on pumpkin pie. Something you just can't resist. 

     Last but not least....walnut and almond pieces mixed together to create a toasty, roasty feeling, describes our delightfully scrumptious black tea, Caramel Popcorn. Another popular blend for our beloved fall favourites! But the flavour doesn't stop there...add a splash of sweetener, fresh frothy milk and sprinkled cinnamon to top it all off! Yum!!  It's time to make those long nights and early mornings something to feel good about. Autumn is a time for back to school, coziness, and the best feeling of a warm tea in the cool breeze. Don't be hesitant to try it for yourself and see exactly what we're talking about because seeing your faces will for sure make our days warmer too! 

Happy Sipping!
