Best Little Tea Shop in Town

If you've been anywhere near Westboro recently, you've likely seen the influx of teal cups being toted from store to store. One of the newest additions to the Richmond Road shopping strip is David's Tea and we couldn't be happier!

So why are we talking tea all of a sudden? Well, it just so happens that the amazingly knowledgeable people across the street from us at David's Tea have a dazzling selection of loose leaf tea that left us reeling. After we stopped spinning, we got to thinking. Taking cues from our own intimate weekend tradition of taking tea with cupcakes we thought: what better partnership is there than tea and cupcakes??

It is with sizzling excitement that we present a divine partnership: tea pairings for each weekend's cupcake flavours! The good people over at David's Tea have poured over our monthly menu from The Cupcake Lounge and have provided their top picks for pairings to suit each flavour. Each Saturday you can now incorporate a little civility into your weekend by enjoying both your cupcake and a hand-picked tea that complements perfectly!

We are positively steeping with anticipation so without delay, here are the pairings for this month's cupcake menu!
