David’s Tea Plans to Open Shop at Toronto’s Pearson Airport

Tea lovers now have an alternative at the airport.

Toronto’s Pearson International Airport has been working hard to up the ante on traditional airport fare. Early April they announced their new dining concepts and menus in Terminals 1 and 3 developed by renowned local chefs including Mark McEwan, Rocco Agostino (of Pizzeria Libretto and Enoteca Sociale) and Claudio Aprile (of Colborne Lane and Origin).

The results have been well-received with choices including a build-your-own burger at Nobel Burger Bar; wine bar Vinifera; modern Japanese cuisine at Acer; and Apropos cocktail bar. It only makes sense that they had to round-out these offerings with one of the city’s most beloved destinations for tea lovers: David’s Tea.

Officially opening September 22, the 1,700 square-foot shop will offer more than 150 varieties of their yummy teas, including never-before-seen flavours. With 75 locations across the country and the U.S., this is their first airport shop. “This first-even David’s Tea airport shop in Canada’s largest and busiest airport is a landmark location for us,” said David’s Tea CEO Jevin Eagle.

As you would expect, the experience you get in store is going to continue in this location too, including their free tea samples upon arrival and the airy and modern aesthetic. Plus you’ll still be able to choose your teas from their large colour-coded canisters on the wall. In addition to the teas, the store will also be offering gifts, tea samplers and accessories, including one of our favourite items: the Perfect Mug, which has a stainless steel infuser designed into the mug to make steeping a breeze.

Between the new dining options and David’s Tea, our next domestic flight can’t come soon enough.
