David's Tea Holiday 2015 Gift Ideas

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Makeup makes great holiday gifts but for those that prefer something a little more edible, David's Tea offers up some of the best winter gift ideas. Today I have a small selection of items from the Holiday 2015 range, to see what goodies you can pick up, click.......
Tea for the Tree
Tea for the Tree ($20 CAD):
This is a beautiful gift set featuring four bags of 20g tea, each housed in an adorable metal round ornament. Included are the Hot Chocolate Pu'erh Tea, Snow Day Herbal Infusion, Alpine Punch Rooibos, and the Banana Nut Bread Fruit Infusion. Each ornament comes with its own gift tag so you can technically split this setup and gift them to different tea lovers. The only downside of the set I want to bring up though is how incredibly difficult these ornaments are to open. I literally had to use a pair of sturdy tweezers to slowly wedge the two halves open.
Tea for the Tree
Snow Day Sachets ($10 CAD):
Snow Day is one of David's Tea's classic holiday flavors. A very peppermint herbal infusion with cocoa beans, cocoa, husk, chocolate drops, and white chocolate, Snow day is invigorating and lightly sweet at the same time. I think this is a great set (12 sachets) for someone who doesn't drink tea that often and doesn't have infusers or tea filters handy as the individual sachets come in very nice and biodegradable filters.
David's Tea Sachets
The Perfect Tea Mug ($23 CAD):
This is a beautiful dark blue mug sprinkled with pretty delicate star designs. The cup comes with a nice and large tea infuser and a lid that doubles as a saucer for the infuser. The interesting thing about these cups is that dark blue stars are heat-sensitive, so once you fill it up with warm tea, they will change color.
The Perfect Tea Mug
The Nordic Tea Mug ($23 CAD):
A light mint cup with a gorgeous heat-sensitive snowdrop that turns white when you pour in your hot tea, the Nordic Tea Mug also comes with a stainless steel infuser and a lid that doubles as a dish for the infuser. I  think the only criticism I have with the David's Tea mugs is that they are quite heavy. We use fine-bone china in our household so these are definitely a lot heavier and chunkier.
