After my radio show on Wednesday, I was inspired to go to DAVIDsTEA on Bank Street to check if they had the Kanpe tea. I didn’t realize it was unveiled last Thursday while being in Montreal for the Arcade Fire free outdoor show for Pop Montreal. DAVIDsTEA and Kanpe Foundation teamed up to contribute the rebuilding of Haiti since the earthquake.
The funny thing when I went to the tea shop, I didn’t realize that they were suppose to sell it on Thursday. Luckily, the nice employee was keen enough to let me buy it and not let anyone know about it. I kind of sweet talked my way about attending the Arcade Fire show in Montreal last week.
As seen from the photo above (apology on an object being shown. It’s not the iPad, it’s something else). The 40g gift can and the labelling looks lovely. As for the ingredients, it consists of organic hibiscus, mango, coconut, banana, papaya, cinnamon, stevia and natural flavouring.
Onto tasting the tea, it had a tart and tangy taste. I pretty much liked it because it was just flavourful. I never expected a red colour (photo below). It reminded me of previous teas I drank that had a fruity and tangy taste. I just can’t remember what kind.
All in all, getting the Kanpe tea was worth it because it goes for a good cause to the Kanpe Foundation and being an avid tea drinker, I go for any kind of flavours. As the website says, it’s to “celebrate Haiti.” I don’t know if the tea is for limited time but just check up them up if they have any available.
Last thing, the photos were taken while watching Nat & Marie over from the iPad.
Since I can’t get over the Arcade Fire free outdoor show from September 22, 2011. I found this on fan shot clip from YouTube. Haiti live at Places-des-Festival during Pop Montreal.
