Best Tea

Gold Winner World Tea House, Halifax

Silver Winner DAVIDsTEA, Spring Garden

Bronze Winner Sawadee Tea House

David who? That’s what tea-drinking readers thought to themselves when they cast votes in the direction of Phillip Holmans’ World Tea House. “These awards, they’re really close to our heart because it really shows community support,” says the owner of the Argyle Street cafe and its Sunnyside Mall sister store. Inspired by both the desire to make a mega-change in his life—and the organic movement—Holmans took the company from hobby to farmers’ market to bricks and mortar in 2010. We raise a mug to that.
