Like the other DAVIDsTEA sets the packaging is attractive, with the a magnetic lip on the lid. You can tell a great deal of care went into this set. The patterned print on the box is well designed, even the inside is attractive, containing a dual French/English manual just like the other sets, but in red and with its own teas listed.
- The tea’s in this set are decidedly for the enthusiast or expert. The selection is all pure, nothing flavored, with multiple kinds of white, green, oolong and black teas, and even a Pu’erh for good measure.
- Of the different DAVIDsTEA sets, this one would fit best for those with a sweet tooth or who are looking to avoid caffeine for any reason.
- Audience: This Sweet Indulgence set is sure to be popular with almost anyone with a sweet tooth. There’s plenty to enjoy here with a wild mix of flavor sets to keep anyone’s palate entertained. For those looking to kick or avoid caffeine this would be the closest to ideal, but it’s not 100% there. Ensure they stick to the Rooibos blends, and pure tisanes as described in the manual.
Value: This set costs $26.50 USD. The amount of tea included, the quality and the flavor spread of this collection compared to other sets on the market makes this set a great buy for sure! For the price, this is a great set to attract your sweet tooth friends to tea.

Really great idea, Chris. It’s of limited value to me because I don;t live in America, but I applaud your efforts.
Thanks for the feedback. The set from Taylors of Harrogate was from the UK, but perhaps next year I could get some nice sets from all over the world!
Whoa this is pretty in depth. I’ve been buying a lot of tea gift sets to give to people for Christmas this year, and there are a few really good suggestions on this list.
Here’s a list of one’s that I’ve been buying and had good results with…but I may have to take some of your suggestions.
