At Tsaa, the ginger rooibos is a straightforward red rooibos tea with a twist: slivers of dried ginger add a comforting warmth. 412 Danforth Ave., 647-347-8720.
Tea Emporium’s fermented, aged Yellow Dragon pu’erh is purported to reduce cholesterol. Claims aside, the lemon grass and ginger flavours are both zingy and soothing. 351 Eglinton Ave. W., 416-488-4061.
The smokiness of the Lapsang Souchong at Majesteas is strangely but pleasantly reminiscent of pepperoni, and its punchy taste will appeal to whisky lovers. 950 Queen St. E., 647-350-4646.
