Crisp cold mornings, frost, and yes some hail and snow have already made it my way in Michigan. Which means that is it perfect hot tea weather!
I love that they offer tea in a number of sizes including sample sizes all the way up to 14 oz. Plus they come in resealable storage bags, ensuring that your loose tea stays fresh.
When checking out enter code TEACABINET10 into the Coupon/Promotional Code box to receive the discount. It is good through 11/25/2010. Happy Shopping! Don't forget to stock up for Holiday gifts and parties.
Last weekend I visited Greenfield Village with my family. It is one of our favorite places to visit and we go often. They were holding a special Fall Flavors event along with a Farmer's Market. One of the vendors in the market was Chartreuse Tea. They are a made in Michigan company that features organic, caffeine free herbal teas.
I was first introduced to their teas while shopping at Whole Foods. The bright, chartreuse tea tin caught my eye. For an end of the year teacher's gift, I gave my daughter's two teachers a tin of the Peaceful Bliss blend. Highly appropriate I thought.
Anyway the Chartreuse Table at the Farmer's Market was a loose leaf tea drinker's dream. They had about 10 of their teas ready for sampling. They were all so good. I got to try Hibiscus Quench, Pride of Africa, Citrus Sunrise, and Mountain Green.
Check out the rosebuds!
I brought home three of their teas. Hibiscus Quench is made with organic hibiscus, organic rosehips, organic lemongrass, organic orange peel, organic spearmint, organic lavender, organic red rose petals, and organic stevia.
I love the rich color.
Mountain Green is made with organic green rooibos (my preference over red rooibos), organic orange peel, and organic lemon myrtle.
They also gave me Solomon's Seal, which I have not tried yet. It is Solomon's Seal Root and organic brown rice. I have not tried it yet, but I wonder if it is like genmaicha tea.
I highly recommend you try their teas, especially if you are looking for a caffeine free, herbal tea that is also organic too. You can find their tea at Whole Foods stores in Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin and online at Amazon.com.
Yesterday my husband and daughter traveled to our local mall to go birthday shopping for me. My birthday is not for another 4 weeks and this was quite the surprise. My husband is usually a fly by the seat of his pants, last minute kind of guy. When they came home they had a cup of iced tea from Teavana.
My daughter loves going there to try the samples and we usually walk out with something. My husband very excitedly says "you have to try this." It was a red colored tea and I could immediately taste the jasmine. I asked him what it was and he told me it was a blend of Strawberry Lemonade and Peachberry Jasmine Sutra tea. Normally my husband is not a big fan of Jasmine tea, so it was a surprise that he liked it.
These two teas make a really great blend together and I am going to add some of both to the tea cabinet. Now is a great time to do so too, because with every $30 order placed at Teavana.com, you can receive a gift subscription to Body+Soul magazine. What a great way to do something nice for your body & soul with tea and a magazine filled with articles and tips on living a healthy lifestyle.
*Magazine subscription is valued at $9.95; refer to the Teavana website for full offer and refund details.*
I was shopping the other day at Target and spotted this in the tea row.
I'm not sure how long Lipton Loose Tea has been available, but I'm not sure I have ever seen it at the store before. I'm always on the lookout for different teas to try. I didn't get any but may try it in the summer. I do enjoy iced tea brewed from Lipton on occasion and this may be a better alternative.
