Tea & Coffee Review Blog Hop *Review & Giveaway




 Welcome to the 3rd annual Tea and Coffee Review Blog Hop hosted by A Year of Jubilee Reviews
Each blogger in the hop is offering a giveaway of something to warm you up during these last few months of winter. Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate are just a few of the great drinks that will keep you toasty warm until we hit spring. Each blogger is offering a prize of a minimum of $20.
Be sure to hope around and check up the great line up!

I have two awesome Tea Companies to share with you!

Tea Bou-Tea-que


Tea Bou-Tea-que is out of Las Vegas Nevada and the owner Kathleen hand blends all of her teas. She has a collection of original and unique teas. All the teas I have tried from her have been outstanding! 

"Many years ago, in the 80's and 90's my brother and I talked about opening up the first Tea Store here in my home town, but at the time life goes on. So now I have decided later in life at the good age of 58 to start an on line tea store. I have been an avid tea drinker for over 30 years or more! I enjoy every aspect of tea. I have experimented with all kinds of tea and been to tea tastings. I am very passionate about what I create.
Another reason I love to blend tea is sometimes it is hard to find something different then what is in the stores and I love the creative process. Most of my teas will be organic and come from organic farms. I have herbal blends too, and pure essential oils in some of my teas. On occasion I use herbal extracts. One of my favorites herbs is lavender, cultivated in my own backyard. I usually dry it for personal use and you can bet that it will be going in my teas as well. In my listings I state the full ingredients."




Loose Leaf Creamy Vanilla Coconut tea was amazing! Loved this tea, very flavorful and unique.



 Special Occasion Tea is perfect for Valentines Day, with little candy hearts inside the tea. These add just a hint of sugar to your tea. This is a nice flavorful and fruity tea.


English Lavender Breakfast is a nice light tea with lavender flowers in it. This is a gorgeous smelling tea!

She is offering a Special Occasion tea, honey dipper and a handmade doily from her shop A Yarn to Remember.



Starwest Botanicals began as a small herb store back in 1975, a store of fresh herbs and products that were of great quality at great prices. They built their own herb mill in 1979 and since have become one of the largest suppliers of organic herbs in the country.
I was so excited to try their organic herbal teas. A company over 30 years old must know a thing or two about their herbs!
They are offering my readers these 4 organic teas in 4 oz packages!


 

I love that these teas are caffeine free. In the evening during the winter I love to snuggle in the chair with a book and a nice hot cup of tea. This peppermint is a fantastic tea, and it is really helpful when you have a stomach ache as well.



Chamomile has always been a gentle tea and tastes wonderful in the evening as you are winding down for the day. I love the whole chamomile flowers in this tea, perfectly natural!



Rooibos Chai is one of my favorite teas. This is a wonderful and flavorful blend. 
It has a wonderful cinnamon, ginger and clove taste and is lightly sweetened with organic stevia!


 

 Hibiscus Heaven is Starwest Botanicals number one selling tea. This fruity tea is high in vitamin C, and like the others listed above is caffeine free. This is an outstanding blend that I think would also make a wonderful iced tea.
