#Giveaway - Luxurious Six Tea Sampler Assortment from - ends 6/30/15 US

For us, there is nothing better than a nice cup of hot tea.  We have always enjoyed all sorts of different teas.  We have one shelf in our cupboard that is dedicated to tea, and each month it gets restocked.  We recently received from a luxurious six tea sampler assortment to try.

This tea sampler from came in a nice box that was filled with six different tins of loose tea.  These are all high quality great tasting teas, but without the high prices you will find at other tea shops.  Each and everyone of these teas from this sampler are delicious and come in their own little square tin canisters!  Let me tell you a bit about each tea:

Vanilla Rooibos Tea - This Rooibos is grown in the Cedarberg district of South Africa known for producing tea that is incredibly high in vitamins and minerals. Research has shown Rooibos tea to be a rich natural source of antioxidants with a high level of flavonoids. With low tannin and the absence of caffeine makes it an ideal drink, even at night.

This Rooibos is mixed with subtle notes of sweet fresh vanilla, calendula petals, and almond slices.  It is such a delicious combination, and has become a favorite of ours to sip after dinner.  A dash of sugar and milk helps to bring out the natural sweetness of this tea. Serve hot or cold for a real treat!

Keemun Black Tea - This is an exquisite black tea from the southern Anhui province in China. When brewed it has a sweet orchid aroma and a dark orange color. Keemun black tea is considered the finest of all black teas.

This black tea is very smooth tasting.  Such a treat in the morning to get us up and going.  I love black tea made white with raw sugar and half-n-half, but many people prefer it black.

Jasmine Green Tea - Jasmine green tea is extremely refreshing and is great at quenching thirst. When brewed, this tea yields a pale green color with subtle aromas of the finest jasmine. This is a great tea for all occasions.

I just love the floral bouquet and flavor of jasmine green tea.  It is the only green tea that I really like.

Roasted Mate Chai - Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis), introduced to the world by the Guarani Indians of South America.  In South America, the morning and afternoon beverage of choice is Yerba Mate and not coffee. This drink will energize our body and bring many health benefits. Yerba Mate is known as the national drink of South American countries, and is consumed by millions of South Americans as a healthful alternative to coffee.

This delicious Yerba Mate Chai includes roasted yerba mate, ginger, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, and black pepper. When brewed this full body tea produces a spicy aromatic flavor.

This is a very rich and invigorating blend of tea that is quite different from black or green tea.  It becomes an afternoon treat when it is mixed with raw sugar and half-n-half.

Organic Slimming Oolong Tea - The slimming organic oolong tea comes from China. When brewed, this tea offers a smooth taste, nutty flavor, and a sweet lingering aftertaste. This tea is also great served chilled. Studies have shown that this tea has weight loss benefits.

This tea does taste good!  I usually like my tea sweetened with half-n-half, but this tea can stand on its own.  I am waiting for those weight loss benefits.  I hope to see those soon.

Earl Grey Black Tea - This tea is made from top grade orange pekoe Ceylon black tea scented with the elegant fragrance of bergamot. The Ceylon tea is grown at the altitude of 7000 feet above sea level from the Sri Lanka region. When brewed this tea produces a bright coppery color liquid with a piquant and refreshing taste.

Enjoy at any time, whether mid-morning or after dinner. Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with the oil from the citrus bergamot fruit - a sort of orange.

Both my husband and I like this Earl Grey tea.  It has the perfect amount of bergamot added - not too much but enough to give it that citrusy flavor that you crave in an Earl Grey.

This tea sampler was put together just for this review.  It is a wonderful sampler of so many different types of teas that are available at  If you wish to try any of the teas that I sampled, just click on the links above.  You will find that each and everyone of these teas are affordably priced. stands for “Affordable Luxurious Enjoyment”
