***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO TAMELA HILL! SHE IS THE WINNER OF THIS GIVEAWAY!***
This week I am giving away a package of Ninja Chicken’s Summer Breezes Tea Blend. I recently had this lovely tea blend and it is a wonderfully relaxing tea time blend, perfect for relaxing on a hot, summer afternoon or in the evening before bedtime.
Summer Breezes is part of Maria’s Tea of the Month club and comes with its own muslin tea bag.
About the Tea of the Month club:
A cup of tea is full of so many emotions. Is there any wonder that the ceremony of having tea goes back over 1300 years? There is something very special about the simple act of sipping herbs infused in hot water.
For those who join in on Maria’s Tea of the Month club, at the start of each month receive 2 ounces of her newest blend of herbal teas. Often the blends are coordinated with the seasons. Sometimes she will have the urge to concoct something new and delicious. Either way, you will be enveloped in luscious aromas and flavors when you sip your monthly blend.
The first month’s tea will ship when you place your order and includes information on making herbal teas, infusions, and decoctions. **The three month club will include a large, reusable muslin tea bag to use when steeping your herbs. ** The six month club includes the muslin tea bag and a ceramic spoon/tea bag rest. **The 12 month club also includes a stainless steel decorative infuser with suns, moons, and stars etched along the rim along with the muslin bag and ceramic spoon rest. Each month you will also get to learn a bit about the culinary, medicinal, and traditional uses of some of the herbs that are in your blend.
For more information on joining her Tea of the Month club, head to her etsy shop.
