What's your Choice?

On my very merry unbirthday I received an email from Choice Organic Teas. Being a lover of Tea, I took the opportunity review Choice Teas and I was absolutely glad I did!

My Review



Alright. I'll give some real examples. 

Growing up tea was a huge part of my life. My mom would help us girls plan tea parties, take us to tea rooms and just have fun with us. In my High School and early College days, I would enjoy a warm glass of tea most nights. (Peppermint was my favorite).  You might say it is one of my comfort foods. The Christmas before I moved to College my baby sister (who isn't really a baby.. she was like 16 at the time) gave me a  Cinderella Tea pot and my parents gave me a small tea pot with a cup on the bottom. It was so nice to have some comforts from home as I moved. 

Sadly when I moved, coffee was the evening drink of choice and I only enjoyed tea when sick or rare occasions at work. [insert sad face]

---FAST FORWARD TO 2010---

On a quiet evening in October my husband asked me over dinner if I would like to do for our Anniversary. We talked about a few things and then ... I said "Let's go to Disneyland". "LAND" - my husband clarified? After about 2 seconds of thinking it over, we were on the computer looking up plane tickets and hotels! haha, yeah ... we were excited! 

While we were there, my husband told me to pick something out to bring home. What did I pick out? 


So, clearly ... I love tea and when my package of Choice Teas came in the mail I was SO excited! I took a couple of types to work to enjoy and share with my co-workers (who loved the tea!!)
The Green Tea is my favorite for around 11:00 a.m. right before lunch I get REALLY hungry so i'll heat up a cup of tea and focus for 1 more hour until lunch! The thing I love most about the tea is it is so smooth and light that I am able to enjoy it plain and simple. No honey, no sugar just pure delicious warm green tea!

In the evenings I find myself enjoying some of the Chai teas. So far the Masala Chai has been my favorite! 

"We blend rich, robust black tea with masala spices for a spirited cup that warms your body and soul. It blends perfectly with milk and sweetener for an authentic chai".

Yes. Yes it does! In FACT my very dear Prince Charming has become obsessed with this tea. So thank you Choice Teas, you've brought tea back into our routine. 

I was also impressed with the price of the tea. Being budget conscious, I always like to check the price and availability of a product. Be sure to check out their website for more information about the products they offer!

[Disclaimer] I was given sample of Choice Teas in exchange for this post. The above opinions and memories are my very own.
