Village Tea Company Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

Winning comment is #117!
One of the things my bff Jessica and I love to do when we get together is tea drinking (it is actually considered an art and a common activity in Taiwan). We love trying new teas together (either at tea houses or at our homes). As such, when I received my package of teas from Village Tea Company, I had to try them with her.

Jessica is teaching Chinese at the local college, but she has more free time than the normal school year, so we have been able to get together to try tea more often too :). We were able to try Smooth Jasmine tea, Ginger Orange and Ginseng tea and Cherry Me Bloom tea.


After trying all three teas, we thought they were great, but our favorite was the Cherry Me Bloom tea -- seriously yummy! After a nice meal, we tried the tea with a nice berry pie and it was simply delicious. The tea was smooth (not bitter) with a sweet aroma. There are not many things as great as hanging out with with my best friend over a nice cup of tea that both of us enjoy.

We are very happy with the teas I received to review. I will be buying more tea from the Village Tea Company to try for sure. To buy your own teas, please go to Village Tea Company. If you buy 3 teas, you get 1 Mobile Teapot for free plus free S&H. What a great deal!

Many thanks to Village Tea Company. The company has generously offered 1 Mobile Teapot as well as one tea of winner's choice as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).
