Boston Tea Company Review and Giveaway!

I am a big tea drinker. I love the taste- My favorite tea being Green Tea. I know, a ton of people hate green tea. You really have to aquire a taste for it- but I absolutely LOVE it.

So when I got the opportunity to try out Boston Tea Company's tea, I was just thrilled! I love trying new teas an different flavors- so Boston Tea Company was nice enough to send me a few samples of tea to try out.

Peppermint Candy Cane Black Tea
Raspberry Green Tea
Minty Mint Green Tea 
Blueberry White Tea
Bombay Chai Rooibos

Don't they just sound delicious! Just the combinations alone sound yummy.

Before I get into the reviews of the Tea- here is a little bit about Boston Tea Company!

"The Boston Tea Company began during the historic Boston Tea Party, when our founders salvaged crates of undamaged tea from Boston Harbor in 1773.  Now, over 200 years later, we have successfully fused Old World with New! Our prized teas originate in the lush plantations of Sri Lanka and the mountainous regions of India and China.

They are hand-picked at the peak of perfection and processed by artisans using traditional Old World techniques, before delicately blending them to assure the most flavorable tasting teas.

With tea perceived as today's healthy beverage of choice, the Boston Tea Company has become a leading purveyor of the highest quality teas, appreciated by connoisseurs around the world.

Our master tea blenders travel the globe to seek the finest teas, the rarest herbs, and the most exotic spices for our superior Boston Tea products."

Feel free to go and check out their site! They have such an assortment of teas that can suit everyone's tastes.

Now. On to my favorites.

I normally am not a Blueberry person. Don't know why- I usually just stay clear of anything Blueberry flavored.

The Blueberry White tea was one of my favorite samples. The aroma first got me- it was so soothing and relaxed me instantly. It wasn't overpowering- it was just enough. Once I started drinking it I was instantly hooked. It is delicious.

With every sip you just get a hint of blueberry- which is so refreshing it keep you wanting more and more.

My other favorite out of the bunch was the Raspberry Green Tea.


This tea has an even lighter aroma and taste of Raspberry then the Blueberry tea. I had this tea at night to relax me. It was perfect. 

I would recommend the Raspberry Green Tea for someone who is JUST starting to get into drinking Green Tea- or already loves it. Great for both! 

It has a nice flavor to it-- and when you are just starting to drink Green Tea, I feel a lot of people think it is too harsh. With the Raspberry incorporated in it makes it a little easier to handle. Personally- I love the taste of Green Tea with or without flavor- this Raspberry Green Tea really hit the spot for me.

The thing I love most about this tea is the way the teabags were made. I have never seen this and wish I could capture a picture of me doing this. I'll do my best to explain...

The string of the tea bag is inside the bag itself. You pull it out and voilla- ready to steep. I've only ever seen teabags where the string is wrapped around the outside. I thought this was so original- I loved it! Now, you may think I'm nuts and you always see this- but I never have so I thought it was fabulous!
