I can’t imagine life without tea.

Thankfully I have no need to, but it really is something that I enjoy every single day. I drink tea throughout the morning, day and evening. And for so many reasons. I drink tea because it’s comforting, it’s full of antioxidants, to relax, for caffeine, to help me feel better, to keep me warm, to stop mindless munching and because I just plain like it!

Which is why I’m excited to announce that I’ll be moderating a Celestial Seasonings Tea Time Tweetup next week and I would love for you to join!

RSVP to the Tweetup and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a case of Gen Mai Cha Green Tea! The Gen Mai Cha Green Tea is a special one – and I just love the story behind it. It has a very distinct toasted rice flavor, which sounds a little odd, but is actually very satisfying.

“Green tea was scarce in postwar Japan, so peasant farmers added toasted brown rice to extend their supplies. Today, Gen Mai Cha (or “brown rice tea”) is enjoyed around the world. Our version combines antioxidant-rich green tea, nutty toasted rice and a traditional powdered green tea called matcha to create a delicious blend suitable for everyone – rich or poor.” —Charlie Baden, Celestial Seasonings Blendmaster Since 1975

Tweetup Details:

February 22nd

9:00 pm EST

RSVP today!



Celestial Seasonings has also offered one reader the opportunity to win a sample of Decaf Sleepytime Lemon Jasmine Green Tea, Celestial Seasonings Honey Sticks, Lip Balm and a Tea Caddy. Simply “Like” them on Facebook or “Follow” them on Twitter and leave me a comment letting me know you did so! I’ll choose the winner next Tuesday after the Tweetup!


Edited to Add: Congratulations #3, Holly! Random.org picked you!

    I hate tea! Hahaha! But I’m the only person I know who doesn’t like tea, so I’m just strange I guess. Actually, all I actually like to drink is water. My mom likes Celestial tea too.
