Tea review & A giveaway

Two weeks ago I received a package from Celestial Seasoning

It was part of a “wellness kit” that they’ve created for the “flu” season. It included: Four wellness teas to ease  symptoms associated with the cold and flu including Sleepytime Extra, Echinacea Complete Care and Tummy Mint and Two green teas to support a healthy immune system year round – Authentic Green Tea and Honey Lemon Ginseng Green Tea.

I tried all of them and my favorites are Tummy Mint and AM Detox. I really like them because they’re rich in aroma and smooth in taste. Since I’ve been wanting to cut down my caffeine intake, these caffeine free teas are satisfying my hot drink craving. I’d probably drink 2-3 bags of different tea everyday.

Do you get “flu” in this season? I personally am fairly “insensitive” and don’t get flu often. But for those of you who do, here are some teas that might help.

Seasonal discomforts keeping you down? You can trust delicious, all-natural Celestial Seasonings teas to help foster everyday wellness as part of your balanced, healthy lifestyle. The selection of recommended herbs, teas and other foods provided below can help you find great-tasting natural relief for your symptoms.

  1. I adore tea.
    Specially green tea, but I also like herbal tea, like chamomile, peppermint, lemon grass, rooibos.
    My favorite is one combination of different herbal teas that is perfect for relaxation. After drinking it, I sleep like a baby 🙂

  2. yay! what a great giveaway! my favorite tea is actually celestial seasoning’s blueberry breeze green tea. i love the hint of blueberry in it!

  3. Oh I LOVE tea! I never drink coffee but tea is like my crack. It’s hard to pick a fave one though. I prefer green tea with my breakfast and ginger tea after lunch. In between I heart some sweet chili and rooibos tea but I like switching things up and have a HUGE tea stash.
    Can people from overseas participate too? This giveaway sounds heavenly!
