Hey guys! Happy Saturday! I’m sipping here sipping matcha tea, compliments of The Republic of Tea.
[Boring full disclosure: The Republic of Tea sends me free shipments of tea and tea accessories every month for a few months. All opinions are my own and I'll tell you guys what I really think about the products.]
They recently contacted me about joining their Tea Team and was super excited for a couple reasons.
- I love tea.
- I love The Republic of Tea products but I’m cheap and usually wouldn’t shell out the money for them, even though they aren’t that pricey when you calculate a per cup price.
- I really like the Sip by Sip rather than Gulp by Gulp lifestyle they promote as one of their key brand messages. I think it’s a good reminder to sit and savor whatever you are doing, whether it’s drinking tea, reading a book, enjoying a good meal, drinking wine, or going on a walk. Sip by Sip, to me, means that you take in everything you do doing at that moment and enjoy the present – not trying to rush and get on to the next thing.
Since I’ve been drinking the tea they’ve sent me, I’ve realized how much better it is than the generic brand tea I’d been drinking previously. Last month I got some white tea, black tea, green tea and hibiscus tea. The green was a solid good basic green and the hibiscus was really rich – loved it!
But my favorite is the white tea – seriously it’s unbelievable. I’ve already gone through the container they sent me and bought another.
I wasn’t a big fan of their black tea with peach, but I must be an exception because its one of their best sellers and many people commented on Instagram how much they love this tea. Maybe it’s the peach flavor that’s not my thing? I dunno.
I use a lot of loose-leaf tea at home, but at work sometimes I’m running between meetings and don’t have time to go through all the loose-leaf prep and clean-up so the individual satchels are perfect for me.
Stay tuned for another post next week about The Republic of Tea and their latest shipment to me. There’s a little perk for you too!
What’s your favorite kind of tea? Black? Green? Loose leaf? Satchel?
Ok, now I’m off to get some things done before a super fun activity this afternoon. I’m meeting up with Lori & Michelle from Purely Twins. yay! I haven’t seen Michelle in almost a year and it’s been almost two years since I’ve seen Lori when we all went to the Tanglewood Wine Festival.
