#379 – Tea(se) Your Taste Buds + a Giveaway

I was prowling the house; I wanted chocolate or at least something sweet. NOW!

The cupboards were purposely bereft of such tempting treats. I knew that I had to tempt my taste buds with something. What, though?

Then, I remembered my pickle trick; but I wasn't in the mood for pickles.

I did say I was on the prowl, didn't I? Well, I opened my herbal & decaffeinated tea tin and there it was - the perfect thing to distract me from my cravings.

Decaffeinated Chai Spice by Stash Tea. It has enough flavour to excite my taste buds and at the same time, kill the craving for something sweet. Thanks to Nancy for introducing this tea to me!

Now, here's the fun part. I wrote to Stash Tea to see if they could tea(se) your taste buds. They have generously agreed to giveaway one Chai Tea sampler pack with a variety of Chai Teas!

  1. Tea is the signal to my family that all I need in the world is comfort ~ that little bound bundle with its flag resting against the edge of my favorite cup. If they see me with a cup of tea, they know I’m taking care of myself, body and spirit.

  2. Tea is not only soothing and relaxing as a drink but it can also be an excellent facial steamer; all you need to do is place your face in front of a steaming pot of tea (with a towel) for about 15 minutes and your pores will have been cleansed… You can then add on a facial mask (a crushed banana will work) and your skin will feel soft and refreshed 🙂

  3. Well, this was fun! It’s evident that for many, tea is so much more than a “drink with toast and jam”. 🙂

    I’m pleased to announce that Karen is the winner of the giveaway for the Stash Tea sample pack.

    Thanks to all of you for supporting this giveaway; your participation has encouraged me to seek out other giveaways.

  4. Good Morning, I am very happy with the sampling of Stash Tea. They sent 5 different kinds of Chai tea. Green, Spice, Black, Epice and White. The boys and I had never had Chai tea so it was a little different but it is growing on us.
    Thank you Stash Tea and Thank you to Marianna!

    1. Hi Karen,
      I once read somewhere that it takes our taste buds at least 10 times before they get used to a new flavour. It seems to be the case here since you say it is growing on you. 🙂
