Birthday Cake Tea

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

My friend Jo of White Roses and Coffee sent me the nicest Happy Birthday gift :) It was a parcel from Davids Tea, filled with organic & specialty teas, a teapot, matching cups, organic agave honey, tea filter bags and mug. I was in awe as I took each item out of the box. I think I'm still in shock! HaHaHa I've only had a chance to try one tea and it is bliss. It's called Birthday Cake! Oh boy. Not only does it taste good, but it smells and looks good. I have never seen a loose tea with candy sprinkles in it! It's so pretty (see picture below). The scent is delicious. ALL of these teas, smell so good! There's also a card that explains each tea. They have some wonderful health benefits! I've never really dabbled with loose teas, because I didn't have the proper "equipment" to brew them (now I do...THANKS JO). I don't think I'll ever go back to bags (ground tea), after trying these. HaHaHa Loose tea seems so much FRESHER! The tea set that was included is just gorgeous and when you add hot tea to the mug, the scene on it changes from NIGHT to DAY! How amazing is that? Jo, I can't properly put into words, how much I appreciate this gift. I'm still in awe. This gift has educated me on loose tea and overall has taught me so much. Your generosity and thoughtfulness to me was very kind. I'm truly humbled and touched by this. Thank You So Much! I just want to add, that blogging has been the best thing that could've ever happened to me. Bloggers (and Companies) I've never met, have been nicer to me and helped me more than people I've known for years! I am very thankful and grateful. Jo, I cherish our FRIENDship.

That birthday cake tea sounds like a great idea, and it looks so sweet! Nice twist to a standard tea! :)

I think the relationships are a great part of blogging too, you smile when you see a bloggy friend's name pop up in your comment box. Yours being one of them of course my dear! :)

How sweet of her Kim! The teas sound so good, especially the first you tried, bday cake. Being a huge tea lover I now wanted to try them so bad, you are right, loose tea is better and seems fresher too, Ive noticed the same. I want that mug too now, how cute, never seen a similar one that change lol how fun! Kim, you are the most friendly and sweetest bloggers, lots of love to you! xo

Aww how sweet is Jo?! That mug is unbelievably cool as well! It's so great that the tea is delicious. Loose teas are definitely the best teas but I'm so lazy about brewing them that they would go bad. I still enjoy them once in a while though!

What a wonderful gift for Jo to send you! Davidstea is definitely my go-to shop for loose tea, they have so many fun varieties and there always seems to be something new. I've never tried the birthday cake kind - chocolate macaroon is my favourite - but it looks so fun with the sprinkles!
xox,
Cee

Ashley said...

Oh wow that's an amazing gift Kim! And those mugs are so cute!! I would much rather have loose tea also, but like you said I don't have the right stuff to make it with!! But birthday cake tea sounds amazing!

Oh gosh, that is such a lovely gift, Kim and Jo is such a sweetheart! Love the tea set, I'm not a tea drinker and yet I find that gift to be just perfect.

As a tea lover, I must say this is a wonderful gift! Usually I prefer loose tea than the one in a bag. Glad to see you are happy with blogging, Kim!

What a nice gift, so sweet of your friend! The tea cup set is so cute. I prefer loose tea leaves over tea bags too, but I hate the clean up afterwards :)

Hi Kim, blogging friends are the best! I love your tea gift your friend gave you. How generous and thoughtful of her. I love loose tea and I make loose green tea. Loose tea is the best and fresh and healthy. I love the tea pot and cups that change from night to day. Enjoy everything.

David's Tea has come up with so many different tea products now. Enjoy your gift Kim.

jo said...

Awww Kim, this post really touched my heart. I'm so happy that you enjoy everything and that everything was intact. I honestly was thinking about sending you something "different" this year. You must have tons of beauty products and I was happening to drink tea one day and decided, "why not get you some teas". That's my favourite mug, the one that changes colour, it's so pretty! Kim, you really inspire me to become a better and responsible blogger. No words can describe how grateful I am. Btw, did you receive the birthday card? It wasn't anything fancy, but I just love the words on it. Enjoy the beautiful weather!

Wow Kim, this is truly such a thoughtful gift and I've been drinking more and more tea so this looks delicious. I love the packaging too and you've inspired me to buy some cuter mugs! We have plain white ones and a really tacky one from Vegas lol. Tea mugs should be classy and cute like yours'!

What a fantastic and thoughtful gift! Wow... And teas aside, that mug is so much fun! x

Ivana Split said...

What a lovely gift! I love loose tea and I almost never use tea bags. Organic tea is the best! It is also great when there is something extra in the tea to make it a bit different. When I read there are candy sparkles in the Birthday tea you got, there was a smile on my face, because I was thinking- that's just perfect for you. I know that you are like myself someone who enjoys sweet:)

I totally get what you say about blogging...for me chatting online with all these wonderful bloggers and getting to know more about all of you beautiful people is really precious. I really appreciate the comments I get and I'll be the first to admit that are what keeps me blogging!

Recently, I also got some tea from a friend in Italy. She doesn't blog anymore but we message each other everyday and our friendship has continued regardless.

Thank you for sharing this review.
