Golden Moon Tea Review and Giveaway DEAD


I contacted Golden Moon Tea because I wanted to do a review of their products, I was delighted when they agreed to send me a tin of earl grey tea to try. I am not a huge tea drinker ,unless it is raspberry, but both my husband and mother in law are. When I say they are tea drinkers I mean we have on cupboard with three shelves stacked full of tea. Anyways I figured they would love it and I would try it. Well let me replay the day I recieved the tea to try.

It was a cold dreary day here in Tennessee. I was all bundled up with a baby in tow. I left the house,  picked up the mail(threw it in passenger seat without looking at it), picked up my mother in law from work and my son from school, then headed home. I was was freezing that evening and sat down cuddled up under a blanket to go through the mail. I had several packages and one happened to be my tin of earl grey tea. I opened the package and opened the tin..... WOW the scent was love at first smell. Citrus and lavendar hit me begging to be mixed into a warm tea kettle. We steeped the tea in a diffuser for 3 minutes per directions. I added 1 pack of pure cane sugar, took a sip and fell in love! We forgot to take the diffuser out and 10 minutes later I poured my second cup. It was very strong and the lavender was very prominent. I added my one pack of sugar as well as some milk; I feel in love again.

 I am pleased to say This tea was a huge hit at my house. I have since made one pot a night and enjoy it as I wind down for the evening. (The caffeine amount is medium so if it effects you then you may not want to drink it in the evening.) This tea is loose tea leaves and needs to be used in a diffuser. I loved how the leaves are not so small they come out in my tea either. I look forward to trying other products by Golden Moon Tea very soon. I will also say this tin will last quite a while even with regular usage. It only takes a small amount to make a pot; so for the length of life as well as flavor I feel this tea is an exceptional value.
