In the past few months I have been come something of a tea snob, I'm afraid. I'm a huge fan of Republic of Tea and drink their blends exclusively. I haven't tried one that I haven't liked.
I was excited to see their new Christmas teas, especially the Gingerbread (it's fantastic) and the Peppermint Bark.
In the past I have been a fan of their Peppermint Cuppa Chocolate (I'm still a fan) but I wasn't sure how different the Peppermint Bark would be from the other. Republic of Tea offered to send me a sample of Peppermint Bark and I appreciated the chance to compare! I am almost astonished (though why I shouldn't be, I'm not sure) to say that the Peppermint Bark is quite different from the Peppermint Cuppa. The Peppermint Bark tastes exactly like candy. It's like sipping calorie-free christmas bark. What's to complain about? This tea is delicious!
I have served this to quite a few of my friends lately and it has been enjoyed to a person. Therefore I'm delighted to have the opportunity, thanks to Republic of Tea, to send a sample tin to one of you.
This is an herbal green rooibos tea. The ingredients list is as follows: organic green rooibos, organic peppermint, organic cocoa extract, organic vanilla flavor, organic stevia leaf and natural flavor. There are 36 natural, unbleached tea bags included in the tin for your enjoyment.
I trust you and yours will enjoy it. I'm sipping a cup of it as I type this post up, in fact. It's the perfect tea to celebrate the holidays with.
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER, as selected by Random.org, is #1 - Heather! CONGRATS!
Many thanks to Republic of Tea for offering a sample to one of my readers here at Reading to Know.
Additional note: Republic of Tea's blends can be purchased locally but I've found that it's cheaper to place orders when they run their Free Shipping specials. I order enough at a time to tide me over until the next special runs. However, if you are interested in ordering limited quantities, they are now offering a flat rate shipping fee which is indeed helpful!
