Enjoying Tea Review and Giveaway Ends 4/18/15



Over the past few years, Happy husband and I have begun drinking hot tea more than ever before. Mike doesn't like coffee and I tend to drink too much of it.  Tea seemed a nice balance for both of us.

Did you know, I didn't have a tea pot? Nope. Just a tea kettle and a handful of miscellaneous tea bags that I had.acquired.

Cruising the web not long ago, I came across a tea company that piqued my interest: Enjoying Tea.  They have the most amazingly varied teas and tea-related items.  I know I spent two hours there looking (and dreaming) about the gorgeous tea setstea bagstea cups, and more.




I contacted the company and they very generously offered to let me review one of their tea sets and a variety of their delicious teas! BLISS!




So many to choose from! It was a truly difficult choice.  I looked for a couple of days, but I always came back to this beautiful Blue with Gold Dragon Phoenix Cast Iron Tea Set.  I love cast iron. From skillets to pans to baking sheets, I love the heaviness and the durability.
This high quality cast iron tea set is the perfect companion for enjoying tea. The traditional dragon and phoenix design symbolizes strength, power, and good fortune in Asian culture. This tea set is made from sturdy iron and has enamel coating on the interior to prevent rusting. Cast ironware heats evenly and retains heat well and is praised worldwide for their beauty, strength, and superb quality. Please note that this cast iron teapot should not be used directly on stove tops to heat water.







During the mid 19th century as infused tea drinking became more popular in Japan, Tetsubin or iron cast teapot evolved from being a kitchen item to being a status symbol used to serve tea. Many nobles cherish their teapots as treasures and are kept in the family for generations.

This set includes the following:






1 teapot (approximate capacity: 650 ml or 22.1 fl oz)
2 teacups (approximate dimension: 3 1/8" dia, 2 1/4" ht)
1 removable stainless tea filter
1 trivet (approximate dimension: 6 1/4" dia)







The removable, reusable stainless tea filter is a great addition (and unexpected).  It makes the brewing of the tea so much easier!

Below, you'll see the trivet. Look at the details of the dragon -- superb!







Next, of course, I had to choose the tea and THAT really was a challenge!  Now, I am a big fan of 
Darjeeling Black Tea but I wanted to try something new. Happy Husband and I both like Green tea, so I decided to focus my attentions there.






I finally decided, since Spring is here, to try the fruit flavoured green tea sampler!

This is the perfect tea sampler for people who want to try our fine quality fruit flavored green tea at an affordable price. This Tea Sampler includes 6 samples of our Fruit Flavored Green Tea. You will get between 0.9 oz and 1.2 oz per sample, depending on the leaf size of the tea. Each tea each will come in its own square tin canister, which will all be housed in a presentable, decorative box. This Sampler Set is perfect for gift giving.



Tea varieties include:

Mango Green Tea
Strawberry Green Tea
Lemon Green Tea
Apple Green Tea
Lichee Jasmine Green Tea
Cherry Rose Kyoto Sencha



These teas are scrumptious... delicious... enticing... it takes drinking tea to a higher level of enjoyment. 

The kind folks at Enjoying Tea have generously offered one of my readers to opportunity to win a Smart Tea Maker

If I was fortunate to win it would be a surprise and opportunity to invite my potential in-laws over for tea. Well, the answer to your question would be either the White Angel New Bone China Tea Set with Cup Hanger as it would help make me organized.(If I wanted to surely impress them I'd have to go with Chinese Dragon Porcelain Tea Set.) But I know that 1st impressions last the longest and this would mean the world to me.
