  • I am so excited to start a new way of drinking, by that I mean changing from coffee to tea. I received my cranberry orange spice tea and let me tell you, the aroma from the can was a refreshing treat. The smell of cranberries, oranges, apples and ginger just made my tastebuds tingle for a cup of freshly steeped tea. Just like I like it!

  • I received my tea last night. I ordered Season Greetings. I couldn’t wait to make a cup this morning. O my goodness, it was absolutely amazing. I have never tasted tea that was so delicious. It was bursting with flavors that complimented each so well. I didn’t even have to add any sweetener. I am so looking forward to my next cup as well as my next order !!!!
