Kally Tea {Review & Giveaway}


Recently I got the opportunity to partner with Kally Tea for a review and giveaway. I was so excited because 1) I am an avid tea drinker 2) I bought a new teapot with an infuser built in and 3) 2 lucky readers will win a Kally Tea product!


Kally Tea is a wonderful loose leaf tea business began by Chip and Sally. When I viewed the website I was amazed by the variety of products! They offer a selection of whites, greens, oolongs, rooibos, blacks, flavored, tisanes, and Chai teas. Along with a wide selection, Kally Tea gives the customer a chance to gain knowledge regarding the history of tea, tips of how to create a perfect brew of tea and tea tasting terms. Even if you are an avid tea drinker you can learn something new! For example, now I know what the term astringency means :)


With hundreds of flavors to choose from you are bound to find your perfect cup of tea. One of the best parts of tea are the health benefits associated with it.  

Some benefits of drinking tea include:

-anti cancer benefits
-aids weight loss
-increased energy and alertness 
-boosts metabolism
-stronger immune system 
-promotes fresh breath
-aids peaceful sleep  
 
 
The teas that I reviewed were Jasmine Phoneix Eyes, White Bubbly Berry, Cehlon Lover's Leap, Early Grey, and Mango Tango Mate. They were all so delicious in there own way but my favorite was Mango Tango Mate. With the mindset I have now, "bring on the sun", it really lifted my spirits! What I enjoy about the loose leaf products is the fact that the favor is so fresh. The quality of brewed tea is more flavorful than if typical tea bags. I loved the Mango Tango Mate because all the ingredients could be distinct tasted and at the same time they all blended wonderful together!
If you haven't tried loose leave tea, please do! I enjoy it the most at night when I have time to sit down with my favorite mug and a hot teapot :)  Whether it's to relax and wined or get a boost there is a tea for it.

  101. COLA CHAI

    Product Number:
    4012
    Description:
    Okay all you cola lovers out there; this is what you have been looking for. A great healthy alternative to carbonated cola drinks. This chai starts off with a Rooibos base, then we mix ginger root, cinnamon, green cardamom and a hint of vanilla flavor. Excellent either brewed with water alone or in the traditional Chai method. What a divine substitute.

    Ingredients: Rooibos, Ginger Root, Cinnamon, Green Cardamom, and Cinnamon, Ginger and Vanilla Flavor.

  109. I starTed looking around on the kally tea site so I could tell you which one id really like to try but every time I went to another page I saw soemthing else I wanted to try....lol. I just picked two that stuck out which were the papaya tea and the SHENG GREEN PU ER tea. Both sound amazing. I recently tried a papaya tea from another company for it's health benefits and loved it so when I saw kally had a papaya, I knew I had to try it. I also absolutely love green tea so picked the sheng green pu er. There are so many others that I'd love to try as well and may even be another that if like to try even more than these but I stopped looking because I kept changing my mind..lol as I kept seeing more and more I was interested in. Thank you for the opportunity to win!
