It’s Tuesday so that means today’s giveaway has to be something tea related, right? Feast your eyes on this beautiful tin of tea—accompanied with a lovely tea ball for steeping!
Today’s favorite thing giveaway is a lovely tin of tea (Island Green) from the Charleston Tea Plantation. I am also enclosing a tea ball to use to help steep your tea. You might recall that Chris and I had a nice visit to the tea plantation and I shared my visit here. It is such an amazing place and the tea—-oh the tea—-it is flavorful and fabulous so it was a no brainer to select this as the giveaway for Tuesday. There is plenty of tea in this 2.3 ounce time to have several pots of tea.
It’s very simple to enter. Leave a comment in the comment section saying why you would like to win today’s giveaway and you will be entered. Winners will be chosen by using a random number generator. At the same time you will be helping with Comments for a Cause for Bridges Mentoring—-our Cause for September. It is definitely a win win ! I will be announcing the winners to ALL of the giveaways on October 2nd. Please feel free to share with your friends by tweeting, posting on Facebook, Pinterest or sharing any way you would like to. Just click on the social media buttons below the post to share.
I did not receive any product or compensation for this product. I just really like it and want to give some away so YOU can like it, too!

I prefer hot tea over coffee…!
Yay! I have coffee in the morning usually but tea the rest of the day. Usually. But then just when you think you have me figured out I change it up. 🙂
Since I seldom drink tea, you can pull my name from the drawing. But how wonderful that you toured the tea plantation. My guess would be that tea is a much more Southern beverage than northern. Or have you met a lot of tea drinkers in Iowa?
I have met tea drinkers everywhere but the South has the market on sweet tea drinkers, that is for sure. I think tea is coming into vogue much more as a great alternative to coffee and there are so many different types that it is impossible to not find one to love.
I agree. Becoming much more in vogue. And I do drink the occasional cup of tea, although it’s been awhile.
How interesting! You know with all the plantations down South, I’ve never thought about a tea plantation before. I think I will just google and try to find one.
They “claimed” they were the only one in the US but there are some other ones in the North West I think And by now there might be more in the South as well.
I love tea (and coffee)! My mother has always been a tea drinker. On my bucket list is to go with with my mom to Victoria, Canada, and have tea. I have done high tea at the Biltmore House twice and it is among my most favorite memories.
You definitely need to do that bucket list item. Chris took me to tea at the Fairmont Empress and it was fabulous. There is a picture in this post about ithttp://bethannchiles.com/2012/07/22/back-in-the-usa-2/
With the abundance of tobacco plantations in the south, I’ve never even given thought that tea plantations existed; guess my head has been buried in the sand! Now that fall is here it’s tea time for me. I drink much more of it as the cool creeps up on us.
Fall does seem to be tea weather, doesn’t it? I switch from iced to hot !!
Tea by candlelight!
That’s a winner!
This kind IS very yummy!!!
Does it have caffeine?
With a green tea it should not but the container does not specifically state caffeine free. I will do some research….
It probably does if it doesn’t say “No Caffeine”
Yep–the info says 25-50 mgs (I am sure depending on how much and how strong you brew it). From their site: Whether you brew by the cup or the pot, tea lovers will enjoy the subtle nuances and fresh-from-the-farm flavor of full leaf loose American Classic Teas. Island Green Mint pairs a delightful blend of spearmint flavor with our American Classic Green Tea to delight both mint lovers and tea lovers alike. 2.3 oz. of premium green tea.
Sounds yummy for sure. I can’t have caffeine though. I’m always happy to do comments for a cause. If I were to win, like you said, I can give it. 🙂
Tea ball? Isn’t that what the little kids play before they get to live pitching?
Yuck yuck yuck!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You are so very welcome.
That’s pretty cool – touring a tea plantation! I toured a coffee one when I was in Jamaica. I love tea because you can brew it to your liking; that’s why one of those ball strainers and using loose tea is the best way to go!
I was thinking of you today because my Coffee Chat topic was about Collections/things we collect — and of course I thought of all your lovely teapots. 🙂
I am so bad about popping over to Coffee Chat. 🙁 Not that I don’t want to—just always am behind on all my blog reading these days. Will make it a priority and yes–I do have a collection. 🙂
Oh, my favorite thing – tea! I don’t drink coffee (like the aroma but not the taste) and as you know, I collect teapots like you. I don’t think I even knew that there was a tea plantation here. Got to check that out!
You have such great ideas! I am entering because … I don’t have a tea ball! I always use tea bags. I did plant peppermint this year and would love to try steeping the freshly dried leaves. 🙂
Oh my, you are picking the most wonderful things to give away. Island green tea sounds so yummy. Who ever wins this will be lucky indeed! In the meantime I will continue to sip on my Mojito Mint Green Tea.
You have given me enough tea to last a lifetime so I hope someone lucky gets this gift:) I think my favorites from your stash so far are any of the varieties with jasmine.
I do love jasmine tea. It just makes me smile when I brew it and drink it.
I blogged about you and your give-aways. http://darlenefoster.wordpress.com/2014/09/24/life-is-too-short/ Hope that was OK.
You are so sweet! Of course it is okay. The more the merrier!
i love this, I don’t even know how to make tea yet that contraption makes me want to learn. Very cool.
Free lessons would come with the tea if you win. 🙂 Or Jeni can help you—she is a pro at tea making!
I’d love to win it for my boyfriend. He loves loose leaf tea and I need a birthday present for him!
Thanks for stopping by, Ally! Good luck! It would make the perfect gift!
Tea for Tuesday–perfect! We’ll be heading south next month, and a stop at the plantation is on our agenda. I’d still love to win, though. 😉
I hope you love the plantation as much as I did! It really was a fun visit and all the tea tasting you can stand!!!!
I love loose leaf tea. This is so cool that it is made in SC.
Heather—it is a nice tea and the plantation is a really fun place to visit with a lot of history. And FREE tea!!! Woo hoo!
Woo hoo. Two lumps please. Fun giveaway on your special day.
Thanks, Katybeth!!! I will be back with you shortly….I hope. It’s been a crazy week.
LOVE cinnamon tea in the winter!
Yum! Sounds really good even on a fall day.
I love tea but I’ve never tried it loose. I hear it’s a lot better than in a bag. Will have to brave up and try it loose sometime. 🙂
Loose is really better, IMHO. I know someone who can hook you up—-just saying.
I would like tea because coffee makers aren’t allowed in dorms, but I can easily brew a cup of tea! 🙂
I can’t believe you can’t have a coffee maker—you can have a hot pot, right?? Or do you have a microwave? I guess I am old school and thinking hot pot was what we used back in the day. 🙂 Miss you!
I would love to try this brand of tea (typing as I sit here with a cup of hot Great Earth tea).
Oh wonderful! Thanks for stopping by and entering with your comment. Tea is all good, right? Good luck!
Tea always makes me feel better, and I could use that right now.
I would be happy to make a cup for you–or two or three!!!
