Tea Gallerie Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have the pleasure once again to review a few teas from Tea Gallerie and would love to tell you about them today! I got to review 2 teas this time:
1.)  Gunpowder (which is a green tea)
2.)  Blueberry Dream (which is a caffeine free tea)
Now,  I have to admit, I love green tea and when I find one that I really like, I will stick to it if at all possible.  Gunpowder is one such tea. It is almost like Jasmine Pearls but not as big or neat looking but it does the same thing. Organic gunpowder green tea is a special tea rolled in the shape of a gunpowder pellet.  If you are into teas that have a this smokey taste to their flavor, then this is the tea for you!
For me, this tea comes the closest to what I think the finer dining Chinese restaurants have. I am sure it's not the same tea, but it sure is close enough. Oh, and one more thing, since they didn't look as big as the Jasmine Pearls, I made the mistake of putting too much in my tea seeping cup and I got a really dark tea that required just a little more sugar than what I like to put in my tea because I had to balance it out! So, use very little for one cup as it expands ALOT when you more the hot water on the tea leaves to soak! 
Now, the next one that I got to try was the Blueberry Dreams. It is a really like, sweet tasting tea to me.  Actually, Tea Gallerie has it listed under their Dessert Tea Main Menu so if you want to browse that section, that is where you will find teas in the same category as this one. It is their single-estate South African Organic Rooibos that is known for its distinctive red color and they blend it with blueberries and flowers to make this a dreamy herbal treat!
I drink my tea's mostly at night while everyone goes to sleep and I have the house to myself and will either sit down and read a book or get on the computer and do my reviews/giveaways or read emails. They come at an alarming rate of 200 to 300 a day and it takes up alot of time. So, I have gotten into the habit of having to skip alot of the newsletters or I would never get anything done!  I know one day I missed checking them and by the time I did the next night there were almost 500, and that is just too crazy!
Can you see what they were talking about with the smooth redness and then the touch of blue in there also? That reminds me of Lavender! That is also another good tea to try sometime also.
Gosh, Tea Gallerie has a large selection of teas to choose from that it would be hard to list them all here, so I hope that you will you take the time to browse thru it all and see all the wonderful sounding teas that they have to offer.
Their selection ranges from black teas to green, white, herbal, oolong, herbal, pu-erth, mate, kid's teas, pregnancy teas and his & hers teas. So, there is a little something for everyone. I have done really extensive reviews in the past on Tea Gallerie and if you want to read more in depth about them use the search box on my site and just type in their name and you will get to re-read some of the past ones.
I will be reviewing 4 more teas in the weeks to come because they are putting 2 bags each in both giveaways so you haven't seen the last of them yet! They truly do have some of the most selective and fragrant tea that I have ever had, so you can't go wrong on this company when you want a tea that has something extra special for yourself or for guests after dinner!

Tea Gallerie also sells a scone mix that they say is to die for along with all kinds of tea pots and tea accessories to make your drinking hot tea or iced tea the best possible experience. I hope you go and look around to see what you might like either in the teas themselves or the tea pots and accessories!
