Tea Gallerie Set of 2 Teas Sponsor Spotlight Review

You are gonna love both of these teas from Tea Gallerie! My all time favorite tea of course, is Earl Grey and Tea Gallerie has several different versions of it but this one, the Almond Earl Grey is among one of my top favorites. Gosh, there are so many teas at Tea Gallerie it would take forever for me to go thru them all!  We have been testing now for a few months and still don't have all of the teas! Isn't that amazing that there would be that many kinds of tea? It blows my mind sometimes. 
They have added something that I did not see before and that is a group of teas for children. The tea's will be a line of caffeine-free, sugar-free and calorie-free herbal tisanes that support a healthy start for kids and offers and alternative to all sugary juices and soda.  Look at the cute little tins they will come in like this one which is Rose Parade! Just wanted to mention that real quick before I forgot.
What can I say about the Almond Earl Grey tea other than it's one of those that will be among your favorite's for years to come. If you love the taste of almonds, then this one will be your very best favorite! This tea has a nutty like taste because of the almond flavors mixed in with the French Vanilla. This is a nice after dinner tea served with a dessert. I loved this one also, but I pretty much am prejudice when it comes to Earl Greys. But, I think you want to drink this one whenever you get the craving for something sweet but without the calories!

I have always drank tea, even before I knew that there was such a thing as flavors and gourmet teas and all of that. I can remember my Grandmother up in West Virginia would fix me a cup of hot tea, shoot, I don't even know what it was really. Probably just a plain old black tea, I am sure. But, I grew up drinking hot tea and never thought much about it. That is why I think I was in my late 30's when I started drinking coffee and that was only because the guys who worked in the office wanted a cup as soon as they walked thru the door so I started drinking it with them.  It took me awhile to get used to it. 

I still have phases where I won't touch coffee for months on end and then boom, it's back. But with tea, I might skip a day or two here and there but I usually get one cup in at least every day if not more. I know this will sound backwards but I do most of my hot tea drinking at night, epecially after everyone has gone to bed and I want to read or have to get a review out, I will sip on tea while I do my work.

Have you ever drank Peppermint Tea? It is exactly how it sounds and if you have ever chewed Peppermint Gum, then it is just like that. Not much fanfare about straight Peppermint, not a whole lot of dressing up can be done with Peppermint Tea because if you mess with it, then it no longer is just Peppermint Tea, it becomes something else. So, unless you really like Peppermint, I would stay away from this one, because it is a true 100% peppermint like taste of a piece of chewing gum. This is one of those flavors I can leave it or drink it. It is not a tea I would purposedly buy for myself but I can drink it if given as a gift but I can't say that it is a favorite. Of course, I am not much on peppermint gum either!

I would love to get these to give as gifts, since I really don't drink tea.. I have so many friends who do drink it and know they would love these!

Again, I'm not a tea fan but it would be a great gift for someone who likes tea. :)

I love teas and these sounds great. I'm really interested in the kid friendly products; I'll have to check those out.

I love trying out new and different teas. I confess I am a serious coffee drinker but sometimes it's nice to curl up in my chair with a good book and an awesome hot cup of tea! And I do like Almond flavor so this sounds yummy!

I love Peppermint Tea! It's true it's a love-it-or-hate-it kind of flavor. It's good for when you are feeling a little stuffy or congested.
