Cool Off with Kungaloosh Tea: A Giveaway

Photo Source: House of Sims

Summertime is the perfect occasion for a glass of iced tea. We don’t drink a lot of tea during winter months at our house. We’re coffee and cocoa people when the weather outside is frightful. But, summer? Well, this time of year calls for tea.

Kungaloosh Tea Company recently sent me some samples to taste. What fun it was to browse their selection of tea! It took me back to my years in France when my friend Sarah and I would have afternoon tea and cookies. I know that doesn’t seem “French,” but that was our habit, in part because we didn’t know there were so many different kinds of tea in the world. I am partial to vanilla and black currant. Loved tasting those offerings from Kungaloosh!

Not only do they sell single-serving bags and loose tea leaves, but they also sell large iced tea bags to make a gallon iced tea. Perfect for a hot summer day! Plus, they also sell some very cute tea pots and cups.

  1. Iced Rooibos and hot too! I fell in love with Rooibos when I visited South Africa.

  2. I love to serve tea in china teacups. It’s fun to be fancy sometimes in our casual society.

  3. Better make it fast as my kids are running about and they will notice I am not running after them. As for me Tea having it just the way I love it actually right now.. In a Pitcher ice cold w/a mint leaf.. Ahhhhhhh Life is good :)

  4. When we lived in England, I found a great Earl Grey Vanilla tea that is fabulous hot with a little cream & sugar.

    During the winter I like to brew a gallon of tea with your basic black tea and 1 or 2 Earl Grey tossed in. I like my tea STRONG. :)

  5. I make a Red Raspberry iced tea. I make it by the gallon, and it usually gets drunk up in a day! We drink it between meals, and with meals.

  6. My favorite is iced tea ~ lots of ice!!!

  7. We do sweet tea here…Texan’s love their sweet tea!!!

  8. My husband is originally from Louisiana and has perfected Southern Sweet Iced Tea. Not too sweet and just sweet enough, I love it! ;) We use Luzianne to make our Iced Tea.

  9. Summer: iced mint tea with a little suger
    winter: double bergamont earl grey with a bit of cream
    We LOVE tea…

  10. I love homemade sweet tea and during the summer it is most likely you’d find a jug in my fridge. I love hot olong tea also!

  11. I’m in Texas and we prefer our tea over ice. Okay, I am sure someone drinks hot tea, but no one I know. LOL! And I drink iced tea year round.

  12. Allison I. says:

    Being pregnant, I CRAVE homemade sweet tea made in the big pitcher with the spout that you take out and set on the front porch in the sun, just like my mom always did/does.

  13. Well my husband and kids love “sweet tea”, but I personally like hot tea – especially peppermint with some french vanilla coffee creamer! MMMMM. Or if it’s really hot out, I will make it but leave out a little water and add ice cubes instead!

  14. I love a cup of hot tea in the morning (or any time of day for that matter)!

  15. we love tea of all kinds, but our norm is a mixture of chamomile and mint – tasty and refreshing, either hot or cold!

  16. Ronalee Duncan says:

    My favorite way to serve tea is in a tall glass with ice.

    RonaleeDuncan@aol.com

  17. I make cup after cup of hot tea with my coffee maker. Yes, you heard right, Coffee Maker! Fresh mint leaves added with the tea bag and a squeeze of lemon over ice is Sublime!

  18. Oh my gosh, we love tea in this house. My mom first started me out on “Russian Tea” she would make it herself and everyday at 4pm we would have ourselves an English Tea time. I do the same thing with my 6yr old daughter. About once a week I’ll make us a pot of tea in her special Tinkerbell Coffee (tea)cup and we’ll just sit there and drink tea together at 4pm.

    Hubby and I like to have Peppermint Tea late at night before bed. If there isn’t any chocolate milk in the house for him, then it’s late night tea time for us :)

  19. Adell Lukes says:

    I love to mix earl grey with vanilla almond tea and serve with real cream and sugar!

  20. After living in the south for awhile – sweet tea, hands down!

  21. It is 102 degrees here today – sweet tea with LOTS of ice!

  22. Here in Texas it’s all about the sweet tea in the summer (diabetes in a glass as I like to call it)…so we usually brew some up about every other day…a family sized bag of black tea, a pinch of baking soda to cut acidity, and a CUP of sugar to 2 quarts of water!!

    However, because of having lived in Romania for several years I developed a love for hot tea as well. A favorite of mine that I bought in Romania once and never was able to find again was a fruity one that was simply called Exotic…and I loved making up pots of it to drink with cream and sugar when it was snowy outside. A fave that I’ve discovered since moving back to the US and getting married is a minty chocolate rooibos…YUM!!

  23. We drink iced mint tea during the summer!!! Makes your mouth feel really cold!!

  24. We love tea! My daughter & I have a cup of chamomile tea almost every night before bed in our matching rosebud tea cups, and we drink plenty of iced tea throughout the day. I’m pretty obsessed with sweet tea, too. :)

  25. There is nothing like sweet iced tea with lots of lemon!!!!!

  26. Adrienne Larkin says:

    We do a lot of sweet tea in the summer and Turkish tea in the winter (although we are not Turkish)

  27. Oh I love tea. I love good ol’ Lipton Ice Tea in the Summer and Chocolate Mint tea in the winter months. In fact I feel like some Ice Tea right now.

  28. I will drink about 2 pitchers of tea a day. I mix 2 bags of peach tea with 4 bags of Lipton and let it sit for about an hr. THen i put it in a big pitcher and put it in the fridge. I also LOVE to make sun tea, and since I live in Arizona it’s great all the time.

    Chamomile is what I drink at night to wind me down as well.

  29. In Georgia, there is no other way except iced, sweet and maybe a lemon slice! LOL

  30. Melanie says:

    I prefer iced tea, I drink some every day, winter and summer! My mom used to make me drink hot tea when I was sick when I was a kid and I think that is why I don’t care for hot tea now.

  31. Leslie Price says:

    My favorite way to serve tea is with biscuits and marmalade.

  32. I like to serve tea with lemon! And i like to let it steep in a mug with a little glass bowl on top of it. then when it’s finished steeping you can discard the tea bag in the bowl!

  33. I just ordered the old-school aluminum cups for my iced-tea enthusiast husband. I can’t think of anything better than ice cold tea on a hot Texas afternoon served in icy cups!

  34. Catherine says:

    Hot peppermint tea with almonette cookies on the side. :)

  35. Rachel K says:

    I love sweat tea! About anytime is a great time for sweet iced tea! For hot tea, I choose Black Tea and I love using my kettle! :) I would love to have a tea pot to serve my tea in! Teapots are so cute!

  36. Tea is our winter time delight, although thanks for the reminder for sun tea, also a favorite for summer days! ~C

  37. I truly enjoy Constant Comment – Black Tea with Orange OR Oolong with a stir fry.

  38. A favorite mug and a pot of boiling water are all the formality I go with! I’ve enjoyed Rooibos in the past though right now have been on a green tea kick for quite a while. I enjoy trying new flavors of tea! Thank you for the giveaway!

  39. I love to serve and drink tea! Hot, cold, plain or sweet! This tea set would save me a trip to sonic for happy hour!

  40. My favorite is sweet, iced tea especially on a hot day.

  41. Depending on the kind of tea… I am NOT a sweet tea person but I like Ice Tea w/ lemonade in a mason jar with ice. ;)

    Otherwise gimme a cup of vanilla chai tea in a coffee mug and I’m a happy camper.

  42. I love hot tea. I love most fruit teas with a little sugar and a lot of quiet to enjoy it.

    I love a nice warm cup Cinnamon Apple tea.

  47. Such a toss up between:
    1. Hot black tea with cream and sugar server in a china cup.
    2. Iced with lots of mint and lemon served in a mason jar.

  48. Christina Storey says:

    Right now I am into serving pregnancy tea, being 6 mo preg. :)

  49. I love to have a quiet cup of English Breakfast tea (or actually any tea!) while the kidlets and husband are sleeping soundly and the house is nice and quiet. I am the only fan of hot tea in my house, so those are my special moments of solitude. ;)

  50. I make sweet tea for my husband- I like hot tea!

  51. I love a cup of hot tea with sugar and milk in pretty, old fashioned tea cup while my girls use their rabbit tea set.

  52. Colleen says:

    In the winter I make multiple cups of hot tea every day!

  57. My teen daughter and I sit together at the table in the evenings and try different flavors of tea while working on her homeschooling work, coupons, or just playing a game of cards. We have one of these lovely tea for me pots but can’t use it because there are two of us. It would be so much fun if we both had one. That, or we just need a really nice tea set for two.

  58. By myself – strong mint tea. Sometimes with sweetener, sometimes without.
    But I prefer to drink tea, with others, in delicate tea cups. Always very hot.

  59. Iced with splenda.

  60. I’m a Southern girl, so iced sweet tea is hands down the favorite. But I went to England when I was sixteen and was introduced to cream teas. That’s one of my favorite winter treats. Especially if I get really industrious and make up a batch of scones to go with it!

  61. Each morning during the warm months I put out a large glass jar with some decaf tea bags and water out in the sun for at least 4 hours. We love to drink the tea all day. During the winter I love Sleepytime Tea before bed.

  62. I like hot tea, but sweet tea is good too!

  63. I love tea! Usually I have a cup of English Breakfast in the morning at work. Sometimes I’ll have a cup of green tea in the afternoon. And every once in a while I will treat myself to a homemade Chai Latte (finally learned how to make my own!!).

  66. Christine says:

  67. no hot tea or sweet tea for me. i like the tropical blends of tea… mango tea from LaBou, tropical tea from Cheesecake Factory or PF Changs all are great! i try to imitate it as i brew my own, but it’s never quite the same.

  68. Iced chai tea with a splash of sweetened condensed milk.

  69. Tabitha K says:

    I love tea in an old coffee mug curled up on the couch with a good book. Although, on special occasions, I’ll sit and drink loose tea from an old mug and strainer my father brought me back from Russia years ago.

  70. I love it when tea is served in the dainty, pretty tea cup, but most of the tea, i drink it out of my mug.

  71. Tea and a cookie or cracker. A must! Ruby sounds like a tasty tea too!

  72. I have a special tea set from China that I like to serve hot tea in. For other times, I have three special tea cups and they have pretty little flowers on them….. I like to serve tea with a fig newton, or a little something fun….

  73. I just warm some water and steep my tea in my oversized Winnie the Pooh mug. I have a cool tea pot with a center cylinder to hold the tea, that will make several glasses if I’m serving more than just me.

  75. Hot in a thermos so I can take it to work!

    We love sweetened iced tea (but not quite the way southerners serve it, rotting teeth sweet), but I do like warm tea in winter too, as we’re not coffee drinkers at all.

    we love to make tea after naptime in our fancy teapot. Its the most fun for my daughter to get to pour the milk into our tea.

  83. iced tea with lots of ice.

  84. In North Carolina we like really sweet iced tea all year long! I like the 1/2 & 1/2….. a mix of sweet and unsweetened tea that’s served in restaurants. At home, I put a splash of any juice in my homemade tea to give it a little variety of flavors.

  85. Hot tea with a touch of honey. It’s also good once it cools!

  86. lately I’ve been having cold chai, mixed with milk. When I need it hot, it’s usually brewed and then a bit of honey for some sweet.

    And when I’m sick, I add a bit of scotch. ;)

  103. Jodi Nevins says:

    So far it has just been single servings here. Looking forward to experimenting and doing more with tea.
