A Giveaway from Libre Tea – CLOSED

As Mother’s Day approaches, I’m so glad to be sharing this next giveaway with you.

Do you like to drink tea? Find yourself on the road cup in hand? Want a little something special to have a tea moment? Then this travel tea glass from Libre Tea is perfect for you!

Traditional tea cups aren’t too handy when you need to man the carpool or run to playgroup. And while travel coffee cups can sure fill the need in a pinch, it’s nice to have somethings a little more elegant, a little more dainty than your everyday chunky mug.

I love the sleek design of this glass and the gentle etching on the steel lid.

Libre Tea recently released their “big gulp” version of their glass’n poly glass that I reviewed last year. From Libre Tea,

The Libre Tea glass ’n poly large is the ‘big gulp’ of tea with a 420 mL capacity. It has a health-conscious glass interior for fresh taste and a durable polycarbonate exterior for ‘on the go’ durability. The stainless steel tea filter is surrounded by BPA free polypropylene as is the lid interior.Can be used 2 ways to brew and travel with loose leaf tea.

This glass from Libre Tea is perfectly designed for brewing loose leaf tea. There are several videos on their site to show you exactly how to use the glass safely. If you don’t read directions very well {waves hand wildly}, watching the videos is a must.

You can either place the tea in the filter, pour water in, then cap the glass, and — get this — flip it upside down. Brilliant. Just remove the screw-on filter to drink your tea.

Alternatively, you can place the tea in the glass, pour in the water. After the steeping time has ended, pour your tea into a tea cup for drinking. This glass is like a little travel tea pot that you can drink from. And you don’t have to worry about the spout breaking off in your luggage.

Libre Tea is sharing the large glass’n poly tea glass with three LifeasMOM readers this weekend. Each winner will also receive a package of their organic ming mei green tea.

As you may know, I’m a “have-a-little-coffee-with-my-cream-and-sugar” kind of girl. But, in my efforts to reduce a few empty calories (aforementioned cream and sugar), I’m weaning myself from coffee.

Yes, yes, I am.

Not completely, but most days I’m leaning toward green tea, specifically this green tea, for my morning pick-me-up. It’s been a nice, refreshing change. It’s a lighter drink to match the lighter mood of spring. I think you’ll enjoy it. I love how each portion is prepackaged, making it perfect to take to work, on vacation, to playgroup, wherever.

You can catch up with Libre Tea on Twitter as well as Facebook.

  1. I love tea and have been carrying around glasses everywhere I go for years but that cup looks great! I would love to be able to brew fresh tea while out and about and they have now solved the problem! I SO hope I win one!

  2. GOODNESS, this looks lovely!! Sure hope I win one!

  3. I have tea every night after my kids are in bed. As my kids get older, my nightly ritual becomes later and later, but I still have to sit down for a quiet moment with a cup of tea (and some dark chocolate!)

  4. Marissa says:

    I have tea at night with my hubby after the kids have gone to bed.

  5. Elizabeth M says:

    Having tea after dinner as a family has been a tradition for years. The kids love their decaffeinated herbal tea so there is no worry about them reacting negatively to the caffeine. I love the idea of a tea cup slash tea pot “on the go”. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Hope I win :)

  6. carol fleisher says:

    I love tea especially since giving up coffee. I love to sit on my back porch drinking tea while a cool breeze blows in off the bay.

  7. Diana Powell says:

    The best time to enjoy tea is in the morning sitting in front of the computer catching up on my favorite blogs .

  8. Hattie says:

    Sipping tea on the sofa with my hubby, at night, after the kids are in bed, while we are reading, or watching a show, or working on small “sit-down” tasks at the coffee table.

  9. Iced tea has always been in the refrigerator as far as my memory stretches back. It doesn’t matter what time of year, it’s there. Instead of soda, I’ll have iced tea simply because I was raised with tea in the house.

    During the cold winter months, though I love to have a cup of hot tea. My favorite tea moment was this past winter when my daughters decided to forgo hot chocolate in order to share a cup of tea with me. It was so nice to sit and chat with my girls (age 8 and 10) over a cup of tea.

  10. I’ve only recently started to get into tea. That is a really cool idea. I’d love to win!

  11. Emily E Lah says:

    Every Weds. evening I get together with another mom friend after our kids are in bed and visit over a cup of tea for several hours. It’s the best adult time I have all week :)

  12. I love tea as well. I’ve been enjoying iced red zinger lately, super yummy:)

  13. I found this Minty Mocha tea that I fell in love with and it was so nice to have a cup and just sit and relax on the porch. Tea time means quiet time in my house.
    Have a blessed day and thanks for the opportunity to win.

  14. Tea time is at night while watching tv or reading a book.

  15. I love tea! I’m not a coffee drinker, but I do enjoy a cup of tea any time. Since I travel frequently for work, this would be ideal for me. I would love to win one!

  16. I love sitting with a close friend or family member and drinking a nice hot cup of tea with some ginger lemon cookies.

  17. Elizabeth Hall says:

    I just recently took up drinking tea while pregnant. While I drank it out of duty to begin with, I actually enjoy it now. In fact, I very much look forward to drinking tea with my 7 year old son almost every morning!

  18. Marsha A. says:

    I prefer tea over coffee. I always sip on tea in the everning. When my son is home from college he now has tea with me and we sip and talk.

  19. Oh my goodness, this sounds like an amazing product! I love a hot cup of tea in the middle of my day as a break in all the craziness of life. It’s so soothing and helps me find a new perspective so I can face the rest of the day!

  20. Ashlee P says:

    My favorite tea memories are from tea time in Kenya.

  21. Michelle G says:

    I am a tea addict. I love fresh brewed tea almost any time of the day and since I have it without cream and sugar it is a guiltless treat for me.

  22. I like to drink tea in the evenings to unwind. I occasionally drink it in the morning if I need a little extra boost, as I don’t drink coffee. Thank you for the giveaway!

  23. The quietest one is the last cup of the day (generally carried up to bed with me!) but the most enjoyable ones are usually drunk at the side of a pitch watching the boys training or playing matches of whatever sport it happens to be – always green or herbal/decaf tea.

  24. I love to hot tea in the evenings to relax or as a pick me up in the afternoon but have never thought to travel with it. Love this. Have a best friend who would too – birthday gift idea! Yea!

  25. Natalie Q. says:

    I always have a cup of tea before bed. As my children have gotten older, they have adopted this tea “custom” also. Now it’s not unusual for me to be sitting in bed at night with a child on either side of me, all of us having tea (and the dog at the foot of the bed begging for some too!)

  26. I love a spicy tea with lots of honey on cold days.

  27. I am also trying to wean myself from coffee, well the cream & sugar part any way! I recently started drinking green tea and I think this glass would add the perfect touch as I try to quit my sugar addiction!

  28. That glass is very pretty. I enjoy tea on cold mornings.

  29. I never enter contests, but I couldn’t resist this one because I LOVE TEA! Favorite tea experience was at a little place that does “high tea” in Woodstock, Georgia. Went there with my sister – we wore fancy hats and everything!

  30. Gillian C says:

    in the afternoon when my kids are napping. Peace and quiet and a cup of tea..ahhhhh.

  31. Brenda says:

    My tea moment is in the afternoon usually in my car as I drive kids around, this would be great since my coffee moment is in the morning and my tea sometimes tastes like coffee from the travel cup

  32. I’ve been a tea drinker for as long as I can remember, never cared for coffee. However, my absolute favorite time to drink it is out on the patio in the summer, early in the morning listening to the birds chirping. It always seems like all is right with the world.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  33. I like having a glass of fresh tea after supper

  34. I have been a tea drinker forever, but my favorite memories are of my best friend and I in high school, every morning ordering tea from the cafeteria. We would chat and there is actually a picture of us in our yearbook with the quote ‘tea girls’ underneath! Love my tea!

  35. I love tea any time of day, especially since I’ve had morning sickness this whole pregnancy!

  36. Kelly G says:

    I love tea. I recently started exploring all of the wonderful varieties of loose tea. I love to have iced tea during the day and a cup of warm tea at night.

  37. I am not sure I have a favorite tea time. I love a cup in the mornings on the patio before my kids wake up. I love snuggling with a cup of tea and a little bit of knitting. Always as a little slow down from the day. I think this cup is s pretty! Thanks for the chance.

  38. My favorite tea time is winter days after school when my daughter comes home from school and makes tea for both of us. It won’t be long before she’s off to college, so I treasure those days. Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Mother’s Day!

  39. Jessika says:

    My favorite time for tea is with friends or with my sister and mom. Tea makes me savor the moment a little more.

  40. I love tea! I like to enjoy a cup of tea any time of day, hot or iced. Thanks for the give away.

  41. rebekah says:

    My favorite tea moments are two fold. 1) I LOVE drinking chamomile with my husband after the kids go to bed. (Esp. since it used to be wine before pregnancy and nursing) 2) I love drinking Japanese green tea after a good meal with friends.

  42. I love tea on weekend mornings:-) ahhh…

  43. Theresa says:

    I’m having a “tea moment” right now w/ some delicious Cinnamon Spice tea:)

  44. So elegant! I not so recently gave up coffee, this is awesome:)

    • @sanq, Io
      My favorite tea moment is weekend mornings with my husband. He works a lot out of town during the week so it is our time to reconnect.

  45. Saskia says:

    I remember the cup of milk-and-tea that I had every morning for breakfast as a kid. My daughter now drinks her tea using the same cup I did!

  46. When I am worn out at night, I love a good cup of tea!

  47. Rebecca W. says:

    We drink tea at all times of the day.

  48. Lori Hurley says:

    I love tea! This morning, my daughter made me a cup of earl grey with cream and sugar. It was lovely. She’s gearing up for breakfast tomorrow and asked a million questions about which tea I like and exactly how I prepare it. :smit: She’s such a wonderful little girl.

  49. Dessert for me is tea every night. Relaxing with the kids and sipping away!

  50. I love tea, especially ice cold sweet tea!

  51. Ah…. first thing in the morning, with a spoonfull of local honey to sweeten. No matter what activity I have to pair with drinking it, its far more pleasurable with a “cuppa” tea in my hand.

  52. Jean P says:

    Tea with friends, no better way to spend part of the day!

  53. Sharon H. (TX) says:

    I, too, have been trying to wean myself off of coffee and have started drinking tea. What a great cup design for making brewed tea “to go!”

  54. Chelsea says:

    I love going to formal afternoon tea with my mom. Tea and scones, mmmm.

  55. I’m living at home during college, and some of my favorite moments are when I get home from class and my mom and I enjoy a pot of tea together. This would make a perfect gift for her. If I don’t keep it for myself. ;)

  56. amanda says:

    I love drinking tea with my mom. It’s something only we do and we talk and watch our gameshows.

  57. Adella says:

    My favorite tea moments are in the afternoon, when we finish school and we make a pot of tea, always, always have something sweet and sit down for our read aloud time. With my three children, this is that precious time when I can sit back and let time somewhat stand still.

  58. My sister and I are tea people. My Dad hailed from Scotland and tea is a way of life- it’s probably where we got it from. Though we don’t get to see eachother often (we live on opposite sides of the country) when we do we spend our mornings sipping tea and catching up at the kitchen table while we watch our kids play. Some of my happiest memories.

  59. My favorite tea is chai tea. I love it with some brown sugar and a splash of cream.

  60. I love to curl up on the couch with a blanket, a good book, and a hot cup of tea on a cold night!

  61. shannon merritt says:

    I like tea in the a.m.-after I have gotten 1/2 of my children out the door for school ad before the other 1/2 wakes up.

  62. I’m a huge coffee drinker. I also love a little coffee with my cream and sugar! My husband however can no longer drink coffee for medical reasons. It’s too harsh on his stomach and with his recent diagnosis of angina, he’s been drinking green tea religiously. He’s mentioned that he would like some Harney & Son’s green tea and/or Teavana, but it’s super expensive and we’re on an extremely tight budget. So, I’m not sure what to get him for his upcoming birthday. This travel tea mug sounds like an awesome idea! I’ve never heard of Libre tea as I’m a super huge fan of coffee. Maybe this will work out for my hubby. Who knows, maybe he’ll finally convert me to become a tea drinker too!

  63. Rhonda Barnett says:

    I am a new tea drinker. I used to drink coffee, but it started bothering my stomach, so I began trying different teas. I am totally hooked on it now. I can’t imagine a day without tea!!! =)

  64. in the winter i have tea every morning. i love my peppermint tea. in the summer, i miss it, so sometimes if it is a cool morning, i still make it. :)

  65. I enjoy masala chai as an early evening pick me up. Thats when my hubby gets back from work and we have some chai moments together.

  66. Kelly C says:

    When we were first married, we spent 3 years in Taiwan. It was there we began our love of tea made with loose leaves and the slow ceremony of making and enjoying it.

  67. Melanie says:

    I drink tea every afternoon, it’s a time I look forward to. Thank you for the giveaway, it’s a nice idea!

  68. We have tea when I meet with a couple friends for accountability. Its a good time of confession and encouragement over a hot cup of tea.

  69. Another tea lover here. Can’t go a day without it and definitely prefer glass over plastic to drink from. This looks awesome!

  70. I recently made the switch from coffee to tea…not that I won’t enjoy a good cup of coffee now and then, but I mainly drink tea in the mornings now…if things are going my way, I like to sit down with my tea and my Google Reader and browse great blogs…things are going my way for a few min. right now in fact!

  71. I LOVE tea! I am so glad I saw this. I am not a coffee drinker at all, it is tea for me. I like it iced or hot. I have tried many flavors and have within the last year gotten into loose leaf. It is my wake up call, my de-stress time, my make me feel better moment, and always helps my hubby when he is sick or having a bad asthma attack.

    I hope I win!!!

  72. Wow, what a great portable tea system!!

    I have few if any tea moments as I’m also more of a little coffee with my cream and sugar kind of mom… but I do like green tea. I know it’s better for me as well. So here’s to drinking more tea!

  73. Erin S says:

    My favorite tea moments is almost every night my husband and I have a cup of tea before bed and talk :)

  74. I’m having a nice tea moment right now, with breakfast and blog surfing while my son plays.

    I saw a tea infuser like that a couple years ago and thought it was rad. I’d love to have one!

  75. MichelleH says:

    I love a cup of tea at bedtime with a good book. Several years ago my husband gave me a gorgeous antique cup and saucer and it makes me smile just to see it.

    This travel tumbler looks like a great way to enjoy green tea on the go. I hope I win!

  76. Courtney says:

    I love tea when curled up with a good book.

  77. I love it when fall arrives and I break out my chai tea. It is it the perfect accompaniment to a cozy blanket and a great book.

  78. Joellen F says:

    My girls love having “tea parties” for lunch. We make a pot of tea and the five-year-old pours for all of us. My favorite time for tea, though, is when the living room is clean and the girls are down for naps–I pull out my china tea set and make tea for me. Somehow a delicate china tea cup makes the tea taste better. :-)

  79. I love tea with a little bit of honey in it.

  80. Tammy H says:

    After my kids go to bed, I have a cup of tea to relax and read a book!!

  81. misty gorman says:

  82. Lisa H. says:

    My mom used to drink tea quite a bit and she had a favorite loose tea in a tin canister that always smelled amazing.

  83. I love tea, though not as much as coffee, and often forget about it. Love the idea of this handy dandy glass/cup!

  84. I just love drinking tea, there seems to be so many different teas that can help out from having a cold to needing more energy to get you through the day or even a glass of tea to help you sleep better at night. Personally I use them all & the travel glass tea holder would come in handy for all of my day to day erands that I do with my family.

  85. I love to visit my best friend in NC and share cups of tea at Starbucks, talk for hours, and browse quirky shops. Tea relaxes me.

  86. I love my cup of tea in the morning, caffeinated in the morning and non in the evening. Chai and Darjeeling are my favs. I love sharing a cup with a friend, having a great heart to heart. I finally had to buy a pink to go mug so my husband wouldn’t use mine for his coffee. Blechy after taste!!

  87. melynn r says:

    I love tea, iced or hot. What a great giveaway!

  88. Love tea! Especially at night after the kids are in bed and I can relax.

  89. My daughter and I love having tea parties, but the best was at my MIL’s house! We all dressed up and sipped tea. It was so much fun!

  90. My friend served a peach tea, following Easter dinner, just lovely for all ages :) Beautiful glass :)

  91. Rooibos has been a favorite for the past year or so, but it’s hard to keep the small little bits out of the brew. I would love to try this method!

  92. I like tea in the morning when it is nice and quiet.

  93. My ‘fav’ tea moments are with my friend – an avid tea drinker. We chat over warm mugs while our kids play together!

  94. I am usually a coffee drinker. However, every evening after dinner I start on my tea. I drink at least 3 cups an evening. Many times, on the go to soccer games, etc (so that cup would be awesome)!!! Thanks for sharing.
    Aimee

  95. Clarissa says:

    I love how calm I feel after a glass of tea! What a cool mug!

  96. I was just making a cup of tea as I sat down to check out your blog. To see a new company I had never seen…now that’s a great tea moment.
    I like tea so much I even wrote a post about having good tea served at breakfast out.

  97. Cynthia Cusson says:

    I love sitting with some hot tea by the woodstove in the wintertime.

  98. I am presently disabled and in lots of pain, so my favorite tea moment is when my hubby brings me my medicine and tea to my bedside and prays over me…I am very blessed!
    I would luv to win this giveaway and have on the go tea for when I get more mobile…

  99. I was very young when I started drinking tea. My favorite memory is getting all my cousins hooked on tea too :P!

  100. I started drinking tea at a very young age. My favorite memory is getting all my cousins hooked on tea too :P!

  101. Jen Logan says:

    My favorite tea moment is early in the morning when no one else is up yet…just me and my cup of Vanilla Almond. Ahhh!

  102. I LOVE tea and this cup looks amazing! My favorite tea moment is a quiet house (with napping kids), a cup of tea in a hand-thrown mug, and my Bible – ah, bliss!

  103. Kristi says:

    I am trying so hard to reduce the amount of coke that I drink in a week. I would like to have one or less a week. I often crave them in the afternoon when I have my kiddos down for a nap and I have a moment to get on the computer, sit and fold laundry, read a book for a few minutes, or something that involves a little bit of down time. I have found that a glass of fresh unsweet iced tea (my favorite is with fruity flavors) is so refreshing and it truely quenchs my thirst, unlike cokes.

  104. Kristin says:

    I used to have tea with my best friend in college. I only like the really fruity kinds. :)

  105. I love to drink tea, especially when I’m cold!

  106. Ashlee says:

    My husband and I have a classic cast iron Japanese tea set that we received as wedding present/housewarming present. It has become a family ritual to have a ‘tea time’ before bed every night.. picking the tea, getting the water the right temperature, steeping it, and slowly sipping while discussing our day. The most relaxing part of my day!

  107. I, too, am trying to cut back on coffee and have fallen in love with tea! There are teas to invigorate, teas to relax, and everything in between. I would love to have a lovely travel tea brewing glass. Pick me! Pick me!

  108. Stacey says:

    I’m a coffee lover in the morning and a tea lover in the afternoon. This looks like THE PERFECT thing to have when I go out to my little vegetable garden. There, I like to sit at my little table in the corner of my garden and enjoy the “fruit” of my labor.

  109. My favorite tea time is early in the morning before everyone is up and I can watch the birds out the window and sip a soothing cup of tea.

  110. We have the most wonderful tea house where I live and I enjoy anytime I get to runaway there! What a neat giveaway!

  111. I love tea! I often make our garden tea and this looks like it would be a great way to use those loose leaves!

    My fav tea memories are the tea parties I have with my girls! They are such precious memories.

  112. sarah v. says:

    Taking my little girls to a tea party – definitely memory making times.

  113. I really enjoy afternoon tea with my kids when I can take a breather. School work is done, toddler is down for a nap, and I don’t have to fix dinner yet. Just a quiet moment with which ever children are around.

  114. Heather E. says:

    I love tea when I need a moment to sit and take a break. Tea is such a wonderful beverage… hot or cold… it requires the person drinking it to STOP and simply drink! Thanks for the giveaway!

  115. Miranda says:

    I love drinking tea with my sister

  116. Spent some time in China and am positively addicted to a particular region’s loose leaf green tea. This would be perfect!

  117. I have so many “tea moments” and honestly, the tea makes ANY moment a “tea moment”. Most recently I was sitting in the hospital with my very ill 21 year old daughter having some tea. I brought my ceramic mug and all of the fixings for tea and just used the microwave to heat up the water. I would sit by her bed and cry out to God for her. I found the tea to be a balm to my body as the Lord was a balm to my soul.

    Praise God she is looking like she is turning the corner and is beginning to make some strides so that she can come home to recover and move on with life!!

  118. Favorite tea moment…once the kids are in bed!

  119. Getting a 12 pk of Lipton Brisk Tea and drinking it all myself! No all at once, of course.

  120. Amanda says:

    My best tea moments are with a few of my girlfriends. I’m not a big tea drinker, but they are, so if I do have a cup without them, I always think of them :)

  121. Amanda says:

    I *heart* tea. I have a cup with my breakfast most mornings. Love to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book :)

  122. Tea is my favorite treat at night with my husband after the kido is in bed!

  123. Trina Miller says:

    My favorite tea memory is my mom making me apple cinnamon tea with honey whenever I was sick. I still find it comforting.

  124. In the kitchen on a cold winter day with my mother-in-law…during naptime while reading or blogging…with a dear friend after a long cross-country trip…in the morning during “prep time” at school.

    Love to cozy up with tea!!

  125. Melissa says:

    My favorite tea moment is when the house is still dark and quiet and I’m wapped up in a blanket with a good book.

  126. On cold nights when I have to take the kids to this or that, I love to have warm tea in my hands.

  127. My husband and I like to drink tea every evening.
    I would love to win!

  128. I don’t know if it’s my favorite per se, but in what turned out to be a vain attempt to start labor with my daughter I drank quite a bit of red raspberry leaf tea.

  129. sue chibana says:

    I love tea. I drink hot tea every morning
    and have ice tea all afternoon. Wish I would win!

  130. My fondest tea memory is from when I was little. When I was sick with a cough and cold, mom would make me a cup of hot tea with a teaspoon of brandy in it to calm my cough. I still keep a bottle of brandy on hand for just this purpose and I still think of my mom whenever I drink tea and brandy.

  131. Amanda says:

    My favorite tea moment is when my Mom, my sister and I had a “real tea” in England – nice memories!

  132. I love my tea- every morning my ten year old and I have a cup together – it is has been a nice ritual for us – plain for me and sugar in his – just thinking about it makes me smile – this is so pretty too!

  133. Tea time—just me, my tea and my porch swing

  134. My favorite tea moments were actually from my childhood when I would sit with my grandpa as he sipped his tea from the saucer. He would pour a little bit from the cup into the saucer and then sip it.

  135. I like a cup of tea to satisfy my sweet cravings.

  136. tea is important….favorite memories were in Taiwan where I learned how to make traditional high mountain tea from a elementary school principal.

  137. A cup of tea with my 5 year old (she drinks peppermint) during afternoon “quiet time” is the perfect way to catch little bits of her heart.

  138. Summer nights with iced tea and my best girlfriends!

  139. Tiffany Waters says:

    I LOVE loose tea. One of my favorite stores is Teavana

  140. Carole says:

    sitting on the back porch early in the morning when the birds are going crazy and it’s just God and me- that’s my kind of “tea moment” :-)

  141. I have recently given up coffee…this would be perfect! Green tea is my new thing! :)

  142. Charity Shapiro says:

    I love to curl up with a good book and a cup of hot tea.

  143. Love, love, love tea. It is my afternoon “pick-me-up”!

  144. teresa says:

    i enjoy iced tea as a refreshing warm afternoon beverage. but in cold weather, i love wrapping my hands around a cup of hot tea.

  145. Caroline says:

    I have tea while my kids are getting ready for bed.

  146. Tea is one of my favorite drinks. My favorite tea moment is the rare holiday or weekend AM when the kids are all happily occupied and I make myself some chai tea and put my feet up while sipping. Bliss.

  147. Tracy H says:

    My favorite tea moment is my bridal shower having high tea at the Drake in Chicago. I also loved having high tea at the Fairmont in Banff. I love to host special occasions with tea parties!

  148. I love having a warm cup of tea listening to a spring rain and reading a good book.

  149. I grew up in a tea household, no coffeepot on our counter. So I have millions of tea moments from my childhood. Now when I drink a cup of tea it almost always causes me to sit & reflect even if only for a moment on those wonderful memories.

  150. After the kids are in bed, I sit down with my Kindle and have a little quiet time. :)

  151. I love hot and iced tea! I like to drink hot tea at night while reading a good book and sometimes taking a good bath. Although that will sometimes overheat you :)

  152. I love sitting out on the porch in the cool of the morning as the sun rises, sipping a nice cup of tea and listening to the world wake up.

    This cup looks amazing. I hope I win one!

  155. Charity L. says:

  157. Chelsea says:

    My sisters threw me a tea party bridal shower. They scoured garage sales and thrift stores for tea cups and saucers, and I had the honor of using my great grandmother’s tea cup!

  158. I love morning tea with a splash of milk

  159. Let’s put the kettle on and have a cuppa works any time for me.

  160. Samantha says:

    I drink tea every morning- now with my daughter too. We use nice cups and saucers- love it! I also organize and chair a tea fundraiser at my church each year- about 100 guests and this past March raised over $1,000!!!

  161. Kelly P says:

    tea around the holidays is very relaxing-something cinnamony…

  162. Mornings for me are for coffee, but the rest of the day I really like to have tea handy. Hubby and I love to curl up with a movie and a fresh pot of mint~chamomile.

  163. Vanessa says:

    I love tea when it is hot.

  164. I switched to tea in the am instead of coffee- it is lighter feeling for spring!

  165. I love to drink tea and this would be fabulous! I’m trying to get away from Nestea and more into REAL tea!

  166. Katherine says:

    I LOVE tea so to me all tea moments are special. I love having a nice cuppa to wind down in the morning or sharing a cup with a friend as we catch up on our lives. And of course a nice bracing cup is the best way to start the day.

  167. Carmen E. says:

    My favorite tea ‘moment’ is early in the morning before baby girl wakes up and I can just sit and sip while reading my Bible for the day. :)

  168. My fav tea moments are when they are shared with a friend. I love iced tea the best, but with just the right amount of honey and the right flavored tea, I’m in heaven!

  169. CoreyAnn says:

    In America and in the heart of coffee-land (Seattle), we are fortunate to be a family that loves our daily tea and high tea breaks. My favorite tea moment is really a series of moments…

    When my oldest daughter was a toddler I used to take her out to tea on a regular basis (about once a month). From there I raised a lover of tea and someone who can spend the time relaxing and relating over a hot cup and scones.

    Now 18, she graduated last year and moved on to college. While we don’t get to do tea as often we still manage to put some on our calendar. I love this time with her.

    Last month we were able to put together a generational tea with my mother, my sister, my 18yo, and my youngest daughter. At age 3, she has grown up with us taking her to tea. I hope to have the same bonding with her as she grows.

    I can’t wait until I’m celebrating long discussions over tea with my daughters and their children!

  170. Eileen Petersen says:

    Peppermint tea is the bomb! I also like the Awake tea from Starbucks when I am having a rough day. It has an amazing amount of caffine in it!

  171. the best tea moments for me — early morning, fresh cup of tea and newspaper

  172. Amanda Y. says:

    We love tea–brewed at home and iced, green tea hot or cold, earl grey warm in the morning on the deck–it’s all wonderful!

  173. Kristen says:

    I love it when I am able to sit down with my tea before the kids wake up and things get crazy.

  174. Danielle Budd says:

    I love Iced Tea, my fav tea moments would be sitting on my Great-Grandmothers porch drinking tea with her and her husband, some of my all time favorite memories!

  175. Jennifer says:

    Celestial Seasonings has a tea that is Sweet Coconut Chai… it is like dessert in a glass with no calories! YUM!

  176. I love a cup of tea and a good book at the end of the day

  177. My husband’s the big tea drinker in our family. I buy him bulk green tea from the health food store.

  178. I love iced tea. The students I teach tell me I always have iced tea in the classroom. It’s my morning pick me up since I don’t drink coffee.

  179. I’ve never been a “hot tea” person. But as a good Southern girl, I’m never without a glass of ice cold sweet tea.

  180. favorite tea moments are definitely when I am sick…NOTHING is better than a hot cup of tea…lovely…

  181. My tea loving sister is in Scotland and we are in Maryland. Skype & tea is a wonderful, refreshing break from grad schooling & homeschooling . . .

  182. My favorite tea moment is during afternoon naps. I am very blessed that my kiddos (ages 6,4,3) all take a nice long nap each day. It becomes my time to accomplish those tasks that are difficult to do with little ones ‘helping’ but first I make a cup of tea and curl up with a good book to recharge for the rest of my day. Happy moments indeed.

    (by the way, the is the coolest tea glass I’ve ever seen!)
