TeaGschwendner Review and giveaway

Hi Neighbors,

Once again I get to share a tea company! TeaGgschwendner sent me two different samples of Cherry Tea! Just opening the bags and smelling them was a treat. I received the No. 992 Black Tea Aroma Edition Wild Cherry and the No. 1495 Fruit Tea Flavored Wild Cherry. I received 100g of loose leaf tea in both flavors. The cost-$9.35 per bag and $7.81 for the Fruit tea. I also received a book on teas, and a measuring spoon. I really enjoyed both teas. They each have a unique flavor. The cherry flavor is not as strong in the black tea, and my husband even liked it and he is not a big tea drinker. The fruit tea definitely has the stronger cherry, fruity flavor. My daughters and I liked. both of them. These would make a great addition to your tea cupboard, or as a gift for a friend. And if you prefer something other than Wild Cherry, I am sure you can find a flavor you like at TeaGschwendner.

I love to drink my tea by the big window in the living room so I can gaze outside, I always drink tea when I'm sick, I have fond memories of my mom rubbing my back and making me some green tea for my throat.
