Shangri La Iced Tea and Hot Herbal Teas Review and Giveaway $33.80 Value


Thinking back over the years, I think we should own stock in a tea company....We ALWAYS have iced tea available at our home at all times.  Everyone in our house enjoys drinking it.  And I enjoy drinking it and looking for new and exciting flavors to try and share with my family.



Beyond the iced teas we drinking continuously...as the weather cools, hot tea becomes a staple.  I really enjoy relaxing with a nice warm cup of tea before bed.  We actually have a cabinet in our kitchen that is only for our large selection of hot teas we keep on hand....as you never know what flavor may hit the spot.   
Recently I was lucky enough to be introduced to an amazing and passionate tea company.


Not only is Shangri La Tea passionate about their tea.....they are passionate about our environment and being socially responsible, including conservation and worker protection efforts. Their tea gardens are members of the Rainforest Alliance and meet the strict environmental and social standards required to qualify for certification as Rainforest Alliance Certified Farms. AMAZING!!  Thank you Shangri La Tea for striving to make a difference to help our world.



Shangri La Tea carries a selection of high quality hot and iced tea products for food service and retail beverages. Their exceptional teas are available as iced tea, organic tea bags, loose leaf tea, tea espresso pods and gourmet organic silken pyramid sachets. They have iced tea in black, herbal and green teas, as well as organic iced tea and many unique flavored iced teas in flavors that include tropical passion, raspberry and other natural flavors.

I am excited and privileged that Shangri La Tea sent me out a HUGE selection of their Award Winning Hot and Cold Teas from their Wellness Line to sample, review and Giveaway to one lucky Bloggy Friend (A $33.80 Value!)

Here is my wonderful experiences with the Shangri La Tea Wellness line:

Iced Tea - Raspberry Cooler....
I was excited upon opening the re-seal able bag...and the fruity aroma that greeted me.  It made me want to brew a large filter pack and sit back and enjoy a sip (which I did....ummmmm).  The instructions on the back of the bag were very descriptive and clear, which made it very easy and simple to follow in order to brew and enjoy a perfect cup of beautifully clear Shangri la iced tea.

The Raspberry Cooler was so clean, crisp and delicately flavored with raspberries.  I enjoy the natural hint of flavor, as it wasn't over powering.  The re-seal able bag contained 6 - 1/2oz packets.
It is Sugar Free, Calorie Free and Caffeine Free.

Iced Tea - Wellness Tulsi Plus....
This iced tea had a very earthy, complex aroma.  Ages old wisdom tells of holy tulsi healing the body and soul, high in antioxidants and rich in minerals.  Shangri La added chamomile to soothe stress and rosehips for vitamin C. This naturally sweet, calorie free iced tea is sure to add the wellness factor in everyday living.

Ingredients: Tulsi, Chamomile, Rosehips, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Orange Peel, Licorice, Stevia, Flavorings and Citric Acid Powder.

Organic Chamomile Hot Tea....
How can two very simple and natural ingredients create such a warmth and peace to a persons soul? I have no idea, but Shangri La has created this experience in a warm mug of Chamomile Tea.  I love that each box contains 20 Individually wrapped tea bags.  I feel that the individually wrapped tea bags helps maintain their freshness, until you enjoy your next cup of relaxation.

Caffeine free and naturally sweet, this blend of several fine chamomile flowers lingers sweetens the palette and calms the day. The honey like notes of the chamomile are enhanced by a touch of sweet licorice root. This tea take you a step out of tradition and into the world of delicious fantasy.

Organic Pure Mint Hot Tea....
This is one of Shangri La's  most popular teas, and I totally understand why after enjoying cup.  It is so soothing and refreshing.  I love enjoying a hot cup, especially if my stomach is a little upset or too full after a large meal.  It helps calm everything down.

Delicious straight up or with the addition of milk and sweetener, this is a real classic. Caffeine free and USDA Organic.

Now on to the giveaway details.....
