CoolCanucks Review of the Tea Galllerie!

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

 

 

 

Being huge tea drinkers at my house as well as at my par­ents, I just knew that I had to try all of the huge assort­ment of teas that Tea Gal­lerie car­ries! After com­ing across their web­site, my eyes lit­er­ally popped when I saw many dif­fer­ent mouth­wa­ter­ing fla­vors that I have never tried before!!

I was sent two deli­cious teas to sam­ple, and as expected, they tasted just as good as described! I received one pack­age in Pas­sion­fruit Black, as well as White Coconut Crème! My mother and I had a field-day exper­i­ment­ing with these 2 scrump­tious fla­vors! Also, the pack­ag­ing is so pretty, just like on their website!

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Tea Gal­lerie, you will find the best tea ever! They offer so many vari­eties of yummy teas that you can try for your­self, or even offer as gifts for your fam­ily and friends! Almost every­one that I know is a tea-lover, and now I have the per­fect gift in mind for that per­son on my hard to buy for list!!

 

 

Choose from:

 

mate, dessert, oolong, black, green, white, herbal, pu-erh, Tea For Preg­nancy, Tea For Her, Tea For Him, TEA SWEETS, TEAWARE, TEAPOT

 

And even choose from a gor­geous array of tea gifts to splurge on your­self, or for a gift to give to some­one dear to you on that spe­cial occasion!!

 

 

 

You just can­not go wrong when shop­ping at the Tea Gal­lerie. Their prices are very rea­son­able, their cus­tomer ser­vice skills are phe­nom­e­nal, and their deliv­ery time was also beyond outstanding!

 

 

 

 

 

Buy It!! Avail­able online at Tea Gal­lerie

CoolCanucks Blog Contest – EnjoyingTea.com Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

 

I don’t know about you, but I cer­tainly love my tea! Tea offers us all an oppor­tu­nity for quiet con­tem­pla­tion and shared moments of inti­macy with friends, enabling us to reflect, be inspired and relax.

Cof­fee is impor­tant of course, but some­how life with­out tea is not some­thing I want to imag­ine. So here I’m going to reveal many of the rea­sons I love tea; the ways that I think the world is a bet­ter place because of it!

When we talk about tea we nat­u­rally think of black tea, served with milk and/or sugar, made in a teapot and served in teacups. And there’s a cor­rect way to hold the cup in polite soci­ety — pinky up!

How­ever, tea is not just one drink, it is many. There are the true teas which derive from the tea plant. And then there are many other bev­er­ages, tisanes or herbal teas, that are tea-like drinks. These are also delicious!

 

enjoyingtea_2114_15648027

 

Tea is grown in many parts of the world, and in those places where it doesn’t grow it has been imported for so long that it is part of the cul­ture, like in Britain for one exam­ple! Tea is able to adapt itself to any cul­ture, truly a uni­ver­sal drink. That’s one rea­son why I think the world is a bet­ter place because of tea!

 

enjoyingtea_2114_98444240

 

Tea can be enjoyed indoors, or out­side! Tea can be enjoyed alone or in the com­pany of oth­ers. It can be drunk in the quiet soli­tude of one’s room, sur­rounded by the won­der of nature, or in the midst of the hus­tle and bus­tle of city life. Drink­ing a cup of tea pro­vides an oppor­tu­nity for quiet con­tem­pla­tion or shared moments of inti­macy with others.

After stum­bling upon EnjoyingTea.com on the lovely world wide web, I was beyond ecsta­tic when they agreed to a review and give­away with CoolCanucks!

EnjoyingTea.com is a lead­ing online retailer of qual­ity tea, teabags, teapots, tea sets, and tea acces­sories. We were estab­lished in 2002 in the city of San Francisco.

The peo­ple at EnjoyingTea.com are ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing our cus­tomers with a com­plete tea expe­ri­ence. Along with our fine selec­tions of tea, we also offer ele­gant tea sets and beau­ti­ful teapots. Not only will we offer a won­der­ful selec­tion at a great value, but we also strive to edu­cate on the many health ben­e­fits of tea. We will present inter­est­ing facts about tea and also show the many inter­est­ing appli­ca­tion of tea.

EnjoyingTea.com stands for “Afford­able Lux­u­ri­ous Enjoyment”.”

If you need to take a break, relax, unwind, take time out from whatever’s mak­ing you busy and stressed, have a cup of tea! If it’s a chilly day, warm your­self up with a nice hot cup of tea. If you’re too hot, have a refresh­ing cup of tea, hot tea or iced tea, both seem to work!

When you meet with friends, a cup of tea always sets a good atmos­phere. If you’re hav­ing an impor­tant meet­ing with col­leagues, or peo­ple you don’t get along with so well, serv­ing tea is a great idea. And when times are tough, a nice cup of tea always helps, always comforts.

 

enjoyingtea_2114_15595674

 

EnjoyingTea.com car­ries an exten­sive array of many dif­fer­ent teas and teabags, as well as Tea Sets, Tea Pots, Tea Cups, and Tea Acces­sories! Online shop­ping with them is a com­plete snap as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized for your easy shop­ping convenience!

EnjoyingTea.com sent me a phe­nom­e­nal Smart Tea Maker to review, along with 3 won­der­ful pack­ages of tea! I really enjoyed the taste of the Earl Grey Tea, the Eng­lish Break­fast Tea, and the Dragon Well Green Tea!!

 

enjoyingtea_2114_93597059

 

Tea is not just deli­cious, relax­ing, yet refresh­ing, it’s also good for you.

Tea is high in antiox­i­dants. These are mol­e­cules that slow or pre­vent the oxi­da­tion of other mol­e­cules. Oxi­da­tion reac­tions can pro­duce free rad­i­cals, which start chain reac­tions that dam­age cells. So antiox­i­dants reduce the num­ber of free rad­i­cals, and thus ben­e­fit the body, pro­tect­ing it from can­cers and other diseases.

Tea with­out milk (or sugar, of course) has no calo­ries. Drink­ing tea with milk adds calo­ries, but there are ben­e­fits from the milk such as cal­cium and valu­able minerals.

Although true teas con­tain caf­feine (which is both good and bad), it con­tains much less than caf­feine than cof­fee. Inter­est­ingly, the form of caf­feine in tea seems to be dif­fer­ent from that in cof­fee such that it doesn’t have its neg­a­tive impact (buzz then let down), but rather is a delight­fully refresh­ing drink!

 

I give EnjoyingTea.com a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend this won­der­ful com­pany to everyone!!

 

The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at EnjoyingTea.com have gra­ciously offered to give one lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win the exact same set that I was sent to review which is the Smart Tea Maker, along with 3 won­der­ful pack­ages of tea! SWEET!!!!!

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Sappho Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

     

    JoAnn Fowler is the bril­liant make-up artist and busi­ness woman behind Sap­pho Cos­met­ics and the faces of many seem­ingly flaw­less celebs includ­ing the cast of Twi­light and the L-Word!

    While work­ing in film and TV she decided to cre­ate a cos­met­ics line free of syn­thetic chem­i­cals that would feel good and that wouldn’t com­pro­mise on colours. Its almost impos­si­ble to find toxic-free make-up, even in com­mon min­eral makeup that you assume is all-natural.

    Jo wants you to know what you’re putting on your body, and Sap­pho Cos­met­ics is the safe nat­ural alter­na­tive to makeup today!

     

    “A new, green, eco con­scious, organic based makeup line. Free of syn­thetic chem­i­cals, Sap­pho Cos­met­ics are sexy and look and feel great on your skin. We have dili­gently searched for for­mu­la­tions made with ingre­di­ents that sur­pass the EU stan­dards for safer cosmetics.

    Each prod­uct has been cho­sen for it’s purity, ease of appli­ca­tion, qual­ity and beauty. We have found and devel­oped prod­ucts that we believe are truly won­der­ful…. pack­aged for util­ity and recy­cla­bil­ity and made in North Amer­ica. Some have organic con­tent, some are vegan — all are cru­elty, paraben and phtha­late free.

    In all cases, Sap­pho Cos­met­ics promises full dis­clo­sure of ingredients.”

    Sap­pho Cos­met­ics the col­lec­tion is used on the set of The L Word. The prod­ucts include a chemical-free foun­da­tion, as well as a range of eye­shad­ows, eye lin­ers, lip­sticks, glosses, blushes, and pow­ders in vibrant colours!

     

    Sap­pho Cos­met­ics specif­i­cally does not use Parabens and Pftha­lates. Parabens are used to pre­serve cos­met­ics, and pftha­lates are used to soften and make cos­met­ics silky. Both have been linked to var­i­ous forms of can­cer. Sap­pho Cos­met­ics uses nat­ural mate­ri­als for their cos­met­ics and refuses to test their prod­ucts on animals.

    Accord­ing to their web­site “Sap­pho Cos­met­ics is all about mak­ing up fear­lessly. It’s about learn­ing how to make up and being as dar­ing as you please but even more impor­tantly it’s about putting prod­ucts on our faces and bod­ies that will not harm us.”

    I had the extreme plea­sure of being able to review these prod­ucts, and was beyond impressed with them! I will be order­ing more in the near future, and totally rec­om­mend Sap­pho Cos­met­ics to everyone!!

     

    The very kind and gen­er­ous JoAnn from Sap­pho Cos­met­ics has gen­er­ously offered to give one very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win the fol­low­ing from her web­site: A “Dare to MakeUp Fear­lessly Cos­metic Pack­age” which con­sists of ecoLux­u­ri­ous cos­met­ics, which are hand coloured and 100% free of all syn­thetic chem­i­cals! This will include a base (liq­uid or pow­der — as you wish), a set­ting pow­der, a pressed eye­shadow, a loose eye­shadow, a blush and a lip gloss! SWEET!!!!!
