CoolCanucks Blog Contest – 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!




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!




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


PG013 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!!




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 a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend this won­der­ful com­pany to everyone!!


The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at 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!!!!!
