CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Two Leaves Tea Company Review & Giveaway!!

Thursday, September 27th, 2012



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 Two Leaves Tea Com­pany 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 a some of their famous Pais­ley teas, and as expected, they tasted just as good as described! We all had a field-day exper­i­ment­ing all of the scrump­tious fla­vors in that box! These are the most deli­cious teas that I have tried yet!!



At Two Leaves Tea Com­pany, you will find the best organic 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:


jas­mine petal green

assam break­fast

earl grey




gen mai cha

three tea sampler

bet­ter morn­ing blend

bet­ter belly blend

bet­ter rest blend

moun­tain high chai

orange sen­cha


And so many more!!




“Founded in 2005, two leaves tea com­pany™ began with a jour­ney. Founder Richard Rosen­feld trav­elled the world on busi­ness, where meet­ings are syn­ony­mous with amaz­ingly fla­vor­ful cups of tea. After return­ing to the states, Richard looked every­where for a good cuppa’ tea…but had a hard time find­ing one.

Richard trav­elled to gar­dens in China, Sri Lanka and Japan to estab­lish rela­tion­ships with tea grow­ers in order to bring pre­mium, whole-leaf tea from the best har­vests to tea drinkers around the world. Two leaves tea com­pany™ has been rec­og­nized for the pas­sion, care and effort that goes into cup­ping our tea, with awards such as the Best New Tea award for 2005–2006 from the Spe­cialty Cof­fee Asso­ci­a­tion of the United States, and the People’s Choice Award at the Great Cana­dian Tea Steep Off in 2006.”


“Our expe­ri­ences at the gar­dens have taught us one incred­i­bly impor­tant thing — how to rec­og­nize and appre­ci­ate great organic whole leaf tea. Our com­mit­ment to “go there” means we’re pro­vid­ing our cus­tomers with tea that tastes as if it has been plucked and steeped direct from the gardens.

Two leaves tea com­pany™ was one of the pio­neers of the pyra­mid shaped tea sachet that allows tea drinkers to expe­ri­ence whole leaf tea in the com­fort of their own home. The sachet gives the whole tea leaves the abil­ity to expand, yield­ing a rich, fla­vor­ful cuppa’ that can’t be paralleled.”



You just can­not go wrong when shop­ping at the Two Leaves Tea Com­pany. Their prices are very rea­son­able, their cus­tomer ser­vice skills are phe­nom­e­nal, and their deliv­ery time was also beyond out­stand­ing! I strongly rec­om­mend this scrump­tious tea to every­one!! At this time, two leaves’ pri­mary dis­tri­b­u­tion in Canada is in food­ser­vice (cafes and restau­rants). Some of these cafes/coffee houses may also sell whole boxes of their tea. How­ever, all of their prod­ucts are sold on the web­site

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!!!!!
