@ArgoTea offers 24 ways to Celebrate #NationalHotTeaMonth with New Garden Direct Collection

​January is Hot Tea Month and I wanted to let you know that Argo Tea, known for its all-natural tea-based signature drinks and loose-leaf teas, has introduced its most premium offering yet with the Garden Direct Collection. The new line includes 24 single estate teas that are sourced from the world’s premier tea growing regions, including India and Thailand. Each bottle features a design inspired by regional art, flowers and iconic patterns of the specific country where the tea was grown. The suggested retail price for each loose-leaf bottle varies from $10.95 to $39.95. 

This innovative collection was made possible because of the solid, long-standing relationships among Argo Tea and the various tea growers in each region. With a variety of flavors and levels of caffeine, ranging from popular pure teas like First Flush Darjeeling (Ambootia Tea Garden, India) to undiscovered teas like Hong Cha (Fang District, Thailand) or Sejak (Jeju Island, South Korea), the range of the collection provides unique offerings for all types of tea enthusiasts. I received the following Garden Direct teas from my friends at Argo Tea to sample :

Chamomile Blossoms – Grown in the Nile Delta at low altitude, this classic herbal tea exhibits a light, floral sweetness that is perfectly balanced by earthy undertones. * This is an herbal tea that I enjoyed having at the end of the day. I let it steep for about 6 mins and added just a little honey. I appreciated having it in its blossoms form as I believe that is what gave it the earthy, floral taste as described. These premium teas definitely lived up to my expectations. 

Armenian Mint – Delicious and refreshing, Armenian Mint tea revitalizes the mind, body and soul, naturally without caffeine *This one I have not tried yet but the smell of it is so inviting, invigorating and yes minty! I plan to enjoy this after my yoga practice. As a lover of exotic teas and blends, I’ll be sure to share my thoughts on my IG /Twitter @SobeSavvy   Stay Tuned!

“We literally traveled to all ends of the earth to source the best single estate teas for our Garden Direct Collection,” said Arsen Avakian, founder and CEO, Argo Tea. “Our partners not only make some of the best teas but also share in our commitment to making an impact on their communities. We’re proud to work with these world-renowned growers and are passionate about sharing these exceptional pure teas with enthusiasts everywhere.”

No matter your faith, there is one binding force that we all love… GIFTS !! There is only one thing more rewarding and gleeful than receiving a special gift, and that is actually GIVING a unique gift to that special someone. 

Finding that unique gift for that particular person on your list is always a challenge — especially as the clock counts down to the holidays.

And there are many new and updated items for the holidays and beyond!

My husband is the King of Brunch as he loves to cook breakfast for me and our daughter. So I thought the perfect gift for my Top Chef would be the Christmas Breakfast Gift Basket . 

This basket defies description. Imagine you wake up one cold morning with a bear’s appetite. Well this basket literally has the making of a breakfast for champions. All the items are what makes this part of our nation so special. Their website describes it as the following: “Inside a gorgeous basket, your recipient will discover delicious foods, like Maine’s juiciest blueberries, New Hampshire’s sweetest maple syrup, and Broadbent’s hickory-smoked pepper bacon, creating a lovely gift that’s guaranteed to make any morning unforgettable. ” The basket also had pancake/waffle mix and coffees, scone mix and jams. Simply incredible. Here is how it looks out the box:

I can’t wait for Christmas morning to unwrap and make a fantabulous Christmas breakfast with my family as my little one shreds gift wrapping all around the living room ! I’ll be sure to share some Christmas Brunch pics via @SobeSavvy !

I received this Toasting to the New Year Gift Basket and was impressed by how quick the shipment came and how beautiful the handcrafted basket was.This basket came in a keepsake steel wired basket filled with La Marca Prosecco , gourmet crackers and cheeses and Dolcetto Chocolate Wafer Bites.
