Giveaway - win one of three subscriptions to Mr Earl Tea!

Thanks to everyone who has participated in the giveaway by leaving a comment below!  I'm not surprised that we got so many comments because these teas are pretty special!

Congratulations to:

  1. The Bobster - whose favourite tea is Orange Pekoe, because it adds pep to his step.
  2. James Harley - whose favourite tea is a strong Yorkshire tea, as it packs a caffeinated punch and has flavours reminiscent of the homeland.
  3. Larniegr - who composed the following poem: For an early morning kickstart / It's English Breakfast for me / Would you like some sugar with that?' / 'Yes, one please!'


The Bobster, James and Larnie have until Sunday, 4 May 2014 to email Mr Earl Tea (hello@mrearltea.com.au) with their names and postal addresses.  Emily Stone is expecting your email.

The tea will be sent via post in time for Mothers Day.

Earlier this year, I had the chance to try out the fabulous tea from Mr Earl Tea - an online boutique tea subscription service and shop.  How does this work?

You pick the subscription of your choice (one, three or six months), and each month you get three premium loose-leaf tea varieties, with details on where they’re sourced and instructions on how to brew the perfect cup for that particular type of tea.  You can also purchase the teas individually on the website too.

For Mothers’ Day, the founder for Mr Earl Tea, Emily Stone, has given the Eat and Be Merry Crew three one-month subscriptions to giveaway to our lucky readers!  Each subscription comes with three types of tea.

How to win your one-month subscription!

Choosing a favourite tea is almost akin to choosing a favourite kid- different reasons to love them haha. Currently my favourite in this autumn weather would be genmaicha, love the roasted notes from the brown rice.

My favourite tea would have to be English breakfast tea - it is a very good pick me up in the afternoon!

Matcha, of course! It's packed full of antioxidants & has the versatility of being served as a beverage & used in cooking. Think- green tea smoked salmon, matcha ice cream.... Yum!

Rosehip & Hibiscus Tea antibacterial, anti-viral, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. I add Hibiscus for a hint of lemon flavor.

Earl Grey is the most awesome tea
Earl grey is the tea for me
A touch of sugar so it's sweet
Apart from that I drink it neat

I love Earl Grey. Fragrant and exotic. While I am drinking it I feel as if I am sitting by a lake in the garden of a grand country estate.

Lemon herbal tea is my favourite all-rounder - it kick starts me in the morning yet relaxes me of a night!

English Breakfast Tea is robust and rich... just how I like my mornings!!

Sonia Cattley said...

Lemon and Ginger....hot tea and winter colds are my perfect combination....both prevention and "deal with"

English Breakfast with a decent dash of milk. It's even more enjoyable when it's made by someone else and the cup is washed at the end.

Blend of pu-erh tea, black tea, Oolong tea and Mate tea. The fruity flavours combined with the weight loss properties is a winner for me!

Laura S said...

After eating naughty things,
My tummy feels tied up in strings.
A peppermint tea is usually a help,
But mother swears by blanched kelp!

Hilary Miller said...

A nice strong black tea, with chili flakes and toffee pieces in to balance spice and sweet, with added ginger pieces for wintery warmth.

Tess Lindsay said...

My favourite tea - whatever I am drinking at the time... right now it's peppermint, later it may be fruity - I'm an equal opportunity tea drinker...

Wendy Daniels said...

I LOVE Earl Grey because I used to love drinking it with my grandma, the aroma brings back that moment of HAPPINESS

marilyn said...

I like English Breakfast , but try lots of different ones. I have a box that I store my tea bags in, and sometimes for morning tea, first one out is what we have.
My husband always
says "that was a good cup of tea"

Princess said...
