A giveaway for Mother's Day - The Rabbit Hole tea pack
Does your mum like tea?
Do you want to give her the coolest gift ever?
Do YOU like tea?
Do you want to buy your mum something else and win this for yourself?
Once upon a time a brand new little organic tea company tweeted me and asked if I'd like to try their tea. Just randomly, no strings. They probably didn't even know I was a blogger. They sent me three packs of tea to try and just said "I hope you like it!" and left it at that.
Oh my god. I did.
I liked their tea a LOT.
Over time they've sent me other bits and pieces, and when they found out I was pregnant, sent me a huge batch of their Ginger Snap tea to help combat my morning sickness. Again, for no other reason than they are the super-kindest and most thoughtful gals in the tea business.
Ladies and jellyspoons, meet The Rabbit Hole Tea. Corinne and Amara went to the World Tea Expo in Vegas in 2010 and came back inspired. They made their own organic tea in the most phenomenal flavours, and made it available online. Their mission? "To serve you tastebud tingling tea. No teabags, no chemicals, no disrespecting farmers or the environment. Just natural, organic and fairly traded leaf."
I love them so bad.
I love them so bad I knew you guys would too, so I asked them pretty please would they like to maybe, perhaps, please, package up something for my lovely readers as a gift, and they did!
Their tea is insane. Flavours like White Peony, Lavender Cream, Berry Bomb, Lemon Aid, Licorice Allsort and Toffee Apple (zomg toffee apple) are available alongside regular types of tea and so many others.
They have been awesome enough to not only provide a huge batch of their brand new Grey Goddess tea released in time for Mother's Day, but also a Bodum Travel Tea Press (which is like a tea plunger in a travel cup! I'm obsessed with mine) and SIX MONTHS OF FREE HAND-CRAFTED ORGANIC TEA SENT DIRECT TO YOUR DOOR. A new one every month.
Not even kidding. Not even jealous...
All's you gotta do is leave a comment below describing your first tea memory. Mine is my nana making me tea and telling me I couldn't have coffee because I was a little kid and it would kill me. I thought I was so cool having a cup of tea, dressed in one of nana's old aprons, swinging my leg just like she did and watching Wheel of Fortune. And getting annoyed when she knew all the answers all the damn time.
I'll get the Rabbit Hole gals to choose their favourite, then I will post off your little goody bag just in time for Mother's Day.
Competition will close Friday, May 4 at 9am. I will email the winner so please make sure you're contactable! Open to Australian residents only. Judged on creativity and whatever else the girls say. It's not a game of chance, so make sure you actually answer the question!
