Paisley Tea Co. Organic Tea Review and Giveaway

Surrounded by coffee drinkers, here in America, it is sometimes really hard for me to get a really good cup of tea. Coffee has never been a favorite of mine so I turn to tea for my morning pick-me-up. My favorite has always been Earl Grey originally due to the fact that Captain Picard always ordered it :) (yes I am a trekkie!) and then after I tasted it I fell in love with the flavor! While my local grocery store has versions that are drinkable I have struggled to find one that both satisfies my taste for strong flavors and support of sustainable sources (that way I can enjoy my tea for years to come!) I am SO happy to announce that I have found a company that more than supplies both of my needs! Paisely Tea Co. (a division of Two Leaves and a Bud tea company) came to life in March of 2012. Two Leaves and a Bud Tea Company is based in Basalt, Colorado and was founded in 2005 by Richard Rosenfeld who, after travelling the world for business, became frustrated at not finding a quality "cuppa" tea at home. They have a commitment to provide exceptional whole leaf tea from only the best harvests. Also all of the tea is certified organic, Fair Trade and Non-GMO Project verified. I found the Paisley tag line "more than one might expect" a very true statment indeed.
For this review I had the pleasure of trying both the Double Earl Grey and the English Breakfast. They were both AMAZING! The English breakfast was aromatic and light (as it should be) and for the Earl Grey I didn't think it was possible to have so much flavor packed in to one tea packet! Personally I prefer my tea hot with cream and sugar. I used less cream and sugar than I normally do because I wanted the flavor to shine and shine it did! I have to say I will NOT be going back to my boring store bought tea again!
OH I almost forgot the best part (at least for me) this tea is TOTALLY affordable! 1 box of the Earl Grey is only $5.95 and can be purchased online at So for those that want to step out of borning and ordinary (at least when it comes to tea) my recommendations is Paisely Tea Co! I have to say that I am quite impressed with them and can only come to the conclusion that if thier English style tea is this good than the rest of the flavors that they offer will be just as exceptional. So if English tea is not your forte they do offer 19 different varieties including green tea, chamomile, chai and others! Now for the giveaway! Two Leaves Tea Company has offered to give 2 of my readers a chance to taste Paisely Tea for themselves. Each winner will get 2 boxes of tea from the Paisley tea line (winners choice). Enter below in the rafflecopter form and good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway
