  3. My favorite kind of tea would be Chai tea. Second would be Bubble tea, which is really just any kind of tea with those awesome tapioca bubble (balls?) in it.

    I do love most kinds of tea though. Darn, you made me think about tea, now I want some..... Haha.

  7. I am an avid tea drinker so it's kinda hard to pick but white tea and black tea are top choices, followed by Jasmine tea. Now I'm going to go put the kettle on. Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. My husband is a tea purist and will only drink the blackest of black teas, while my guilty pleasure is a spicy Constant Comment or Chai that is not real sweet, but to totally truthful I am a bit of a coffee snob. Thanks so much for participating in the Spring Blog Carnival giveaway! Your efforts are appreciated!

  9. Being Asian, I suppose I should like tea...but I don't find myself drinking it that often :)I much prefer orange juice xDD It's so refreshing! Nothing beats a cold glass of orange juice during summertime!

  10. My favorite kind of tea is Peppermint Tea with just a small drop of honey. I do prefer loose tea rather than tea bags. However, another tea I absolutely adore is the Yogi brand "Skin DeTox" Tea - which is the most fragrant tea I've ever tasted. It smells of roses, and has great ingredients like red clover, organic green tea, rose petals and hibiscus. (Gosh, I sound like a spokesperson for Yogi...lol :P).

    I'm a HUGE Austenite, so I REALLLLLLLY appreciate this opportunity! :D

    Thank you for hosting this amazingly generous giveaway and being part of this amazing blog hop! :D May Spring shower you with much joy!
