My Kind of Tea Party

This tea party has nothing to do with any political movements. This tea party involves two of my favorite things, tea and a good sale. I absolutely love sitting down with a nice cup of tea. I love experimenting with different flavors and learning the benefits of various blends. The upside is that tea is also good for you. It is filled with antioxidants that are beneficial for your health. I like to try different brands, flavors and styles of tea. I use loose teas and bagged teas.

I first discovered Stash Tea when the Target SuperStore opened in our area. I was checking out the tea isle and of course the sale signs drew my attention to a tea brand that I wasn't familiar with. I picked out a couple of flavors and as the saying goes, the rest is history. Stash Tea comes in a variety of flavors and is available in regular and decaf in most of their blends. One of my favorite blends from Stash is their Chocolate Hazelnut Tea. I add a touch of sugar and creamer to the Chocolate Hazelnut Tea and it is absolutely delicious. It is like dessert in a cup.

The Tea Party going on now is on Amazon.com. The currently have their Stash Tea on sale. You may place a one time order at the sale price or you can choose the subscribe and save option and save an additional 15%. For those you who are not familiar with Amazon's subscribe and save program you may sign up for deliveries every 1,2,3 or 6 months shipping to your home automatically. Shipping is free and the 15% discount continues to be applied. Please note though that the base price of the item may go up or down so you may want to check it before your scheduled shipment. If you change your mind about subscribe and save you may cancel at any time. To manage your subscribe and save account, go to my account. Then click on subscribe and save and you can change the frequency of shipments or cancel all together. That's not all, this offer is even better since you until June 30, 2011 use coupon code STASHT97.  There are several blends available and several flavors.  Currently the Chocolate Hazelnut Decaf is on sale for $15.63 for 6- 18ct boxes (total of 108 tea bags).  If you choose subscribe and save the price is $13.29 (.12 per tea bag).  You may then use the coupon code above for an additional discount increasing your savings.  The Stash Tea site's price on this tea is approx. .18 a bag before shipping and tax.  So overall Amazon is offering a great deal.  Stop by and treat yourself to some tea.  I'd love to hear your feedback on how you like your tea, flavors you recommend etc.

Here, Home, Hope by author Kaira Rouda ~ Book Review


I enjoy reading but rarely allow myself enough time to enjoy a good book.  I am so glad that I participated in the One 2 One network book review of Kaira Rouda's book Here, Home, Hope.   I really had trouble putting this book down.  The main character Kelly was so easy to relate too.  Kelly lives in "Grandville" which ironically we find is not always grand.  We are taken on Kelly's midlife journey to change the direction of her life now that her children are getting older and that she is facing her 40th birthday.  Kelly introduces us to several of her friends and through her journey she gains insight that things aren't always what they seem.  Those she has been envious of are actually envying her life.  This book is a quick read.  I would say it is a must read for this summer.  I was also very excited to see that this is only the first of several novels Kaira Rouda has planned taking place in Grandville.  I've included the book's video trailer but honestly it doesn't do the book justice.




Visit Kaira Rouda's official website here.  Check out the book tour here: http://www.kairarouda.com/events/ .   Follow Kaira Rouda on Twitter and Facebook.

If you are an Amazon shopper Here, Home, Hope by Kaira Rouda is currently available for $10.20 (List $15).  This would make a great book for a book club or for you to read and share with your friends.  I'd love to hear your feedback after you've read Kaira Rouda's book Here, Home, Hope.  Please stop by and let us know what you think about this book.

*Disclosure:  As a member of One 2 One Network I received a copy of Kaira Rouda's Here, Home, Hope for review.  The review is my own work and honest opinion.
