—–Update: Contest now closed! Thanks to everyone for participating!—–
Do you love iced tea? I’m not sure what the weather is like in your part of the world, but where I am, it has been heating up! During a warm spell, the one thing I crave more than anything is iced tea. And when that craving hits, I want it fast.
However, as much as I adore iced tea, when I’m feeling parched I usually just reach for ice water–or worse, go thirsty. This is caused by excessive laziness on my part when it comes to preparing beverages on the fly. While I’m pounding away at my computer during a long day with tight deadlines, the last thing I want to do is stop and brew a batch of tea–and I’m usually too scatterbrained to think ahead to prepare it the night before. Traditional methods of making iced tea often take the extra effort of first brewing and then allowing the tea time to chill–which can seem like eternity for a thirsty gal like myself. But no more!
Today I am excited to offer up a wonderful product to one lucky winner that will bring you perfectly brewed iced tea in a flash! One winner will receive a Takeya Flash Chilled Ice Tea Maker + a box of their premium whole leaf tea. This perfect tea maker brews incredibly tasty and super cold iced tea in no time flat, quenching your thirst, while leaving you with plenty of time to get on with your day.
One of the best features of this product, in my opinion, is that you are guaranteed a magnificent pitcher of iced tea if you follow the expert advice on the tea packages–each perfected to bring out the best flavor of each tea blend. And , most importantly, this is hands down some of the best iced tea I have ever tasted–so good it had me reaching for glass after glass.
Some product specs (from Takeya’s site):
patented brew and
flash chill technology
- Combining our tea infuser design with our patented Flash Chill method, the Flash Chill Beverage System is fast and easy to use. The large infuser allows the whole leaf teas to open and fully release aromas and flavors, while the Flash Chill method takes tea from boiling hot to ice cold in seconds.
