Take a Tea Quiz and Win!

Post image for Take a Tea Quiz and Win!

by Amber on February 29, 2012

Today we’re doing something a little differently here on B&B, simply because I LOVE Leap Day. A whole extra 24 hours? All year long we wish for more time. Well, people, THIS is it!

If you follow along here regularly, you know that I am a Keurig K-Cup ambassador, and the official recipe developer for Green Mountain Coffee. It’s a marriage made in heaven, because I sure do love me some caffeine, and my Keurig is the quickest, freshest, best way to get it to me.

This month, instead talking about the myriad of coffees available for the Keurig, we’re going to be talking tea. Being married to a Brit, I know tea. We pretty much drink an equal amount of coffee and tea in our household, and we drink a LOT of hot drinks period.

Celestial Seasonings and Bigelow are two big brand tea names you’ve known from the tea bag section of the grocery store. They’re making k-cup portion packs, and reminding us all to take a moment and reflect. That’s something you do over a cup of tea that you might not always do over a cup of coffee.

In my mind, coffee is for the rush out the door. Tea is for the mid-afternoon slow down, when you need a minute to reflect over your day.

In the spirit of that, today we’re having a reflective quiz over tea. One lucky B&B reader to answer all the questions correctly will win a prize!


Keurig Tea Package

2 perfect tea mugs
2 boxes of tea k-cup portion packs


Now on to the questions!


Please leave your numbered answers in a comment below. The quiz will remain open until Monday, March 6th.

For extra entries, please make sure you stop by the Facebook pages for Celestial Seasonings and Bigelow. They offer free samples, contests, and lots of info about your favorite teas!

Leave a separate comment for liking each facebook page, AFTER answering the quiz questions.


 
Disclaimer: This giveaway is provided to you by Keurig as part of my K-cup Ambassadorship. All opinions expressed in the post are my own, based on my experiences with Celestial Seasonings and Bigelow Teas for the Keurig Brewer. Prize will be shipped directly by Keurig. Winner will be chosen via random number generator, but must also have all the correct answers to win. Winner will have until 3/8 to claim their prize, or we will choose another winner.
