I participated in Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers and received The Republic of Tea products to facilitate my review. #MomBlogTourFF

We all know that I love me some coffee but what you probably don’t know is that I am also a tea drinker. I love iced tea on a hot day. Or a warm tea with lemon and honey when I am not feeling well. But the one tea that I’ve never really been able to get into is green tea. Well, until I tried The Republic of Tea’s SuperGreen Teas at the Fancy Food Show.

As we learned about the SuperGreen Teas blend organic matcha and hand-picked green tea leaves with powerful herbs like lavender and elderflower, I was kind of not looking forward to tasting the teas. But, I am so glad I did! My mind was definitely opened and I found a green tea I could love! 

SuperGreen Teas are packaged in airtight steel tins that keep the teas fresh and prevent oxidation of the matcha. Each tin contains 36 tea bags and is priced at $13, making each serving only 36 cents.
