Organic Tea Giveaway (Winners Announced)

Romanza - Organic Tea

Spring is in the air! And a spring themed giveaway is on AZ Cookbok!

I am announcing a super awesome giveaway to celebrate this beautiful time of the year with you and also to thank you for supporting my blog throughout many seasons, spring or winter:)

As of recently I’ve become a fan of teas of all sorts. My love for tea is only natural. I come from a tea-drinking country where people take pride in tea ceremonies and drink tea day and night (and it doesn’t affect our sleep at all!). We mostly drink pure strong black tea. Here in the US, I’ve become enamored with teas I’d never heard of before—green, read, oolong and flavored tea blends, oh  my!

But…I’d been on the lookout for the best quality tea out there for the longest time until I finally discovered  Tea Amore a year ago at a local event where they had their stand.

Tea Amore is now the only tea company I buy tea from and I trust. They know what they are doing, they love what they are doing, and they offer only the best quality and value to their customers. They blend the best tea I’ve ever tried so far and their flavor combinations are out of this world. Pure, subtle, exotic, interesting. Most of the company’s teas are organic. The ingredients blended in with the tea for added flavor are all natural. Guys, I am not paid to say all these nice things about Tea Amore—I love their tea and I believe good things deserve to be shared with everybody.

From my conversation with the founder and the staff of Tea Amore I learned so much about their tea selection and blending process. And here’s what left me speechless! Creating one single tea blend is a 22-step process that can take as long as 2 months to complete. What a dedication! You can see only a few of their many tea blends in the picture below (snapped them at the event, excuse the weird angles).

Tea Amore

Guess what? Tea Amore is generously giving away 1-ounce packets of Romanza tea (1 packet is enough to brew up to 15 cups of tea, or even more depending on how strong you like your tea) to 8  AZ Cookbook readers from any part of the word (isn’t it amazing!). All you have to do is enter the giveaway right here on the blog for the chance to be one of the lucky winners!

About Romanza Tea Blend: 

Romanza blend is organic black tea infused with sensuous vanilla, candy hearts and pomegranate (picture 1). Milk and sugar can be added to make this tea taste even more splendid. Romanza blend brings the boldness and an enchanting aroma to the new season.

    How to Dry Mint Leaves

    When life gives you mint, dry it. And store it. Because you can use dried mint in so many ways in the kitchen and stocking up on it to last through a long time is always a good idea. Dried mint is one of my most important pantry staples and I often use it in Azerbaijani and Turkish dishes. The...

    In Turkey, it is menemen, in many parts of the Middle East, it is shakshuka (claimed to be a North African import), and in Azerbaijan, it is pomidor chighirtmasi, also known as pomidor-yumurta (literally, “tomato-egg”). What do these dishes have in common? In them, tomatoes and eggs prove to be a match made in heaven, or rather a skillet. Although...

    A few days ago, I ventured into making my very first blueberry Bundt cake to take to a picnic with friends. I thought it would be a perfect accompaniment to black tea we all took there in our thermoses to enjoy in the open air. (If you ask why black tea and why any tea at all, it’s because no...
