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).
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.

Thank you for organising this giveaway, Ms Farida. 🙂 As you mentioned, Azerbaijanis are tea-drinkers. And I also love tea, especially organic tea. I prefer drinking green tea. I love Olinda, jasmin and thyme tea. That’s why I wish myself good luck! 🙂
My favourite tea is Earl Grey (pure or with cardamom flavour). I love to drink it especially for breakfast instead of coffee:)
Thank you so much for this opportunity you gave to us, Farida. As you said, We – Azerbaijani-turkish people are the Most Best tea-drinkers in the world 🙂 My favorite tea is Earl Grey one. 🙂
I mostly like green tea, especially jasmin green tea. Among othe flavours mango, peach, bergamot. Among black teas earl Gray is my favourite. I’m open to try any other flavour combinations as well
I usually drink black tea, but after I tried PassionFruite tea from Tea Amore – it’s my favorite now!
I was so glad that there was lots of tea in Baku when I brought my son home. I like earl grey tea with favors of peach or raspberry. And of course Lipton lol
I love green tea of all different varieties. I’ve been drinking a lot of green tea with rose recently. It’s yummy and smells wonderful.
I drink black tea most of the time – probably the influence of my Irish grandmother. My favorite flavored tea is chai. Thanks for the giveaway.
I love chai tea and matcha….but there are so many delicious teas it is fun to experiment! I am answering this but cannot enter the contest because I’m not in Facebook. Good luck to you all!!
Feride: Diana, you can still participate and by submitting a comment, you are participating, no worries:) Not everybody has a facebook account. Good luck!
Thank you for this post. I am also looking for the best quality tea and haven’t found one yet. I have been drinking Turkish tea ( Chaykur). I found the flavour very pure. But it is very hard to find Chaykur in Canada. I would love to try Tea Amore.
Vanilla caramel is a favorite lately!
Feride, thank you for this competition to win tea! I love tea and everything related to it, so I’m really glad to hear about Tea Amore here. My favorite tea is all variations of black tea, especially black tea with bergamot, cardamom, jasmine, cloves, thyme or various berries. Cheers! 🙂
I love green and black chai tea latte. I do not mean that commercial kind that you pour from a carton. I mean the tea with strong amounts of cinnamon, cardamom and etc. I drink it with agave/maple syrup and milk.
Feridecim, I am crazy about teas, and thanks a lot for this idea! I really hope to win this competition )) my favorite ones are black with berries, black with bergamot and I am crazy about green with strawberry!! Going to check Tea Amore no matter what ( hope I can find them online )
Thanks again and good luck, everybody 😉

I really like mint tea and lemon lift also I have been brewing black tea lately. So flavored black tea is delicious.
Thank you for your beautiful website. I enjoy your recipes.
I just started drinking tea over coffee I drink black tea and green
I like all green tea selections, especially Jasmine & Mint. Tea refreshes and revives me. I like to call tea my “oasis of relaxation” in a busy day. As being Azeri I can’t imagine my day without a nice cup of tea.
My Favorite is Green Tea, in Spearmint or Licorice Root. Thanks 🙂

This is a copy/paste of a comment posted by Diane Robinson Proctor on AZ Cookbook’s facebook page before 9 PM PST (Diane must have thought comments were to be posted under facebook notification about the giveaway): I love many teas. Friut teas, black teas, white teas, green teas. My fav is likely a peach tea (at least for today).
Thank You SO Much!
