Holiday Favorites Vol. 3 - Just Add Honey

Last Sunday I attended the annual Metro-Atlanta Mocha Moms Holiday Tea. It was a beautiful gathering. A celebration of friendship, motherhood, and the 5th anniversary of our chapter. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a gift; a tea sampler from Just Add Honey . As you can tell from the photo (which doesn't really do it justice, Santa do you hear me? I need a camera!), it was packaged beautifully.

We were given three teas: Peach (we are in Georgia after all), Holiday, and an herbal Mint tea. We were also given filters to place the loose tea in, as well as tubes of honey. It really was absolutely gorgeous. But the real test was in the taste. Take a look at my video to see my reaction.




A few nuances of Just Add Honey really impressed me. The packaging clearly indicated the level of caffeine - two of the teas were medium and the other was caffeine free. The ingredients were all natural - no preservatives and the brewing instructions were very straight forward. And finally, I remain blown away by the aesthetic beauty of the packaging.

I absolutely love this tea! I really can't speak highly enough of it. When I learned that this small business is owned by an expecting mother right here in Atlanta, it was a double bonus. Great tea and a Mom owned business, you can't beat that! Place an order, I am sure that Just Add Honey will become a favorite of yours too.

I love getting surprise presents. I love coffee and tea. I bet that tea was really yummy. I loved your big old tea cup/coffee mug. You guys look great but I must admit, I was a little disappointed...where were your hats? Your Christmas hats? LOL I promise to go check out Just Add Honey. :)

what a nice gift! I love the part where your boy is watching Yo Gabba Gabba! LOL!! You need a radio show or talk show Renee!

CaraBee said...

What a wonderful idea! I love tea and have a glass pretty much every morning. I was also trying to think of fun little gifts and this is perfect!

Petula said...

Love your video and that tea sounds great. BTW: I am a member of the Fayetteville Mocha Moms, but I think I have been missing some events. :) I better check my other email address to see what's going on.

I don't like hot beverages! None. Weird right? I suppose I could brew then chill... Oh and I predict Renee is going to be a local lifestyle correspondent in Atlanta. You're great on camera girl.

That sounds like a great group of women and some fabulous tea. I am a tea drinker, although I haven't had a cup in a while, perhaps I'll start the kettle to percolating. One of my favs is peppermint tea, but now you have my taste buds curious =)

Justice Jonesie said...

I'm trying to drink more tea since it has so many benefits! Sounds delicious. Sounds like your Mocha chapter is great. Don't forget Jack & Jill. *wink.

You are doing awesome with the videos. I haven't posted any on my blog yet - just on newbaby.com. Maybe I'll transfer them over or wait until I get better at it! Tea sounds great.

Zen Ventures said...

I love Tea too. I drink it like water! I think it is wonderful to know that the owner is also a local just makes it more special.

Justice Fergie said...

Michele@Integrated Mother said...

I love your vlogs! This one had me wanting some Just Add Honey tea! :)

San Diego Momma said...

I'm loving the vlogging! It's so cool to see my faves TALK. Awesome.

The tea sounds wonderful, by the way, but it's gonna have to fight my coffee for me.

Dori said...

Those teas sound really good :)

HeatherY said...

I love tea! It looks you had such a good time!

Weith Kick said...

I LOVE TEA!!! Let me say that again. I LOVE TEA!!! I am a tea junkie. No coffee for me, only tea. In the morning, every morning, I start out my day with at least 3 cups of hot green tea. Plain, no sugar, just plain. And then I also love black tea, hot or cold, also without sweetener.

Are you holding a toddler and a videocamera at the same time. Wow. You are multi-talented.

Leslie said...

Oooh, it's so pretty!! I'll have to check this out because drinking tea makes me feel so grown up.....and slightly English...

ChefDruck said...

I'll have to try this tea! I love to drink tea. So relaxing.

Is Mocha Moms a group for married (or formally so) women?
