National hot tea month giveaway from Red Rose and Salada.

Did you know that January is National Hot Tea Month?  I think we should all take the opportunity to have an English tea party complete with scones.  Salada and Red Rose Tea are wanting to celebrate with us.


Salada is North America’s oldest packaged tea manufacturer and has been on the market since 1892.  The Salada blend of teas is recognized by the trade and consumer alike as a quality blend of fine teas.  Teas from as many as thirty different “gardens” are blended at Salada to guarantee a perfect, satisfying cup of tea, time after time. Try the Salada Active Blend Green Tea, available in Energy Boost and Fiber Boost blends.  It gives you that added energy kick and is a good way to add more fiber into your daily diet.

red rose

Red Rose is blended today with the same care as when it was established more than a century ago. Red Rose contains high-grown black teas from Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Kenya, India and Indonesia. The result is a blend that produces a full-flavored cup of tea for the tea lover.

With Red Rose Simply Indulgent Tea, zero-calorie black tea that is naturally flavored to taste like dessert melting in your mouth, tea time has never been so decadent.
