Red Leaf Tea: Eggnog Matcha & a Giveaway!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
 
It really is nice to be able to indulge in a drink that is actually packed full of nutritional benefits. And Matcha, a powdered form of green tea leaves, is just that.


The folks at Red Leaf Tea were kind enough to send me another of their flavored Matchas to try, Eggnog Matcha. How did they know how much I love my eggnog?! (Seriously, we go through a lot during the holidays.) So again, I decided to whip up a cold latte, just with a few tweaks. 

Favorite mason jar glass & glass straw!
I always get the flavored eggnogs, since I'm not really a fan of the plain. So I wasn't too sure how I would like a basic eggnog flavor. Well, after I blended my Eggnog Matcha, almost 1C. milk & a few ice cubes I tasted it. Yea, not my cup of tea (literally). So I added 1tsp. of vanilla & 3 heaping tsp. of sugar and blended again. Perfect. 


One  lucky winner will receive one small bag of Eggnog Matcha!

The giveaway will conclude on at 12:00 a.m. est on Saturday 1/25/14. Winners will be announced via rafflecopter & in a separate blog post which will be published no later than 3:00 p.m. on Saturday 1/25/14. Winners will also be notified via email & announced on the Smith and Blessings facebook page. Winners will have 48 hours to submit shipping information, which will then be passed on to Red Leaf Tea for distribution of product. If 48 hours has lapsed, a new winner will be picked & then will also have 48 hours to submit their information. *Giveaway open to U.S. residents only.
