The Republic of Tea Organic Assam Breakfast Black Tea Makes My Mornings Great!


Welcome Citizen
Founded in 1992, The Republic of Tea sparked a Tea Revolution. We began by canvassing the most prized tea gardens of the world for their worthiest leaves. Our mission was—and is—to see these teas steaming in the cups of men, women and children everywhere, and to emphasize a Sip by Sip Rather Than Gulp by Gulp lifestyle. In keeping with our identity as an independent republic, we designate our employees Ministers, our sales representatives as Ambassadors, our customers as Citizens and retail outlets as Embassies.

With supreme good fortune, we have progressed—constantly enriching people’s lives through the experience of premium teas, education and innovation. Our award-winning packaging includes teas and herbs available in specially designed air-tight, light-resistant tins containing either full-leaf teas and herbs or our signature round, unbleached tea bags, free of unnecessary envelopes, strings, tags or staples. Decaffeinated teas (using a natural CO2 method) varieties are also available. Most of our teas are Certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO).

Steam billows, the teapot fragrant. I enter a state of desires diminishing. Within the stillness, a further pleasure. Nothing coarse or superficial. This is drinking tea.

-THE MINISTER OF LEAVES

A socially and environmentally responsible business, The Republic of Tea is dedicated to sharing our prosperity by developing products to support worthy organizations, including the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Action Against Hunger and the Whole Planet Foundation. We are also a member of The Ethical Tea Partnership.

The Republic of Tea offers more than 300 premium teas, herbs, bottled iced teas and nature-inspired sipware. Our Citizens are invited to discover our offerings in natural and specialty gourmet retailers, restaurants, online or by calling 1-800-298-4TEA (4832).


Back In The Body Tea - The robust, malty character of this tea comes from pure, unblended Assam leaves grown in Northern India. Plentiful golden tips on leaves & hearty body qualify this tea at the top of its class. Certified Assam tea by the Tea Board of India.

Caffeine:

Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. 

Steeping Instructions

Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

Ingredients

Fine unblended organic Rembeng Estate Assam tea

My Review:
The Republic of Tea Organic Assam Breakfast Black Tea is wonderful! I love the fresh full flavor of this tea. The Republic of Tea Organic Assam Breakfast Black Tea is the perfect way to start my morning. I've been waking up early before the kids and watching the sun rise while sipping this tea and I can honestly say it's put me in a great mood every morning. Just having those few moments of quiet when the house isn't stirring to sip a tea like this and just focus on each sip, breathe and take in the beauty of the morning has totally changed me. I also have to add that getting that little boost of caffeine before the kids are up is awesome! I absolutely love the flavor of this tea and how cute the little bags are. The Republic of Tea Organic Assam Breakfast Black Tea comes in a cute tin and would also make a wonderful gift for anyone who loves tea.

I highly recommend The Republic of Tea Organic Assam Breakfast Black Tea!

My favorite scents are the lemongrass and sweet orange because we have two cats and they make the kitty room smell incredibly fresh. Now when I come home even when I haven't used these oils in a few days my house smells good. I don't notice and funky smells and the air just smells clean. It's so strange that the air smells clean, but it truly does. It even seems easier to breathe. I wish I had these when I was pregnant and couldn't stand funky smells because these oils would have saved me. Having purchased many other oils at much higher prices I'd have to say these oils seem pretty similar but are much more affordable. I love that these Anjou Aromatherapy Top 6 Essential Oils Gift Kit comes in a cute box that can be easily wrapped.

Torie & Howard's Organic Candy Makes the Perfect Easter Treat! - #EASTER2016


At the onset of his career, aspiring interior design guru and founder of iconic home fragrance brand Slatkin & Co. Howard Slatkin bumped into an equally adventurous color consultant named Torie Burke. Little did they know the journey that lay before them. As their businesses flourished, their career paths became entwined and a great partnership was forged. Together they would ride to the top of their respective professions, working on some of the most important and prestigious design projects in the world.

Wherever their jobs would take them, their days would be filled working on design projects, while their evenings were spent celebrating local cuisine, exploring farmers markets and visiting restaurants that ranged from the humble to the renowned. Their passion eventually grew into the dream of one day starting their own specialty food company.

Coincidentally, along the road somewhere, each of them experienced a health related event that would have a significant impact on their life. For Howard, losing over a hundred pounds led to a renewed focus on eating as healthy and nutritionally conscious as possible. On his new lifestyle regimen, it became paramount to Howard that he optimize his consumption by eating only the most delicious and healthful foods and ensuring that every single calorie consumed had earned its pleasure quotient. For Torie, it was the onset of severe food allergies that forced her to make serious changes in her life and in her diet. These new restrictions made finding satisfying snacks all the more difficult, and all the more important.

With a new dedication to nutrition in their lives and the relative lack of healthy, indulgent snacks on the market, it became apparent that the time was right to fulfill their dream of starting their own snack food company. And so Torie & Howard was born, out of a mutual love of delicious & all natural foods that soothe the soul and nourish the body.

My Review:
Torie & Howard's Organic Candy is absolutely delicious! I honestly don't know why candy needs to contain fake and artificial ingredients because there's nothing better than all natural delicious flavors like Torie & Howard's Organic Candy offers. I tried to pick a favorite but just couldn't. I love every flavor!

Torie & Howard's Chewie Fruities are wonderfully chewy and sweet just like all chewy candy should be. I also really like that the flavor combinations because they're a little unique but terrifically delicious. Torie & Howard's Organic Hard Candy is yummy! I love that these are hard candy because they're perfect for sucking on when you're craving something sweet. Torie & Howard's Handbag is incredibly cute and would make a terrific gift for just about anyone. It contains an assortment of Torie & Howard's Organic Hard Candy.

Torie & Howard's Organic Hard Candy would make a terrific gift this Easter!

I See Me Personalized My Snuggle Bunny Gift Set - #EASTER2016


Welcome to I See Me! where we provide the highest quality, most personalized children's books available. We opened for business in May of 2000, after a year of active product development. My husband Allan and I received a personalized book as a gift for our first son in 1998. While we loved the fact that it was personalized, we thought that the illustrations could have been much better and the story more customized to the child. Thus I See Me! was born.

Allan, who is a graphic designer, and I developed the first book My Very Own Name as a team. Our goal was to produce an educational book that would teach young children how to recognize letters and spell their names. After I developed the concept and wrote the book, we brainstormed together to develop the characters in the book. Allan found and hired the illustrator, and designed the book, while I wrote the business plan.

We are pleased to say our books have become popular among celebrities including Courteney Cox, Brooke Shields and Jessica Alba.

Our mission is to increase self esteem in children through personalized books that celebrate the uniqueness of each child. The goal of our books is to show each child how absolutely unique and special he or she is, to teach the child how to spell his or her name, and to build vocabulary skills.

We hope that you enjoy the books!

--Maia Haag, author and CEO of I See Me! Inc.


An adorable snuggle bunny counts 10 ways that it loves your child, in this beautifully illustrated storybook. Includes the book plus a cuddly plush bunny for the child to snuggle with!

In this heartwarming personalized storybook, your child will hear all the ways that Snuggle Bunny loves him or her throughout the day. From a hug in the morning to snuggle time in the evening, the Snuggle Bunny counts ten ways that it expresses affection for your child. Written by award-winning author Maia Haag and illustrated by John Butler, this 8.5”x 8.5” hardcover book with 20 pages is sure to become a classic bedtime reading ritual. The companion plush Snuggle Bunny is 12” with floppy ears and super-soft fur. When ordering, customers have the option to upload a photo of their child to appear on the dedication page of the book. Children love seeing their names and photos in print!


Plush bunny is safe for children from birth and up.

My Review:
I See Me Personalized My Snuggle Bunny Gift Set makes the perfect gift for kids the Easter! I absolutely love how soft the My Snuggle Bunny is! Giving children a personalized book is awesome because it makes them feel special. The book has an adorably cute story and my daughter really loves seeing her name throughout the book. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and the bunny in the story looks exactly like the soft plush bunny that comes in this set. This would be a terrific gift for baby's first Easter or for any young child who loves stuffed animals!

Education Insight's Nancy B’s Science Club® Microscope and Activity Journal Review


Who are we? Like you, many of us are parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Some of us used to be teachers, and a few of us love to bake. We're art collectors, foodies, DIYers, comic book enthusiasts, animal lovers, yogis, and so much more. We've got lots of interests, but we've united around a single passion: to bring you kid-powered play through innovative toys, games, and educational tools.

Why EI?

We're playful:

Our team motto is, "Where work is play." We love to laugh, ride our bright-red scooter through the halls, and are tickled to test out new games. Our love of play transfers into the toys, games, and tools we create, making many learning experiences, well, more playful.

We're creative:

We know how to capture your child's attention and imagination. From packaging to product, we think outside of the toy box to help your child learn about the world around them. Sometimes that means indulging crazy ideas and borrowing inspiration from all around us.

We believe in learning through play:

We prefer active learning to encourage your child to create learning experiences in real life. Let's just say kids are somewhat over-served in the tech department these days.

We're experts in our fields:

We've been helping kids learn to think for the last 50+ years. We take great pride in working with experts worldwide–from scientists to teachers to artists–to ensure that what we're doing is always the very best it can be.

Our Playful Promise:

We want to exceed your expectations. We work hard to make sure our products are top-quality, and that kids feel confident and successful after playing with our toys, games, or tools. If our products are not giving your kid an exceptional experience, then you can simply return it and you will get your money back.


Zoom in on the fun with the Nancy B Microscope! This 2-in-1 light and dissecting microscope gives up-close views—30x, 100x, and 400x magnifications—of anything you can imagine, from peacock feathers and goldfish scales to your own skin and cheek cells. The included keepsake journal features 22 pages of fun science experiments for kids and activities from observation to creative writing, drawing, and more.

My Review:
Education Insight's Nancy B’s Science Club® Microscope and Activity Journal is an absolutely wonderful product for kids! As a homeschooling mom I've been on the hunt for the perfect microscope for my daughter. She absolutely loves nature and learning about new things so I knew Nancy B’s Science Club® Microscope and Activity Journal would be something she'd really enjoy. I'm blown away by the quality of this Nancy B’s Science Club® Microscope. I've seen many microscopes on my hunt for the perfect one and none of them even compare to this one. I love that it has a light both on top and on bottom. It works perfectly and does 30x, 100x, and 400x magnifications which is perfect for viewing even the tiniest of things. I also love that it comes with a few sample slides so you can begin using the microscope right away. You can also use the blank slides to create your own slides which is my daughters favorite thing to do. My daughter enjoys finding new things to view and is extremely excited to use her Activity Journal to document her findings.

Nancy B’s Science Club® Microscope and Activity Journal is a fabulous set. I highly recommend it! It comes with everything you need to get started and is sure to be enjoyed for years to come!
