Whoa. I am really excited about these puppies! Back story: I went to a gala on Saturday night for the Samaritan Village, a great organization that helps women end cycles of prostitution and/or substance addiction in their lives in Central Florida. At the gala, we entered a raffle and bid on a Teavana gift basket for the silent auction. We won the gift basket AND we won one of the raffles (comedy club tickets)!!! I have wanted a clear teapot for a long time and so when we saw it at the silent auction (and it was in our price range), I said “LET’S DO THIS!”
We won the basket for $40, which upon closer inspection, the retail value of the clear pot alone is around $40, so we got a major deal and 100% of the money went to an amazing cause! Also included in the gift basket: a basket (which I consider to be an integral part of the deal, lol!), $25 gift card to Teavana, a white ceramic teapot, two different strainers, an air tight loose leaf tea container, and a two-sided, loose leaf measuring spoon! HOLLA!
With my Teavana gift card, you better believe I will be purchasing some of those blooming tea balls (a tea flower ball that opens up and “blooms” during the steeping process), which look beautiful in a clear teapot ;)
Time for a tea party!!! Who is coming over!?!
