Around our house, there’s no argument: Mellow Monk is our favorite Japanese green tea, hands down. That’s why I’m so happy to have two packets of Mellow Monk tea to give away to two lucky readers.
I first discovered Mellow Monk several years ago when I had the opportunity to review them here. Ever since that first taste, we’ve kept some in stock at the house; in fact, it’s become a Christmas tradition for my husband to find some in his stocking each year. I’ll tell you what makes these teas so special: They’re truly artisanal, grown on small family farms in Japan. And since the company finds sustainable, environmental stewardship to be very important, you can feel good about any purchase you make.
Green tea lovers will enjoy browsing their selection of eleven exquisite teas. The two I’ll be giving away are Top Monk and Yuzu Dream. Top Monk is one of their bestsellers and is possibly our favorite as well (although Mountain Snow, this year’s stocking stuffer, is making it tougher for me to say that). It’s a clean tasting tea that earns the stamp of “mellow”, and we like its silky smoothness. Yuzu Dream is a green tea with sun-dried yuzu peel and is described as “sweet, tangy, and earthy, with citron flavors and notes of orange blossom and rose.” Sounds to me like we might need to stuff a spring stocking!
I’ll be choosing two winners for this giveaway. The Top Leaf tea contains 100 grams of loose leaf tea ($14.95 retail) and Yuzu Dream contains 50 grams of loose leaf tea ($21.95 retail). Follow the simple instructions below to get yourself entered. Or if you’re too darned impatient (I sympathize), visit Mellow Monk now and place your order. You’ll be enjoying a delicious cup before you can say, “Arigatou”.
