Friends, I am not even sure where to start with this post… my brain is all over the place.
I previously mentioned being IN LOVE with the Gaither Promise Tea gifted to me by a friend and wanting to search it out and order some, but to no avail.
Well, the internet led me to Scripture Tea who was the original manufacturer. However, their website did not show the tea I was searching for (“these are not the droids you’re searching for”). In fact, their website is quite dated.
It did reference a possible likely tea also featuring apple called “American Hero Tea”. But, there was NO sales information for it… only pictures. I was excited about this with July 4th being right around the corner and the description boasting “quotes from founding fathers, military and social heroes of yesterday and today” and even featuring 5 different examples on the photo. Wouldn’t that be fun to share?

I checked Amazon, and a seller called “God’s Outlet” in FL had some listed for only $5.30 +$3.98 shipping. I figured that was reasonable for a box of tea I was in love with and I naturally expected to receive a standard box of about 20 teabags (no amount was listed on the amazon page).
An additional clue from the Scripture Tea website was that 100 teabags in other flavors = $22.00.
Well, my tea arrived today and it was in a rather large box. Much to my surprise, I received a ziplocked back of ONE HUNDRED TEABAGS! Holy cow!!!
I now suspect the actual tea I may have wanted was Apple Cobbler –
|Note this random internet picture says Ltd. Ed.|
|Ingredients: Black tea, cinnamon, natural flavor,|
hibiscus, rosehips, roasted chicory,
blackberry leaves. Scripture John 14:2
Additionally, I love scripture as much as the next Jesus lovin’ girl, but these bags claim to be American Heroes as I mentioned. So far, I have opened 3 and each has a scripture on it. Time will tell if any tags read as promised.
Also, the seller claims this tea is decaffeinated, but I see nothing on the bag or photos I’ve found to confirm that.
I’m quite happy with the price naturally and it is a pleasant enough blend that I am happy to share. So if you would like to receive 10 teabags and live in the continental U.S.A, please follow these rules to enter my giveaway.
