Your turn.

Will you likely enter the contest?


  1. Tea is my beverage of choice; I love the aroma of coffee but never cared for the taste. Go figure. :) A hot cup of tea first thing does wonders for me. Also love slightly sweetened iced tea.

    As for the contest, have been tossing around some ideas. If anything hits me, I'll enter. Thanks for sharing the info!

    Thanks, Karen. I hope you'll enter; it would be great to win! Wouldn't it? And it's free. :-)

  3. I drink both Tea and Coffee,

    Also on my blog you can see that I (pre) sell both Espresso Machines, Coffee Makers, and - Water Cookers - for (Writer's) Coffee- or Tea Breaks...,

    For what - Tea - is concerned, I drink all kinds of blends, also Mint, Only I don't think I need to enter the contest because I do grow my own Mint :)

    Thanks so much for sharing this interesting info. B/T/W/ Even if you grow your own mint, there's nothing wrong with getting a little more recognition for possibly winning the contest. :=)

  5. I am a tea drinker. I am also caffeine sensitive. So I fix herbal teas. I think it would be a neat thing to enter. I will have to put it on my list of things to do.

    How lovely to hear from you! I love tea, too. I hope you do enter. I'll be rooting for ya'! :-)

  7. Hi Jennifer,

    I am a tea girl, and can't start my day without a cup. I enjoy all flavors, but I love mint, ginger, green and black teas. I have some quotes floating around in my head, so I may enter. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Yasmin,

    ...So am I. I love the soothing properties of hot herbal teas. I'm sure, given your gift with poetry, you can come up with something clever. :-)

    Hey fellas!

    What about you guys in the reading audience?
    Do tell! :-)

  10. Jennifer, I'm a coffee gal. Love the occasional cup of tea - especially an orange spice variety. I love the idea of tea more than the taste of most teas, though. Thanks for the heads up on the contest!

  11. Sue,

    Somehow I had you figured for a tea lady. :-) I dig the orange spice too. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I'm a tea girl and start most mornings with a cup of black tea and a spot of honey. But I do enjoy some java every now and again for variety.

    Thanks for the heads up as to the contest. I have some thoughts and will likely enter. :-)

    Enjoy your week!

      Thanks, Janette! "Break a leg!" :-)

  13. Mmmm, although I don't think that I will be needing to win the contest, I do think that I might have some possble Ideas for such a Contest for Tea, and also some other ideas like for example a possible idea for a Novel Title, how about:

    'High Tea at
    the Writer's Collaboration Club'.

    It also makes me wonder if, besides Espresso-, Coffee Makers and Water Cookers I might also think about possibly (pre) selling Three Teer Cake Stands, Scoon and Clotted Cream on my Blog aswell :)

      ...Always a pleasure to have you share your thoughts. Much thanks! I can tell that the wheels are definitely turning. :-)

  14. Im a coffee guy really. Richard

    1. Jennifer Brown BanksJune 12, 2012 at 1:06 PM

      Hey there, Richard,

      Thanks for casting your preference. I always love to get a guy's perspective here! :-)

  15. 'O.K. it's official...,'

    A 3-Tier (Cup) Cake Stand is officially included
    in the - Writer's Kit - and for what the
    guy's perspective is concerned, it's a very
    sophisticated Groovy Metal Wired One,

    Although it goes without saying that on Amazon
    you can also find loads of other more 'Barbara Cartland'
    type Cake Stands :)
