Beverly Broome of Midland, Texas, says she was “thrilled and surprised” to win the Tea Lover’s Gift Set of Teamotions teas, tea maker and scoop in the recent Food Channel Store/Facebook Fan sweepstakes. Although she admits she enters lots of contests and has won a number of times (enough airline miles for several vacations), Broome says winning never gets old.
Broome is a big tea drinker, so she says she “can’t wait to receive it.” The collection of comforting Teamotions teas is on the way, Beverly.
“I enjoy being surrounded by a collection of tea mugs from Hawaii and my favorite teas,” Broome says. “I brew hot tea – it is my go-to ‘comfort,’ my greatest daily pleasure and favorite way to battle the blues. So this win could hardly have been more well-suited.”
Broome lives with a muscle disease that often leaves her homebound. “In my own small way, I identify with the two sisters who founded the Teamotions company,” she says. “I brew many flavors of teas and drink them in a variety of ways, some without additives, some with honey and others with natural cane sugar from Maui. Having lived in Hawaii for many years, I can’t live without a little sugar every now and then! If I would allow myself to drink as much tea as I’d like to each day, it could easily become my biggest vice!”
“Life is good,” Broome says, mentioning her husband of 38 years, Larry, and her three children and three grandchildren who live nearby. She says she’s traveled far and wide in her life, but these days, she notes, you can “often find me visiting foodchannel.com.”
