If You Know Me, You Know I LOVE My Tea! Register Now For Your FREE Chick-Fil-A Tea, August 1-13,2011

I have a confession: My name is Maura, and I’m a tea-a-holic.

I’m a daily tea drinker. Chick-Fil-A is my “dealer” of choice, and it helps that there’s one located right around the corner from my house. My Twitter friends tease me about my check-ins, my clients give me gift cards to feed the need, and I’m rarely out and about without that red-and-white styrofoam cup in my car filled with freshly brewed refreshment.

How happy am I, then, to hear the words “Chick-Fil-A” and “free” and “tea” in the same sentence?

It’s true! From August 1 through 13, 2011, Chick-Fil-A is giving away free half-gallons of their tea to you and me for The Great Tea Giveaway!
