I could go on and on about how happy I am with my current tea selection. Every single tea and blend was selected by myself and my taste tester friends after many reviews and discussions. This has led to some much heated debate between blends that are similar from different vendors and which should be the “winner”.
Case in point, Sandy’s Chillin’ Vanilla. I carry so many Vanilla Rooibos variations that you would think I really didn’t need to carry another. Red Rocks, Betty’s Blend, Vanilla Rooibos, and Tranquility should have been enough. However, Sandy insisted that the Chillin’ Vanilla should be carried because it was honeybush and not rooibos, therefore, it is unique enough. She was so insistent that we named the blend after her.
The latest debate we have is over ginger peach. I think fall will arrive before we make a final decision! There are two excellent vendors who make a Ginger Peach tea. One is a black tea base so it rules out my caffeine free customers. Sophia, however, said it is worth it because it is so delicious. The other is a lovely herbal blend that we all really enjoy. Both are great hot and iced. It is really down to the caffeine issue. I think I have some lovely black tea blends now but they don’t sell as well as the herbals. However, I want to have something new and exciting for my caffeinated customers. So, it is one big loop. Can I sell that much Ginger Peach tea to carry both? That is the question.
So, as you look through the current lists of tea we have in stock you can see different trends. If there is a blend with almond, ginger or vanilla we seem to carry it.
