Wine Teas origin?
I’ve seen several companies now carrying what looks to be the exact same line of wine-infused teas, and thought I’d crowd-source to see if anyone on Steepster knows where they’re coming from.
Specifically: Praise Tea and Red Leaf Tea both have a Cabernet Rooibos, David’s Tea and Red Leaf both have a Marsala black (although one claims the base is Indian, the other says it’s Chinese, they sound the same) and all three have a White (Raspberry) Champagne and a Cabernet Assam. Some links (I think the teas look the same, as well):
Does anybody know who the original source is? Red Leaf has the largest selection, but I don’t believe they blend their own or offer wholesale, so I’m thinking there may be a separate wholesale company I haven’t found…
@Teabird – there are a total of six wine infused tea blends. The blends are ordered via wholesale from a direct importer. As of yet, there aren’t many companies who carry them or even know of them. So far, they are a rarity.
We at Praise Tea have only chosen to carry three of them, with a slight variation in the name. The flavor profiles are: White Raspberry Champagne; Sonoma (white tea); Silician (white tea); Assam Cabernet; Marsala (black); Shaman’s Secret (rooibos).
Hope this answers your question.
@Cofftea – we will consider that request. @teabird – you’re welcome.
Evil Laugh Not to pooh-pooh the wine teas (and yes, I know who is blending them [edit: and they produce quality blends]), but wait till you see what we are doing next week. Full blown Vincent Price “Thriller” laugh! =D
This better not be a late release week- I’m way too interested and getting impatient already lol …That being said I know you are insanely stressed and busy this week.
ooohh…the suspense. Alright, Frank, you convinced me to wait on my orderings and see what you’ve come up with!
Great laugh to choose just in time for Halloween….here’s a link if you want a refresher. You can find ANYTHING on the interwebs:)
