Official Steepster Tea of the Month Club - Would you be interested?

96 Replies

I’m all for it! I agree to start off with a low price range. And/Or maybe promote it a bit more by giving away the first 50 or something subscriptions for free? It’s a great idea, money is my only concern! $$$

I would love to sign up for new teas! I always get cold feet when buying a new tea in the case I don’t like it. I’d love to have access to 2-3 cups worth of a few, new sample teas every month.

I’d spend up to $15 for a monthly subscription. :)

Maybe you could gather the samples and package them up and offer it as a Steepster Select offering: here it is, these are the samples contained in it, this is how much it costs, buy it or not. Next month do it all over again.

I like this line of thinking!

Yes, exactly!

Something like this would be good. I see how having people committed to a subscription would probably increase overall participation, but personally I am a little less likely to participate because of this commitment.

Maybe consider offering it as both a subscription and as a select item, but having the subscribers paying a lower price.

All good ideas, but part of this is that we’re running it using a new product we’ve been working on, which necessitates that it uses a subscription participation plan – but we hope you’ll still enjoy it :).

I haven’t spoken up simply because it’s not something I would be likely to participate in. I try to minimize ordering online (though that’s hard to avoid if I want any company variety in my tea life) but more than that I just prefer to choose my own teas, especially if I’m going to pay for them. The size isn’t an issue (though a variety of smaller sizes appeals more than one 1 or 2 oz package), nor is the price it’s just not something I am not interested in, at the moment.

Hopefully within a few months.

I’d definitely be game. I’m already in one for $20/mth getting a sample ranging from 2-8oz of a single mystery tea each month, meaning I won’t know what it is til I get it.

I’d be willing to pay the same for a small set of samples. But I do agree with some others that the samples need to be at least big enough to get 3 or 4 cups from. Anything less and there’s really not enough to rate and decide if you want to buy more.

Oh plock! :(

(Not that I’m really truly surprised…) If and when you decide to expand to international shipping do I get advantage notification? :D

Ricky admin said

I’ll personally let you know :)

Jason admin said

@Rumpus Parable: Great to have you! We’d love to know what you think when you receive your first box.

Jason admin said

@Angrboda: I know, I know, aaggghh – sorry. We really wanted to do international but it was too many moving parts for this first month. We’ll be looking to ship international very soon though.

Angrboda said

Well, fine then. I suppose I can forgive you. :p
