So what’s the status of this? I saw one person mention that they got an invite, but I haven’t heard anything from anyone else yet.

Yeah, I was followed but I was never messaged or anything.

Hi folks,

Thanks for the keen interest. We’re sending out invites in waves to make sure we can handle demand, and to get good learnings from the first waves who join. Rest assured you will all get an invite sooner than later – expect something in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks & happy steeping!

I received an invite a while ago. I order three free tea samples 10 days ago and I’m waiting to receive them. Hopefully I’ll get an update soon on what’s going on. I like the website’s idea. It’s kind of like the netflix queue for tea. You’re supposed to review the teas that you receive and then you have a chance to order three more samples. You could obviously purchase tea from the website.

Sil select said

Ahh that’s kinda of neat sounding. Can’t wait for my invite.

Babble said

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. My main concern was if people had gotten the samples that they put a request in for. Let us know when you get them.

Erika M. said

Okay. I’ll definitely let you know. Maybe they’ll send some more people invites soon.

Thanks Erika – Your description is great. Netflix for tea. Better job than I could do. BTW – your sample is on the way, so it should arrive soon!

The goal with this service is to make tea discovery easy and fun. We think our teas are great, and we think if you try them you’ll agree. We also believe that people shouldn’t have to pay to sample our teas… when you walk into a tea store, you don’t pay to try a tea. Why should you have to do that online?

It’s a pretty simple idea, but one we hope will catch on. We feel the U.S. is finally ready to discover great tea (as opposed to the bagged shavings we grew up with), and our mission is help make that happen!

Will it be offerd to Canadians aswell?

Sil select said

Cedes – they did say at the start it was open to us Canucks, so here’s hoping :)

Erika M. said

Thanks for the update C.R. I look forward to receiving the tea samples and finding a new tea that I’ll love. :)

We will offer it to Canadians from the get-go! One of our founders and many of our friends are from Canada. Also, it can get so cold in the winter that we know you’ll need some great teas to keep you warm!

Enjoy!
C.R.
