Well, I finally found my way back here. I have missed this. Anyway, I just wanted to point out that many tea companies are going to have special teas or special tea gifts available this holiday season. For those of you who are planning to do this, now is the time to let the tea writers know.
Why? Because during the Holidays we are bombarded by tea companies that all want us to carry their information at the same time. We cannot carry every one of them—unless you give us the time to do it.
Writers do actually have lives away from the computer and while we really, really want to maintain a good relationship with the tea sellers, sometimes it is impossible to keep up.
This holds for iced tea season, too. Tea companies should really get the word out in April, May at the latest. Writers can write a story and hold it until your release date if you request it. The earlier you send the information, the more likely it is that the writer or reviewer will have time for you.
I say all this with kind intentions because I really want to see every tea company get the attention they deserve.
Thanks so much for this post. We’re new on the tea scene and definitely offer a great Christmas gift idea – monthly tea tasting boxes. Could you give some insight into what you, as a tea writer, are looking for from companies interested in being featured?
Hi Tegan, sorry to take so long to get back to you. I did not know what to say. I looked at your site and there is almost nothing on it.
What I need to know is the details of what you are selling. I only saw three teas there. You mention a tea club, but there are not details on it.
I you have a great tea gift idea, by all means,send me all the facts possible and I will write an article as soon as possible.
