Brace Yourselves... Black Friday/Cyber Monday is coming!
I wanted to get this thread started so we can start talking about the upcoming Black Friday/Cyber Monday tea deals. There were a ton last year and I’m hoping we will see some good ones this year too. My tea budget is ready!
In addition, do any retailers maybe wanna give us a sneak peak at some of the Black Friday deals you may be offering, perhaps?
ohhhh I wonder if this will carry over to Canadian purchases! Pay day is Thursday!!
tattoooed – with most of the companies based in the US i suspect we’ll see a bunch. I’ve never seen a retailer refuse to allow non us residents to take advantage of sales. :) (suppose there’s always a first time for everything)
Yeah, I don’t think any retailer in the US will deny anyone outside, either. Just like I don’t think any Canadian companies will deny any US person any Boxing Day specials.
Sil, I know you will be very happy with this…we will definitely open our Black Friday/Cyber Monday to Canada, especially now that we are all set to ship there!
Great idea, Rachel! Maybe we could make this the official list of black friday/cyber monday deals when the time comes! It would be a nice resource!
Hey… Maybe. It depends on how much discussion we have going on in this thread. It might even be buried before then. We’ll have to see. I was hoping we could get some insight though, from retailers especially, on what deals we can expect so we can start saving our hard earned tea pennies.
Samovar has 15% off all black teas for the entire month of November. Code is blacknov
Don’t forget about Small Business Saturday! :)
We will be doing a Black Friday & Cyber Monday sale.
“drink some of your damn tea first!”
I think that can apply to a lot of us Steepsters :-p
Rachel – that’s true..however SOMEONE keeps talking about having boxes all over the place and not knowing what’s in half of them… So unless she’s dropping some off at my place grin (my cupboards just over 100…hers is closer to 500)
Butiki Teas posted there sale info for the weekend on the website :D I’m stuck deciding between the eggnog day or guayusa day…

Just got an e-mail for Yogic Chai – they are doing a black friday sale of 40% off tea, but here’s the catch, you have to preorder by Nov 15 to get the deal and it will ship on Nov 25. After that it’s only 25% off their tea.
Never ordered from them but have heard very good things about them and their shipping is pretty reasonable too. For those who have ordered, any suggestions?
Their genmaicha chais are amazing, especially the lemongrass! I ordered that and the coconut kukicha from the sale, but pretty much you can’t go wrong with Yogic.
Thanks for the recommendations. I will have to check those out! I was looking at the herbal ones, too.
I really love Yogic Chai … Any of the chai blends that look intriguing to you, I highly recommend. They really have an excellent blend of spices. It’s one of the “simpler” chai blends (that is to say, they don’t have a lot of extra spices in the blend), but it’s just precisely tuned, I think, to produce a very delicious and flavorful cup.
Just ordered my first Yogic Chai. Looking forward to trying it. Thank you for sharing!!
Has anyone heard anything about their orders yet? I haven’t heard about it being shipped.
I was just thinking the same thing. When I went to their website, under status it says processing. It’s been a few weeks of processing :(
Mine is processing too. I sent them an email. I’m sure they are busy with black friday still. Hopefully I’ll hear something by the end of the week. I’ll post an update if I hear anything.
Just received this response:
Hi Emily, all pre-paid Black Friday orders started processing and shipping yesterday. We are processing them in the order that they were received.
We don’t have any blends on stock. We blend them based on each order to ensure the freshness of the botanicals used.
The rest of the orders we still have pending will be shipped between tomorrow and Thursday.
Thank you for your understanding
Ricardo @ Yogic Chai
Mine too :) I find it strange that it took them so long. I’ve gotten several orders I placed at a later date from other companies. Not really a big deal, but they probably should communicate more. Excited to try it though!!
Mine shipped too! I think they must have just had more orders than they anticipated, and since they mix everything to order it must have been a real handful. Given the deep discount, I’m fine with the shipping time!
