Just saw you got a mention from Joe Hill too. Holy crickey, you’re blowing up Frank!!

Yeah. It’s CRAZY COOL. I just put it together. Joe Hill is Stephen King’s SON. I have goosebumps. LOL.

Hold that thought. New tea blend: “Goosebumps”.

Clearly a name like that should be Frank’s debut with gooseberry flavour.

You could also consider “Starstruck” ;) Not sure what that would contain though. What do stars taste like?

That’s great!! I know a few authors that drink tea Lynn Flewelling for one. I don’t know if she’s on steepster but she drinks tea and most of her characters do too! I love her books! I can’t remember if I’ve read any Neil Gaiman books.. but I’ve seen a few of the movies my favourite movie being Stardust :D

So, Joe Hill just tweeted a pic of himself, wide-eyed and holding up his pouch of Weeping Angel tea with the caption, “With my weeping angel tea from @52teas. I’M NOT BLINKING.”

HA! I tweeted in response: “@joe_hill Pretty sure this is one of my favorite pictures of all time. I hope you enjoy the tea!” and he replied: “@52teas you’d have to be made of stone not to enjoy the Weeping Angel tea.”

Awesome!

Frank, I highly recommend that you put a form that allows people to put their email address to know when the tea is back in stock (this can also just subscribe them to the regular newsletter). Because I imagine a lot of new people might go to your website, see the tea is not in stock, and just give up.
