I may have let this cool off too long, so I’ll definitely try it again, but for right now I am leaning towards not for me.

I made $55 at an elementary school fall festival, selling my lip balms and wax tarts. Really I only made like $10 after the table fee and lunch. Whatever, it was nice to be able to sell to people physically because you can’t smell stuff over the internet. It just annoyed me that just like the evil tea place, people were very good at freaking out over how good something was, told me they’d come back, and were never to be seen again.

I’m actually kind of disappointed in how expensive most of the shows/festivals and the like around here are. I’m sure a $200 fee is all fine and dandy when you don’t sell things that average $2 a pop. And for the most part they all seem far more art focused and it’s just irritating. It doesn’t seem like craft shows are a big thing down here at all, and the festivals like I said are all super pricey.

I was hoping to have tea earlier but it was SO warm I just didn’t even want to look at tea. So now it feels completely unseasonal to have this one.

It’s very different from the normal Eight Treasures Yabao. I love that one because of the goji berry especially. This one is a bit heavier on the pine than the berry. I can’t even really taste the elderberry. I’m also surprised the juniper berry isn’t the strongest note because I got a lot of them in the cup. Instead I think I can really taste the holy basil more than anything else. The jasmine and berries are in there too, but it’s just mostly that.

I may have to follow Bonnie’s lead here and try a rinse first. This would be right up my alley but I’d love to taste more than just the earthy, pine flavors. I’ve got an ounce so that can be done.

Still a great experience for you and I am glad you at least broke even and got your products out there because you have EXCELLENT products!!!

I noticed that the second steep was better which led me to believe that a rinse would have been appropriate to wake up the ingredients, especially the juniper and elderberry.

What about farmer’s markets?
