Last week’s tea of the week was:
Blackberry Zomba Green Tea
There is only ONE – count them ONE! – taster left: http://52teas.com/blackberry-zomba-green-tea-taster/
The large are SOLD OUT!
At some point today, I’ll be adding Cotton Candy White Tea to the website, so please watch for that (I’ll update this message when it’s up!)
Also: Starting tomorrow, June 1st, we switch to the Metric System and all teas packaged for sale after June 1st will be sold in grams rather than ounces. All the teas packaged for sale prior to June 1st will still be sold in ounces as we’re not going to relabel or repackage any of the teas – but all future teas will be sold in 15g packages (taster size) and 50g packages (large size).
Finally: Starting tomorrow, all orders $25 or more will receive a very special bonus tea – this is a tea that was specially crafted for our customers as a gift to celebrate our anniversary – and it isn’t available for sale. It is only available as a bonus to subscribers and to customers in June while supplies last!!! Watch for the announcement about this special tea!
So happy that I already secured my taste in the kickstarter! I’m most excited for this blend!
Congrats on your first blend, it sounds amazing.
Dammit I SO wanted to buy your first weekly creation. But I haaaaate melon :(
Yeah, this is pretty melon-y, so I’m not going to try to say, ‘oh the melon is delicate’ or anything like that. These three ingredients – the Wuyi, the cucumber flavor and the melon flavor – work really well together. But, if you don’t like melon, you really shouldn’t get it.
But I do thank you for wanting to buy it! :)
Sorry to have crushed you, but it really wouldn’t do me any favors to be dishonest with you … hopefully, you’ll want to try some of my other flavors when we get them out there. I’ve got a list – a very very long list that seems to grow daily – of flavor ideas. A very small percentage of them are melon teas, so I think we’re safe!
Oooh, I want! But I’ll probably wait for the reblend. It hurts me on the inside to think about only buying one tea at a time, I want at least three in my basket!
By the way, there are more of the Cucumber Cantaloupe Oolong teas on the site now too!
Mmmm… breakfast in a mug. That sounds good.
I just placed an order-first one since your take over, I believe. I’m so excited! I really haven’t been a huge fan of 52Teas, to be honest. I mainly just liked that one maple cheesecake oolong…that I am totally blanking on the name of…but I pledged money to get that tea on your kickstarter. xD And am still dying to get that one!
But anyway, I am excited that all the old popular blends are back, and I get a chance to try them and I have so much faith that you are going to be doing an amazing job with everything and yeah…Heh, I literally have not slept for nearly 24 hours, sorry for rambling. I’m just so excited!!! Congrats again for taking over! I’m so happy for you! And so happy I will get to try your blends which I’m sure will be wonderful! :D :D
Thank you so much for the order. The reblends will be finished by the end of July, and I’m thinking that the next reblend that I work on is the Maple Cheesecake Tie Guan Yin!
It’s been really exciting. I’m realizing just how much I loved the blending aspect of tea and how much I missed it. I’m so happy that I’m doing this again and with the freedom that comes with coming up with a new flavor every week I think I’m going to have a lot of fun. And since I have a ‘boss’ and she can take care of most of the business aspect of things, it frees me up to be creative and not worry about stuff that isn’t creative.
I appreciate the order – it should be in the mail either tomorrow or Wednesday!
Oh my goodness, yah yah yah!! I loveee that one sooo much! Please don’t change that one too much, unless it’s like adding more maple flavor :P It was seriously just incredible. Too good for words! I can’t wait to get my pre-order of that one! :D
Aww I’m so happy for you! Feel like the old owner was kinda wearing himself thin by the last year it felt like…or maybe those who have been around longer than me, for the last few years, so it’s really great he was willing to hand it over to a new and more excited owner…hope that doesn’t sound too harsh or anything. I just think you’re perfect for the job! I’m really happy for you-you definitely deserve this! (:
Dangg you are fast! I got my “awaiting shipment” order already! Very on top of things. Oh! And thank you for having such cheap shipping! :D Cheap shipping is always a plus in my world! (:
I know it’s a big favorite so I won’t change that one much – I’m even keeping the same supplier for the TieGuanYin so it should be pretty close (I hope) to the original batch.
We aren’t here to make a buck on shipping, we just want to cover the costs of the shipping because it keeps going up! I think we found a sweet spot at $2 for most orders, it actually costs just a little more than that but because of the actual weight of the teas is difficult to get the shipping calculator to calculate exact shipping until time of shipment, we decided to go with something that’s close. I hope that makes sense.
Enjoy the teas!
