Can we rewind to September? We shot right through Fall and now Christmas is looming. Work has been non-stop the last three months and promises to be hectic through the end of the year. We’re not complaining, though ~ we love making our customers happy! And Christmas is the happiest season of all!
Most of the last three months have been devoted to our annual Open House and this year’s event was the biggest ever. Thank you to all of you who came out to sniff, sample, browse and shop our wares over the course of two days. We saw lots of old friends, some who came from our old stomping grounds, and many new customers, one who came from as far as New Jersey! The word has spread near and far of our spectacular displays and unique tea offerings.
This year’s biggest selling flavor was our new “Mama’s Spicy Carrot Cake” Specialty Rooibos, and it’s not surprising! Oh, my, it is one yummy brew! From now until the end of the year, everyone who places an order for any item gets a free sample, enough to make 2-3 cups to try. We’re betting you’ll come back for more!
Another yummy flavor for the holidays is our “Cookies for Santa” Specialty Black. It’s rich in oatmeal cookie taste with candy sprinkles that will make the “Jolly Ole Elf” smile with delight. The kids will be pleased, too!
Our “Collections” have been an overwhelming success! Check out the “Doctor Who,” “Downton” and “Royal” sections in the shop for lots of great Christmas gift ideas for fans. In our “Scones and More” section you will find our new, delicious and versatile Marmalades, great for toast, served with cheese and as a glaze on pork! We’ve also added Bead on a Wire’s custom designed Beaded Infusers and other new items to the “Tea Accessories” section with even more items to come so stay tuned.
Our hope this year is that, in the midst of the mayhem of packaging tea and packing up orders, that we not lose sight of the real “Reason for the Season.” It’s not about our “bottom line” it’s about the One whose birth we celebrate. May you and yours experience the sights and sounds of the season, as well as the Joy and Hope that we can all experience because of that first Christmas. From all of us here at TEA FOR ALL REASONS, Merry Christmas and a healthy and blessed New Year!
