Our Turmeric Blends are a Hit!

Last week we introduced three new Turmeric Tea Blends: Organic Turmeric Citrus Zest, Organic Turmeric Relief, and Organic Turmeric Chai. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.

That first week alone, Turmeric Teas accounted for 23% of all online sales. That's significant! We attribute this to our customers' good taste and desire for healthy living (not to mention our low introductory prices)!

The three Turmeric Blends are still on sale, and will remain so until the end of the month. If you haven't done so yet, try them today. For those close to our Tea Room in Tarrytown, they're available there too.

Old Friends & New At a Tea Meeting

Yesterday, I was privileged to speak at the Annual Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association in Bel Air, MD.  It was hosted this year by Tea by Two, a charming Tea Room owned by two friends, Janet & Erin. After a career in the insurance industry, they decided to make a significant change in their life trajectory and entered the wonderful world of Tea. Their care and attention to detail is evident and their enthusiasm and warmth obvious.  The Tea Room carries plenty of loose leaf tea and all manner of teaware exhibited on charming, old-fashioned stands and furniture.

The morning started with registration accompanied by Tea and a light Breakfast, with a generous Swag Bag of tea goodies available to each attendant.  Their beautiful tea cups and arrangements added to the overall atmosphere.

Apart from its common use in food, it is widely used in India as a poultice to reduce inflammation.  It's also used with honey as a face mask. And now we blend it into Tea!

What is Turmeric?  It is a perennial herbaceous plant from the ginger family. It's native to southern Asia and usually used in its dried powder form. Its chief use is in cooking and secondarily used as a dye.  Its root contains a yellow-colored chemical called curcumin.  Although its benefits have been known in Asia for centuries, recently it has taken on new acclaim in the West as a disease-preventing agent with over 6,000 articles and studies referencing its...
