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)!

    Chai Popularity Contest Results are In!

    Results are in for the Chai contest!  We asked you to rank our many Chai blends by order of popularity. As promised, we've selected our 3 winners, and for those of you who cannot wait to find out if you were right, wait no longer! Here is the list in the correct order:

Hands down, it is the one we serve the most.  It is Black tea with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger & vanilla. How well did everyone do with the rest of the list? Here are the highlights:
