Really, an order?!

I was perusing our Two for Tea email box recently and came across an invitation to attend the World Tea Expo East in Boston. The subject line caught my attention because it was about selling tea online. This is something we have been trying to do with very little success for a couple years now. We have a few loyal followers, but we can't quit our day jobs.

Of course I would love to attend the expo and especially the talk on selling successfully online. If you have never attended the World Tea Expo, it is a giant trade show for people who are very serious about all things TEA. Things you only dreamed of are already available at the World Tea Expo. We attended our first show the year before we became tea entrepreneurs. It sealed the deal and we were sucked in big time! There are workshops, demonstrations, free tea, incredible swag and people, lots of them, all as enthusiastic about tea as we are.

If you are in the "tea business" or plan to be, I highly recommend checking out the expo. It is a great place to learn a lot and network with like minded people, plus did I mention the swag?

By the way, just under the expo email was a reorder from a new loyal customer. There is hope!

I've never ordered from you because I have never seen you advertised anywhere - didn't know you existed. There is a new site - which is like Wikipedia except it is only about tea. There is a section for tea stores.

An order. Cool. I'm currently trying to figure out whether I can make it to World Tea Expo next year. I'd like to go if I can. --Spirituality of Tea
