Giving back to the land and the people through tea cultivation
Teatulia’s Linda Appel Lipsius will be presenting this fascinating lecture at
the 2009 World Tea Expo in Las Vegas on
Saturday, May 2 11am-12pm
Learn about revolutionary farming and social practices being implemented in gardens around the world. As we become more aware of where our teas come from and how they are produced, it is becoming increasingly possible to hold producers accountable for sustainable farming and just social practices.

After a great time at the Natural Products Expo West in CA, we knew we didn’t want to miss out on another great opportunity. This time, come visit Teatulia at booth # NOL2340 in the Organics section. We’ll be talking about and sampling our fresh organic tea, as well as talking about our amazing natural farming methods and social responsibility programs taking place at the Teatulia tea garden in Northern Bangladesh.
Natural Products expo is a great place to meet organic growers from all over the world. It’s also where we’ve meet friends such as 34 Degrees, Foodzie, and Contact Keeper.
If you happen to be going, please stop by and say hello to me (Brianne) and Inam!
Natural Products Expo East
Where: Boston Convention Center
When: October 16th – October 18th
I’ve been doing my daily blog reading, trying to catch up on the post World Tea Expo news and reviews, and I’ve noticed quite the trend – World Tea Expo is a “hot spot” for tea samples. One blog in particular, VeeTea even has a lovely photo of all the samples she received. (Mind you she was brewing a cup of our Neem Nectar as we were chatting about Tetulia samples). Another blog talked about collecting his samples and having his son schlepping them around (hey kid, everyone has to pay their way somehow). Of course, Tetulia was one of the many exhibitors handing out samples as well.
Along with reading the tea blogs, I was also reading some general marketing blogs and one in particular really made an excellent point. Big Slice of Awesome pointed out that you can’t just shove samples down your could be customers throats. ( I encourage you to read this blog post…).
From putting the fact that tea lovers love tea samples together with the fact that NOBODY likes to have samples imposed upon them, Tetulia is leaving it up to you. If you want samples of our tea, just say so! We’d be happy to send you some.
All you need to do is email us and give us your address (to be used for teas samples only, no junk).
One of the great things about the World Tea Expo is meeting all kinds of new people that share a love of great tea. This year, it was our great pleasure to meet the folks of Arbor Teas. It might seem a bit odd that we’re fawning over a could be competitor, but Arbor Teas tickled our fancy from day one.
As we initially started to design our packaging, one of the most important things was that it reflect our core values – providing a great organic, premium tea while sustaining our land and people. This is when we ran across Arbor Teas of Ann Arbor Michigan. This husband and wife team have developed a solid foundation for a fun business that provides some of the finest organic and fair trade teas, but it doesn’t stop there. To further their belief in making a smaller “footprint” whenever possible, they developed an earth friendly package for their teas.
In the coming days (yes, just days) Tetulia will share with you our brand new packaging. You will see a completely compostable outer container, a recyclable inner freshness protector, and a biodegradable pyramid tea bag. While we were on this track all along, it was Arbor Teas that truly inspired us to go forward with it. Next time you’re shopping for teas, take a moment to consider what you are really buying and what happens to it when you get down to your last bit of tea.
Thank you Arbor Teas!
As you know, we just returned from the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas. This trade show is ALL about tea! Bulk tea, packaged tea, tea cups, cars that look like a tea pot, everything tea! However, there is one gem I’d like to share with you that made this trade show so successful – and it has nothing to do with tea. Ladies and Gentlemen I introduce you to The Contact Keeper!
This little black book made storing business cards and follow-up notes an easy and organized must. Not only does it hold a ton of information, but it also lets you prioritize the importance of the contact, maintain a schedule of meetings, write additional notes in the back, and even store more information in an envelope in the back.
Gone are the days of coming back from a trade show with random business cards and no idea of what information you were supposed to send out. For anybody that exhibits or even attends trade shows, I urge you to get your own contact keeper. Your trade show experience will never be the same!
