Tea Time / 2017 recap
2016 is drawing to an end and 2017 is nearly upon us. Here at A Quarter to Tea, we're undergoing a small handful of changes for the new year, which will we hope will make 2017 better for everyone.
Beginning March 1, 2017 we will begin offering teas in seasonal collections. There will be five (5) new or favorite teas that will stick around only for the season. I feel this allows us to continue offering more flavors throughout the year as well as maintaining a foundation of current favorites (Chocolate Cherry Latte, Eggnog Poundcake, Banana Nut Pancakes, Ice Brandy, etc).
The Spring Collection will be offered from March - June. At that time the following teas will become part of 2017's seasonal selections only, so please stock up before that date if desired.
Lemon Ginger Blueberry Sencha (Spring Collection)
Frosted Carrot Cake (Spring Collection)
Cranberry Calm Rooibos (Fall Collection)
Ginger Pear Spice Cake (Fall Collection)
Caramel Baked Apple Oolong (Fall Collection)
Honey Gingerbread Pancakes (Winter Collection)
Snowflake Rooibos (Winter Collection)
Limited Teas that will be reappearing for these collections are:
Maple Pecan Oolong (Fall Collection)
Cranberry Orange Spice (Winter Collection)
Seasonal Teas will be offered in the standard 1, 2, and 4oz quantities we have been offering.
New Subscription Box Options
To coincide with the release of seasonal collections, we will also be offering a seasonal subscription box. It will include 1oz each of the five seasonal teas, little extras, recipe cards, special discounts and more.
This box will ship the first week of March, June, September and December.
Pricing will be $27 (US) or $32.85 (Canada) for a recurring subscription.
Canadian Subscription Options
We now offer all subscription services to Canada. Please view the page for pricing.
Due to either a lack of interest or supplier issues, the following teas will be phased out this year:
Chipotle Chocolate Pudding (Black Tea)
Summer Berry Sangria (White Tea)
Apricot Tart (Jade Oolong)
Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti (White Tea)
Red Velvet (Rooibos)
Peach Melba (White Tea)
Santa's Dirty Secret (Black Tea)
As always, please feel free to reach out and contact us here, by email, or on social media with any questions, comments, or concerns you have.
At A Quarter to Tea, our goal has been and continues to be making uniquely flavored premium tea. Which is why in order to continue as a company, create new blends, and source high quality base teas, as well as maintain our current selections, our pricing needs to move with and better reflect the market, as well as resource and material costs.
What this means for you, is that our pricing with be restructured to be better distributed across our teas and more accurately reflect industry standards. While prices on some teas will experience an increase, you will also find reduced prices among others.
We are committed to providing value to our customers in meaningful ways, including high quality base teas, allergy friendly variations and ingredients, special promotions, new additional shipping options, and always competitive pricing. We believe that our approach to value properly balances the experience we provide customers with our need to effectively run our business.
The price changes became effective December 24, 2016 as we wanted everyone to have a consistent holiday purchasing experience. Limited tea prices and subscription services will remain the same.
We have amazing new things planned for 2017 and look forward to continuing to grow, learn, and experience some amazing tea with you all.
Please contact us with any concerns about these changes you might have and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Thank you so much for your continued support,
Lauren & Kyle
