I come from a family of passionate tea drinkers. My mother and sister like their tea sweet and milky. They start their day with a steaming cup, and go through another 2 or 3 throughout the day. My mother in law also loves tea, but she prefers hers to be fruity and fragrant, and would never dream of polluting it with milk. She likes to end her day with a steaming mug of tea, the warmth of the mug helps her relax at bedtime.
Tea lovers are as unique as the multitude of teas they can choose from, and today’s giveaway is to introduce you to Tealightful, a company that handcrafts beautiful and delicious teas in exciting and diverse flavors. Tealightful was started by Charlene Phillips, a mom living in Rochester, NY. I met Charlene at a conference last year, when she offered me a cup of tea for breakfast. Like a magician, she pulled a tea kettle out of her purse along with bags and bags of gorgeous, fragrant teas.
I chose the Sweet Pear Rooibos that I crafted a pot de creme recipe from earlier this week, but choosing was really tough. I kept plunging my nose into bag after bag, marveling at how pretty each tea was, and how amazing each smelled. These were no dried out tea bags. Each blend transported me to far away lands: Provence, China, and even Mexico.
Tealightful is worth talking about, not only because of its truly special teas, but also because it is a direct selling business with an unusually low entry cost. Through the end of December, you could start your own in-home tea tasting business through Tealightful’s Host to Launch program for only $33. People pay thousands of dollars to learn about how to start a tea business, then they need thousands of dollars to start their companies. Tealightful gives people the business, the products and the tools for just $33. And the tea business is hot right now. Starbucks just purchased Teavana because they see the growth potential. It’s the best time ever to have your own tea business!
