This year, support local shops!


It's black friday and we just wanted to remind you that if you want to, you can support smaller local stores this year when you choose to shop there. Many people are already aware that supporting locally based stores is a great way to help our local economy when you make that choice.  At our store we offer a nice selection of teas, including New York based tea companies like Harney and sons, and Serendipitea, as well as other American companies like The Republic of Tea. If you were to come to our store and buy a box of tea for your spouse, boss, or friend, you're conveniently supporting two American companies in one purchase.

We hope everyone had a super duper Thanksgiving, and we would like to say that we're thankful for all of our amazing customers, and our blog readers.

Mention this blog for a off 10% discount on any of our Thirstea white bagged loose leaf teas today, saturday and sunday. (not compatible with any other offers)

Speaking of things based in New York, check out this awesome video from Brooklyn band Violens. One of our all time favorites. An interesting song and video, if you're in the mood for something new.

Day of tea cube

We just got a new product in that is really exciting. It's from The Republic of Tea and it's called the 'Day of Tea Cube'.
It's 12 different kinds of tea in one box, all individually wrapped. When you buy it you'll get two of each flavor. 
This is a great option for someone who wants to have different teas everyday, but hasn't gotten around to picking out 12 boxes of tea.

At $14.99, that's .63c per cup of tea. 
Just one more point, it's a mix of traditional teas, but there are a few decaf flavors there too.
Here is the flavor list. Enjoy.
