DIY kills Your Tea Biz

todolist-everything

This is the usual suspect to your new tea biz failure.

Yet, to most startup tea businesses, this is totally undetectable.

I was there. Green as a lushy leaf, thinking of saving myself some money.

OH YES, DIY-ITIS.

This is a killer.

Don’t believe me?

So you know how you work day and night to “make your business work”?

You want to do it yourself, like packing the tea yourself instead of getting private label tea experts to do it for you, or work out how to sell, instead of learning from sales experts.

Yes, learn the skill, save money, or just want to get it done.

Truth is, we all DIY to some degree.

Yes you, and me!

But learning a new skill is good, right?

Wrong!

Not every skill is WORTH YOUR TIME to learn.

Check out this video – I talked about how to figure out what to learn and what not to INVEST your time in learning or doing. This will not only save you time and money, but also the likely death of your business, now or further down the track!

Add Oolong Tea For Digestion In Your Tea Range

Popular Oolong tea

Your tea range needs a tea for digestion, a.k.a. digestive tea, for it is one of the top reasons people seek tea.   There are a lot of people who drink tea to help them loose weight, improve their metaoblism and relieve them from the feeling of being too full.  Oolong tea is what we recommend.

It is a very popular tea just as green tea, and black tea are.  It is good to be prepared and ready with a variety of Oolong tea.  As for taste and character, it depends on what you want in an Oolong, a Chinese one or a Taiwanese one?

Chinese oolong tends to be stronger.  The leaf colour is a good gauge on how strong it tastes, which means the black leaf Wuyi Shui Xian more black tea like.

Tie Guan Yin LightWuyi Da Hong PaoWuyi Shui Xian

Taiwanese Wulong, however, tends to be softer and floral.  If you like green tea and white tea, then Taiwanese oolong is a must buy to try.

Ever Spring OolongGin Shan CremeOrganic GABA OolongRose Oolong

Just remember, oolong is a full leaf tea.  Chopped up oolong or with lots of broken leaves are poorer grade.

Below are some of the ones we best recommend of this traditional Chinese tea type.

Just steep tea  in very hot water to help them unfurl and brew well in short periods of time.

However, unlike other teas, oolong get better during rebrewing.  Now isn’t that an even better reason why one should have a stock of this tea?

Reasons Why Tea with Chocolate Will Boost Your Sales

Chocolate Sells

Determining what goes into your tea range or tea collection takes you to decide what you want to offer as a brand.

We understand since we have been selling tea for more than 10 years to retailers and wholesalers thru Teas.com.au.  We highly recommend to feature this tea in your list of what tea to sell because it can boost your sales.

Here are the reasons how Chocolate tea can get you more sales.

1. Simple to understand.

Chocolate tea is a combo of loose leaf tea, sometimes spices, and cacao nibs.  A simple concept drawn out of the world’s love for chocolate.

Currently, there are 6 chocolate teas we offer — Chocolaty Chocolate Tea.

It will instantly get people interested and tuned in once you talk about it to your customers.

Chocolate is Easter, the Birthday Cake, the Holidays, Valentines, etc.

2. It isn’t boring.  There’s variety.

Here’s a little bit more info on the Chocolate teas that are more popular among our retail customers.

If your customers love milk tea (a common request) and they are looking for a chocolate tea taste that would stay above milk, these are the recommended teas great mixed with milk.

Choc Spice - an authentic cupp of spicy chocolate teaChoc Spice has a little spice kick.  A real party in the mouth with the ginger and wolfberries to mix with the cacao nibs when you mix it with milk.

Tahiti, newest from Teas.com.au among all chocolate teas mentioned, is a drinkable version of Australia’s favorite pastry, the Lamington. It has coconut that mixes so well with cacao nibs that give off such a beautiful smell.

Cocoa Haven would be an obvious choice, as it has the most chocolaty taste.  So if you want something to transition from chocolate milk itself to chocolate milk tea, then go for this tea.

Then Daydream, another spiced chocolate tea but what’s different is it has anise. This reminds me of a chocolate version of old fashioned Dutch anijsmelk.

3. The healthier chocolate.

Health reasons is among the biggest reasons why we sell tea.  Tea is just so wonderful in giving health benefits making it more enjoyable to drink.

With chocolate tea, it is no doubt a healthier choice as you get the infusion of cacao nibs in the tea instead of consuming cocoa powder mixed in drinks that have relatively higher fat content and sometimes very unhealthy amounts of sugar.
