I was in one of our customer’s cafe last week, basking in lovely spring sun and enjoying their beautiful food during lunch time.
Chatting to the owner, Robyn, who has been happy serving leaf tea as it has pumped her tea sales beyond her expectations.
Robyn started buying from us 6 months ago, and have been very happy with her standard tea range – English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Sencha China, Peppermint and Chamomile.
She has moved on from serving Chai latte made with powder to our Chai Masala. This has attracted many Chai devotees to her cafe.
Now Robyn is ready for more. But finding it impossible to digest all the technicalities with all the different tea types.
Do you find yourself in the same boat? Wanting to stock more, but the tea types are just too confusing?
