Tea blends disappearing

Do teas have a limited life in the alphabetical list? Or do your own blends just not show up?

I think the blends stay on the alpha list when they are first new and then if they sell one a month. After that, you have to find them by the person that blended them. At least, I think that is what has been said by those in the know.

Limited life. Too many blends, not enough space.

Even if they don't show on the Signature Blend menu (actually headed Custom Blend Tea), you can still execute a site search.

For example, Firefly Tea no longer appears on the list of signature teas, but you can find it by entering this into the Google search line:

firefly site:www.adagio.com

Just replace "firefly" with the name of the tea you're searching for.

Yes, the Google search works, but not the Adagio site search. Can we petition TPTB to include the signature blends in the site search?

Nice example :) Thanks! I might add, it is no longer on the list because I moved it from the Tanya Laird account to Austin Browncoats and therefore no longer had the big sell numbers on it :( Que sera!

I was thinking....Ilya...perhaps there can be a search option on the page. I have seen that a lot of people get on the IM or here and ask for a certain tea they saw once. If people could do a search it might make it easier and you wouldn't have to go looking up all the requests (of course, I have no actual idea how difficult it might be to IMPLEMENT a search....so, feel free to ignore). And if possible, because I have seen people not know exactly what they are looking for, the engine could produce approximate matches as well.

Eg. I type in Peach Pie (I dunno why I would type this in because I hate peaches, but for argument's sake I have typed it....)

the search engine returns:

Peach Pie
Peach Pie Chai
Peach and Ginger Pie
Peaches and Cream Pie
Peachy Pie
blah blah blah

Anyway, just a thought :D
