I've received a few emails requesting info on how signature blends are selected for the 'featured section'. There's a few criteria we use to determine who get highlighted and although they are fairly basic, I'll outline them here:
1) We blend the tea and determine if it tastes good. We realize this is fairly subjective, but we don't want to necessary promote blends that are horrible mixes of white, green and herbal (you know who you are).
2) The artwork needs to be the correct size (700x300 or 700x437) and additionally needs to be aesthetically pleasing.
3) The blend description and/or story needs an interesting. Let us know what inspired the tea. Tell us when you like to drink it. Etc...
4) Adding a video review makes your submission stand out and adds a nice personal touch.
Additionally, you can read a TeaMuse article about signature blends
Lastly, you can always ask Inguna (jazz88), who is constantly creating new and interesting blends that are constantly being featured what her secret is.
