I have a very interesting hobby of collecting tea bags (unused, of course). I am wondering if anyone else has this hobby also. I just returned from attending the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas and loved every minute of it.

If you are a tea bag collector, you might get a kick out of my friend's website: www.chrisharne.com/condiment. No tea bags here, but Chris has painstakingly amassed, preserved, and displayed over six hundred unique specimens in his Condiment Packet Gallery.

Lisa,
Try Herman Dodge & Sons...1-800-553-8853. Call them, and they'll send you catalogs. They have two different and distinct lines. One is traditional/conservative, while the other is modern/contemporary/chic. For more everyday type teapots/cups, I recommend Chantal. I hope this helps.

Beth,
I highly recommend radio ads. Especially funny or clever ads. They are around the same cost as print media, yet in my experience are far more effective and wide reaching. It is difficult to do target marketing for tea, as our demographics are all over the board, but there are things which can be done. (Before opening my tea shop, I was a marketing consultant) I still own a small consulting firm, which helps small businesses with their advertising and marketing. Feel free to contact me at mike@annapolismojo.com.
