1. I remember reading on one of the posts in this section that someone wanted to buy the indivigual ingredients you use in your teas... As you said, that would be pretty impossible in a practicle sense..
But I had an idea tonight: What if you offered custom tea blends? They would obviously be more expensive, but im sure people would pay to have their own blends made. And if you come across a blend that someone is requesting that is particularly good, you could add it to your site!
I know that it would be harder for you guys, but i was just thinking that it would be a good option for those willing to pay for it.
2. I've noticed nowadays that you can get most anything personalized. From m-n-ms that have your name on them, to official US stamps with your picture.... I was thinking that it would be neat to have personalized tea too! You could print messages on tea tins, etc, for people to give as gifts etc. It would also be neat for wedding favors and things. Wouldn't it be cool to go to a party, and get a basket with the hosts personal blend of tea (see above) and your name right on the tin!?!? Now THAT would be cool.
Anyways, just thoughts lol.
