Many things have been happening the last few months! Many of which I still have to announce here on my blog! So...today...I want to check two of those announcements off of my check list! First up...The Takeover of 52 Teas and the Kickstarter Campaign! No-No...I'm NOT the person taking over 52 Teas but my very good friend and Sororitea Sister Anne is!!! For those of you who are friends of ours in the tea world and those of you who have been a reader of this site for a while you may remember I am a bit of a TEA FREAK! Anne and I co-created/founded Sororitea Sisters - an online tea review site and it's been going strong for about 5 years now!
Anne is in the process of taking over 52 Teas from Frank the previous owner and creator of the brand. Therefore, she alongside with her beautiful daughter, they are 'all in' on raising funds to make this happen! Their GOAL is to keep the 52 Teas brand alive! What makes this brand so special? The 52 Teas customer base has kind of a cult following...it's based on a NEW unique and creative flavor of tea every week of the year! And when I say UNIQUE I mean it! Above you can see some of their best sellers! But what makes THIS tea company even MORE special is that it's VEGAN and Organic! So when you see the "cheesecake" flavors and the novelTEAs like the ones with Marshmellows in them...they are ALL made with VEGAN ingredients! Woot!
That is why I am so excited about this Kickstarter Campaign. Of course I am partial because ANNE and her daughter are behind it - but - they are keeping and moving forward with everything being VEGAN and organic! I've never posted a Kickstarter Campaign announcement on my blog before. But I totally believe in this one! I have never contributed to a campaign either - but - I will be backing this one! I haven't decided which level to do - I'm thinking the $65 level but am very tempted by the $110 level, too! Not only to help out but because of the incentives! They are offering their teas, of course, but they also have some awesome logo-ed canvas bags and tea tumbles among other cool ways to be involved!
EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS...so if you are reading this and a buddy of mine and you can even do the $5 pledge that would help out immensely! They are collecting funds until the end of THIS MONTH. At the time of this post they were a little over $2,500 raised and their goal is $10,000...with your help they can keep the 52 Teas dream alive!
If you have had any of the 52 Teas before - let me know what your favorites are in comments! Thanks so much, everyone!
