OOOOOOh monidew you are after my heart! We just got a k-cup brewer (single cup teas, cocoa and coffee) that also has an insert for you to put in your own loose coffee or tea. I love herbal/fruit tea! I may have to sample some dear!
ETA I sent you an email at your store site with some questions

thank you so much for your purchase! I'm so happy that you decided to give it a try! (all I can ask, right?)

for one cup, use about 1 1/2 tsp to 1 Tbs (depending on how strong you like your tea) and make sure that it stays in contact with the water for around 5 minutes (steep time) The water should be at or nearly boiling. (These instructions apply to the fruit tea you purchased and to all black teas. Green teas should never come to a boil, only to steaming, and never remain in contact with water longer than 2 1/2 minutes.)

If you want your tea stronger - use more TEA, not more TIME. Time beyond the 5 minutes (or 2 1/2 minutes) makes the BITTER, not BETTER.

Is it better for your business to buy things off Amazon or your site? I want to try a few but I want to make sure it benefit YOU the most!

Thanks for the tip on brewing tea! I didn't know that about green tea. I'm off to have a look-see at your site now.

I will wait to the answer to this question, but I think I'll definitely have to try the Earl Grey Cream. I love Earl Grey tea; I'd say it's probably my favorite non-herbal tea. The vanilla sounds delicious!

It is better for my business if you buy them through my site. Amazon charges 20% (plus a monthly fee for the listing.) So I mark the products up 10% and split the difference with them. I still lose 10% when items are purchased through Amazon. But that's the price I pay to get my product "out there."

I was hoping that a lot of new people would find the product, try it, like it, write reviews, etc. On the back of the product is my website. Hopefully it would lead them back to my site. Then, they would buy it there because it costs 10% less. But that draw back to my site is invaluable! So, it's worth listing at Amazon for a few months to get it!

By far the best way, for me, is to buy it through my site. But please still leave your review at Amazon! Thank you so much for your interest in my little enterprise!
