What an exhilarating year this has been! As I stop to reflect back at all of the special moments of 2012, I feel that I have so much gratitude for all of the incredible things that have happened this year. There have really been some great moments!!
First and foremost, right at the top of 2012, Talbott Teas gained a new parent- Jamba Juice! We are so happy to be a new member of their family! Our work together has meant that I have had some really fun opportunities, like having iced tea with Venus Williams on the tennis court in Miami and in the Hamptons. Venus is an ambassador for Jamba Juice and it allowed us the opportunity to meet and get to know each other. So much fun!
Our relationship with Jamba came about early this year with our appearance on Shark Tank. Wow, what a blast that was! Both nerve wracking and exciting, it was a life changing moment for Talbott Teas. We had the chance to work with “Mr. Wonderful” and Daymond John (Daymon, you are one cool cat). So exciting, and an incredible learning experience. After appearing on the show we received so much positive feedback and met lots fantastic new customers placing first time orders.
The next order of business was to roll out Talbott Teas to Jamba Juice locations across the country. What a dream come true. Jamba Juice shoppers now have the chance to grab a cup of some seriously stylin’ tea! I am still pinching myself when I walk in to a store and see my name up on that shelf!
As if that is not enough, Talbott Teas also made it in to Costco in the Midwest region. What is bigger than Costco?! It’s the chance for you to grab a really great deal on Talbott Teas, so hurry before they are gone!
We continue to work diligently to expand our reach to all of you tea lovers out there. We want to make sure you can get your Talbott Teas as easily as possible. Keep your eyes open to find Talbott Teas in a store near you in the year ahead.
A few final thoughts…
…count your blessings and tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
…anything worth doing is worth doing in style, and that includes enjoying your daily cup of tea!
Happy holidays to you and your loved ones!
