I don’t know where to start. I keep wanting to send out a newsletter and it hasn’t pulled itself together yet…where are those tea-mail elves when you need them?
In short, I’ve updated the calendar/events page – changing “every other Tuesday” shop hours to 1st and 3rd Tuesday, to make it simpler to keep track of. TUESDAY HOURS 12:30-6:30 starts 11/22/11
Note: Friday after Thanksgiving “Black Friday” is BLACK (TEA) FRIDAY for us. From 2-6pm, only at our shop, all in-stock black tea is 40% off!
Then, Sunday 11/27/11, we are having an Open House with LOTS of teas to sample – you can make a side by side comparison of green teas from many regions (at least 5). You can also help us make decisions about various oolongs that we are considering for 2012. AND – 20% off all tea accessories….even those “For Life” pots and mugs you’ve been eyeing.
Lots of opportunities for Sharing Good Tea in your Good Times with family and friends in the upcoming weeks.
Thank you for bringing Traveling Tea into your homes.

I’m excited to announce that we are extending the hours every other Tuesday, starting Thanksgiving week – Just in time for last minute Holiday gift and meal needs.
We also have a few extra shop days, including an Open House Sunday after Thanksgiving, Noon-4pm.
The summer Market season is quickly coming to a close – 4 more Tower Grove Markets (including the Harvest Festival on 10/22) and 2 more Maplewood Markets.
Chandler Hill Winery is extending their season by 2 weeks (through 10/30) – I will be there this Sunday 10/16.
I’m starting to hear “Where do we get our tea after the Markets end?”
Besides web/email orders and our selected shop hours, several shops around town carry a selection of our teas (see links at the right)
Also, the Markets never really “end”….they just change locations and frequency….
Maplewood Winter Market will be Sat 11/19 and 12/17, inside the Schlafly Brewery (still outside if weather is nice).
There is also the St. Louis Community Farmers Winter Market (some of the Tower Grove vendors plus a few), held at St. John’s Episcopal Church on Arsenal, just west of Grand on the 2nd Saturday of the month – 11/12 and 12/10. Watch my calendar page as it gets closer for start/end times.
Additionally, our shop is open every Friday evening from 5-7pm. Also some Tuesdays from 11am-3pm. I’m sorting out details to add some extra hours in Nov & Dec for holiday shopping. Possibly an Open House on sun 11/27.
Follow TravTea on Twitter for last minute announcements when I’m going to be at the shop anyway (making or packaging teas).
Thank you for your continued support. I know we’re not always the most convenient place to buy tea….I try to make up for it in carrying only EXCELLENT teas that never disappoint.
Open House at the new shop location (3006 S. Jefferson, Ste 104 St. Louis, MO 63118) You are welcome to drop in any time from: 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
I learned and saw a lot at the World Tea Expo earlier in June. This is an opportunity to share it all with You.
New teas from Japan, India, and Hawaii
New tea brewing accessories
We need YOUR Help as well – Sample new teas (new flavors, and teas from the Amazon!). Help decide what new teas will be brought in over the next few months.
