Tea Specifics

How many cups do your tins of tea make?

The tins make approximately 15-20 cups of tea.

How long does tea last?

If properly stored in an airtight container, tea will last up to two years. But let’s be honest, with tea this good, you probably won’t have to worry about it.

How did you get into tea?

I was speaking and blogging about finding joy during stressful times. During those presentations I would often give practical de-stressing tips. Tea was always one of those tips as I have personally benefited from the calming and clairty of tea. So it was a natural progression.

Where do you sell locally?

We set up at the Wildwood MO Farmers Market during the summer and various craft fairs the rest of the year. We are in a couple of boutiques and gift shops.

We also offer tea tasting parties to the St. Louis Metro. At these parties the hostess earns tea based on sales. They are a lot of fun. Inquire via contact page.

Is Blooming with Joy yours or do you work for a company?

My family and I founded Blooming with Joy tea in June 2015. We work really hard to keep it going and enjoy serving our customers and clients.

Can I sell Blooming With Joy Tea?

Right now, we don’t have the ability to offer direct marketing. We do offer wholesale prices to gift shops and organizations.
