Why Tea-Fasting Can Be Good For Business

In case your wondering if tea fasting can be good for business?  Absolutely, but only in the case where the tea faster is so incredibly obsessed with tea that not a moment passes when he/she can wait for their tea-fast to be over.  Of course I am referring to an anonymous person. Tea-He! 🙂

Here are a few reasons why.  The desire to want, drink, and shop for tea will only grow exponentially.  If I used myself as an example I’d say with all the teas I already have in my personal stash plus those I blend for @iHeartTeas it wouldn’t make much sense to purchase new tea.  I even recently went through a cleansing process as I was in possession of so many teas that had either gone past their prime or not exactly a favorite.  Yet, I kept them for no real purpose other than to have “just in case.”  I can’t even tell you just many I threw away after the purge.  I don’t think you would believe me, even if I told you.  Let me also mention that even after the purge I still have A LOT of tea in my possession.  What’s left are the cream of the crop, all good teas, stored well and ready for consumption post tea-fast.

Now to the point, why can a “tea-fast” be good for business?  Simply being without tea for now going on five days has reverted me back to my more novice tea drinking days.  Those days where I wanted to try everything I could get my hands on.  I did frequent tea swaps, made purchases, got involved in “traveling tea boxes,” you name it I did it all for the love of tea.  I was bright-eyed and bushy tailed emercing myself into the world of loose leaf tea.  Finding others just like me and enjoying this new found love were just a few of the things I love most about my passion.  Many years later and five days into this fast I feel young again.  A rebirth of my passion for tea.  It is a wonderfully euphoric experience getting back to my younger exuberant feelings of curiosity and desire to indulge in all things tea.  It’s so refreshing but tough on the wallet (hubby’s wallet.)

I had mentioned at the beginning of my tea-fast that I would start a list of those teas I would want to purchase when I finished my week long abstanance.  I have gone much further than that and that is why tea-fasting can be good for business, even my business.

See below for evidence of just that…

By the way, I am not done yet either. 😉 Don’t tell hubby! Plus don’t think I won’t be indulging in my favorite iHeartTeas blends. 

Updated: I didn’t want to sound self-promotional so I did leave out which teas I was most excited about drinking from my own personal blends and how business has been since my fast.  However, since I was asked to embellish on this very things I shall provide you with just  that.

How the tea-fast has effected business for iHeartTeas

I really thought business would take a virtual hit this week. Instead I think my iHeartTeas supporters have come out in force supporting my quest with kind words of encourage and purchases on both my sites iHeartTeas and iHeartTeas on Etsy. Goes to show being tea free can even boost the bottom-line. I have the best customers. 🙂

  1. Ok Rachel, time for some tough love.
    The post sounds like you’re on speed. Spelling mistakes, missing words. It’s like you typed it with one thumb whilst cradling and fondling a lap-full of tea tins.
    And is it good for business? – yes, everyone else’s!

  2. Tea Moment says:

    I concur! This is excellent for everyone else’s business (I clicked on a few of those orders that piqued my interest!) But what was missing from this list was the list of your own iHeartTeas blends. I’m sure your favorites change as often as mine do, but enquiring minds want to know what are you obsessing about from your own creations! (And – good for YOUR business!)

    Your re-ignited passion for tea is throwing fuel on my own fire. I love it!

  3. Wow, that’s a lot of tea! I’m jealous.

  4. iheartteas says:

    Thanks @Ricardo Caicedo I do love a good cup of tea. 🙂

  5. iheartteas says:

    Firstly I fixed the errors or so I hope @thedevotea and updated it with new information. Goes to show mental faculties can be effected due to lack of tea. As for business I wrote an update about that too. For you and @Tea Moment

  6. Rachel, I’m sure you would have typed “affected” there if you’d had some tea.

  7. iheartteas says:

    Dang it, I need tea @thedevotea clearly by the end of this fast I will be nonfunctional.

  8. Tea Moment says:

    Yay! Now I can obsess about Your favorite in-house and in-heart blends! 🙂

  9. Jackie says:

    Business must be going well indeed, for you to place orders such as these 😛
    Lots of nice choices, but I couldn’t bring myself to pay $30 for 2 oz of tea. I just couldn’t. If I like a tea I drink it by the potful. I’d hate to like this tea that much, – I’d be in ruins. Best I don’t even discover how good it is.
    Anyway, some mighty fine selections there Rachel. Spare me a cuppa.

  10. Xavier says:

    So you are just like a phoenix, rising from your fasting with a new interest for tea?
    I am not sure how it is good for business but for you, I understand.
