Drink a Cup of Obama or McCain Tea

"Drink for Change" Blend or "Extra-Mavericky" Blend

OK, you crazy TeaPeeps… Since we posted our little poll from Twitter last week on the TeaLove Blog, people have been wondering when the Obama Blend and the McCain Blend will be available.

We issued a Press Release on October 14th letting people know that for a Limited Time beginning Oct 16 thru Nov 4, you can pre-order an Obama Blend or McCain Tea Blend. The teas will ship during the week of the Inauguration in January 2009.

On November 5th, we’ll post the votes for which tea sold more. Anyone care to make a prediction?

“Extra-Mavericky” (McCain Blend):
My friends, this robust Black Tea is bold, assertive, has a hint of smoke and is highly caffeinated. A great kick start to the day or a power boost in the afternoon. It’s fundamental difference is that it stands up to cream, sugar (and the Senate). You’ll either like it or you won’t.

Sip while reading the NY Times, Wall Street Journal or following the Stock Market.

“Drink for Change” (Obama Blend):
Let me be absolutely clear, this African “Red Bush” Rooibos based tea is a mix of herbs with hints of fruit. It’s smooth, fresh and lacks bitterness. Environmentally friendly, unexpected, and a little left of center. Contributes to your overall well being and Health(care).

Sip after reading the NY Times, Wall Street Journal or following the Stock Market.

Buy Tea Now! Retail: $15.50/USD each
(Yields approximately 30-35 cups of tea)
*10% of the profits from each blend will be donated to the Washington Humane Society.

Happy (Political) Sipping!

The Bailout and Tea?

Im not really a political person but recent events have me wondering…. Was tea served during the weekend pow-wow to figure out how to bailout our current financial situation? (Because Im “tea-centric” I think like this and tend to bring things back to how it relates to tea.) I think a pot of Sencha to create a zen-like atmosphere as they contemplated a decision that could send the country into a major recession if not a depression might have helped. (Not really but I can dream.)

Im thinking… probably not. Im thinking… barrels of coffee were wheeled in (along with Red Bull, Gin and carry-out from Old Ebbitt Grill). Maybe… an old box of Lipton made it into the room, who knows.

Im wondering… could tea make a difference in the world? Affect our decision-making abilities by making us more relaxed, centered and just plain happy? I want to yell out: “YES!” because Im a Pollyanna Tea Girl…. watching her 401k shrink by the minute…

Anyway…. Im sipping and reading…
