Hello all you wonderful readers! I am excited to tell you I’ve finally embarked on a new Rory, Tea & Me dream; I’m blending my own teas!
I’ve been interested in blending my own teas since I began blogging three years ago, but only within the past month have I taken steps to make this a reality.
I’ve set up a Rory, Tea & Me Facebook page where I’m currently asking volunteers to test new blends.
I rely on my taste testers feedback in order to learn if I have blended flavors correctly, if a flavor needs to be boosted, or if the blend is terrible and I shouldn’t go that route.
In some cases, my taste testers have helped me create an additional flavor with a little bit of ingredient tweaking.
Unfortunately, once I begin selling my teas I can only sell in the state of Maryland, USA under the MD Cottage Food laws. But it’s a good starting point for a new and hopefully growing business.
So cheers to the next steps! My first vendor experience will be on October 22, 2022 in Southern Maryland. Here’s to a new Rory, Tea & Me experience.
