I’ve recently pulled the plug on my coffee pot and fired up the tea kettle. It seems I’ve developed a passion for tea! Previously, my mornings started with the aroma of freshly brewed, rich roasted coffee.
Now, a milder aroma fills the room as I opt for a green tea, pomegranate spice and many others. I thought I knew all there ways to know about tea until coming across a new company called Petal Tea.
Petal Tea Company specializes in Flowering Tea. Tea that not only tastes light and fresh but looks like
art in a tea pot, almost too beautiful to drink.
Business owner, Althea started Petal Tea after returning home from living abroad, she wanted to find
a way to be with her three children and earn an income. After a little thought, Althea did exactly what
the experts recommend, she started a company inspired by her passion…flowering tea. Flowering Tea, Artisans Tea or Display Tea is not widely known in the United States. Many have never seen the non-descript tea pod turn into a gorgeous flowering tea creation as it steeps and a glass tea pot. Althea found her niche market within the tea industry.
In addition to the beauty of flowering tea, there is no disputing the health benefits. Green tea is filled with antioxidants and has even been praised for restoring a youthful appearance; Add to these benefits the sheer beauty of the flowering tea and there’s a combination for success.
Working from her home office Althea set up an online store that allows her to take payments and fulfill orders. While being an online merchant was new to her, she found an immense amount of “how to” information online. This made the process a lot easier and even took away some of the start-up fear that everyone goes through when launching out on their own.
There are so many great things about Petal Tea Company and Althea. First of all the tea is absolutely wonderful! For it was love at first sight and first taste.
Second, Althea is living proof, once again that you can find your “spark” in business by looking to your passion. Do what you love. If you don’t know what that is then take a few days to pay attention to what gives you that spark. Do you get a spark when you see a nicely decorated room? Do you get the spark with you help a child with their homework or solving computer problems? Chances are if you follow your spark, as Althea did, it will lead you to a great business where you not only offer a product or service to your customers, you also create a life that you love. Thanks to Althea, I’m an instant fan of Petal Tea.
