    Suggestion for the tea people: I just discovered Tazo’s Vanilla & Apricot White Tea and it is smells (and tastes) divine. I don’t drink it alone; I fill a pitcher with cold water, add four Lipton tea bags, and one vanilla/apricot tea bag. I let sit in the refrigerator overnight. Yum, it’s not your granny’s iced tea!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I enjoyed looking at your website. Your Pu’erh tea is interesting and your descriptions of your tea are very in depth and interesting. I liked the colorful pictures streaming across the top of the page. If there is a subtitle like, Samplers, there should be something there to purchase. People may not want to go back on 1/9 or remember to go back. I did enjoy your site though and think that it gives a tea person and a non tea person good information to purchase just the right tea. Thanks for allowing me to comment. Maureen

    My suggestion is to sponsor a contest for original reader-created recipes using your teas or other products. The contest could be simply for beverages using your teas. You might also consider asking for original recipes using your products in things other than beverages : baked goods, entrees etc. I am an avid cook who creates many original recipes each month for national recipe contests. Sponsoring a recipe contest would be a great way to promote your site and your products. Prizes could be your products, a gift certificate to your store, money, or any combination of those items. Recipe contests spread the news about your web site and your products, boost sales, and create goodwill and customer loyalty. I would be glad to give you more specific ideas and suggestions on sponsoring such a contest, if you desire. I’d certainly enter a recipe contest you’d sponsor and I know many others would do the same!

    I would love to see them offer more bath teas. I use tea a lot in the bath (especially for sunburns!) but have never seen a site offer it specifically- I usually spend the evening with Lipton- LOL!

    I love your selection! However, as a socially-conscious consumer, I’d really appreciate having more information about your providers. For instance, are you fair-trade? Other than that, some emphasis on health benefits, as another reader has pointed out, would really add to the appeal of both traditional and lesser-known teas.

    I’m a big tea drinker so I found the site very interesting. I agree with the comments others have made about the samplers and emphasizing the health benefits of tea. I like the pictures of the tea bushes, but wonder if photos of cups of tea in a nice setting and showcasing the variety of teas you have might be more effective at getting people to buy. I had some problems with the length of time it took pages to load, but hopefully that is only temporary.

  29. Gina from Queen Rabbit's Realm
    January 6th, 2009 at 11:32 am

    I’d like to see some samplers. If you are new to loose tea, it can be daunting trying to select the one that you want with out tasting any. Samplers are great because they allow you try them all, and not end up with a box of something that doesn’t suit your taste buds.

    I think their site is pleasing to the eye and not full of flashy ad’s and what nots.

    As an avid tea drinker, your products look interesting. I was particularly intrigued by the unique tea selection. I would love to try the TNT sleeping beauty. I’ve never seen the prosperity cube anywhere else, nor even heard of green rooibos. I would’ve appreciated a little more information about green roibos’ flavor and the unusual packaging for the TNT teas.

    I am not sure the web design showcases your wares with the ease that an online consumer expects. For example, I appreciate the lengthy commentary about each type of tea (red, green, black, etc). However, after reading the essay, it would be better to be redirected to the essay’s subsection as opposed to the main page. If I read a whole essay about red tea, I want to look at red teas afterwards. Also the unique tea section should be under last Pu-Erh tea. As mentioned above, the sampler and gift basket pages are currently empty.

    Although the header is beautiful, it takes up a lot of space. Home page should feature more pictures of your wares, as opposed to an argument for loose teas. The text is not as attractive as tea pictures, but keep the free shipping in red.

    I would also suggest having a fuller best sellers subsection.

  42. Shelley Krush

    I think that you should also list other categories for the teas such as Dessert Teas, Breakfast Teas, etc. Sometimes I prefer to search by that type rather than the type of tea (Red, Green, etc). Also, I agree that you should include more pictures of brewed tea.

You know how you have certain wines that are good with certain foods? Maybe they could sell sets that come with treats of this type? Have “Tea Party” packages!

    I thought the website was well-designed and very easy to navigate. I appreciated the descriptions and the customer reviews. Please keep the “free shipping” service. Suggestions would include: (1)for us simple folk, describe what the health benefits actually are instead of simply alluding to them in the descriptions; (2)do away with the 3 distracting pictures under the larger photo and use buttons that tell info such as what would be a great accompaniment to that tea; if there is a best time of the day to enjoy it; health benefits; suggestions for using it for a recipe; etc.

    I admit that I’m behind the tech curve - I still use dial-up to connect to the net. I usually surf with images and flash turned off. So my advice to Redleaf is have your web guru try the site with images and flash turned off. The site is very hard to read the way it is. I’m sure just a little tweaking will make it more readable for us in the dark ages and not affect the look for the fast crowd. I love to drink tea (have a cup near right now). Thanks for the contest.

    I’d like to see a section of the website dedicated to the medicinal purposes of teas: stress, breast milk increase, stomach troubles, sore throats, etc.,

    I enjoyed looking over the website. The words at the top banner are a little hard to read, though, and it might be nice to have pictures of the actual products nearer the top of the home page. Thanks for a great giveaway! the teas look awesome!

    Great products, but the home page could be made to appeal more to the senses. Use music, copy that talks of the sights, and smells (aroma), colors, and tastes of teas in reference to the history of tea and the journey it makes from where it is grown to where it is presented by Red Tea to the public. References to tea and its contribution to the global economy, and “good health” should also be incorporated in the body of the text.

    The blooming teas are beautiful and an eye catcher. Highlight the blooming teas (small photo) on the home page. Best wishes, and thanks for the giveaway.

    They have a great selection of teas and at reasonable prices…also love free shipping on any size order…sometime companies get you on shipping when their prices are reasonable.

    OK, that checklist on the homepage just does not work. The site needs thumbnail pictures of the various kinds of tea that you click on to find out more about them. Cups holding the perfectly-coloured, perfectly flavoured brew would be one way to go.

    I enjoyed your website. I drink almost exclusively loose tea and purchase it online from several vendors. One thing you could do to improve your website it to make it easier for people to find the teas they are looking for. If someone is looking for non-flavoured black teas right now they have to go to the black tea tab and hunt through all the flavoured teas. The plain black teas (Darjeeling, ceylon) do not appear to be single estate… if they are you need to list the estate they are from. It would also be useful to post the grading of your tea, and the type of tea used in flavoured teas (most likely ceylon?). I enjoyed the fact that you posted reviews of your teas.

    Although I like to try many different flavours of tea, I try to shop at stores where I can stock up on the ‘basics’ while I am there. I do not see Yunnan, Assam or other basic black teas in your selection. It would be a good idea to add them (As well as grade, region). The same goes for green teas.

    If a tea has a name that does not describe the flavour (e.g. green harmony) you may want to put a word or two describing the flavour on the main page… otherwise your customers have to click in and out of dozens of pages to read about your teas, which can become frustrating.

    If you are carrying fewer teas so that you can rotate through them faster (sending very fresh tea to the customer) then emphasize that somewhere on your page… this will explain the fewer offerings and showcase the strength of your site.

    I like the site! I wish you the best of luck. I have bookmarked it for future reference.
