As I have mentioned before, my sons own a tea shop located in Cameron Village, Raleigh, NC. Even is such a bad economy, their growth has been outstanding for a small business. Dr. Oz has contributed to that growth. He is a big advocate of herbal teas and he mentions a new one several times per week on his daily shows. My sons say that they and their employees chuckle when the doors open and customers are calling or asking if they carry such and such tea..they know that Dr. Oz has probably mentioned it in his program. Many of these teas come from a wide variety of sources so a shop keeper has to be very careful that the teas are from a reputable source. Most of the teas they stock in pure form or they may be blended with another tea for additional support. In addition to stocking over 250 loose leaf teas from pure tea leaves to blended products, Tin Roof Teas added an herbal section which seems to appeal to a variety of customers from many nationalities. They have seen an increased demand for specific herbs.
To learn more about teas and their benefit, "Like" them on Facebook or sign up for their monthly newsletter www.TinRoofTeas.com. Of course, if you live in the Raleigh area, you can register for classes the 2nd and 3rd Saturday of the month. They will also do sessions for clubs, businesses, and other social events (minimum 25).
