December greetings from Modern Steep. Since our last newsletter, we hope you enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving. With the cooler weather and holiday shopping season now upon us, we’ve found ourselves quite busy filling orders at every turn. So, we’ll keep things quick and simple as we share just a few updates...
Gift Tin Line Expanded
Just in time for the holidays, our gift tins category has expanded to include new smaller, round tins filled with delicious, healthful tea. They’re just right for gifting to self or others. Of course, our larger tins are still available and make for a nice way to keep your tea safely stored and organized. Most of the smaller tins contain about 20 servings while the larger square tins yield up to 32 servings plus re-steeps.
This month’s special is a bit of a “thank you" gift in appreciation for your business. For online orders received between now and December 15th, 2018, we will send you a 10% Off Coupon Code to use for online retail purchases in January 2019. The coupon will work in addition to our bulk purchase discount and will apply to any applicable sale items as well.
(Note that we will include the coupon code with your physical order as long as the billing and shipping address are the same. Should your order be shipped to an alternate address, we’ll contact you via email with the code.)
