It’s been a busy month here at Twist HQ, as our first Christmas approaches. Our range of Christmas products has gone down a storm, while our core range continues to get more and more fans as word gets out.
We donated loads of tea to the cafe, which was selling a truly impressive range of homemade cakes, that’s for sure. We will confess to going a little overboard on the cakes ourselves – so it was lucky that the Twist stall was right next to the lovely Louise Condon from Jump ‘n’ Juice. She’s a personal trainer with a great online fitness/health/wellness regime that is great value at only a fiver a month and seems to get great results. We’re going to be subscribing to work off the Christmas excesses!
It was lovely to meet so many customers at the fair, many we knew by name having seen their orders online but we’d not met. Hearing which teas they liked and why, was super – certainly makes it all worthwhile when a customer says our tea is the best they have ever tasted. And we met loads of new customers who were not familiar with us, but after a sniff of our lovely blends and a few tasters, they’ve joined the ranks of Twist fans.
It was interesting that around half of those who bought teas were doing so for themselves, half were buying gifts for friends and family – the Selection Boxes were incredibly popular in this regard. We’ve got another fair coming up next week, the Harpenden Collective Christmas Pop Up, so here’s hoping to meeting more potential Twist fans there!
The highlight of the day? Without a doubt, a message on Facebook from one of the elves manning (elving?) the queue to Santa’s grotto:
“Santa enjoyed two cups of Twist Teas today and they kept his spirits up out in the chilly grotto! … I think it’s now on his Christmas list (if anyone remembers to get Santa a pressie!)”
An A-list celebrity endorsement if ever there was one. Merry Twistmas!
