About this project

What this is about:
Hi, I'm Rubiee! Some of you may know about me, or Dryad Tea. You may have seen me singing with Pandora Celtica, you may have seen Dryad Tea on Etsy...
Back in May I did a Kickstarter to jump start a new line of teas that are based around the music, characters and world of Pandora Celtica. The Kickstarter was very successful.... and I found out that I had estimated juuuuust right.

There was nothing left over after the Kickstarter. Now this is both a good and a bad thing. The kickstarter allowed me to buy a ton of supplies that I needed to ship, package and blend... and I didn't over "charge" anyone that was backing the project. But it left me with a bit of a hiccup because I didn't think that far ahead.
My final goal? I want to be able to sell at boutiques, faires and conventions.



What I Need & What You Get

My goal isn't much, $750. I feel that this will allow me to purchase the rest of what I need to do faires and festivals and conventions, it will allow me to create retail ready branding. That's more packaging, bags, possibly a bookkeeping program that is better than my pen and paper... If I go over the goal then that gives me even more of a chance to put the extra money to swanky packagings for retail sales. 
Branding is super important to me, this project would allow me to get everything branded right, the first time. All of the jars, labels, cans, cards, table settings... all of it!

What you get? Tea! It's pretty straight forward. You back this and I send you yummy yummy loose leaf tea. 

Stretch Goal #1 is set for $1,000. - Every backer that is to receive tea will be guaranteed receive a sample size of a blend that will be Kickstarter Only until after the Kickstarter is finished in their rewards.

Stretch Goal #2 is $1,500. - Every tea sample will now make FOUR cups of tea as opposed to the original three! :)

Stretch Goal #3 is 2,000. - If we reach this? More bumper stickers! Yes sir-ee bob! In the same vein as the bumper sticker that was limited for the last Kickstarter, this will have one of its very own that I design just for it!!



The Impact
By donating to this project you help me reach my next goal. As I stated earlier, I've done a successful Kickstarter, which was awesome... but this is new territory.  Online sales are amazing, and I love them. But what I love even more? Face to face sales. I love talking to people, telling them about my product... And that means I need retail capable product!


This is where you come in!

Give a dollar, give $20, heck, give more if you want! But it's okay if you can't. I understand completely. I do ask one thing. If you can't contribute please spread the word? Word of mouth is a very strong thing! 

Remember! Kickstarter is all or nothing, if I don't hit my goal by the final day NO ONE gets charged. :)
