And the Midwest Tea Festival Survey said….

Midwest Tea Festival

126 tea festival attendees completed this survey at our booth – Tea Lover Teas and Tea Lover Gift Baskets – at the Midwest Tea Festival held at the Ararat Shrine Auditorium in Kansas City, MO early September, 2017.

Attendees completed our one question survey “What would you love to receive in a tea gift?” to enter to win one of the six (6) tea sampler gift bags we gave away every hour during the festival.

The survey responses have been tallied and are ready to be revealed!

Most survey completers selected multiple items they would love to receive in a tea gift. To make most of the survey completers happy, however, give them a gift of loose leaf black tea, an infuser with a tea cup and saucer or teapot.

About 25% would love to receive organic, fair traded, tea in tea bags, a tea measuring spoon, a tea scale, tea candy and tea themed gifts like candles and picture frame.

White tea was the second favorite tea selected with green, herbal and oolong teas coming in tied for third place.

Although a gift of a tea mug came in 3rd place behind a gift of a teacup and saucer or a teapot, 38% percent of survey completers would love tea ware in a tea gift.

The number one tea tool preferred in a tea gift was an infuser – 78 responders would love an infuser in a tea gift. Mark Thompson, of Tea Lover Teas, hosted a café session showing a variety of tea infusers. We think this may have influenced preferences. A measuring tea spoon was the next popular tea tool followed by a tea thermometer then a scale on which to weigh tea.

Surprisingly, 57 survey completers would love to receive a tea cake as a gift or in a gift, the usual winner is tea cookies. 49 survey completers would love to receive a tea gift including tea cookies.
