Ed: I am glad to hear that you like it here. BizSugar is a nice place! :)

Great to hear that you are a fellow tea drinker. For your information: I am writing books on tea and I want to spread the good word about the tasty beverage made from the Camellia sinensis (tea plant).

Thanks for the tips re. Pinterest business. I haven't changed my account to a business account yet.

I am pretty active on Instagram and tagging tea pictures with #teaftwbook and other related tags. I have a couple of tea related board on Pinterest.

All the Best,

"I am writing books on tea" - awesome! I've started a few books... alas, never had time to finish. Kudos to you, it's a big commitment.

Ed: Welcome to BizSugar! I read on your Twitter profile that you "drink real coffee". Do you drink real tea? ;) I will start using Pinterest for my upcoming tea hobby business. Is it possible to directly place on order on a pinned image?

Thanks, I quite like it here! ;-)

I love real tea, it's a (delicate) taste sensation! None of this freeze dried or pre-bagged drivel, we should take the time in life to enjoy the finer things. ;-)

I think Pinterest and Instagram will work well for tea, you can play around with it and have a little fun - visually.

As for selling: you would need to use "Product rich pins", theses are a bit like Google shopping in that they take you directly to the product page to purchase. Take a look >
