Official Tea?

A few weeks back, with mics open, I discussed KDHX’s lack of ready-to-brew tea bags while broadcasting “Silver Tray.” As a non-coffee drinker, my ability to kick in a bit of green caffeine for two hours is directly proportionate to the quality of my rock show. Lo! A few weeks later, a large box arrived at the station, with a fine assortment of six different tea blends. The note below also arrived electronically, just prior to the shipment. Though unable to mention a brand name on the air, due to public radio rules, there’s no restriction on my singing praises about the Republic of Tea in this space, nor is there any limit on my pitching the Republic’s awesome opportunity to become the Official Tea of!:

Dear Thomas Crone-

News travels fast…

We would love to send you all types of our premium green teas for your sipping enjoyment.
