08/06/07 Vitaly-TEA, an herbal tea, announces new distribution shipments to Hong Kong. Formally a tough market for American tea makers to break into, Dave Philpott has found a formula that even the most discerning tea drinkers love.
Philpott's company has managed to do what many professional salespeople thought was impossible. How exactly did he manage to sell a tea product to a country that is known for drinking tea, just not American-made tea?
"The fact is that they can't easily make this type of tea so they have to import it from a supplier. Vitaly-TEA's ready made tea is a huge convenience advantage in the market," Philpott says. But for Hong Kong customers it came at a price. The cost of shipping the heavy glass bottles to Hong Kong doubled the already substantial $22 price of a single bottle. "When we finally got the idea to start putting notes into the orders telling our Hong Kong customers that we were looking for a distributor, one customer jumped at the chance to distribute it himself. It turns out that bulk shipping our product over there is much more affordable than I would have guessed. Our new distributor can lower the price to almost the same price we have here."
Vitaly-TEA is made with four North American sourced herbs from a North American Indian recipe that goes back more than 100 years. The four herbs when combined together have an almost cult like following. Many users of the tea claim many benefits, some that could be considered controversial. "There are a lot of people who seek out alternative remedies for things that affect their personal health. These four herbs, when combined in the formula we have, seem to have a near magical synergy that we are told helps many people."
