RED! It seems to be the color of the moment, the color of love, the color for Valentines Day. As we are all caught up in "red", my sister recently visited her local Trader Joes location and discovered something very sad about her favorite "red" drink. The following letter is what she wrote to Trader Joes after returning home.
Hi, I live in Miami and my nearest store is in Pembroke Pines. It takes me 20 min of highway driving to get there, so I try to trek out a couple times a month to stock up on my favorite TJ's products. So perhaps you can imagine my disappointment this past Sunday went I got to the store, only to find that the Ruby Red Chai tea was out of stock and, worse yet, discontinued!! (Btw, the store personnel were very friendly and helpful in looking into and providing me with this information, so kudos!) My husband and I have been eating Paleo for the past four months. Ruby red chai was my "anytime" drink... It helped curb my sweet cravings, was my relaxing "cuppa" I'd nurse on the couch after a long day at work, my morning pick-me-up I'd bring *with* me to work! and my kids' favorite treat (which I felt comfortable letting them have, as it's caffeine free). Actually, the caffeine free bit is a very big deal for me, as I do not tolerate caffeine very well, it makes me shakey and jittery. Since Sunday, I have been looking for a chai alternate, but all other chai teas are generally blended with black tea, and contain caffeine. I am really, really sad that that ruby red chai has been discontinued. Please bring it back!!
Thank you for being such an awesome store! I still enjoy shopping at Trader Joe's and I hope to see my favorite tea, or other similar products, back in her shelf in the near future.
A loyal customer,
