STASH TEA: COMFORT COMES IN SMALL PACKAGES FOR HURRICANE SURVIVOR; TEA BAG COMES TO THE RESCUE

 STASH TEA: COMFORT COMES IN SMALL PACKAGES FOR HURRICANE SURVIVOR;
 TEA BAG COMES TO THE RESCUE
 PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Steve Smith, Tea Master at Stash Tea, the company receives hundreds of letters a day from customers around the country. But one letter which arrived yesterday from a hurricane victim in Florida really stood out:
 All Stash Tea friends:
 You know, on Sundays at about 1:00 p.m., my friend and I would gather in her house in South Miami after church, to talk and drink our favorite -- Earl Grey (by Stash).
 This Sunday we are searching through her belongings -- what is left of them -- what looters don't appreciate for resale value and what the rains have not yet soaked.
 She has had no food for six days and vomits constantly from the anxiety and horrors of this natural disaster.
 There is nothing left. We look and look. Finally, she sees silver and gold shining blindingly in the searing sun. It is unharmed, dry and pure.
 We find a stainless steel dog food dish, fill it with water and cook it over the fire 20 minutes.
 It's like any other Sunday. But, boy, that's not like any other Earl Grey. That's "Andrew" Earl Grey. God bless you for those foil paks -- functionally able to withstand a tornado/hurricane disaster and psychologically life-strengthening.
 -- Norma Guffey, Miami, Fla.
 "We at Stash Tea are so touched by this letter that we have sent Norma and her friend an assortment of tea including a large supply of Earl Grey. We've also sent tea mugs since one only wants to take tea from a dog dish once in their life," said Smith. In addition, Stash has sent cases of tea bags and ready-to-drink liquid teas to South Florida hurricane survivors. "Out of all the letters we have received over the years," continued Smith, "this letter was so unusual that it needed to be shared."
