Fall is arriving…

If you're in the mood for something new at home we just got in some new white packaged teas. White Lavender, Raspberry White, and White Peony (Serendipitea Loose Boxes), Ginger Peach, Jasmine, Vanilla Coconut (Republic of Tea tea bags) and Mutan White, and White Earl Grey (Harney Sachets).

In other news our amazing customer Ruby (pictured) has opened an online store selling vintage plastics and clothing accessories from the 1920's-1950's. If you enjoy the site you can check back frequently for new items but act fast on snagging anything you like because the quantities are generally very limited, sometimes only one piece.

That's it for this blog. If you're in the mood for an upbeat song enjoy a jam from New York band Ratatat

Happy Gloomy Monday


Got some Gen Mai Cha in from Republic, both loose and in bags. That’s the green tea with toasted brown rice. 

Have a great week everyone. We’ll leave you with a cool photo set and a song.

A photographer named Natsumi Hayashi did these. It’s still self portraits of her jumping, where she looks like she is flying. She said in an interview that sometimes she jumps 100 times before she can get the right picture. That’s a good lesson for all of us impatient people, that sometimes when you want to do something really great you have to fail at it a bunch of times, and still see it through. Pretty inspiring photos.

Be well


Just an update to let everyone know that we have the full 'Be Well' series from Republic of Tea in stock. This includes non caffeinated herbal blends that are good for different needs from energy, to heart health, to skin care. We hope everyone is ready for a great weekend and we encourage you to swing by and grab some tea by the cup, or something to keep chilled in the fridge for you and your guests. 

Also check out this awesome business one of our customers opened up, it's called Fetch Club, and it's a hotel for dogs. The future is here. Another reason to love New york City. Browse their website.

Have a fantastic weekend.

Sip for the cure


Just got in some new 'Republic of Tea' teas including selections from the Sip for the cure series. Every time we sell a tin of this tea, $1 goes to support the Susan G Komen fight against breast cancer. They come in really cool flavors like pomegranate vanilla. So keep that in mind next time you're parched and want to explore some new teas.

We hope everyone is having a calm and terrific day, to assist in the calming part, here is a great song from Cut Copy.

Make some iced tea, you won’t regret it.


Spring is here, Summer is on the way, and no matter how you're spending it, it's always nice to have some iced tea around. But how do you make it? How much do you use? What do you do? Not everyone wants to sit around measuring tea all day. That's why we're currently stocking some Harney and Son's iced tea flavors including Decaf Passion Fruit. These come in convenient pre measured bags. Each box contains 6 'two quart tea bags'. This means six pitchers of tea per tin. Pick one up, you'll thank yourself. After all, no one wants to go all summer without iced tea. 

Harney Vanilla Grapefruit


White tea has become more and more popular lately and you see more and more people drinking it. One of the reasons for this is it's high anti-oxidant content. Some people like it's lighter flavor as well. A great white tea we have in stock is the Harney and Sons White Vanilla Grapefruit. It mixes vanilla aroma with tea and citrus flavor for a really unique blend. They come in silky sachets filled with loose leaf tea. The box contains 20, all of which are individually wrapped.


Absolut Wild Tea Vodka


It's a good sign for the tea industry when one of the biggest vodka's in the world mass markets a tea infused flavor.
It's become a recent trend in the liquor industry, reflecting a larger general growing trend amongst consumers.
You also see some sweet tea vodka's hitting the market.

We'd personally love to see a milky matcha liquor.
Here is a pic of Absolut vodka's wild tea flavor.
