Here's the Tea: Something Fun, Just For Kicks

Not the kind of custom t(ea) you're used to from us, we know.

Tea infused with quality & care—just like our t-shirts

Don't steep on this.

As the seasons change, the itch comes. 

We all have our itch. Whether it’s to get a new haircut (I’m repeating “you do not want bangs, you do not want bangs, you do not want bangs” to myself as I write this, battling the urge to do something “crazy” even though I already have a total of four failed bangs attempts on my resume), or to switch out your wardrobe, or to go on a trip…

It’s just human nature that every once in a while, we’ve got to try something new to shake things up a bit.   

Which is why, as we head into fall, we decided that we wanted to do something…weird. And silly. And cozy. And just plain ol' fun. We wanted to do something that would simultaneously feel like an extension of Summer and a segue into Fall. 

Which is how we found ourselves sourcing some warm and hopeful and bright and cheery tea from our lovely friends at Color Theory Tea Co… 

Because if you like custom tees, you may like custom teas, too. 

Here’s the tea:

Someone call Denmark—we're coming for their hygge.

If you’ve landed here, it’s likely because you received some of our tea in the mail. The SuperSoft Blend is a black tea with notes of cranberry, peach, and rose. 

Follow the instructions on the package to brew your perfect cuppa, OR check out some of these tips from the Color Theory crew:

Prefer your tea with a little kick?  

You’re in luck. Not only are we craft t-shirt makers, but we also fancy ourselves cocktail connoisseurs in our downtime. This lil number was crafted specifically with our speciality tea blend in mind. It’s best enjoyed in a coupe glass as you curl up in a cozy window-seat, wearing your softest t-shirt and with a well-loved book in hand.
