Tea & Absinthe

Decadence and Delight for the Elegantly Geeky

Geeky teas, absinthe accessories, gifts for steampunk nerds, Doctor Who sci-fi fans, and all kinks in between



It's here! It's here! It's here! The return of Crystal Gems Tea! This tea is blended exclusively for us. You can't get it anywhere else. A black tea with a delightful fruit flavor and crystallized flower petals and made of love! We'll have it available at Pennsic and Fan Expo Boston. But if you can't wait you can order some online. We've also put some new goodies up so take a look!

Welcome to Tea & Absinthe!

Here you'll find Steampunk pocket watch tea infusers, Doctor Who Tardis Teas, Bunnies, absinthe spoons and glasses, gourmet science kits, and anything else our nerdy, geeky, retro-futurist hearts desire.

We're constantly updating the Event Calendar so watch where we'll be popping up next.

You can also join us on Facebook to keep track of our shenanigans!

See you at tea time,

-Daniel and Pacita


We're going to Disney!... Well sort of... not really... But we are traveling down to Orlando, FL for Megacon! As such, any orders placed as of now will be shipped out on Mon Jun 4 2018 we return. See you at Megacon booth #770!

We are also going to be at the Lighthouse Vendor Bazaar in Frederick, MD, on May 19th!  Thanks to the fantastic folks at Key City Steampunk Festival for arranging this.  

*** The Season of Giving ***

Hello, Tea & Absinthe fans!

Well your orders are all out and on their way to you. I want to personally thank you for your patience and kind words. This has been the hardest Christmas season we've had. We're not a huge company; it's just Daniel, myself, and a few good friends who help out on occasion. When I ended up in the hospital with a stroke, it threw a wrench into the gearworks of things and we are just now getting back on track. So thank you and we love you.

There's still time to order for Christmas delivery! Just place your order by Dec 19th and it will go out Priority Mail the next day. We've just restocked Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, and Slytherin (Ravenclaw is still lost in study somewhere, but should be back not long after the Yule Ball), as well as some of our barware, and put our Limited Edition Crystal Gems on flash sale. But hurry! We might not have any till next year (if ever) and there are only 16 small tins left!

Have a happy holiday, Everyone. Be kind. Be thankful. Be giving. Be excellent to each other!


*** Life Hands You Lemons, We Make Tea ***

(November, 2017)  Well Tea & Absinthe Fans, It’s been a whirlwind.

First things first, apologies for any delays you’ve encountered ordering and receiving your tea. Pacita, ½ of Tea & Absinthe, had suffered a stroke last week and it’s been an incredibly scary time for us. If you’ve visited our booth in person, you’d know Pacita as the colorful vivacious force of nature often handling the register. Though this sudden illness has been a setback, she has been recovering beautifully no doubt carried by your many well wishes and positive vibes to which we are eternally grateful. We are also extremely grateful for your patience during this time. We hate knowing that we’ve dropped the ball in any way, realizing full well how important that familiar cup of tea can be. Rest assured you have not been forgotten! We will be dedicating our time to getting things back on track promptly. To that end, some important announcements:


Ah yes, the announcement you have all been waiting for, two of our favorite new teas (and more importantly Pacita and Jackie’s Hogwarts houses, respectively) are coming back in stock very soon. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to these new teas! I mean, we knew you’d love them but you guys REALLY LOVE THEM! 

That reminds me. THANK YOU FOR MAKING NEW YORK COMIC CON A HUGE SUCCESS! We had expanded our booth this past year and streamlined our pouring process and it seems it was just the ticket to get your orders on their way in record time. So much outpouring of love and appreciation we couldn’t have asked for a better show. New York Comic Con is always a doozy, so many people so many things going on but we couldn’t have asked for a better group of fans to spend it with. 

Last but not least, If you’ve seen us either at NYCC or Teslacon (which was also amazing), you’ll notice our brand spanking new tins! A change that is significantly better for storage, transport, and reusability! This does mean that we will be changing our prices to accommodate very soon, Thanksgiving Day to be precise.  But rest assured the price changes are minimal and we think its totally worth it. 

Well, this turned into a novel. But we’ve been gone for so long and we knew we owed you this update. Life these past few months has given us both sugar and lemons, now we make the lemonade (or maybe just a really yummy lemon tea... )

Thank you DRAGONCON!

Hello, Tea & Absinthe fans!

DragonCon was wonderful, and so are all of you!  Thank you for receiving our new Hogwarts tea collection so warmly, not to mention our other new flavors.  We hope to update the website and add the new flavors soon, within a week.  As I type, we are taking a break as we roll back north towards Potterverse in Baltimore this weekend!

By the way, we've greatly reduced our online inventory and will be shipping out orders when we return from Potterverse so please keep that in mind when ordering from our website. If there's anything you want that you don't see, shoot us an e-mail and we'll let you know when and if we'll be able to get it too you.  See you at the Con!

Tea & Absinthe:  on the road again!

We're hitting the again!  Waltham, Massachusetts, Orlando Florida, perhaps even Washington DC!  Check out our event calendar to see what Dan and 'Cita are up to.   

-Daniel & Pacita

***Thank You, Steampunk World's Fair!***

.As always, you, the Steampunk Community, has made SPWF one of our favorite events!  Thanks to everyone who stopped by and said hello!  Let's all do it again next year, but fewer flooded roads and less Presidential related traffic interference... 


Nessie Family

Look!  Nessie!  Wait, where'd she go?  Much like the "real" Nessie, our dino-ladles exist in pictures, but we can't quite find them in person.  Colander-spoon Mama Nessie, and tea-infuser Baby Nessie are still available, but the ladles are temporarily mythical... we'll send up a flare of something when the are back in stock.  

Heroes of Science glasses back in stock!

We missed Ada Lovelace day. Sorry. Our math was off... But let's celebrate anyway! Our Heroes of Science pint glasses are back in stock. Get them now while supplies last. They're the perfect gift for science nerds!

We're also working on re-stocking and adding new goodies to the website so keep checking us out.  Or see us in person at our last two shows of the year; TeslaCon in Madison, WI and Chicago Tardis in Chicago, IL. Happy browsing!


TARDIS 11 - Geronimo tea, and wonderful any time and space treat

Featured Flavor: TARDIS-11 Geronimo!

T-11 is a delicious black tea with vanilla cream custard flavor. Fish fingers not included. Goes well with TARDIS Self-Destruct Buttons (aka Jammie Dodgers)

Ingredients: black tea -Assam, -China, flavor, vanilla bits


It's the Glitch In The Matrix Sale!

Ahhhh the joys of being a small business. Sometimes glitches happen and you can't call IT (that's me) or HR (that's me too) or the CEO (yup, me again).  So at the moment, I'm SOL :) But there's a silver lining to this glitch in the Matrix. From now until the Matrix is defeated,  ALL SHIPPING IS $7. Yup, that's right.

Buying a heavy iron teapot? $7 shipping.
Buying 1 oz. of tea? $7 shipping.
Buying All the Tea and All the Things? $7 shipping. 

So take advantage of Agent Smith's dejavu
So take advantage of Agent Smith's deal and order now!
