Decadence and Delight for the Elegantly Geeky

Tea & Absinthe:  on the road again!

We're hitting the road for the month of January!  First stop is our lady love, New Orleans Comic Con. Then we hustle back north for our "home con", Arisia in Boston. Afterwards we hop across country to go vend at Edwardian Ball in San Francisco.  Whew what a trip! Please note that during this time, it's possible that some online orders will go out a few days later than usual. Come see us at a show or check our Event Calendar to see where we'll pop up nearby you.

Thank you all for your support and we wish you a very very HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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!
