It's here! Truffle time! Tea and Absinthe is once again bringing exotic and delicious chocolate truffles to Steampunk World's Fair, including our famous Absinthe infused chocolate truffle.  And this year we have some new adventures to take your tastebuds on! New this year are:

Stouthearted - Infused with Guinness and featuring a malt topping for a nice foamy head

Champagne - Flavored with our favorite bubbly and just as shiny

And more! Nine flavors total and packed in a lovely little box (all of them gluten-free except Stouthearted). Every year we sell out earlier and faster (last year by Saturday night!) The best way to not miss out on your flavors is to Order Them Now!  Go to the SPWF Truffle Pre-Order page, and use the code PickMeUp at checkout (you can also add anything from our website to your order) Then you can relax and pick up your decadent chocolates at room #105 in the Radisson at the Fair. Pre-sales end Tue May 2ndat 11:59 pm.

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!
