What happens when a wizard, satyr, human, and a gnome sit down for a cup of tea? Depends on how they roll their charisma I’d say. Or maybe their perception depending on the place they are drinking the tea. If you love a bit of role play with your cuppa you’ve come to the right tea shop.

What are your thoughts on transparency in the tea industry?
- Transparency is very important. We create our own blends and know exactly where all our ingredients come from. We are not, nor have we ever, ordering preblended teas wholesale which are carried by hundreds of other shops. Our blends are unique to us. It’s especially important when offering organic/non -gmo and fair trade to know how the sourcing process works and who your suppliers are.
What role does tea play in our lives?
- Tea does so many things for so many people. We’ve learned during the pandemic it is a source of comfort and relaxation in unknown times.

TeaTiff Picks: Elevenses. A foolish but brave little hobbit once asked, “What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn’t he?” What would a hobbit have for elevenses anyway? One could probably assume a brisk sort of brew such as this or one mixed with a few dried black currants and then some thumbprints alongside.
