As Seen On

Our tea blends have been featured around the web. 


Every tea comes with “Tea Lovers Bookplate” stickers (3×2″) for your private library. Illustrated by Julia Glushchuk


Where Does The Money Go?

Beginning with our organic teas, we pay for the very best. All teas* and their blending ingredients are sourced from organic farms with certifications by Earth Kosher and the USDA National Organic Program. This includes expert blending by professional tea specialists in the United States. 

*Pippi Oolongstocking contains some natural flavoring and is not an “organic” tea blend.



Then there is the hardware 🙂 We are buying heavy thick recycled paper cartons with high quality full color printing. Inside each carton you also receive a bookmark and a food-grade, resealable tea storage pouch with a color sticker.

Finally, shipping is included!

The Tea-m

We’re three friends in Berkeley, California with a love for tea and books. Johnny and Mitch are the masters of tea, book and pun and Jorgen is the award-winning artistic director. Since our first Kickstarter in 2015 we’ve wanted to release our literary tea blends in paperback format.

Risks & Challenges

The Cartons and Tea Blends do not pose serious challenges in budget or manufacturing technology. We have already identified, quoted, prototyped and demonstrated our design. Your support gives us the funding we need to place the orders.



Special Thanks

First and foremost, we want to thank the hundreds of lovely backers who carried this idea from silly to really. The support we’ve received from our fans on Kickstarter is the reason we are able to spend the time and care on NovelTeas. Also, to the bloggers who have written about our work and shared our NovelTeas on social media — your sharing is caring and carrying NovelTeas to higher and higher shelves worldwide. Finally, thank you to all friends and family who have supported our work since Day 1 and have endured crazy amounts of tea, cartons and tins in your living rooms.



Will you offer international shipping?

One of the main reasons we’re running this campaign is to make our blends available to the international market, but first we must produce the product. If our campaign is successful, the paperback tea blends of the British Collection will be available for international orders from our website. Help us succeed by sharing the campaign! Every share is hugely helpful.

Will you offer the original collection of tea blends in this format?

Eventually we will get to that as well. Keep your eye out for our third Kickstarter. 😀

Which of your tea blends are organic?

All our tea blends are certified organic and kosher, except for Pippi Oolongstocking. 


Ways You Can Help

Your post to a few friends can go a LONG way for us and help us turn important pages. 

  • Post us on your Facebook Wall
  • Share us on Instagram
  • Tweet your favorite tea blend
  • Laugh out loud, and then explain yourself
  • Send your family and friends an email with a link to your project

Thank you!
