What is To A Tea?

To A Tea is a simple and elegant website that allows anyone to create a custom blend of tea, order it, and have it show up on their doorstep a few days later.

Stretch Goal: $2500

  • every backer ($2+) will receive a few grams of a mystery blend of tea 
  • every backer who pledged $9+ will receive an extra 10g of their custom tea
  • new rewards will be added that include multiple custom blends

Why do you need our money?

The main reason that we're here on Kickstarter is to raise money to improve our selection and to purchase more inventory. Tea, herbs, spices and freeze-dried fruit aren't cheap. We'd also love to have some funds to support our marketing efforts.

How much of each ingredient I select is included in my tea?

We have a specific formula that takes into account the potency of each ingredient, along with how well they pair with the base tea (s) and the other ingredients. We can always adapt this if you choose.

What if I really like a blend I make? How can I be sure it will be the same the next time I order it?

Because we use a pre-determined formula, the tea will be very similar if you select the same add-ins.

How many add-ins can I choose?

You can choose as many or as few as you want. However, the more you choose, the less of each will be in your tea.

When will we get our tea?

If the campaign is successful, all tea orders will be shipped in July, 2015.

Can I see what the base teas looks like?

Sure.

Didn't you already do a Kickstarter?

Yes! Unfortunately, due to a high goal and a lack of marketing, it was unsuccessful. However, we've lowered our goal and are ready to pursue To A Tea full-time.

Risks and challenges

Our only challenge is ensuring we can complete all orders on time!
