A loose-leaf tea lover's foray into musically inspired blends, help bring the dream to life!

***Read Below for Updates!!! We Hit 2K, 3K AND 4k!!!!!***

It all started over a cup of tea. Literally. 

Thanks to some amazing friends and comrades I have found an interesting calling: Blending loose leaf tea based on music. Not just any music though, but the multi-layer tones of Pandora Celtica- a local Denver acappella group. With their blessing I will blend teas inspired by their music, their personalities and their world. 

The Goal and What it Takes

The goal of this project is to blend tea inspired by the Celtic Acappella music of Pandora Celtica, and get it into the hands of tea lovers everywhere. I have most of the blends written, I have test blends of some of the teas created, but in order to make this dream a reality I need your help

Blending tea is more than just throwing ingredients together, there is purpose in every cup. A feeling of the song, the words, the music, taking it all and blending it together with a dash of love and magic. 

Other than the blending, it takes packaging, labels, bags, tins. It takes the tea and herbs and berries. It takes the research too, but that's free. 

I need your help!

It's pretty simple. I need the support of amazing backers to help the dream become a reality. I've got some spectacular rewards too!

If you can't contribute that's okay! Please tell your friends, your family, your coworkers. Tell your twitter, your facebook, feel free to blog! We want to get this information OUT THERE because we want this to be a successful project!

And REMEMBER! This is an ALL OR NOTHING platform, so the more people know about us, the better!

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Updates!

4/27/12 - Holy heck! 4k!!! You are all AMAZING!

4/11/12 - Wow guys... I am honestly speechless. Late last night we pushed into 3K. It's official, we have hit the goal for the SECOND special thing I had planned. And I still have to talk the band into a video, which I'm hoping will be easy! BUT! We have 21 days left! What does this mean? Don't give up on the project! Keep advertising! From this point forward the money is going to go towards more advertising and possibly a real live website! How exciting is that? The best part? It's all possible, thanks to YOU!!!!! :D


4/5/12 - If I was shocked before! Wow! Thank you ALL SO MUCH! We have hit 2k!!!! What now you may ask? Well some of the accessories (tea steepers!) I've been dreaming of adding in are now becoming a reality! Also, if we hit 3k before the deadline I have a few surprises up my sleeve, possibly including a video of Pandora Celtica singing, just for my backers!!!!! 
Thank you all so much!


4/3/12 - Oh my goodness! In 1 day you amazing backers have pushed me to 93% of my goal! What does this mean? I'm hoping to increase my goal even further! 
The new goal? $2,000
What will it go towards? More supplies, more packaging options, more blends. The $1,000 goal was the bare bones of the project, with me adding my own funds too.
Now- if we hit 2k I promise each and every backer at the $8 level and above something super special in their packages. I'm still working out the details, but I'm really excited about it! 

THANK YOU!
