Rabbit Hole Collection By NovelTea Tins

Created by Noveltea Tins

NovelTea Tins are classic works of literature built into beautiful tea caddies. Inside, organic teas are blended deliciously to evoke the various stories of each namesake title. War and Peach? Pride and Peppermint? Do you have a taste for great literature? We want to provide you with some great taste IN literature. This year we’re back with three exciting new titles inspired by beloved children’s classics from Lewis Carroll, Beatrix Potter and J. M. Barrie.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Finally an update! Tea, tins, time and other things.

Dearest backers!  

We must apologize for the silence; all three of us has had their hands full and our momentum was hurt in the process. But fear not; we're still marching forward. 

Here's our current status on all NovelTea Things.  

Tea Update  

Finding the right blends took much longer than expected this round. We wanted to pick flavors that felt right for each book and title, but we also wished them to appeal to as many of you as possible. Licorice and pu'er tea can be divisive in nature. But we feel confident you'll enjoy our picks! If you'd like to try one early; shoot us a message below and we'll try to send out samples as soon as we have more!  

We made the decision to go with bagged teas. Many many backers have asked to do this (and some of you prefer loose tea). After much deliberation we chose to go with custom bagged teas prepared by our tea partners in Montana. The truth is that if NovelTea Tins are to survive as more than a Kickstarter project, then we need to make this move.  

(Anne of Green Tea Gables will remain loose leaf for her first edition.)  

The new bags will come in gusseted pouches, with colorful labels on them. Here's a sneak peek at where we're going with the designs.

Timing Of Deliveries  

With the switch to bagged teas (see above) we're facing a delay in fulfillment that could take as much as 2 months, some rewards might be fulfilled sooner if we can. As soon as we have a better number we'll be sharing these with you.  

Our dear shipping company sent us a container with no way to get the boxes out of the container. It took 5 hours to unload.

The New Tins  

Now to the good news: The new tins have arrived! And they're just as gorgeous as we dared to hope. In fact, the final designs have more to love on them compared to the original prototypes seen in the Kickstarter.  

The new spine designs are much more intricate and the embossed covers really make the art pop. We're having a hard time picking a favorite.  

As always the lighting is cruel to us, so we'll share a better picture once our photo studio is set up.

Other Things  

We've also received prototypes of various non-tea rewards. Keep an eye out for an update with those very soon. The framed artworks are crisp and the tea mugs pop with color. We'll share more details shortly!  

Another reason for the delay was our move to a new location. The Bay Area proved to be expensive for storage, so Jorgen's moved way north of our old home in the Bay Area. In the quiet mountain town of Mount Shasta we now reside and will be fulfilling all orders from there. 

Check out the video below for a small visit to our new base of opera-tea-ons.

Till soon!

New Tea Towels added + Lower price  

We've received requests for more tea towel designs, so we've added three new versions to our tea towel selection. Add as many as you like to your order for $20 each.

What about Pippi?
