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.

Wow! 

We are simply blown away by the amazing support of this communi-tea. 

Because it is purely thanks to you that we've not only surpassed our minimum goal ON THE FIRST DAY, but we've raised over $36,000! In comparison our last Kickstarter raised a total of $75,000 in thirty days. 

This is all your doing; we've had no media coverage, and our ad budget is less than the price of a complete collection. Thank you kindly to all of you for continuing to share the project. 

 WHAT ABOUT PIPPI? 

We never expected to see these numbers so early in the campaign; we're now investigating if it's possible to make a stretch goal to bring her back for purchase. Her tin is produced in very small batches for our Kickstarter campaigns, but if we continue to see backers pour in like this, there might be a number where we can financially manage to bring her back. 

Stay tuned.

STRETCH GOALS GALORE 

Even more impressive, you have already unlocked the two first stretch goals; double the amount of tea with each tin, and bookmarks too! Both of these stretch goals apply to all backers, regardless of what tier you backed. This also applies to the next Stretch Goal, so everyone has a reason to continue sharing the campaign.

We'd also like to remind you that you can message us directly here, email us at contact@novelteatins.com or even ask on Instagram or Facebook, if there's ever a question you might have. We're on California time, but will try to get back to you as soon as possible if you message us. 

 Warmly,
Johnny, Jorgen and Mitch

Onwards to the next stretch goal! We've wanted to pour some attention on 'Anne of Green Gables' for a while and now is our chance. This tea will be a sprightly green tea cuppa, (perhaps with raspberry) inspired by L.M. Montgomery's timeless novel. 

 If we reach $50,000 in funding, all $99+ pledges will receive 1 oz of our planned Anne of Green Tea Gables tea blend. You'll also be able to add her tea blend to your pledge as an ADD-ON for $12,- Making her tea will be the first step towards a future NovelTea Tin for Anne, illustrated by Lily Jones. So if you're a F(anne) of Green Tea Gables, make sure to share the campaign and help us get there.  

All pledges over $99,- will get 1 oz of Anne of Green Tea Gables if we reach $50,000 in funding.

NEW ADD-ON: TEA TOWELS
over 1 year ago – Fri, Oct 13, 2017 at 05:44:14 PM

 

 

DRY HUMOR?  

You asked, so we deliver. Introducing, our first ADD-ON for this Kickstarter... 100% Cotton Tea Towels! Featuring artwork from Down the Rabbit Hole, we found a highly recommended maker, Sweet Clementine Print, who's providing us with beautiful, lint-free, Flour Sack tea towels made from 100% cotton.  

The towels are free of all dyes and thus wonderfully safe for use around food. Flour Sack towels are unique compared to other towels and have distinctive sewn edges and are not perfectly square - adding to their character! 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can choose from these three unique designs:  

1. PU'ER RABBIT

2. PU'ER TEA SET

3. MAD HATTER 

More designs will be made available if we reach our next stretch goal. Which design would you like to see?

How To Get One? 

For a dry sense of NovelTea Tins humor, add $22 per towel to your pledge on Kickstarter. Free Worldwide shipping! Grab a set of 3 towels for $60. We'll ask you after the campaign, to confirm the design you want.

Did you know? The tea pot seen on the front and back of Pu'er Rabbit is based on Beatrix Potter's own Edward VII Coronation Tea Pot. It also appears in one of her stories; do you know which one?

Pippi Oolongstocking Update!
over 1 year ago – Fri, Oct 13, 2017 at 05:44:07 PM

 

 

She's the strongest girl in the world and there's only one way to catch her...  

Here on Kickstarter.  

The trouble is that we originally made so few Pippi Oolongstocking Tins that we will soon run out of her completely. Many of you have thus asked what it would take to bring her back...  

So we crunched the numbers and found that if we reach $95K we'll be able to produce more Pippi without bankrupting our small venture.  

HOW DO YOU GET PIPPI OOLONGSTOCKING?

Once we reach $95K in this campaign you will be able to switch any Tin you've ordered during this Kickstarter to a Pippi Tin OR you can add a Pippi Tin to your existing order for $32 more. 

HOW DO WE REACH $95,000?

So unless one of you are as rich as Pippi and have $40K sitting around, the best way to bring her back is to share the Kickstarter on Facebook and Instagram and with your friends by email. Every pledge brings us closer (and Johnny does a fist pump).

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE

I'm already expecting a Pippi tin with my pledge; will this affect me?
You'll be able to add more Pippi tins to your pledge, but other than that you're good. We have enough Pippi left in stock to supply you. 

Can I add $32 to my pledge now and get Pippi?
You can add $32 now to help us get to $95,000. Once we reach $95,000 we'll make a special pledge if you JUST want Pippi. Switching pledges is easy. If we somehow don't reach $95,000 you can always cancel your pledge or pick one of our other tins as your reward. 

How do I add more to my pledge?
To change your pledge amount, visit the project page and click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount. Then, on the following page, select "Change your pledge". From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or choose a new reward tier altogether.
