Purchased to complete a basket for my mom for Mother's Day. She absolutely loved it! The tea comes in very nice packaging and a free full sized sample tea was also included!

Our Tea Advent Calendar is a wonderful way to count down the days to Christmas. Enjoy a different flavor of tea every day from December 1st to 24th. A lovely way to treat yourself to a few peaceful moments each day during the holidays.
Want a good strong cup of tea? Our Organic Ceylon is hearty and rich ~ perfect for a morning wake-up or an afternoon pick-me-up.
Spring is here! And so is our new Black Currant tea!

About

Where the ordinary experience of drinking tea becomes extraordinary

I’m passionate about quality tea and enjoy searching for and sampling tea from all over the world. But what delights me most is introducing others to the many pleasures of great tea.

My love of tea prompted me to open a tea shop called "Kindred Spirit" in Key West, FL, back in 2000. I attended my first World Tea Expo in 2002, where I continue to go annually to meet tea growers from around the world, take classes in blending, keep up-to-date on tea's health benefits, and ­­– mostly – taste hundreds of teas.

In 2006, when one door closed (alas, my lovely little Key West tea shop could endure no more hurricanes), another door opened and I found myself moving to Santa Fe, NM. Before I was even settled, I got requests from former customers who wanted to order the tea they’d grown to love at Kindred Spirit, so I launched ArtfulTea in 2007 as an online business. It wasn't long before my love of handmade (and vintage!) brought me to the wonderful world of Etsy.

Since then, I've also opened two physical shops: one is at the Santa Fe Farmers Market, and the other is just 2 blocks from the Historic Santa Fe Plaza. If you're ever in Santa Fe, please come see us at 117 Galisteo Street. And be sure to introduce yourself when you come by!

The tea collection at ArtfulTea includes more than 75 exceptional teas. I personally blend many of these fine teas and I carefully package each and every tea by hand. I'm grateful to have the chance to share my passion for tea with you and, I trust, provide you with a perfect cup of tea.
