Bio of company
Established 2002 by first becoming a collector of specific teapots, we determined to learn more about vintage, and new collectible teapots! This journey has become an adventure! We are located in Indianapolis Indiana, USA. We bring to this site collections of new and old teapots from everywhere, and will ship everywhere. lots of items we have in our retail location are not on this website, so if you want something special ( white tea? lavender tea,a special chai made up,vintage teapot?)call me or email me....we probably have it.
This adventure has led us to "accidentally" become known for our teas! Of course, we know nothing happens "by accident". We are blessed with much favour!Our most popular tea is our Canterbury Tea (for over 10 years!!), made as a signature tea for The Canterbury Hotel downtown Indianapolis.The second most popular is Komodo Dragon Tea. I create signature teas for many businesses and ship my tea everywhere!Our ingredients are all real. and NO chemical anything is added.I now have (2016) 900+ different blends! I am amazed!I hope you stop in and sample them, we have tea made every day. and if you cannot stop, please feel free to request a sample, I would be happy to send it!
Our newsletter is available to anyone who would like to be on our e-list. We include new information we learn about specific teapots or makers and specials we may have from time to time.(sorry I don't send out too often, too busy...) We hope you enjoy our site and come again and again~ Donna
P.S. We would love it if you would bookmark us as a Favorite! Thanks for visiting!
