Do you have a mess of teas in your house? We did for the longest time! My husband is a big fan of tea – especially to serve our guests on Shabbat afternoon. He likes to have lots of different flavors and brands.
Which means that our “tea cupboard” is overflowing with tea goodness.
Enter the Tea Book, co-designed and created by the son of a dear friend of mine. It is a fun, innovative solution to tea storage – which any tea-loving family will appreciate.
Its innovative design allows users to store, share, and serve tea – all from one neat book. Even better, it takes up almost no room – so we suddenly gained almost an entire cabinet. And of course, it’s a fun conversation piece, which all of our Shabbat guests have enjoyed as well.
Noah credits his late mom for helping him to develop a prototype, but says that the team improved on the original TeaBook concept by creating a product that’s green. It’s made of recycled and recyclable materials.
The team’s next goal is to manufacture the product in the United States.
According to Jeffrey, “We’ve secured a commitment from our manufacturer that if we meet our Kickstarter stretch goal, they will move the manufacturing process from China to the United States. That means better control over the labor and environmental implications of the manufacturing process.”
Also unique to the Kickstarter campaign — which ends in just six days — is that it includes access to the company’s exclusive line of fine teas “Collect-Teables”. These literary-inspired varieties, such as ShakeSpearmint and AgathaChrisTea, come packaged in an artistically drawn foil that, of course, fit perfectly into The TeaBook.
The TeaBook and Collect Teables are available for purchase on Kickstarter through the end of the month. (A $30 pledge will get you your own TeaBook!)
