HORROR SHOP OF THE WEEK: GRIMOIRE TEA
One of the first few shops I spotlighted when Kyle was kind enough to ask me to contribute to this incredible weekly horror roundup was Burial Grounds Coffee Co, a shop that brilliantly combines two of my favorite things in this world: coffee and horror. But there is one thing I love as much as coffee, and that’s tea.
Coffee and tea are my yin and yang. One keeps me energized and focused, while the other helps me unwind and relax. Without either in my life, I’d have a hard time functioning. So, of course, once I found the absolute best source to fuel my coffee addiction, I needed an equally killer source for my essential tea fix.
Then, along came Grimoire Tea and changed my life!
If you follow me on Instagram at @srgreenhaw, you’re likely familiar with my Grimoire Tea obsession. This shop specializes in making delicious loose leaf tea blends inspired by my favorite fandoms (including Disney, Harry Potter, Horror and Sci Fi).
As much of an avid tea drinker as I am, I’ve never had tea this good. Made with a wonderful variety of all natural and organic ingredients, each blend is a unique experience that truly feels indulgent. Both stunning to look at and intoxicating to smell, these teas also happen to have the most amazing and insanely flavorful taste.
As a graphic designer by trade, I care almost as much about packaging as the product itself. And Grimoire Tea delivers in spades. Each exquisitely wax-dipped bottle comes with a beautifully designed label reflecting the blend’s character or film inspiration. I love how gorgeous these bottles look on display.
The site is updated regularly with a variety of new blends and limited restocks of fan favorites. But they sell out incredibly fast, so you’ll want to be sure you’re following Grimoire Tea on Instagram at @grimoiretea to be notified for upcoming restocks and new releases.
I’m also thrilled to announce the introduction of Monthly tea boxes, each featuring 5-6 unique blends tied to a theme. Each blend will come in airtight bags with another lovely label on the back highlighting the blend names and ingredients. The first theme is Harry Potter, and it comes with enough for 40-50 cups of tea, including a never-before-released blend and an extra surprise. That box is closed, but you’ll definitely want to stay tuned for the next release, which promises to be equally amazing.
