NovelTea Tins™ resemble great books with original MoTeaf™ artwork and uniquely blended teas inside, flavored to the theme of a classic novel.
We believe in the nourishing power of great literature. Accordingly, NovelTeas is building a carefully-designed collection of tastefully-decorated and punningly-worded tea tins. These gloriously structured tins reflect and arouse interest in certain classic masterpieces. And they also happen to contain magnificent organic teas.
Our product inspires readers – young and old – to indulge their imaginations and expand their world perspectives by means of the plots, themes, character portraits, ethics and values of timeless novels. In tandem, our organic teas and vintage works of art reflect the essential flavors and social implications of great literature. Collect, display, share, learn from, and teach by something delicious.

We pour as much effort into each tin as an author into a book.
Award-winning independent artists and tea blending experts collaborate to design and pair NovelTeas titles to the perfect tea flavors. For example, Our Don QuixoTea™
tin cover shows the Man of La ManChai™
pouring his companion a steaming cup of chai. Between the covers - our Don abides - an adventurously spiced and exceedingly idealistic blend of rich cardamon, red cinnamon, black tea and the root of ginger.
NovelTea Tins™ are a reality thanks to 767 wonderful backers on Kickstarter.
In just 30 days, we crowdfunded $45,978; over 400% more than we asked for. Our backers came from all corners of the earth, tea drinkers and book lovers, helping us appear in several stores across the United States, including Manhattan's legendary STRAND Bookstore. KickStarter Backers also helped us pick our fourth tin; Pippi Oolongstocking
(now coming soon.)
