We are jubilant to be able to offer something *extremely* exclusive in the AL1CE world – handcrafted, specialty AL1CE tea! We partnered with Justin Bastian of St. Bastians Tea Company. We have worked with Justin for almost a decade in collaboration with the Sypher Arts Collective, the organization that puts on the Labyrinth of masquerade Ball in Los Angeles every year. Justin approached us with an inspired idea; he had the perfect vision for what AL1CE tea should taste like. He brewed up a prototype batch for us and we were hooked since.
This is what they say about their process of creating and refining their teas.
There was a time where tea was not simply a commodity beverage; it was a journey. Each new blend was a peek into another corner of the world, a glimpse at the flora of a region distinct to each skillfully crafted batch, peppered with herbs and spices unique to the corner of the world that originated the leaves.
It is a passion for this idea of tea that drives St. Bastian’s. We scour the world for herbs, spices, and ingredients to craft unique experiences in each cup. We craft small batches of expertly blended teas that capture much more than a fine cup of tea. At St. Bastian’s, we are enamored with the journey and excitement of unique teas and we promise to share it with you in every bag.
