If I offer you $3 for a $2 bill will you take it?
That is the idea behind our “Purchasing Power Program” cards. Your advance purchase gives BOTH of us purchasing power. You get more for your money each time you visit, and in turn, we get much needed capital to stock the shop.
Purchase this card for $20
YOU Get $30-$40 of purchasing power for only $20
Card has a total of 10 stars or symbols (cost to you = $2 per star/symbol)
Each time you shop with us one star or symbol will get “punched” and you will receive at least $3 off your purchase that day
$3 value for each STAR
Special symbols (bus, bicycle, cat, snowflake) are each worth $5 if you qualify as follows:
Bus – Did you ride the bus today? show us your bus pass or bus ticket for that day
Bicycle – Is your bike outside?
Cat – Are you wearing a Tenth Life button, tee shirt, or hoodie?
Snowflake – Is it raining or snowing when you come in to shop?
Present the card to us wherever we are selling (Markets OR events)
Or you can leave the card on file in our shop, and the value will only be redeemed there.
If this worked, the above link should take you straight to the spot where you can place your pre-order to ensure you get some of our very popular, most local tea blend. We use real pumpkin and NO flavorings, and every pumpkin-food lover who tastes it wants more.
We will have about 3# for the rest of the season. Half a pound is already claimed.
Purchases completed in the order received.

We recently began offering tea at Clayton Farmers Market, thanks to the urging of Deb Henderson, and some of our customers – you know who you are
We are not able to be there every week, and will try to keep this website calendar updated. We also are primarily bringing only 1 oz sizes of most teas. If you are looking for something specific, or larger quantities, please call shop 314 647 TTEA or email Kateri by 1 pm Friday to find out if we can accommodate.
RE: Market at Washington University on Thursdays….I am very sorry to say that we have run into a transportation issue and will not be back there until mid-October. We appreciate your support and your patience while we work these things out.
Ackk. It has just been brought to my attention that our shop hours were not on the website. I have just rectified that oversight here:
Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat 10 am. – 6 pm. (and earlier or later for Maplewood events, as applicable)
Our phone # is 314 647 TTEA (8832)
Thanks to an increasing flow of foot traffic at the shop we are steadily restocking our shelves with brewing accessories and new teas, in addition to many of your favorites.
Now on the shelves:
- Black Locust honey from Robin’s Apiary – this is a light tasting honey, great for tea
- Newly popular MiniMinit brewing filters back in stock
- Some For Life Design mugs and infusers came in Tuesday
- Springball and heart shaped metal infusers are on their way
- Plumberry Black and Sencha are in, waiting to be packaged, and even Kukicha is making a comeback after a long hiatus
On their way:
- Runa Guayusa, popular high caffeine Amazon herbal, smooth and refreshing taste with health benefits of green tea, coming in Peppermint and Berry Hibiscus flavors in addition to the basic unflavored (Berry Hibiscus flavor won a SOFI award this month) link
- White Blueberry is gone on vacation, but we are bringing in White Pomegranate in its place
Shop OPEN today from 10am-4pm for your holiday tea refreshment
and New teas, such as White Pomegranate
This coming Friday 7/12 is 3rd Annual “Let Them Eat Art” Festival in Maplewood 6pm-11pm
(note, we will be open till 10pm, or as long as we are busy) AND
we will have Gluten Free/Allergen Free mini-cupcakes and petit fours from “This is CakeTown“ (come early! “Let Them Eat Cake-Town”)
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED ANNA & her cause! She made her goal, and completed the race with only the usual muscle strain.

Now we can get back to stocking teas and accessories, and coming up with more ways to help you Share Good Times with Good Tea.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
Sinks are delivered, plumber scheduled for next week. Extra electric has been installed to handle busy brewing needs. We still need a wall separating food prep from walkway to bathroom, and I have to finish painting the floor.
Have hired some extra staff, and wonder of wonders, they can all get together at the same time for a tea sampling and orientation!
Our target OPEN date right now is Tuesday 5/14…..Taste of Maplewood is Sat 5/18, and we really want to be open for you then – as a respite from crowds and heat or chill with a refreshing cup of tea.
Maplewood Chamber of Commerce has scheduled our ribbon cutting for Tues 5/21 at 5:15 pm – Please join us for that!
Meanwhile – the “tea shop that travels” will be at opening day of Tower Grove Farmers Market on Sat 5/4 from 8:00 am-2:00 pm with some new brewing options, and perhaps a new flavor of tea to refresh you!
Looking forward to Sharing Good Tea with our friends – both old and new!
