Do you believe in magic?
Just in time for spooky season, we opened our secret spellbook of tea potions, and selected a few of our favorites for you! In this box, you’ll find a variety of herbal, green and rare purple blends.
You'll also have the option to stay up late practicing spells, or catch up on your beauty sleep, because the teas in this box range from caffeine-free, to low and medium caffeine levels. These magic potion teas are color-changing, they're sparkling, and they're as fun to brew as they are to sip!
MAGIC POTION Sips by DAVIDSTEA
It doesn’t get more magical than DAVIDsTEA's Magic Potion tea! Add a squeeze of lemon to this juicy blue raspberry infusion and watch it go from indigo to violet – no pixie dust required.
The secret ingredient? Butterfly pea flower, a unique plant from Southeast Asia with naturally bright azure petals (that brings the added bonus of sounding like a legit potion ingredient). Try it as a refreshing caffeine-free iced tea or a berry-packed nightcap. With its colour-changing powers, it’s like a mood ring in your mug. Oh, and we highly recommend sipping out of a cauldron-shaped mug, it just tastes better that way.
This spooky selection comes from our friends at DAVIDsTEA, who have something to satisfy every palate and every craving, whether you're looking for a sweet treat or something more traditional. They also will help you make your best cup of tea possible, providing a line of innovative tea accessories designed in-house, from spoons and infusers to tea sets and travel mugs.

PURPLE BLEND Sips by FRIDAY AFTERNOON
Channel your inner sorceress with this one, because it’s positively magical! This tea contains edible glitter and is purple when brewed - it looks like certified witches brew (cauldron not included). Tart lime peel, smooth vanilla and a pop of purple lustre dust helps this glitter and glam tea blow your mind. This blend was inspired by rock legend, Prince, and the base is a rare Kenyan purple tea that changes color when citrus is added!
Owner Friday Elliott's unique take on blending stems from a neurological oddity known as Lexical-Gustatory Synesthesia. Due to this condition, Friday experiences language (both spoken and written) and abstract concepts as distinct flavor profiles. In short, she literally tastes words and ideas. This "superpower" allows Friday to create blends with a completely unique approach.
Friday even offers custom blending, where you can develop your own blend via email or in-house. With a background in herbal remedies as well as culinary arts and education, she shares her Tea Wizardry with people all over the world.
