Why You'll Love This Brand

We love that Friday uses her incredible ability to craft unique and delicious loose leaf tea blends - each one has a unique story and fitting name, and you can find fun seasonal and themed blends. Friday even offers custom blending, where you can develop your own blend via email or in-house!

Based in Seattle, Washintgon, Friday Afternoon is a small family-owned, geeky-themed tea company that provides loose leaf tea, custom blends, tea wares and accessories, and educational tastings. 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. With a background in herbal remedies as well as culinary arts and education, she shares her Tea Wizardry with people all over the world!
