We’re pioneering tea as a modern American culinary experience. Our former careers as a designer and a French professor gave us incredible opportunities to see the world. In our travels, we discovered that tea could be flavorful, elegant and exciting. It became obvious how much American tea was missing. We were inspired to make tea modern, beautiful and pleasurable for Americans. And so we created August Uncommon Tea.
Up until now, tea has been a quietly neglected part of modern culinary culture in the US. It’s been missing careful attention to taste and preparation. It’s lacked the novelty and excitement that modern palates demand. That’s changing with August. We’re bringing tea into the 21st century, one cup at a time with astonishing culinary blends, small seasonal batches, and a modern brewing system. Once you taste August, you’ll expect more from tea.
