Say Hello to our Tea Collection! (2021)
6 months ago – Tue, Mar 16, 2021 at 12:50:54 AM

Greetings, Baristas!

You have been asking, and we are here to answer: "What is in your tea?"

One of the unique aspects of how we make games is leaning REALLY heavily into the theme. So much so that we've made a custom blend of teas to enjoy when you play!

(NOTE: We recorded this in 2020 when my name was still "Al")

This update, we are going to give you a lush, beautiful dive into the three custom tea blends crafted by St. Bastian's Tea Company. Since this game is all about the art of blending tea, we thought it would be fun to show you some of that art while answering your question!  First off, we have a video we shot talking about some of the inspiration for the tea and how it relates to the game. You can check that out here:

If you want the visual breakdown, we have that for you below in tasting order!

There is a LOT going on in TranquiliTEA, but it all comes together in a robust, cuddly profile that feels like snuggling in a warm blanket. If you have ever asked yourself "why are herbal teas so thin and watery?" this Tisane has your back. It's probably the most robust chamomile tea I've tried. And I have worked in coffee and tea houses for 10 years.

INGREDIENTS: Chamomile, Apple Pieces, Lemon Grass, Rose Hips, Lavender, Orange, Natural Lemon Flavor, Blue Cornflowers, Rooibos Tea & Natural Jasmine Flavor

The eponymous tea of our collection! ProsperiTEA has a clean, crisp body based in a blend of THREE different green teas. Orange peels, ginseng, and a hint of mandarin add a gently citrus note to this very drinkable afternoon tea.

INGREDIENTS: Green Tea, Orange Peel, Ginseng, Ginger, Marigold Flowers, Natural Mandarin Flavor, Natural Orange Flavor & Natural Lemon Flavor

IngenuiTEA is a simple, yet complex black tea with a lot of contrast. The Assam tea provides a very sharp, astringent quality that plays well with the full, robust aroma and flavor of Almond and Aniseed. Reminiscent of licorice and roaming the dusty halls of a majestic library.

INGREDIENTS: Ceylon, Assam, Natural Almond Flavor, Natural Caramel, and Aniseed

In the next update, we bring Prosperitea to a popular online gaming platform, teach you how to properly taste tea, and talk about the eco-friendly mission of Prosperitea and Mentha Designs.

Thank you all for your support so far and remember to like, share, and help spread the word about the project! We want to bring you the best tabletop experience possible and we can't do it without the support of the community.

Greetings, Baristas New and Old!

We funded super fast! And we got close to $8k before I finished taping this video! We are doing much better than last year and this tiny team is VERY excited by all of this energy.

I will have a lot more time and energy tomorrow to catch up on messages and feedback from the community, but this video says most of it. (I have been juggling A LOT this weekend, but that is a story for another time)

We are excited to have you and I am personally looking forward to building a joyful experience for all with this campaign. We have a number of cool live play events scheduled on twitch, lots of previews and reviews to highlight, and a lot of great content to share from our last campaign to address questions you may have about how we are running things.

For now, i just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am touched, humbled, and finding renewed purpose and confidence in all of your energy. I hope you are also having a wonderful start to your week!
