While it saddens us to say this, May will be our last month at the New Egypt Flea Market Village. It was a difficult decision, but a necessary one at this stage in our business. Our friends at Butterflies & Heliotropes in Building 12E are being so kind as to allow us to set up a small space in their shop, so that our teas will still be available at the village! While the selection will be smaller than in our storefront, we will update the flavors each month to still offer a variety to everyone. Special thanks to Arlene & Tina for their kindness!
We have to say that we've loved our time at the village. We've met so many great and genuinely kind people while there, and loved the opportunity it provided us as a small, growing business. We appreciate the Heller family for creating such a great little space for growing businesses, and we will always have a special place in our hearts for the village.
While we will miss being there, we will definitely continue to go and support the village as customers. We encourage you all to do the same! It's a little hidden gem with some really great people there!
Our last day will be Sunday - May 27th.
Friday the 13th an unlucky day?! No way! We're breaking the Friday the 13th stigma today. We made THREE Tea for a Cause donations today! We made donations to two families on Paws 4 A Cure, and a donation to the Volunteer Auxiliary for Animal Shelters Inc. (which we also volunteer for)! Since we started our Tea for a Cause last year, your support of our Detoxic Avenger blend and your kind donations at events have helped us raise a total of $525 so far. While it may not seem like a lot, it means more than you know to those that receive the help. Every little bit helps and means the world to someone whose pet has fallen ill. We hope to raise even more over the next year! Thanks for your kindness everyone :) PS - The next time you see us at an event, feel free to take a look at our binder of all those we've contributed to! 🐕❤️🐈

We're excited to announce that our very own Bohemian Raspberry blend is now being used exclusively by Broken Goblet Brewing in their 2018 version of Bubba's Tea Bag ale! This ale is infused with green tea, raspberries, apples, hibiscus and rose petals. It's pretty fantastic, if we may say so ourselves. The guys over at Broken Goblet Brewing have mastered the art of making some great brews. They're planning to open an even bigger and more rockin' facility this month. Be sure to check them out at http://www.brokengoblet.com
Did you know it's Women in Horror Month ?! You do now! And as if that isn't rad enough, Morbidly Beautiful is doing a KILLER SHOPS series throughout the month, where they will be recognizing just some of the many horror inspired shops owned and operated by women that bring horror fans unique merch, bath and beauty products, art, coffees and teas, decor, and more. Be sure to check it out, and discover some new businesses! Morbidly Beautiful was so kind as to include us in their series (even though we're a duo here at BrutaliTeas)! You can view our article here:http://morbidlybeautiful.com/killer-shops-brutaliteas/
Thanks so much Morbidly Beautiful
Well, we just made our last donations for the year!
We made two donations to families on Paws 4 A Cure and a donation to S.N.O.R.T. - Short Noses Only Rescue Team, to help pups dealing with the dreaded "C" word :(
We just want to thank you all so much for your support since we started this fundraising cause earlier in the year. We wanted to turn our heartbreak into something positive, to help others, and to keep Griffin's memory alive. Your support, donations, and the stories you've shared with us at events have done just that. It's so nice to know that there are still compassionate people out there in the world that are willing to help others.
So again, thank you all for being so awesome as always! We hope to do even better next year with our Tea for a Cause! 💕 🐕 💕
Just a quick little post to let you know what we've been up to lately! Because of your kind donations and purchases of our Detoxic Avenger blend, we were able to do two donations this month! We made a donation of $100 towards the National Canine Cancer's fundraiser to launch a new Canine Cancer Center that (if successfully funded) could potentially help so many doggies beat their battle with cancer....and at a more affordable rate for their owners! We wish them the best of luck on this venture. You can find full details for this project at: www.caninecancercenters.com
We also made a $50 donation on Petchance.org, to a family in need of some financial help for their fur baby that has cancer on the small intestine.
While we have only started our fundraising this year, and our donation amounts are relatively small in the grand scheme of things, we know in our hearts that even the smallest donations can mean the world to someone whose pet is dealing with a terminal illness. That is exactly why we will continue to keep doing what we're doing, and why we are always so appreciative to all of you for your support with this cause. Just know you're making someone's day a little brighter, and contributing to research that can help kick cancer's ass one day! <3
