New Monthly Tea Special:
Earl Grey-Dolphin
During the month of April only!
Our Earl Grey Dolphin is a custom blend made for our friends and neighbors at the Grey-Dolphin yoga studio. The combination of our Earl Grey Honey Bush includes the uplifting benefits of  bergamot which acts as a mood elevator and a tonic for the digestive system and is full of antioxidants that help fight off infection from colds and the flu. The addition of sage promotes deeper relaxation and added fortification against sickness. Sage is known for it’s ability to calm the nervous system while stimulating the body. This makes it an ideal pairing with yoga.
Grey Dolphin, our neighbor and collaborator for this tea is inspired by the blend of all these delicious properties to aid their students in their yogic practices.

PSWE is a conglomeration of ladybeasts who emit compellingly dissonant Slavic-style vocalizations from our mouthparts. We enjoy sparagmos but we can sometimes be placated with offerings of [preferably red] wine.

Soporus is a Philadelphia-based ambient drone ensemble which features guitarist and keyboardist Matthew Stone and bassist William Stichter from well-known instrumental act Saxon Shore. Guitarist Stephen Hoffman and bassist Matthew Thomas regularly contribute their talents to recordings and live performances. The live show also features films and videos edited on the fly by additional member Michael Stichter.
 
As children of the Cold War era, Soporus are heavily influenced by a lifelong fascination with the quiet power of nuclear energy – the seemingly miraculous ability to calmly harness intense reactions coupled with the lingering fear of potential disaster. Soporus continue with the nuclear power plant themes established on their debut ep, Atómové Elektrárne (2005), with their full-length 24,110 (2008), and the forthcoming Windscale Pile No. 1 (2017).

Stephen Hoffman’s solo electric guitar work explores the lyrical and expressive side of ambient instrumental music. Loops and pedals, of course, are employed, but fingerpicking, creative approaches to ebow, and a distinctive quarter-picking technique bring unique textures to the mix. It’s pleasant and organic music.
