We’re pioneering tea as a modern American culinary experience. In our former lives as a product designer and a professor of French literature and culture we experienced extraordinary food and drink around the world. In our travels, we discovered how elegant and exciting tea could be. And it became obvious how much American tea was missing. We were inspired to make tea modern, beautiful and pleasurable for Americans. So we created August Uncommon Tea.
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.
