Our Story

Friday Afternoon is a small family owned, geeky-themed tea company. Here you will find loose leaf tea, custom blends, tea wares and accessories, etiquette education, tea party catering and educational tastings.

Friday Elliott was raised on a spiritual retreat in California and grew up learning about tea in a medicinal context. In the early 2000’s, she discovered the joys of high quality loose leaf black tea and realized that tea is equally beneficial to one's happiness as it is to one's health.

Friday became obsessed with learning everything there was to learn about tea. Having been raised a "legacy geek" (her parents met in Star Trek club), she was able to find a way to blend her passion for teas with her geeky interests. Her business really took off when a friend wanted a special custom made tea blend for an Alice in Wonderland Party. The rest is history.
