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

Owner Friday Elliott's unique take on blending stems from a neurological oddity known as Lexical-Gustatory Synesthesia. Due to this condition, Friday experiences language (both spoken and written) and abstract concepts as distinct flavor profiles. In short, she literally tastes words and ideas. This "superpower" allows Friday to create blends with a completely unique approach. With a background in herbal remedies as well as culinary arts and education, she shares her Tea Wizardry with people all over the world. Stop by the shop or order online to see what tea alchemy Friday's whipping up today!
