Are you utterly obsessed with all things British? Do you marathon Doctor Who and swoon every time David Tennant flashes that grin? Have you been suffering a severe depression waiting for the return of Sherlock? Do you sip tea and indulge in your favorite scones while watching Downton Abbey and still secretly mourning the death of Matthew?
Well, worry not! If you're looking for a place to congregate with your fellow Anglophiles and talk it all out, Geeky Teas may be coming to the rescue! Geeky Teas is a nerd-themed tea and British shoppe specializing in hand-blended loose leaf teas and serving up confectionaries all in a setting sure to set any Whovian's heart aflame! And they want to bring a location to Los Angeles!
The business venture is the brainchild of "Clockwork Couture, The World's Fynest Steampunk Clothier and Clockwork Cature, animal rescue." So...what kind of thing are we talking about here? Well, it's not just any tea shoppe; according to their Indiegogo page:
First of all, no fake accents. No, just no. Instead we are giving those unable to make the trip across the lily pond a taste of life in a British store. Expect the nice girl with the mohawk and Doc Martens to show you the Ab Fab dvd's, advise you on which confectionaries go best with the loose leaf tea you've chosen, and why The Cure is the best band, ever*. Special order items no one else has, and obscurities you thought no one else knew about. Home to expatriates and locals alike, we won't just be an import store but rather a community center in which to share your love of Britania while getting your geek on.
Maybe you're tired of seeing a Starbucks on every corner or you just really want to be able to get a great cup of tea and chat about whatever your geeky heart desires and take part in one of their Doctor Who screening parties. Either way, this is a great opportunity to support an upstart business. And hey...one of their perks is tea!
