“Yes, that’s it! Said the Hatter with a sigh, it’s always tea time.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
I couldn’t agree more! I love tea, and make time for it several times a day! It’s soothing, comforting, and delicious. What could I possibly love more about it? Well, enter Piper & Leaf, an artisan tea company based right here in Huntsville! These talented folks have brewed some of the most tantalizing blends of tea I’ve ever tasted: orchard peach, healing honeysuckle, coco candy cane, peaches n’ cream, smashberry, and a smorgasbord of others!
After meeting with them late last year, we started plans for an editorial shoot once the gloomy Winter passed. On one random beautiful Monday, everything aligned and were lucky to receive a taste of early Spring! Alongside my friend Ginny (at Sleepy Fox Photography) we photographed one of the most incredible group of people who have mastered their tea craft!
We frolicked in the sunshine, basked in the glow of the late afternoon, drank refreshing tea (of course), and ended the night with a beautiful bonfire and chili dinner. This was more than a photo shoot, it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship between artists and entrepreneurs! I’m extremely excited to see Piper & Leaf’s brick and mortar store open up at Lowe Mill soon – April 1st is their target opening! It will be so wonderful seeing another fabulous business call Lowe Mill their home!
