Ivy’s Tea Co. has announced plans for a capsule of “Trap China” teacup and saucers sets, a line extension that couldn’t be more appropriate given Ivy Tea’s stated appreciation for hip hop culture (check out the “Trap China” Spotify playlist here).
The sets create delight through an unlikely marriage joining the playfully poetic spirit of African American vernacular with the stuffy aesthetic of a traditional tea cup.
Thus far, Ivy’s Tea Co. has previewed a cup that is printed with New York favorite “Deadass” on the inside of a pink cup and saucer though the drop will include cups featuring additional phrases and designs.
Launched in 2016 by “Tea Bae Shanae,” Ivy’s Tea Co.’s main product is herbal teas, along with traditional black, green, red or white teas, all of which are hand blended. The company also carries a collection of organic, herb-infused honeys.
Commenting on the launch, Shanae wrote, “I started Ivy’s because I wanted to see more Black people in the tea industry. A lot of people love our teas and now they’ll have something special to use when they drink them..”
Priced from $55-$75 depending on the complexity of the design, the collection will launch on December 10, 2019 at 8:00 AM EST on ivystea.com.
