The Music Behind the Tea: Dots and Loops

Stereolab's 1997 album Dots & Loops might be the most August album. We named our tea blend after this LP because it evokes the effervescent flavor of apple with an unexpected twist of fennel and clove. It's a classic with new energy and vibrance.

Stereolab effortlessly fuses the hypnotic style of Krautrock bands such as Neu! and Can with the lyrical sophistication of 1960s chanson française.

August founders Gina and Aaron have a love for Stereolab that goes beyond their music. The band also represents a cultural moment from their time in Chicago. Aaron and Gina spent countless evenings at the legendary Rainbo Club, where you would rub elbows with Stereolab members and collaborators.
