spicy black tea with tobacco and pineapple notes


You’ll love this if you’re into intense flavors, spicy-sweet combos, chai, and strong breakfast teas. Silencio has been a hit with coffee drinkers and is amazing with milk.

Causing a sensation in top LA restaurants like Winsome, Dark Iris is incredible iced. A creamy and rich peach floral tea that will delight your tastebuds.


organic green sencha tea with forest stawberry and silver linden


With real pieces of forest strawberry and orange zest, Skylark is a sparkling, refreshing green tea. Delicious iced.

Ventura Highway

sunny green organic oolong


A very special oolong, reminiscent of green tea, with a delightfully silky mouthfeel and a light citrus aroma. Grown at 700 meter elevation in the mountains of Thailand and harvested by hand, this tea can be reinfused up to three times.

Days of Heaven

sweet rhubarb, lemon verbena and chamomile. caffeine free.


Have you ever had a rhubarb tea? This one is incredible. Naturally creamy and sweet, it evokes the flavor of a rhubarb pie. It has tons of flavor and zero caffeine.

Why we created August Uncommon Tea

August was borne out of profound frustration. We were disappointed with nearly all the tea we had tasted in America and we knew it could be better. We recognized a fascinating culinary challenge.

At the time, Gina was teaching cultural history while exploring her lifelong passion for the sense of smell, and Aaron was working in avant-garde product design, so we partnered to create something that was both imaginative and epicurean.

Now, we are shaking things up, disrupting the status quo, and asking people to question their assumptions about tea. We’re working to make tea extraordinary.

Thank you for being part of the adventure.

— Gina Zupsich & Aaron Shinn
