WELCOME TO WHERE TEA TELLS A STORY, AND STORIES ARE MAGIC.
In 2012, Aun-Juli Riddle set out to create taste experiences reminiscent of her favorite fantasy world--Middle Earth. Hundreds of tea blends later, she realized it was no accident and was far more than just a hobby.
Riddle’s Tea Shoppe was born in 2015 from the darker corners of Diagon Alley, you know, the bricks laid against Knockturn Alley. Products evolved from hand-painted mugs and awkward plastic tea bags, and with the enthusiasm and creativity from Joe Long, after a busy year, RTS really took flight!
We (Joe & Juli) spend our days and nights imagining new products and designs, and it’s an incredible feeling as partners, best friends, and artists to get to work together on things we’re both so passionate about. Read on for more about us and our amazing team!
Meet the Team
Creator & Owner. Tea curator. Artist.
Painting and pining for the worlds in books generally takes up most of Juli’s time. She collects Lord of the Rings books and beverages.
Owner & Designer.
When not designing tin labels and enamel pins, Joe enjoys working with glass, taking naps, and collecting robots.
Production Manager & Quality Control.
Making sure everything is perfectly packaged and ready for the customers are not the only things Chris is amazing at! She’s known for her adorable amigurumi and crafting ANYTHING imaginable out of wood. (PS. She’s also the best because she’s Juli’s Mom, so you should send her love and cookies!)
Social media assistant: DeathEatersTeaClub / AurorTeaSociety.
When she's not posting as a Death Eater or an Auror for DETC and ATS on instagram, she is obsessing over Wuthering Heights, autumn, and camera settings. She also really likes cheesecake.
