NEW FOR 2024! Countdown to spring with the Mariposa 12 Days of Blissful Teas, a pyramid-shaped Advent Calendar of 12 pyramid tea infusers, each hidden behind a numbered door.


The Mariposa Collection’s tea blends were curated by Tea Forté Sommelier and Master Tea Blender, Piotr Miga in celebration of a six-year collaboration with The New York Botanical Garden. The tea collection features five blends with lush, fruity flavors and floral aromas including the beloved Cucumber Mint (green tea), White Ginger Pear (white tea), Lemon Lavender (herbal tea), Raspberry Nectar (herbal tea), while the fifth is a new herbal tisane that captures the essence of a tropical escape. Pink Papaya Nectar herbal tea is bursting with tropical fruit notes infused with juicy papaya and delicate flower petals. Its pink hue and refreshing light finish will transport you to an enchanting paradise.
