2023 Muggles Market: KTeas / Moments In Tea

We are excited to announce the return of the Muggles Market, just in time for Valentine’s Day! This year’s theme is Muggles Market: Love and Plunder, combining our adoration of pirates and love. As usual, you have a wonderful opportunity to get to know our artists, writers, artisans, and entertainment through our Muggles Market Spotlights.

Kathryn Isaacs of KTeas / Moments In Tea is a returning artisan with our Muggles Markets. We asked them a few questions about their life, work, and what treasures they’ll be bringing to Muggles Market: Love and Plunder.

Please tell us all about the plunder you’ll be bringing to Muggles Market.

We’ve hoarded a marvelous cache of loose-leaf dry teas, including pyramid sachets which contain loose-leaf tea for loose-leaf quality with teabag convenience. Our plunder includes accessories to make steeping loose-leaf tea a breeze, and mugs and teacups to enjoy your tea. Recent plundering has yielded Tea & Chocolate Pairings just in time for Valentine’s Day gifting!

How did you get started making your glorious plunder?

Once upon a time, there was a Tea Lady and a Cup of Tea. The Tea Lady found that a cup of tea had the magic to transform mundane moments into extraordinary Moments In Tea. She began to share these Moments with her friends, to enjoy each other’s company, to bring comfort, to share that they can have their own personal Moments In Tea. One day, the Tea Lady met a Tea Gentleman to share Moments with. They realized that they could share these Moments In Tea with so many more Tea Friends through a website. They learned about Tea and began to build a thoughtfully curated collection of teas from all over the world to share through the website. Both the learning and the curating are ongoing processes. So is the website; be on the lookout for a new website soon named for Moments in Tea.

What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?

We are especially excited about the recent addition to our booty of themed mugs graced by fandom and gaming images and expressions. We’re also excited about tasty Tea & Chocolate Pairing gifts.

What else would you like everyone to know about your wares?

None of our teas have been submerged in any harbor, Boston or otherwise.

What’s your favorite love or pirate story and why? 

I could say my favorite love story is the true story of the Tea Lady and the Tea Gent.
I could also say the movie IQ will always hold a special place in my heart because on the day the Tea Gent proposed to the Tea Lady, we spontaneously took in a movie, went to the theater without knowing what was playing, when (pre-online Now Playing lists or buying tickets). We chose IQ on a lark, it started in a few minutes, and we ended up in a Private Showing (no one else bought tickets for that showing!) for a love story about an Ed and a Kathryn (the character spelled it Catherine, I believe)!!
