About the Project

At Tea with Tae, we live in a world where consumer packaged goods and technology collide--more specifically, where tea and tech overlap. We not only thrive on building efficient systems in the back, but we also thrive on creating beautifully-packaged and deliciously-tasting tea blends. Real. Tea. 

The NFTeaWithTae project is our entry into the world of blockchain and NFTs (although we did start accepting crypto payments back in November). NFTs give us a new way to promote our tea, particularly some of our new and not-yet-on-the-shelf blends, which hopefully will encourage you to try a tea you haven't tried before. This is our first drop of redeemable NFTs, and we are hoping to do many more in the future with new and exciting blends and products, so stay tuned by subscribing to our email list. Or better yet, join our Discord: https://discord.gg/uAWA8byJwh

Digital NFTs + Tea Bento Boxes: These are NFTs with utility. Each NFT is backed by a real, physical one-of-one, limited edition Tea Bento Box. The NFTs will be auctioned off starting today (Jan. 1st) and run for 3 weeks through Saturday, January 22nd at 11:59pm MST.

50% of the profits (i.e., 50% of everything over 0.012ETH minus gas fees) will go directly to the victims of the Colorado Marshall Fire. TWT is based here in Denver, and as many of you know, our beautiful neighbor up the road, Boulder, Colorado, was recently hit with devastating wildfires. Estimates say that nearly 1,000 homes were destroyed, but we won't know the full scope of the destruction for several more days. We are passionate about making great tea, but we are even more passionate about taking care of our friends, family, and loved ones, especially those right here in our own backyard.  

FAQs:
What is an NFT?

An NFT, or non-fungible token, is a unique, identifiable digital asset stored on the blockchain. An NFT could be a piece of digital artwork, a collectible, or even a digital representation of a real-life physical asset, such as a Tea Bento Box. Ownership of an NFT is easily and uniquely verifiable due to its public listing on the blockchain.

What is a Tea Bento Box? What type of tea is in the Tea Bento Box?

The Tea Bento Box is a premium gift box that contains an assortment of six different tea tins, each tin containing five tea pyramid sachet bags. Inside each pyramid tea sachet is loose-leaf style tea (with full leaves and herbs, not fannings), but it is not loose-leaf tea. They are tea bags. 

How do I get a Tea Bento Box NFT?

You can bid on the Tea Bento Box NFTs on the OpenSea platform. If you are the highest bidder when the auction concludes on January 22nd at 11:59pm, then you will be permitted to purchase the NFT with Ethereum. 

To transact on OpenSea, you need a digital wallet. To setup a digital wallet (MetaMask), you can follow these instructions here. If you're curious about other wallet options, then you can read more here

Once you have your wallet setup, you will need to buy and/or transfer ETH into your wallet. You can buy ETH directly through MetaMask or through an exchange, such as Coinbase or Gemini, and then transfer the ETH from Coinbase/Gemini to your MetaMask wallet.

Where can I see my NFT?

Once you have bid on (and won) one of the Tea Bento Box NFTs, you will be able to see your NFT on OpenSea or on other Ethereum-based NFT marketplaces.You can simply connect your digital wallet (e.g., MetaMask) to the marketplace, which "signs you in," and then you can browse the NFT(s) in your wallet through the marketplace's interface. 

How does the auction work on OpenSea?

The auction will be a traditional English auction where the highest bid wins at the end. There are 10 Tea Bento Boxes, with each Tea Bento Box opening at 0.005 ETH (or approximately $20 USD based on the ETH-USD exchange rate at the time of this writing). You can read more about how timed auctions work on OpenSea here.

What can I do with my NFT if I win the auction?

You can redeem it for a real, physical, limited edition Tea Bento Box. Or, you can sell it to a secondary buyer after the auction ends. Once you own the NFT, it's your property, so you can do what you want with it -- redeem it, sell it, hold it.

How much will the Tea Bento Box NFTs cost?

Each of the 10 Tea Bento Boxes are set at an opening price of 0.005 ETH, or approximately $20 USD as of this writing. The open market auction will determine each of the NFTs final prices.

How do I redeem my Tea Bento Box NFT?

Within each Tea Bento Box NFT is unlockable content that only the owner of the NFT can view. Each of the Tea Bento Box NFTs has a unique access code that allows you to redeem your NFT for the corresponding limited edition Tea Bento Box.

If you are one of the lucky winners of one of the 10 Tea Bento Box NFTs, then instructions on how to redeem your NFT for the corresponding Tea Bento Box will be located in the unlockable content section of the NFT that only the owner of the NFT can access. If you are having issues with redeeming your NFT, please contact us at hello@teawithtae.com.

Can I resell my Tea Bento Box NFT?

Yes, you can, but note that in order for a secondary sale to take place, the original owner must not have redeemed the NFT yet. It is true that the original owner of the NFT will have had access to the unlockable content, including the redemption code, but any potential buyers can double-check with us at hello@teawithtae.com to see if a Tea Bento Box NFT has already been redeemed or not. We will also be posting the redemption status of the Tea Bento Box NFTs in the table below. 

How do I know you're really going to donate 50% of the profits to victims of the Colorado Marshall Fire?

When the auction is over, we will calculate the total amount received across all 10 limited edition Tea Bento Boxes. Our out-of-pocket costs are approximately 0.012ETH plus gas fees for each Tea Bento Box. All sales over 0.012ETH for each Tea Bento Box is "profit," and 50% of the aggregate profit will be distributed to victims of the Colorado Marshall Fire. Each dollar we donate will be publicly posted, so you can track exactly how much money is donated and where it's going. For example, we anticipate that some of the funds will go to Colorado Gives, which is raising $5 million for the Boulder Community, but we also anticipate donating some of the proceeds directly to families who lost their homes in the fire. We will have more information about the donation recipients after the auction concludes on January 22nd.
