Ban.do x Color Theory Tea
Color Theory Tea has collaborated with Ban.do to create a limited release tea series for Mental Health Awareness Month!
Ban.do asked us to create 3 exclusive tea blends that represented positive feelings! Our team went through and curated a series of teas, created color palettes for each, and named them after the feelings they best represent.
THEN I (Jenna) worked months on my kitchen counter painting fun designs by hand on a reusable muslin bag you can keep forever ❤️ I signed each one!
