About

Hiii!! Hey, there! Hello.

Welcome to the Geek+Tea Society!

For as long as I can remember I have loved plants. Plants are fascinating, they are all around us, and are completely taken for granted. 

I've wanted to create something to explore and celebrate this geekiness but not just a blog. I want to create an interactive forum where you can drive the story and content.  This is an idea and a project that has been brewing for years and it tickles me to know that I can share how awesome plants are, even if we just eat them and brew them into geeky teas.

Between my husband and I, we will be creating a wonderful collection of ethnobotanical references and building a Herbarium of magical folklore and tutorials on a wide range of topics related to herbology and gardening. It isn't just magical plants of Harry Potter (yes, we'll include those too) we'll discover flowers that heal, trees that feed, and berries that kill—plants that are the ally and the enemy. Our influences will come from travels through Middle-Earth, Skrim / Tamriel, pop culture and geek culture, and we'll boldly go where no tea has gone before.

We are also working on exclusive benefits for our Patreons inspired by some of your favourite geeky themes and games. From custom geeky artwork to downloadable content that will stretch the imagination through time and space, to solving puzzles to earn merch and testing your nerdy knowledge through a battle of wits. You can expect practical and satirical tutorials on how to garden like a Hobbit or Survive the Zombie Apocalypse. You'll go behind the scenes of our favourite geeky garden, watch endless hours of bees foraging in our Shire, and be inspired to try new recipes using our teas or brew up some mead to enjoy our geeky art and illustration.

With your support:
I can continue doing what I love; growing plants, making art and blending teas! This is only possible with the loving support of all you. Patreon or not, thank you for enjoying our geeky teas and our geek art, and sharing it with others! The funds raised through Patreon go completely back into our humble farm itself; with new equipment, I can upgrade and expand our crops and the production value of our tea! And then I can make cooler stuff for you guys!

It's because of you that I'm here. If you choose to support me, I will do everything I can to honour your support by improving my art, and returning the favour! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my humble page. 

Live long and prosper, and drink tea!
Aly Baker
