Geeking Out: CONvergence

CON was very fun this year, lots of good costumes, theme rooms, and theme cocktails! TeaSource provided tea for the convention and I gave a Geek Tea Presentation. We had 100 people in the room, but there were another 50+ outside that wanted to get in. (We brought them tea samples!) People asked lots of great questions, took home some fantastic prizes, and sipped some great classic British-style blends.

Geek Tea Presentation and Tasting

Here is a list of the teas we tried and the ones we gave away loose leaf samples of.


Teas we sipped:
East India Blend- For Arthur Dent From Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (because he references the E. India Co.)

Scottish Breakfast- For the 10th Doctor from Doctor Who  (because David Tenant is Scottish and also the best Dr.)

Lapsang Souchong- For Sherlock Holmes (because it’s the best tea for Brilliant deductions)


Teas we gave out samples of:

TeaSource Spice- For Jessica from Dune (The Spice must flow!)
(P.S. I am named after this character and will probably dress up as her for next year’s CON! Does anyone have a stillsuit I can borrow?)

Pi Lo Chun, Supreme- For Princess Leia from Star Wars (because the leaf is curled up into a little ball- like her hair)

Milk Oolong- For Princess Buttercup from the Princess Bride (Milk…butter…yup)

Green Dragon Oolong- For Danerys Targarian from Game of Thrones (She has Dragons and one is green)

Strong Assam- For Professor Snape from Harry Potter (because Prof. Snape is awesome…assam)

Earl Grey White Tip- For Captain Jean luc Picard from Star Trek (Earl Grey, Hot…tea of the 24th century)

White Tip Silver Needles- For Galadriel from The Lord of the Rings (elegant, floral, silver, just like a she-elf)

Jess and ...

Me and a loyal TeaSource customer, Nick

Can’t wait for next year’s event!

Until then,
Jess Hanley
TeaSource Manager
