Join the journey to discover and imagine cool tea stuff + things.
13-Birds is the artist, maker, and content creator alter-ego of Pheinixx (that is me up there): brand designer, educator and sommelier.
I am a freshly licensed TAC Tea Certified Sommelier™ Professional with a long history steeped in tea culture, appreciation and experience working with Canadian food brands.
My first tea guides were my late grandmother and grandaunt, who taught me the ritual of tea time. Tea was brewed to cool us down in Jamaica, and also brewed to warm us up in Canada. A pot of tea is both the cornerstone of hospitality, and the means of private escape.
The inherent beauty and paradox that live in each cup is the reason I am so fascinated with tea.
