Imagine one of those cloudy New Mexico days, where the sky hangs so low the mountains seem to be holding it up. It’s one where books keep us indoors and where drinking hot tea is as warming as a wool blanket. Tea.o.graphy, in Taos, makes organic, small-batch straight teas and blends, with names like Bisco-Tea-Cho, the Cat’s Pajamas, and Café Sans Café, using only organic, ethically sourced ingredients. They’re as pleasing to the eye as they are to the palate.
