    "Wonderbound is an amazing contemporary ballet company that I have been lucky to call my client over the past year. Their rehearsal space in the RiNo district is amazing and open to the public. I just had to grab my camera and head down there one morning to capture the spirit of the space, the dancers and the creativity that flows from the building."

    / Comments (0)

    Colorado-based Teakoe's tea, currently served in over 190 restaurants throughout Colorado and surrounding states, is popular. So popular, in fact, that they get overwhelming request from customers wondering how they can buy the tea to brew at home. Teakoe has responded by creating a small batch line of craft iced tea exclusively for retail.

    “We create big flavors by paying close attention to the little details,” says Founder Pete Jokisch. “We’ve harnessed the unique ability to formulate full-flavored refreshment using a ‘craftsmanship’ mentality.” Each blend is crafted in small batches and specifically developed to taste great over ice. The collection displays an experience driven, micro-brewery-inspired design and branding style unlike anything else on the shelves.

    As all good brands do, Teakoe has cause — leading the charge to rebuild the bee population in communities where they do business, starting with Colorado. Through the “Buy Teakoe, Build a Beehive” initiative, Teakoe sponsors and builds beehives within the local community.

    Teakoe’s Craft Iced Teas are currently available in select Whole Foods Markets and fine
    gourmet retailers. The look for the new brand comes courtesy of Matt McDonald — lead designer and developer for Teakoe.
