If bingeing Bridgerton earlier this year made you wish you could hightail it to a high tea, you aren’t alone. Stephanie Synclair, who founded her fancy tea brand LaRue 1680 (larue1680.com) in 2020, saw sales skyrocket alongside the popularity of Shonda Rhimes’ show. And for good reason: her loose-leaf blends are organic and sustainably harvested, Synclair herself is charm incarnate, and her candy-colored aesthetic is cute af. Plus, she believes tea is the bougie self-care we all deserve, whether we’re being courted by a hot duke or not. –Lisa Butterworth
