Sometimes people find inspiration in the most unexpected places. Some find nature or other people inspiring, but Heather Penn found her drive to create in tea.

In 2006 Heather began drawing tea spirits as a way to creatively channel her love of tea. Since then she's drawn many beautiful creatures, each one inspired by a different tea. Heather mashes animals and plants together, creating the beautiful harmony of nature.

I invite you to grab a cup of tea and take a look at the beautiful Tea Spirits created by Heather Penn.

I'm glad there's variety versions of dragons. Everyone must of expected to be with a face of reptilian or bit of croc.
