Regular price £2.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A postcard featuring the Heraldic Achievement of the First Tea Company.

The First Tea Company is a kind of fake "pre-enactment" group as well as an interactive artwork. Designed to feel military-ish, whilst in no way being actually  military, it came about partly because Geof loves tea, partly because he needed a fake military unit for a comic he was writing, and partly because Geof has a fondness for militaria but is also anti-war, and was hoping he could play with that.

The First Tea Company articles of membership are 1) membership entirely non-compulsory 2) find ways to appear military-ish 3) don't actually be military-ish 4) non-uniform uniforms 5) be able to declare that you "love tea". Since 2010 the FTC has recruited numerous members, spawned artefacts, a fake museum and a Facebook group, and has a thriving 5th column thanks to article (5).

Also available as an a3 Print. First Tea Company insignia, and other related art, is also available.
