Letter from the Chairs
Happy Thanksgiving from Clockwork Alchemy!
We hope you are all well, healthy, and hale! This has been a particularly difficult year and we know many of you are not able to spend this holiday in person with your loved ones. Challenging as these times are, there is still art, music, theater, and beauty in this world. We hope the contents in this month’s newsletter can point you towards some of those bits of respite and enjoyment as we celebrate the creativity that connects all the Clockwork Alchemy Family. This season, we are most grateful for you, our Clockwork Alchemy Family. Till we can be together again, be well and thank you for being a part of our community!
Alyssa, Co-Chair of Clockwork Alchemy
Steep Thoughts from The Aviary Teahouse: Tsubame Kuckicha
Welcome to Steep Thoughts! The Aviary is the imaginary teahouse of Astra, CA’s Head of Logistics. When she’s not building conventions with her amazing team, she’s a life-long tea enthusiast who reads too many books on the subject and will talk your ear off if given half a chance.
Mixing cultures a little today. Trying out this Tsubame Kukicha brewed in my Korean cha-gwan. Served with sea salt mochi and yak-gwa on vintage Japanese Lusterware.
Steampunk, Belly Dance, and Prince Albert
By Dawn Devine ~ Davina

by Katherine L. Morse
A steampunk serial adventure with a new author every episode!
“Super Mondo chai, please. Two raw sugars.”
Please just get your drink. I have a date with destiny…or insanity…and I really need a cold brew. “Super Mondo cold brew, um, please.”
