Like my first creative decks, the Tea Bats Lenormand deck began its life in the pages of a story of mine. A trio of sisters were obsessed with bats and tea and ran an emporium devoted to them in the town of Orange Moon Downs. The deck itself was based on the poem by the Mad Hatter in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland:
“Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you’re at! Up above the world you fly, Like a tea tray in the sky. Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you’re at!” – The Mad Hatter
The first edition of this deck featured smaller cards at just 2.5 by 3.5 inches in size. It came in simple packaging that was meant to invoke a since of vintage times. Alas this edition has been retired and is no longer available. You can view the current second edition here.
