TEXAS DESTINATION CANDLE
Texas Tea – Spindletop, 1901
Jan. 10, 1901, is the most famous date in Texas petroleum history. This is the date that the great gusher erupted in the oil well being drilled at Spindletop, near Beaumont, by a mining engineer, Capt. A. F. Lucas. This was the first salt dome oil discovery, and thousands of barrels of oil flowed before the well could be capped. Spindletop created a sensation throughout the world and encouraged exploration and drilling in Texas that has continued since.

Not only are you able to experience the rolling plains and rugged hills of Texas with this mini candle, your hand-crafted vessel can now double as an expresso cup, a taste tester for new drinks, or a small planter for succulents!
Music, art, and good eats are just a few things that make up the diverse culture of Texas. Dating back to the mid-19th century, Mexican American folk art has become a distinct signature of Texas culture, especially on the outskirts of the state and rural areas of southern Texas.
