This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

‘Nayru’s Knowledge’ was one of five teas created due to a custom tea request. The desired tea required a blend of mate, rooibos, and black tea.  As per our typical protocols, we crafted this separately.  The tea blend would be the foundation, and we wanted to be sure we had Continue Reading →

Din’s Vigor (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Rooibos)

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

Miso Tofu Bok Choy Stirfry

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Adventures in Cooking

We didn’t take any pictures as we cooked this one, but it turned out so nicely I wanted to share the recipe. Mister Tea and I are trying to aim for less meat in our diet.  This has happened for a number of reasons, and is actually something I have Continue Reading →

Children are People: Why ‘No’ always means ‘No’

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Heavy Content

Around a week and a half ago, this landed in my Facebook feed. Given how Mister Tea and I reacted to it, I feel I should warn that if you have experienced trauma that caused trust issues or PTSD, this may stir things up a bit. Despite that, and in Continue Reading →

Some Weeks are Heavier than Others (04/29/16)

This entry is part 11 of 11 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: It’s been a long stretch.  Short period of time, but one that has felt unending.

Melody Green (Organic Lemon and Orange Green Tea)

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Doctor Who Beverages

‘Melody Green’ was blended due to our desire to keep our Whovian black and green tea offerings equal.  Sometimes this means creating another flavour, sometimes the taste we initially created will lend itself equally well to the other tea.

This entry is part 10 of 11 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Still more than a week later, but closer than the last time.  I may be finding a rhythm for things again. Our biggest excitement is a return to normalcy.  Or, what counts for us as normal.  In a very specific area. Our chickens are finally Continue Reading →

Earlderberry Grey (Organic Elderberry Earl Grey Tea)

‘Earlderberry Grey’ was created due to a couple of factors.  The first is that Elderberries are so lovely, both in taste and in health benefits that I wanted to have as many options as possible involving them.  No matter your personal preferences, unless it is just hating fruit in beverages, I Continue Reading →

Triforce Tea (Organic Roasted Mate, Rooibos, and Black Tea)

This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

Sometimes when we are asked to create a custom tea, there’s an odd first step that has to be taken.  Especially when we are asked to recreate a favourite tea that has been discontinued. As a general rule, we are rather staggered by the sheer number of ingredients some of Continue Reading →
