“Girls Just Wanna Have Naps” (with apologies to Cyndi Lauper)

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Altered Song Lyrics

Mister Tea and I start rewriting songs for a variety of reasons.  Sometimes it is Chronic Life connected (Here Comes the Pain Again is a favorite inside my head), sometimes it is for a tea (Pie of the Tiger), sometimes it is just because we are a bit odd. Recently Continue Reading →

Social Media and Knowing what we’re up to

The world of social media is vast, and there are, frankly, too many options to keep up on. However, we do keep a presence in a few places, and are working to expand into a couple of others. Sadly, there are drawbacks to each platform, so I wanted to give Continue Reading →

Dog’s Life: Ditch the Itch (Organic Anti-Itch Herbal Blend)

Growing puppies end up being itchy.  Especially giant breeds.  They are stretching so swiftly that itching is just a part of the process. Add to this general allergic response, and it looks fairly miserable. Our Raubahn puppy does not seem to be adjusting well to the plant matter in New Continue Reading →

Dog’s Life: Allerg-Ease (Organic Herbal Blend for Canine Allergies)

Our little-big-puppy, Raubahn, has had issues with the allergens in New Mexico since he arrived. Initially we hoped he would acclimate, but once we were fairly certain that wasn’t going to happen, I turned to my research skills. This is a blend intended to ease a dog’s allergies. Organic Ingredients: Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Sacred Space (Organic Herbal Tea for Anxiety, Stress, and Panic)

One of the things that happens to the people in my physical reality is expressions of my Mama Bear streak.  (Admittedly, I say streak, Mister Tea would probably use a different word.  In fact, I can hear him ranting in my head as I type this.) This means I sort Continue Reading →

Rhapsody in Green (Organic Genmaicha, Fennel, and Ginger Tea)

As I think I’ve mentioned a few other places, tea ideas for me come from the most random places sometimes. In the general chaos of creating our TMNT Turtle teas, there was a bloke on Twitter who was very helpful.  He gave us a lot of input, kicked around ideas Continue Reading →

Grey’s Secret Garden (Organic Rosehip Vanilla Cornflower Earl Grey)

The concept of this tea has been around for quite a while.  It had been suggested that one of the obvious things that we lacked was a take on a ‘Cream Earl Grey.’ I put it onto the “work these up at some point” list, and it promptly disappeared into Continue Reading →

Currantly Nuts (Organic Currant Coconut Black Tea)

Currants are one of my favorite fruits, and one I have wanted to add to our ingredients list for quite some time. They were also difficult to find in a format where they could be used for tea. We did find currants, but were sadly unable to find organic currants. Continue Reading →

Pie of the Tiger (Organic Cherry Pie Tea)

This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

We rewrite songs in this house. Not usually completely, but my brain will spit out random bits of rewrite attached to a situation or a joke or…  and apparently this habit is infectious. We’d been discussing making ‘Defenders’ teas, and I was rambling about my failed make-a-tea-that-was-infused-with-whiskey experiment and how Continue Reading →
