The idea for ‘Return to Dexterity’ was inspired by Mister Tea’s uncle having a particularly severe bout of something along the lines of carpal tunnel syndrome.
The idea was pushed aside by life chaos, and just sat perfecting itself in the back of my head somewhere.
A few months later I received an odd query regarding one of our Dog’s Life teas. I’d blended one for our oldest, who sufferers from arthritis. The query was whether or not it would work for people as well. It would work quite handily, but I didn’t think humans would like the taste of it.
The question reminded me that making one for humans had been on the list for ages, and I decided to finally get around to it. I sat down, rechecked my research, finished my sketch idea for the blend, and ran it through our testing process.
I have been very happy with the response to this tea. Knowing that we are actively helping people makes every single day brighter.
‘Return to Dexterity’ contains Meadowsweet and Yucca for inflammation, with the Meadowsweet doing a bit of pain-killing, and the Yucca assisting with longer term soft tissue health. We added Hawthorn Berry to ease the wear and tear of consistent pain on the heart, Dandelion Root to help the liver and kidneys with pain and fatigue toxins, and Cinnamon as a catalyst.
After a request from a customer, due to a Cinnamon allergy, we have crafted a second variant on this tea which replaces the Cinnamon with Turmeric – which is one of my favorite roots. Lovely taste, and packed with goodness, including anti-inflammatory properties.
Now for the basics:
Organic Ingredients: Meadowsweet, Cinnamon, Hawthorn Berry, Dandelion Root
Ethically Wild-Crafted Ingredients: Yucca
Batch Size: 2 ounces (approximately 20-25 cups of tea)
Options: Loose Tea (Bag, Jar), Single Serving Sachets
If you are taking prescription blood-thinners, we do urge caution with our teas that contain Cinnamon. Please check with your doctor if this is the case.
