Return to Dexterity (Organic Tea for Carpal Tunnel and Arthritis)

Closeup shot of a small white bowl. Peeking up over the edge you can see a blend of meadosweet, Turmeric Root, Hawthorn berries, Dandelion Root, and Yucca.

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.  It seemed like the sort of problem we should have a tea for, as there are many ways in which soft tissue can get injured, and I’d like to cover as many bases as I can.

The idea was, sadly, 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 at-the-time oldest1, who suffered from arthritis.  The query was whether or not it would work for people as well.

Interestingly enough, it would have worked quite handily, but I didn’t think humans would like the taste of it.

To be entirely honest, I was pretty sure humans would find the taste rather distressing.

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.

After a request from a customer, due to a Cinnamon allergy, we have created a second variation of this tea which replaces the Cinnamon with Turmeric – which is one of my favorite roots.  Lovely taste, and packed with goodness

The name of this tea is a play on a song title.  Given that the uncle who started the whole process of this tea is a musician – primarily rock guitar – this seemed particularly appropriate.

    This arrived one day early! I tried some today, at first didn’t like the taste much but once I added some honey I was good to go. I have rheumatoid arthritis and wanted to see if this tea would help with it as well. Some of the swelling in the joints in my fingers seem to have calmed down and didn’t hurt as much after drinking. -Updated 1/4/14 I used the dexterity again this morning. My shoulder had been bothering me and heat, cold, biofreeze and a muscle relaxer yesterday hadn’t helped. One cup of dexterity this morning and 20 minutes later it had stopped hurting! So for sure this one goes on the “need to buy a ton” of list. 🙂 –

    Kei-Hawk chatted with me at length about which tea would be most suitable for the after-work aches that keep me from sleeping well and advised this one. For other kinds of aches there are other teas. Thoughtful packaging in recycled-kraft bags, and the eco-friendly mailer, reveal the considered manner that distinguishes this shop.
