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.
Now for the basics:
Organic Ingredients: Meadowsweet, Cinnamon, Hawthorn Berry, Dandelion Root
(The turmeric version swaps out the Cinnamon for Turmeric Root)
Ethically Wild-Crafted Ingredients: Yucca
Batch Size: 2 ounces (approximately 20-25 cups of tea)
Options: Loose Tea (Sample, Bag), Teabags (Single, Sample, Bag)
The Turmeric version is available at the same link in our personal shop. We do not carry it on Etsy.
- Our Domino has since passed over the rainbow bridge, and she is sorely missed. I hope that the concept of an afterlife is right, and that she has met my grandparents and their cockers, and is hanging out with Jack and ‘Kita and Selkie and Tonks, waiting to see us again.
