First Taste of Home (Organic Chocolate Blueberry Tea)

This entry is part 14 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

‘First Taste of Home’ was born out of a combination of annoyance and my sometimes oddly applied sense of responsibility. In this particular case, it wasn’t annoyance at a label, or annoyance at an ingredients list – it was due to one of our ingredients having changed texture. I’d received Continue Reading →

Orphans & Models (Persistent Sale Page)

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

As we’ve mentioned a few times, once we’ve created a new tea, we are left with the product photo batches and samples – with little use for them here.  This is also happening to older teas as we update our photos and posts. For the samples of Simply Tasty Teas, Continue Reading →

Wilde’s Wassail (Earl Grey Cranberry Spiced Tea)

Back in late December, Mister Tea and I were having a Doctor Who day with a couple friends. I was having a day where I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the current array of teas, as far as what was wanted and what seemed right. I’d grudgingly allowed myself to run Continue Reading →

Elvenguard (Organic Rosemary Earl Grey)

Elvenguard began as a salute to two of our friends and their relationship. Tea-Ra and Spoonie Doolittle started as voices heard on Twitter, and became treasured friends.

An Unexpected Journey (Decaffeinated Teas)

The journey to the realization that we could – and should – offer more tasty blends that did not contain caffeine was a long one. And for that, I feel I should apologize. It started closing on a year ago, when a lovely lady who had been gifted our Tea Continue Reading →

Even Dreams Must Sleep (Organic Herbal Tea for Sleep)

A few weeks back I was settling for my standard attempt at sleep. We’d done most of our nightly rituals, and I was in a pretty standard state for me – fairly solid bodily exhaustion, with brain whirring on about everything from plans for apocalypse options to tea flavours to Continue Reading →

The Shapes of Clouds (Organic Black Tea with Lemon Balm)

There were many things that came out of the Doom Flu that stole my January and sent me into a catch-up scramble that I haven’t finished with yet. The Shapes of Clouds was one of them. Flus are interesting, and so are the various forms of delirium one can experience Continue Reading →

Accio Spoons (Organic Herbal Tea for Muscle Relaxation)

Accio Spoons was the product of the collision of a few things. The first was a ridiculously bad flu that knocked me out for most of January. The second was the fact that end of year stock clearing had left us in a bad place as far as access to Continue Reading →

Sanctuary (Organic Lemon Balm, Barley, Hawthorn Berry Tisane)

One of the things that Mister Tea and I have decided to attempt to do is make it so that any flavour set we create that is caffeinated will have a companion tea that is either herbal or actually made with decaffeinated tea. Amusingly, this was actually a decision my Continue Reading →
