Dragon’s Enlightenment (Organic Jasmine Oolong Tea)

The oolong teas we have created lately are a bit more work-a-day than many of our teas. When I first began working with tea, it was primarily about the herbs, putting all the study I’d done into play as helpful tisanes for health and well-being. When we first began creating Continue Reading →

Miracle Max’s Chocolate Elixir (Organic Chocolate Turmeric Anti-Inflammatory Tea)

I have wanted to create a tea that could be called a ‘tasty tea’ with turmeric in it for quite some time. Partly because I love turmeric, and partly because I know there are people out there who seek it as a component of tea.  Making one that was approached Continue Reading →

Red Son Chai (Organic Rooibos Chai)

This was a tea that had been waiting to happen for quite a while.  Basically since we started working with Rooibos as a foundational ingredient. Given my love of chai, I’m pretty sure my plan is to eventually have a chai for each type of tea that we make, along Continue Reading →

Peaches & Scream (Organic Peach Vanilla Oolong)

When we first began making tasty teas, we kept our tea choices limited to the ones that we knew well. Over time, our list of “foundational teas” has steadily expanded – some added because of direct requests, and some added because we stumbled over a new one that we wanted Continue Reading →

Taste of the Summerlands

‘Taste of the Summerlands’ was inspired by a carbonated tastiness we found at one of our local markets.  It was a day of outings and adventure for me – which are relatively rare, cherished, and highly valued.  (Also often a bad idea, physically, but mental and emotional health are important, Continue Reading →

The Smoking Gun (Organic Russian Caravan/Gunpowder Green Tea)

There are a number of our teas that began as an idea that we initially thought might be a little crazy.  It has become our practice to try them anyway, just to see whether it is a good crazy or a bad crazy.  (Except for the weird idea I had Continue Reading →

No Place Like Home (Organic Rosehip Vanilla Lemon Rooibos)

This entry is part 7 of 7 in the series ChariTeas

This entry is part 7 of 7 in the series ChariTeasWe’ve mentioned our new favorite pet rescue, Positive Paws Rescue Transport, a few times over the past year. They have helped us to make relatively grand strides in dealing with Dulce’s separation anxiety, as well as helping her to remember Continue Reading →

Expecto Coughonum

Most of our first medicinal teas were things put together for common conditions – the things that are going to happen at some point, because that’s just part of life. One of our first concerns was to cover all the various plagues that come along with the common cold or Continue Reading →

Moctezuma’s Mocha (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Chili Coffee)

‘Moctezuma’s Mocha’ was a natural outgrowth of living in a place where chocolate and chili are considered a completely normal combination, and having a mad blending day where we created a ridiculous amount of new coffees. It took me a while to warm to the concept of chili with chocolate, Continue Reading →

Taste of Tenochtitlan (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Coffee)

When we are making things, often a bunch of ideas in a similar theme, either taste or connection pile up.  Other times they just string together one after another, things we feel must be made. ‘Taste of Tenochtitlan’ was one of a series of coffees made on a madcap Blend Continue Reading →
