Currantly Nuts (Organic Currant Coconut Black Tea)

Currants are one of my favorite fruits, and one I have wanted to add to our ingredients list for quite some time. They were also difficult to find in a format where they could be used for tea. We did find currants, but were sadly unable to find organic currants. Continue Reading →

Pie of the Tiger (Organic Cherry Pie Tea)

This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

We rewrite songs in this house. Not usually completely, but my brain will spit out random bits of rewrite attached to a situation or a joke or…  and apparently this habit is infectious. We’d been discussing making ‘Defenders’ teas, and I was rambling about my failed make-a-tea-that-was-infused-with-whiskey experiment and how Continue Reading →

Leonardo’s Leadership (Organic Kukicha and Gunpowder with Blueberry and Cornflower)

Once we’d gotten ‘Splinter’s Brew’ sorted, we knew we had to make teas for the other turtles.  Since making the teas based on pizza preferences seemed a little…  weird, even for us, we decided to try to make the teas centered around colour, and in some cases, attitude.  (I do Continue Reading →

Cowabunga (Organic Kukicha Gunpowder Orange Turmeric Tea)

The TMNT turtle teas were a fun project. We wanted to start with a foundation of ‘Splinter’s Brew’ and then add things in the right colour ranges that would also taste good. For Michaelangelo’s tea, our options were slightly limited.  Calendula tends to be more yellow than orange, and I Continue Reading →

AnTeaInfection Plus (Organic Anti-bacterial, Anti-viral Herbal Tea with extras)

‘AnTeaInfection’ has been one of my go-to teas for illness and infection for quite a long time. However, sometimes it needs to be paired with other teas to properly fight whatever sickness is currently making life more difficult. Sometimes remembering all the teas I should be drinking and then managing Continue Reading →

Lady LiberTea (Organic Elderberry Cinnamon Earl Grey)

The taste of this tea was sparked by an accident, of sorts. Our personal tea making supplies sometimes get short shrift when we’ve had a busy day or are really tired or…  We always thoroughly rinse them, but they do not always get dumped into hot soapy water and scrubbed. 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 →

No Place Like Home (Organic Rosehip Vanilla Lemon Rooibos)

This entry is part 7 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

We’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 how to make friends with other dogs.  (She wasn’t aggressive, Continue Reading →

Ent Draught (Organic Fortifying Herbal Tea)

‘Ent Draught’ was sparked by a couple of things. One of them was my desire to pair elderberries with as many different foundational taste elements as I have access to.  Not only are they one of my favorite fruits, they are quite good for you, on a variety of levels. Continue Reading →

Nayru’s Knowlege (Organic Coconut Blueberry Black Tea)

This entry is part 6 of 7 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

‘Nayru’s Knowledge’ was one of five teas created due to a custom tea request. The desired tea required a blend of mate, rooibos, and black tea.  As per our typical protocols, we crafted this separately.  The tea blend would be the foundation, and we wanted to be sure we had Continue Reading →
