SereniTea: Sacred Space (Organic Herbal Tea for Anxiety, Stress, and Panic)

One of the things that happens to the people in my physical reality is expressions of my Mama Bear streak.  (Admittedly, I say streak, Mister Tea would probably use a different word.  In fact, I can hear him ranting in my head as I type this.) This means I sort Continue Reading →

Rhapsody in Green (Organic Genmaicha, Fennel, and Ginger Tea)

As I think I’ve mentioned a few other places, tea ideas for me come from the most random places sometimes. In the general chaos of creating our TMNT Turtle teas, there was a bloke on Twitter who was very helpful.  He gave us a lot of input, kicked around ideas Continue Reading →

Archimedes Anodyne (Organic Chocolate Genmaicha Green Tea)

This entry is part 9 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

This tea had a long strange journey from idea to ready-to-introduce-tea. It began in a conversation with a Twitter friend about our teas, and how there were a dizzying number she wanted to try and had we ever considered offering a single teabag as a mini-sample. We hadn’t.  But once Continue Reading →

Splinter’s Brew (Organic Kukicha and Gunpowder Green Tea)

Mister Tea and I have an ideas file that is disturbingly long.  Recently, we actually split it out into multiple files, to sort of…  organize by idea type. Some of the time we come up with a name that we think would be spiffy, sometimes it is a flavour concept, Continue Reading →

Raphael’s Fire (Kukicha Gunpowder with Safflower, Chili, and Vanilla)

Once we’d finally acquired Kukicha and created ‘Splinter’s Brew’ – we knew we had to make a tea for each turtle. This ended up focusing on personality and colour of mask. For Raphael we needed red, of course, and something that covered his snark and …  angst issues. We crafted 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 →

Donatello’s Zen (Organic Kukicha Gunpowder Lavender)

One of the first tea name ideas we came up with was ‘Splinter’s Brew.’  We knew we wanted it to be a green and kukicha, and were fairly certain we would end up making teas for the turtles as well. However, it took a couple of YEARS before I found 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 →

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 →

Melody Green (Organic Lemon and Orange Green Tea)

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Doctor Who Beverages

‘Melody Green’ was blended due to our desire to keep our Whovian black and green tea offerings equal.  Sometimes this means creating another flavour, sometimes the taste we initially created will lend itself equally well to the other tea. The partner tea, ‘Melody Grey,’ was made to replace a favorite Continue Reading →
