Dragon’s Heart (Organic Chocolate Oolong)

‘Dragon’s Heart’ is the last of the experimental oolongs we created per a customer suggestion. I am starting to feel like we should have a chocolate version of all of foundational teas. The name was easy – the Twitterverse (through a wonderful author I follow) pointed me at a children’s Continue Reading →

Type O (Organic Chocolate Hibiscus Tea)

‘Type O’ started as a weird brainchild of Mister Tea.  The idea came to him one eve when we were in the kitchen working on other projects.

‘Browncoat’s Desperation’ is one of a very few of our teas that started as a name, and the taste conceptualization followed later.
