Dark Metamorphosis (Organic Lapsang with Licorice and Lime)

This entry is part 9 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

‘Dark Metamorphosis’ began as an intrusive tea idea that insisted on being made before I made the thing I had originally wanted to blend.  (The worst part being that I haven’t actually gone back to make the original tea idea as yet.) The conversation that inspired ‘Lovely Day’ had also Continue Reading →

Abe’s OddiTea (Organic Chocolate Strawberry Basil Tisane)

This entry is part 1 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

The idea for ‘Abe’s OddiTea’ came from a grocery run and a picture of a candybar. Most of the time Mister Tea does the outside of the house errands on his own.  Part of this is that being in a car can be fairly painful for me, and part of Continue Reading →

Farore’s Valor (Organic Mate Tea with Mint)

This entry is part 8 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

A tea we were asked to blend required a new blend-of-teas tea to be created.  This became our ‘Triforce Tea.’ Having made that tea in salute to the Zelda-verse, we decided that we needed to make three companion teas to finish out the set. For ‘Farore’s Valor’ we began with Continue Reading →

Nayru’s Knowlege (Organic Coconut Blueberry Black Tea)

This entry is part 7 of 9 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 →

Din’s Vigor (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Rooibos)

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

A little bit back I was asked to create a custom tea.  I was sent a sample of a favored tea that had been discontinued, in order to create a Desert Sage Natural version of the flavour set. It required creating a blend of three teas to start.  Rooibos, Mate, Continue Reading →

Triforce Tea (Organic Roasted Mate, Rooibos, and Black Tea)

This entry is part 2 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

Sometimes when we are asked to create a custom tea, there’s an odd first step that has to be taken.  Especially when we are asked to recreate a favourite tea that has been discontinued. As a general rule, we are rather staggered by the sheer number of ingredients some of Continue Reading →

Minsc Chocolate (Organic Chocolate Coconut Almond Tea)

This entry is part 3 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

‘Minsc Chocolate’ is the second of our paired ‘Baldur’s Gate’ teas. A rich blend of coconut, roasted cacao nibs, and almonds, this salutes the somewhat crazy ranger companion you can have along through the games. The games themselves had an involving storyline, and a wonderful capacity to interact with your Continue Reading →

Boo’s Just Ducky (Organic Chocolate Coconut Tea)

This entry is part 4 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

Geekery.  One of the pillars of both our sanity and our business. Not the most important, but definitely something that informs much of what we do, and the internal sub-language of our household. ‘Boo’s Just Ducky’ was named in honor of an RPG that ate (probably entirely too) much of Continue Reading →
