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 →

Dragon’s Thorn

Tea ideas come from many places. In this particular case, I had gone to the Twitterverse to ask what people might like to see in an oolong. The conversation went a number of different directions, and this tea was one of the results.  Chatting about tea always gives me ideas 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 →

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 →

Jenny’s Jasmine Green

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Doctor Who Beverages

‘Jenny’s Jasmine Green’ came out of our desire to keep our Whovian tea offerings balanced.  As we have gift sets made up of them, we wanted to have teas for both those who prefer black tea and for those who prefer the greens and whites. The first tea for Jenny Continue Reading →

Cooper’s Curry (Organic Sweet Curry Green Tea)

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Doctor Who Beverages

‘Cooper’s Curry’ is a tea that was a ridiculously long time from basic concept to actual blend. Ages back, we’d created our ‘Bad Wolf’ to add to our array of Whovian teas.  The only problem was that it put our Whovian blacks at one more than our Whovian greens. We Continue Reading →

Browncoat Tea Sets

This entry is part 2 of 5 in the series Gift and Sample Sets

Firefly was an amazing series, and I am not alone in wishing we could have seen the story continue as a series.  I enjoyed the movie, but it wasn’t enough. The crew settled into our hearts, each in their own way – and years and years later they and their Continue Reading →

Leaf on the Wind (Organic Jasmine White Tea)

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Firefly/Serenity Beverages

  ‘Leaf on the Wind’ came out of a combination of two things – one was a search for a tasty tea a friend with thyroid issues could drink, and the other was a desire to experiment with white tea. It seemed fitting to create a Jasmine White Tea, as Continue Reading →
