Grey’s Secret Garden (Organic Rosehip Vanilla Cornflower Earl Grey)

The concept of this tea has been around for quite a while.  It had been suggested that one of the obvious things that we lacked was a take on a ‘Cream Earl Grey.’ I put it onto the “work these up at some point” list, and it promptly disappeared into 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 →

The Norn Compass (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Black Tea)

This entry is part 8 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

This tea was created to celebrate the wedding of a dear friend.  If you follow our teas, or our blog posts, she (and her apocalyptically cute wee one and one of her gigantic dogs) have shown up from time to time. When she and her partner decided that they were Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Mom’s Mate (Organic Mate Rooibos Black Tea Blend with Spices)

We have a habit of recreating teas that other companies discontinue, as our clientele knows we can find the taste they were missing, though our versions are usually proclaimed as far better than the originals. ‘Mom’s Mate’ started as a small bag filled with tea for us to test, and Continue Reading →

Earlderberry Grey (Organic Elderberry Earl Grey Tea)

‘Earlderberry Grey’ was created due to a couple of factors.  The first is that Elderberries are so lovely, both in taste and in health benefits that I wanted to have as many options as possible involving them.  No matter your personal preferences, unless it is just hating fruit in beverages, I Continue Reading →

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

This entry is part 1 of 7 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 →

Leia’s Legacy (Organic Cinnamon Black Tea)

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Star Wars Beverages

Mister Tea and I have been mildly embarrassed for quite some time regarding our lack of anything attached to Star Wars. I’m not entirely certain why it took us over two years to get around to blending one, though the fact that creating new teas counts as ‘playing’ and isn’t Continue Reading →
