Lovely Day (Organic Lemon Balm and Lavender Tea)

‘Lovely Day’ was inspired by a conversation with one of our ‘Tea of the Month Club’ members.  When we come close to the last month of tea, I always offer them the option of choosing their final tea. In this particular case, that offer turned into a conversation regarding the Continue Reading →

Helga’s Loyalty (Organic Barley, Hawthorn, Calendula, Apple, Cinnamon Tisane)

This entry is part 2 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

We knew from the creation of ‘Beauxbaton’s Blend’ that we eventually wanted to have teas for each of the Hogwarts houses – and for Durmstrang – but it took us ages to get around to it. The idea had been discussed, in a general sort of way, and I had Continue Reading →

Dog’s Life: Ditch the Itch (Organic Anti-Itch Herbal Blend)
