The Norn Compass (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Black Tea)

This entry is part 8 of 8 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 →

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.

Azrael’s Snack (Milk Chocolate Blueberry Cocoa)
