The Blues Berries (Organic Blueberry Currant White Tea)

‘The Blues Berries’ was inspired by a conversation with one of the denizens of my tiny little corner of the Twitterverse. In the end, this wasn’t the tea she had been looking for, as the preference would have been for a much stronger blueberry flavour.  (Likely surprising no one who Continue Reading →

Merry & Bright (Organic Genmaicha Cranberry Tea)

From time to time I pick up a new ingredient somewhat randomly.  Our suppliers sometimes offer free shipping for over a certain amount, that kind of thing. Cranberries were one of these “I bet I could work with this” choices. The first test for strength of taste from the cranberries Continue Reading →

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 →

Peaches & Scream (Organic Peach Vanilla Oolong)

When we first began making tasty teas, we kept our tea choices limited to the ones that we knew well. Over time, our list of “foundational teas” has steadily expanded – some added because of direct requests, and some added because we stumbled over a new one that we wanted 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 →

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 →

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 →

Darth Apricot (Organic Chocolate Apricot Tea)

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

‘Darth Apricot’ was born out of the blending of another tea. A few months back, a Twitter conversation about writing snacks led to the creation of ‘Dahvana’s Dream.’  As I was working on that tea, I decided we should also have a strict chocolate apricot tea.  Given that both Mister 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 →

Dahvana’s Dream (Chocolate Apricot Caravan Tea)

This entry is part 6 of 12 in the series ChariTeas

Wandering into new realms of social media has been a very positive experience for me.  Especially Twitter, once I worked past my initial intimidation and confusion.  It has become a fairly amazing internet-space. I stepped into Twitter with relatively low expectations.  I wasn’t entirely sure how to approach it, and I was uncertain Continue Reading →
