Rowena’s Wit (Organic Black Tea with Turmeric, Ginger, Ginseng, and Cornflower)

This entry is part 5 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Many many moons ago, back in the early days of discovering that I could make teas just for flavour as well as for health – we created our first just-for-taste Potterverse tea.  “Beauxbaton’s Blend” led quite directly to the thought that eventually we should have teas for each Hogwarts house, 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 →

SereniTea: Sacred Space (Organic Herbal Tea for Anxiety, Stress, and Panic)

One of the things that happens to the people in my physical reality is expressions of my Mama Bear streak.  (Admittedly, I say streak, Mister Tea would probably use a different word.  In fact, I can hear him ranting in my head as I type this.) This means I sort Continue Reading →

Ent Draught (Organic Fortifying Herbal Tea)

‘Ent Draught’ was sparked by a couple of things. One of them was my desire to pair elderberries with as many different foundational taste elements as I have access to.  Not only are they one of my favorite fruits, they are quite good for you, on a variety of levels. Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Raven’s Rest (Organic Chocolate and Barley Tea for Stress)

When I created ‘Ravensong,’ the first of the teas made due to the encouragement of friends to turn my skills to a wee bit of self-care, I knew that I would need to make an herbal version. I drink entirely too much caffeine, and one of the ways to start Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Comfort & Joy (Organic Herbal Tea for Stress, Anxiety, and Illness)

The holiday season, whichever one you speak of, can be glorious and beautiful and bring you happiness as you spend time with friends and family. The preparation for those events, however, can be stressful enough to make your head explode and your body more prone to various infections and illnesses. Continue Reading →

Caspian’s Chai (Organic Herbal Chai)

When I put together our chai sampler, I was reminded of the fact that we did not have a decaf chai. My preference for creating decaf blends is to choose an herbal foundation for the tea, rather than using a decaffeinated tea. Hawthorn Berries are one of my favourite consistent Continue Reading →

Molly’s Morning Magic (Organic Vanilla Ginger Barley Tea)

This entry is part 1 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Our teas have this propensity for being a bit habit-forming.  Most of the time I consider this to be a Very Good Thing. However, it gets a bit more complicated when a favorite tea is full of caffeine and a friend who loves it dearly becomes pregnant. ‘Weasleys’ Winter Warm-Up‘ Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Hummingbird’s Haven (Organic Herbal Tea for Stress, Anxiety, and Depression)

I’ve forged a lot of relationships on the internet.  It still sometimes amazes me how you can find a friend through a friend and then find another…  on and on in an interconnected chain. One of the people I met this way was in a place not unfamiliar to Mister Continue Reading →

Steve’s Three Alarm Zen (Organic Chile Green Tea)

This entry is part 3 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

‘Steve’s Three Alarm Zen,’ our chili green tea, is one of our ChariTeas, and is attached to the memory of a man that I hold a deep respect and love for. This past year has been a complicated one for Mister Tea and I.  There has been a lot of Continue Reading →
