S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strengthening and Healing Immunity Everyday for Life Defense)

This tea came out of a request for advice on rebuilding a weakened immune system.  A much loved parent was catching every bug that wandered nearish him. I understood the situation entirely, and empathized.  The recovery from my illness was followed by years of “Do I even have an immune Continue Reading →

Hershel’s Gift

‘Hershel’s Gift’ started with a different name, as a cold and flu tea that just about anyone would be willing to drink. I have always loved that elderberries are effective for both types of illness, given how amazing they taste.  We have some elderberry syrup that is mostly used on Continue Reading →

Fever-B-Gone (Fever Reducing Tea)

Fever-B-Gone was created for one of those basic needs.  Fevers happen, and depending on the day and the reason, need to be brought down. Unfortunately, I hadn’t thought to make a febrifuge until I was actually in the throes of a fever.  I’d realized I was getting a little loopy Continue Reading →

Bone Binder (Organic Herbal Tea for Bone Health and Healing)

Bone Binder was created because Mister Tea had a class with a guy who had a really bad accident.  There were broken bones, there were liver issues from an infection, and there was a complication due to antibiotics used in the hospital. Desert Sage Natural came up in conversation, and Continue Reading →

AnTeaInfection (Organic Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Viral, Anti-Fungal Tea)

Antibiotics are a brilliant thing, they revolutionized medicine, and raised life expectancy. However, the way they are used these days is a pet peeve of mine.  They are over-prescribed, often for things they will do nothing for.  They are put into the food of the animals we eat in frightening Continue Reading →

Out, Out Damned Gout! (Organic Tea for Gout)

One of the reasons we have so many medicinal teas is that if we are contacted regarding an issue that we do not have a tea for, I do my best to create one.  This also applies if it comes up when conversing about other teas, or the right teas Continue Reading →

Allerg-Ease (Organic Tea for Allergies)

Amusingly, this tea falls into a couple of our categories.  It was both necessary for me to create to feel like I was taking care of Mister Tea appropriately, and just seemed like a thing that we should have on hand. Mister Tea suffers from allergies that, twice a year, provoke Continue Reading →

Joyous Joints (Organic tea for soft tissue damage)

This tea was created because one of my god-daughters mildly dislocated her hip, and strained some other things in the fall that caused it. It was a tea that I probably should have blended far sooner, given my own issues with random dislocations, but I’d not thought to until she Continue Reading →

Sage Soother (Organic Tea for Inflammation and Soft Tissue Damage)

Inflammation and soft tissue damage falls into the category of “this happens, a lot.”  Like colds and flus and fevers and female monthly stuff, it seemed like an issue we should have a tea for. This tea was born during the creation of ‘Joyous Joints,’ a tea made when I Continue Reading →

NighTea Night (Organic Tea for Insomnia)

For a variety of reasons, insomnia is a fairly common problem these days. From stress and anxiety to wound up tension to depression to the brain that will just not stop thinking long enough to find sleep… there are a lot of reasons why that important period of recharge can Continue Reading →
