Salazar’s Ambition (Organic Gunpowder/Caravan/Cacao Nibs/Peppermint Tea)

This entry is part 3 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Shortly after creating Beauxbaton’s Blend, we realized we should probably make teas for each of the Hogwarts houses, as well as for Durmstrang. We put the idea into the file, and it sat there for a while. Conversations within the august and patient Tea Naming Group led to some scribbled Continue Reading →

Farore’s Valor (Organic Mate Tea with Mint)

This entry is part 7 of 7 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

A tea we were asked to blend required a new blend-of-teas tea to be created.  This became our ‘Triforce Tea.’ Having made that tea in salute to the Zelda-verse, we decided that we needed to make three companion teas to finish out the set. For ‘Farore’s Valor’ we began with 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 →

Dark City Mint (Organic Chocolate Mint Tea)

When we first began making teas for taste alone, there was one suggestion that came up over and over again. Even if Mister Tea hadn’t already had a deep and abiding love for almost all things chocolate mint, this tea would have had to be created. It has been described Continue Reading →

Minty Frog (Organic Chocolate Mint Tea)

This entry is part 9 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

‘Minty Frog’ was born out of a fairly simple concept. We had created an amazing chocolate mint tea, our ‘Dark City Mint,’ but for one slight potential issue.  We’d created something that had no actual burst of caffeine, and sometimes people need that. So, we settled down with our array Continue Reading →

The Mintalist (Organic Peppermint Black Tea)

When we sat down to decide on our Fall and Winter teas, I was a bit surprised to discover that we did not already have a peppermint black.  We have our ‘Black Lemon Frost,’ but the lemon & mint appeals in a different way.  Sometimes you just want some mint Continue Reading →

Winter is Coming (Ginger Peppermint White Tea)

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away… Okay, it wasn’t quite that bad. A number of years back when I could still pretend to drink conventional tea without repercussion, there was a tea Stash had that I liked.  It wasn’t a daily drinker, it was a mood Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Mellow Breeze (Organic Mint Anti-Anxiety Tea)

  Our SereniTeas are teas formulated to assist with the mind and emotions. Many of our teas in this group are for dealing with stress and anxiety.  There are a sizable number of herbs that can help with the issues in question, so the choice comes down to more subtle 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 →

Serene Stomach (Hawthorn Mint Tummy Tea)

We love our standard Tummy Tea.  It has gotten me through many years of “being allergic to Western Civilization,” and has given both of us solace through everything from stomach flu to food poisoning. However, turmeric is a problem for us.  I love the strange orange root that dyes EVERYTHING Continue Reading →
