Cowabunga (Organic Kukicha Gunpowder Orange Turmeric Tea)

The TMNT turtle teas were a fun project. We wanted to start with a foundation of ‘Splinter’s Brew’ and then add things in the right colour ranges that would also taste good. For Michaelangelo’s tea, our options were slightly limited.  Calendula tends to be more yellow than orange, and I Continue Reading →

Dragon’s Enlightenment (Organic Jasmine Oolong Tea)

The oolong teas we have created lately are a bit more work-a-day than many of our teas. When I first began working with tea, it was primarily about the herbs, putting all the study I’d done into play as helpful tisanes for health and well-being. When we first began creating Continue Reading →

No Place Like Home (Organic Rosehip Vanilla Lemon Rooibos)

This entry is part 7 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

We’ve mentioned our new favorite pet rescue, Positive Paws Rescue Transport, a few times over the past year. They have helped us to make relatively grand strides in dealing with Dulce’s separation anxiety, as well as helping her to remember how to make friends with other dogs.  (She wasn’t aggressive, Continue Reading →

Din’s Vigor (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Rooibos)

This entry is part 5 of 7 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

A little bit back I was asked to create a custom tea.  I was sent a sample of a favored tea that had been discontinued, in order to create a Desert Sage Natural version of the flavour set. It required creating a blend of three teas to start.  Rooibos, Mate, Continue Reading →

Triforce Tea (Organic Roasted Mate, Rooibos, and Black Tea)

This entry is part 1 of 7 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

Sometimes when we are asked to create a custom tea, there’s an odd first step that has to be taken.  Especially when we are asked to recreate a favourite tea that has been discontinued. As a general rule, we are rather staggered by the sheer number of ingredients some of 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 →

Chaimonade (Lemon Chai Tea)

‘Chaimonade’ was not a tea I specifically set out to make. I was working on blending a couple of other teas – an Earl Grey with more citrus, and an orange hibisus-y thing and…  bits and pieces of them came together in my head and decided I needed to make 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 →

Leaf on the Wind (Organic Jasmine White Tea)

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Firefly/Serenity Beverages

  ‘Leaf on the Wind’ came out of a combination of two things – one was a search for a tasty tea a friend with thyroid issues could drink, and the other was a desire to experiment with white tea. It seemed fitting to create a Jasmine White Tea, as Continue Reading →

Browncoat’s Desperation (Organic Chocolate Chicory Tea)

‘Browncoat’s Desperation’ is one of a very few of our teas that started as a name, and the taste conceptualization followed later. We’d been discussing the ‘Battle of Serenity Valley,’ which branched out into talking about war in a more general sense.  Both of us like alternate history, as well Continue Reading →
