Lovely Day (Organic Lemon Balm and Lavender Tea)

‘Lovely Day’ was inspired by a conversation with one of our ‘Tea of the Month Club’ members.  When we come close to the last month of tea, I always offer them the option of choosing their final tea. In this particular case, that offer turned into a conversation regarding the Continue Reading →

Cratakardia (Organic Lemon Raspberry Herbal Tea)

‘Cratakardia’ came out of the fact that there’s been quite a bit of stress in our lives of late.  Some of it is direct and personal, and some of it falls into the “due to existential dread” category. The exact reasons why aren’t germane to the creation of this tea, Continue Reading →

Falkor’s Flight (Organic Blend of Green Kukicha, Jasmine, and Cherry)

‘Falkor’s Flight’ was created mostly because I wanted to see if I could. I’d mentioned on Twitter that I needed to slow down on the creation of new teas, because there are only so many that should be in process at any given time.  Not an uncommon thing to hear Continue Reading →

SkeleTea (Organic Herbal Tea for Bone Health)

Taliesin’s Tonic (Organic Lemon Cinnamon Green Tea)

A bit back I had a plan for the day. I was going to settle in and polish a couple of blog posts, and record the audio for at least one. Tea seemed quite necessary to this process. Unfortunately, as sometimes happens, I went to look at our tea selection Continue Reading →

St. John’s Verity (Organic Lapsang and Earl Grey)

As I’ve stated many times before, our ideas for tea blends come from a lot of different places. One of the more regular culprits is our tea survey.  Practically every time it gets filled out, I end up with at least one more idea for a tasty hot beverage. On Continue Reading →

No Sleep ’til ‘Burque! (Organic Raspberry Lavender Herbal Tea)

The internet can be a truly wonderful place. One of the things I am fairly regularly grateful for is the people that it has enabled me to meet. Some truly brilliant friendships have been born there.

Mama Girl’s Memory (Organic Jasmine Elderberry Rose Herbal Tea)

This entry is part 11 of 11 in the series ChariTeas
