Achievement Unlocked: Still Standing (Organic Non-Drowsy Pain Tea)

One of the things that Mister Tea and I have had to weather in our relationship is the harsh and brutal reality of the word ‘degenerative.’ When we first met I was relatively capable physically.  We used to take long rambling walks around the city, discovering new things, perusing thrift Continue Reading →

Clever Girl (Organic Black Tea with Currants)

It doesn’t take much to provoke a tea from us. Especially if the thing you toss into my brain is a thing that has been in the idea file for ages, and you express a specific desire to see that tea. The first glimmers of what became Clever Girl landed Continue Reading →

Chronic Illness Part 2: The Daily Grind of Pain

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Heavy Content

Note:  This post is about chronic pain from my perspective and written through my experience with it.  I know that this will not cover everyone’s experience.  Additionally, there should definitely be content warnings.  Chronic life involves everything from PTSD to depression to tremendous anxiety to… Chronic pain isn’t a single Continue Reading →

Return to Dexterity (Organic Tea for Carpal Tunnel and Arthritis)

The idea for ‘Return to Dexterity’ was inspired by Mister Tea’s uncle having a particularly severe bout of something along the lines of carpal tunnel syndrome.  It seemed like the sort of problem we should have a tea for, as there are many ways in which soft tissue can get Continue Reading →

Due to the way we deal with samples and testing, at the end of each year I almost always have partial batches of tea that need to be dealt with. Mister Tea and I consume a lot of tea, and the friends who enter our domicile do help with the Continue Reading →

Adventures in Cooking: Baked Stuffed Apples

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Adventures in Cooking

I really enjoy sharing good food with people. It is very similar to my love of creating and sharing good tea with people. I don’t have the time or spoons to properly cook as often as I would like to, but I manage from time to time. This past weekend Continue Reading →

Coyote’s Caravan (Organic Russian Caravan Tea)

‘Coyote’s Caravan’ was an attempt to fix a problem we’ve had for several years. The only organic Russian Caravan tea we had access to is sometimes problematic to keep in stock.  The supplier is always very apologetic when they are out and we have to wait, and they always try Continue Reading →

Fiaren Caravan (Organic Blend of Lapsang, Lime, and Rose)

Fiaren Caravan was inspired by a micro fiction. At the point it was blended, it held position as “potentially oddest point of inspiration for a Desert Sage Natural Tea.” It has since been displaced by a tea inspired by one of those odd meme name quiz things…  but I digress. Continue Reading →

Dark Metamorphosis (Organic Lapsang with Licorice and Lime)

This entry is part 9 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

‘Dark Metamorphosis’ began as an intrusive tea idea that insisted on being made before I made the thing I had originally wanted to blend.  (The worst part being that I haven’t actually gone back to make the original tea idea as yet.) The conversation that inspired ‘Lovely Day’ had also Continue Reading →
