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 Tea and I in regards to medicine – both for himself and for his wife. That place where you do not have the financial resources to do everything that is needed, and have to seek assistance outside the boundaries of modern western medicine.
His wife was facing a particularly nasty illness, and he was worried about being able to be strong enough for her, emotionally.
The depth of the love and concern he had for her was easy to see, and beautiful as well.
We talked at length about his worries, and about his preferred tastes, so that I could choose the right array of herbs to suit both sets of needs.
Because of the savoury nature of most of the herbs involved, it took me a bit longer than usual to be truly happy with the balance of this blend. However, the gent it was blended for was quite happy with it – and it gave him the ability to ease down a bit, within his personal cyclone of stress.
I take a special joy in knowing that one of our custom blends did what was needed.

** I am not a doctor. The FDA (along with other governmental agencies) has not recognized any of this as fact. We do draw on science as well as tradition, but the path from research proving efficacy to formalized treatment is a long and complicated one. (Especially since plants can’t really be patented.) None of the information contained in these pages is intended to diagnose, treat, or cure disease from a medical standpoint.
***I am not a psychologist or psychiatrist. No mood tea that I formulate is directly intended to replace any psychiatric medication. If you are taking any form of psychiatric medication, you should consult both me and your doctor before drinking one of our SereniTeas. The side effects and contraindications for practically all psychiatric meds are long and complicated, and I really prefer to look into them before suggesting a tea.
