There are a handful of teas that do not have a tremendously detailed backstory. In the beginning, there was a hyper-focus on purpose, especially in the days of making only useful teas that tasted good, rather than teas specifically for taste.
Frankly, at the very beginning, the teas didn’t have interesting names. There was “Cold Tea” and “Sinus Tea” and “Headache Tea” and “Throat Tea” and… other things in that general range.
The biggest category of teas like that was the line that eventually gained the name “SereniTeas.”
They are teas intended to give at least a modicum of assistance with stress and anxiety and the vast array of species of brain weasel that exist.
Mellow Rose was originally blended as part of a de-stress sampler that I sent to a friend.
It became one of the teas I can practically blend in my sleep due to it hitting the right chord with a cherished human from Twitter.
His name across social media is NeolithicSheep.
He has spread the word about this tea, and about my work in general, and has been instrumental in helping Desert Sage Natural to grow and continue – and, more recently, to rebuild.1 Which I mention because he is at the center of the new tale of this tea.
The tale mostly involves a scant handful of madcap months where I blended so much of this tea I had to make specific resupply orders for its ingredients, and its ingredients alone.
There was exhaustion shot through with giddiness, knowing that it was so loved it had sparked such.
The tea is well named. If the flavour profile sounds appealing, this may be the right SereniTea for you.

- He stress tests websites (and tea alchemists) (and writers) with his marketing prowess. And I am grateful for it. Admittedly, the best tales of that prowess are not mine and they involve koalas, not tea.
