First Taste of Home (Organic Chocolate Blueberry Tea)

This entry is part 14 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

‘First Taste of Home’ was born out of a combination of annoyance and my sometimes oddly applied sense of responsibility. In this particular case, it wasn’t annoyance at a label, or annoyance at an ingredients list – it was due to one of our ingredients having changed texture. I’d received Continue Reading →

Orphans & Models (Persistent Sale Page)

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

As we’ve mentioned a few times, once we’ve created a new tea, we are left with the product photo batches and samples – with little use for them here.  This is also happening to older teas as we update our photos and posts. For the samples of Simply Tasty Teas, Continue Reading →

Wilde’s Wassail (Earl Grey Cranberry Spiced Tea)

Back in late December, Mister Tea and I were having a Doctor Who day with a couple friends. I was having a day where I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the current array of teas, as far as what was wanted and what seemed right. I’d grudgingly allowed myself to run Continue Reading →

Elvenguard (Organic Rosemary Earl Grey)

Elvenguard began as a salute to two of our friends and their relationship. Tea-Ra and Spoonie Doolittle started as voices heard on Twitter, and became treasured friends. When their anniversary came up, I was saddened that we hadn’t known them when their relationship began.  I have developed a habit of Continue Reading →

Even Dreams Must Sleep (Organic Herbal Tea for Sleep)

A few weeks back I was settling for my standard attempt at sleep. We’d done most of our nightly rituals, and I was in a pretty standard state for me – fairly solid bodily exhaustion, with brain whirring on about everything from plans for apocalypse options to tea flavours to Continue Reading →

The Shapes of Clouds (Organic Black Tea with Lemon Balm)

There were many things that came out of the Doom Flu that stole my January and sent me into a catch-up scramble that I haven’t finished with yet. The Shapes of Clouds was one of them. Flus are interesting, and so are the various forms of delirium one can experience Continue Reading →

Accio Spoons (Organic Herbal Tea for Muscle Relaxation)

Accio Spoons was the product of the collision of a few things. The first was a ridiculously bad flu that knocked me out for most of January. The second was the fact that end of year stock clearing had left us in a bad place as far as access to Continue Reading →

Sanctuary (Organic Lemon Balm, Barley, Hawthorn Berry Tisane)

One of the things that Mister Tea and I have decided to attempt to do is make it so that any flavour set we create that is caffeinated will have a companion tea that is either herbal or actually made with decaffeinated tea. Amusingly, this was actually a decision my Continue Reading →

Solace (Organic Roasted Kukicha, Hawthorn Berries, Lemon Balm)

Solace, and its companion tea – Sanctuary – were born out of a particularly nasty flu that was one of the gifts the holiday season of 2018 gave to me. We’d been out of most of our useful for sick and pain teas when it began, and as I do Continue Reading →

Licorice Throat Soother (Organic Herbal Tea for Sore Throats)

Licorice Throat Soother was blended because a friend saw our Cinnamon Throat Soother and reacted with dismay that it lacked licorice. Due to some complications regarding licorice’s interactions with diabetes, as well as some of the other common first world chronic health issues, I’d mostly avoided using it. Strengthening that Continue Reading →
