Embers (Organic Russian Caravan Vanilla Chai)

‘Embers’ was a first for me. Not our first chai, we’ve created quite a few of those, due to my semi-fixation on the spice set involved. This was, however, the first time Mister Tea had actively sought a chai for himself. It began, as many of our teas do, with Continue Reading →

Helga’s Loyalty (Organic Barley, Hawthorn, Calendula, Apple, Cinnamon Tisane)

This entry is part 2 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

We knew from the creation of ‘Beauxbaton’s Blend’ that we eventually wanted to have teas for each of the Hogwarts houses – and for Durmstrang – but it took us ages to get around to it. The idea had been discussed, in a general sort of way, and I had Continue Reading →

The Norn Compass (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Black Tea)

This entry is part 9 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

This tea was created to celebrate the wedding of a dear friend.  If you follow our teas, or our blog posts, she (and her apocalyptically cute wee one and one of her gigantic dogs) have shown up from time to time. When she and her partner decided that they were Continue Reading →

AnTeaInfection Plus (Organic Anti-bacterial, Anti-viral Herbal Tea with extras)

‘AnTeaInfection’ has been one of my go-to teas for illness and infection for quite a long time. However, sometimes it needs to be paired with other teas to properly fight whatever sickness is currently making life more difficult. Sometimes remembering all the teas I should be drinking and then managing Continue Reading →

Snickerdoodle Joe (Organic Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee)

One of the benefits/drawbacks to using a Keurig for our coffee drinking is that sometimes the flavour from a cup of coffee will carry over just a smidge into the next cup. Due to Mister Tea’s habit of alternating his Malabar and his Paris, we came to the conclusion that Continue Reading →

Lady LiberTea (Organic Elderberry Cinnamon Earl Grey)

The taste of this tea was sparked by an accident, of sorts. Our personal tea making supplies sometimes get short shrift when we’ve had a busy day or are really tired or…  We always thoroughly rinse them, but they do not always get dumped into hot soapy water and scrubbed. Continue Reading →

Miracle Max’s Chocolate Elixir (Organic Chocolate Turmeric Anti-Inflammatory Tea)

I have wanted to create a tea that could be called a ‘tasty tea’ with turmeric in it for quite some time. Partly because I love turmeric, and partly because I know there are people out there who seek it as a component of tea.  Making one that was approached Continue Reading →

Red Son Chai (Organic Rooibos Chai)

This was a tea that had been waiting to happen for quite a while.  Basically since we started working with Rooibos as a foundational ingredient. Given my love of chai, I’m pretty sure my plan is to eventually have a chai for each type of tea that we make, along Continue Reading →

Moctezuma’s Mocha (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Chili Coffee)

‘Moctezuma’s Mocha’ was a natural outgrowth of living in a place where chocolate and chili are considered a completely normal combination, and having a mad blending day where we created a ridiculous amount of new coffees. It took me a while to warm to the concept of chili with chocolate, Continue Reading →

Taste of Tenochtitlan (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Coffee)

When we are making things, often a bunch of ideas in a similar theme, either taste or connection pile up.  Other times they just string together one after another, things we feel must be made. ‘Taste of Tenochtitlan’ was one of a series of coffees made on a madcap Blend Continue Reading →
