The Deanna Variation (Organic Chocolate Earl Grey)

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Star Trek Beverages

The path The Deanna Variation took from original inception to actual tea was a very long and winding one. Earl Grey and Chocolate seems like a fairly obvious combination, and I think it came up during our first year. Some period of time or other after that, I blended a Continue Reading →

Watson’s Wit (Organic Black Tea Blend)

The tale of Watson’s Wit is short and sweet, compared to many. One of the issues Mister Tea and I sometimes face is delays in acquiring some of our ingredients.  The largest culprits are turmeric (which, until recently, could be dastardly difficult to acquire organic) and a couple of the 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 →

St. John’s Verity (Organic Lapsang and Earl Grey)

As I’ve stated many times before, our ideas for tea blends come from a lot of different places. One of the more regular culprits is our tea survey.  Practically every time it gets filled out, I end up with at least one more idea for a tasty hot beverage. On Continue Reading →

Grey’s Secret Garden (Organic Rosehip Vanilla Cornflower Earl Grey)

The concept of this tea has been around for quite a while.  It had been suggested that one of the obvious things that we lacked was a take on a ‘Cream Earl Grey.’ I put it onto the “work these up at some point” list, and it promptly disappeared into Continue Reading →

Beauxbaton’s Blend (Organic Elderberry Vanilla Black Tea)

This entry is part 7 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

‘Beauxbaton’s Blend’ started because a client was mourning a favourite tea. This was early on in our experimentation with tasty teas, so I wasn’t positive that I could do it, but I was more than willing to give it a shot. She sent a sample of the original tea, and Continue Reading →

Earlderberry Grey (Organic Elderberry Earl Grey Tea)

‘Earlderberry Grey’ was created due to a couple of factors.  The first is that Elderberries are so lovely, both in taste and in health benefits that I wanted to have as many options as possible involving them.  No matter your personal preferences, unless it is just hating fruit in beverages, I Continue Reading →

Tea at Pemberley (Lavender Earl Grey)

I love making tea.  This is not something that can really be questioned.  I love the process of creating a new taste that makes people happy.  I find a special sort of joy in still being able to be that strange combination of creative and useful that taking a request Continue Reading →
