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 →

Salazar’s Ambition (Organic Gunpowder/Caravan/Cacao Nibs/Peppermint Tea)

This entry is part 3 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Shortly after creating Beauxbaton’s Blend, we realized we should probably make teas for each of the Hogwarts houses, as well as for Durmstrang. We put the idea into the file, and it sat there for a while. Conversations within the august and patient Tea Naming Group led to some scribbled 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 →

Dragon’s Heart (Organic Chocolate Oolong)

‘Dragon’s Heart’ is the last of the experimental oolongs we created per a customer suggestion. I am starting to feel like we should have a chocolate version of all of foundational teas. The name was easy – the Twitterverse (through a wonderful author I follow) pointed me at a children’s 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 →

Mom’s Mate (Organic Mate Rooibos Black Tea Blend with Spices)

We have a habit of recreating teas that other companies discontinue, as our clientele knows we can find the taste they were missing, though our versions are usually proclaimed as far better than the originals. ‘Mom’s Mate’ started as a small bag filled with tea for us to test, and Continue Reading →

Din’s Vigor (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Rooibos)

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

A little bit back I was asked to create a custom tea.  I was sent a sample of a favored tea that had been discontinued, in order to create a Desert Sage Natural version of the flavour set. It required creating a blend of three teas to start.  Rooibos, Mate, Continue Reading →

Darth Apricot (Organic Chocolate Apricot Tea)

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Star Wars Beverages

‘Darth Apricot’ was born out of the blending of another tea. A few months back, a Twitter conversation about writing snacks led to the creation of ‘Dahvana’s Dream.’  As I was working on that tea, I decided we should also have a strict chocolate apricot tea.  Given that both Mister Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Raven’s Rest (Organic Chocolate and Barley Tea for Stress)

When I created ‘Ravensong,’ the first of the teas made due to the encouragement of friends to turn my skills to a wee bit of self-care, I knew that I would need to make an herbal version. I drink entirely too much caffeine, and one of the ways to start Continue Reading →

Ravensong (Organic Chocolate Keemun Tea with Rosehips and Elderberries)

‘Ravensong’ is one of a pair of teas that were the result of the loving exhortations of a couple of friends of mine. It was pointed out that I spend a lot of time and energy taking care of other people, and helping them as much as I can, but…. Continue Reading →
