Pomade, Beard and Lip Balm

We have been getting a lot of requests for a Pomade, requests for Beard Balm, and a few guys are still on the fence about Lip Balm.  We answered the call for all three in our new product we are calling Triple Threat.
As with all our products, we came up with a unique combination of oils and essential oils and thoroughly tested them to make sure they work properly.  Triple Threat has just the right combination of oils and beeswax to style your hair, condition your beard, and yes keep your lips moist and healthy.

Earl Grey with Hibiscus and Stevia

Today’s tea is our organic Earl Grey with a little Hibiscus flower and Stevia leaves.  This blend is not only delicious but Earl Grey has been shown to help fight anxiety and depression while Hibiscus helps with blood pressure, cholesterol, and is a great booster for your immune and digestive system.
As always we love sweetening our tea with just a little Stevia leaf, not extract, so you get the benefit of adding a little sugar without the calories.

Later today we will be getting another shipment which will have Nilgiri and Kukicha Twig teas.  We will also be getting in some other herbs to help you make your own unique and healthy blends.

Roses in bulk vessel

We Made Rose Hydrosol Today

Today we got out the still and made a batch of rose hydrosol using some of our dried Egyptian rose buds and petals.  Rose hydrosol has many uses including body sprays, air fresheners, cooking, and cocktails.

A lot of over the counter rose waters are highly diluted rose hydrosol but ours is right out of the still which makes it much more potent and allows you to dilute it to your liking.

We also have Lavender, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Frankincense hydrosols that will be on our shelves this week.  We also encourage you to bring your own container to fill up or we have some on hand as well.

Chai Tea Friday and New Salt Scrubs

Happy Friday, we hope you are getting ready for a fantastic weekend!
Today we have 5 grams of our Chai tea blend with 1 gram of stevia leaf and mandarin peel which has made an 8 cup pot for 30 cents plus the mandarin, which doubled as an after breakfast snack.

Also, we have our newly reformulated salt scrubs in stock.  As you may recall we made the decision to stop using Dead Sea salt as that resource is not being treated properly.  Our new formula uses Pacific Sea Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt, and Epsom salt.  This combination affords plenty of minerals and nutrients and all are sustainably sourced from a facility right here in Washington state.

English Breakfast Tea and Our Weekly Infusion

Happy Monday!
We made English Breakfast Tea which is one of the most popular tea blends.  The one we carry is medium bodied and a great way to start your day.

Our infusion this week is made with Chamomile, Echinacea, Nettle leaf, and Stevia.  Nettle leaf is a good digestive aid while Echinacea is one of the better-known blood purifiers and Chamomile is a good calming herb as well as a fever reducer.

A Fun Tea Blend for Saturday

Continuing with our blending trend we combined Lemongrass, Hibiscus, Galangal, Bancha, and Keemun Congou teas for our tea of the day.

We have never tried this combination before but are looking forward to tasting it when it is finished.  It should have a nice rich and malty flavor from the Keemun and Bancha teas with a hint of citrus and a light ginger like tang from the galangal.

We really hope that you are encouraged to try new things with your tea and make it a fresh cup every day.

Mandarin Stevia Chai Tea

Mandarin, Stevia, and Chai Tea Today

Keeping with our Chai Tea Friday theme we decided to mix it up a little bit and added some fresh mandarin peel and stevia leaf to our chai tea blend.
We have been amazed by the flavor of our chai tea blend and are looking forward to tasting how the mandarin enhances it with its vibrant citrus fruitiness.

If you have had stevia leaf extract and found it too sweet you will be pleased that using the leaf itself lends its sweetness to your tea but is not as overpowering as the extract.  We have used this a few times with other teas and our herbal infusions and it has become our favorite replacement for sugar and other sweeteners for brewed beverages.
