Assam, Keemun Congou, Nilgiri Tea

Today’s tea blend features the rich nuttiness of Assam, full bodied sweetness of Keemun Congou, and the floral citrus notes of Nilgiri.  We always want you to feel comfortable making your own blend so it is really fun for us to try some new things to get those creative juices flowing.

If you come into our shop today you will be rewarded with a wonderful combination of Frankincense and Rose hydrosols as well as some lemon essential oil.  Some have asked what you can do with a hydrosol and this is one of the great uses as it will impart much more aroma from your diffuser without being over powering by potentially using too much essential oil.

Assam-Galangal

Assam T.G.F.O.P with Galangal root Tea

Our tea today is Assam T.G.F.O.P. with a little bit of Galangal root.
Assam is a full-bodied tea from India with rich malty notes.  T.G.F.O.P. stands for Tippy, Golden, Flowery, Orange, Pekoe which we love saying because how often do you get to call something Tippy, Golden, and Flowery all in the same sentence?
Galangal is a root closely related to ginger, though it has it’s own very unique flavor and shares similar healing properties.  This is a mild stimulant as well as an anti-inflammatory and is one of the spices that is commonly referenced for fighting cancer.

We also have our weekly infusion which uses Horehound, Hibiscus, Lemon peel, and Stevia.  This is a little bitter, a little sour, and a little sweet but it’s not a cocktail.  We formulated this to help you with that Winter crud that likes to go around so come get a sample to help you fight off the nasties throughout the day.  If you want to brew some at home let us know and we can package up the herbs for you.
