Yay! Some Autumn Teas!

In case you missed it, September’s newsletter went out last week (which you can find here and sign up if you like!). And in it, I revealed three new teas for the cooler weather that is (hopefully) coming!

Inspired by cool evenings at the fair and the sweetest treats, a blend of black tea, almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, pecans, and peanuts. But that’s not all, they’re covered in a light and decadent dusting of sweetest maple sugar.

You can find Maple Roasted Nuts here.

Beware the Evil Queen’s apples, lest you fall prey to their ill effects, such as wanting more tea!

A fantastic tea that tastes just like apple crisp. Honeybush tea provides a warm, fruity base for a simple blend of apples, cinnamon, and oats, mixed with a goodly amount of brown sugar, of course!

Poison Apple Crisp tea is to be found here.

You must hurry before the carriage turns back into a tiny pumpkin, so come on and sip awhile until the bell tolls the midnight hour!

A delicious pumpkin spiced chai, you’ll start with a base of a deep and dark black tea, then nutmeg, ginger, clove, and cinnamon will warm you inside and out. Finishes with a delightfully familiar creamy dollop bringing out that pumpkin flavour, whilst apples and pumpkin seeds remind you of the harvest season.

This delightful Pumpkin Carriage tea can be found here.

 

I hope you enjoy having a gander at the new delicious teas! I know I’m enjoying drinking them (the best part about being a tea-maker!).

Now Revealing The Secret Project!!

I have been waiting for quite some time to get this project all done, but you know how it is when you do a bigger project, and in my case, the teas had to be JUST RIGHT! I’ve been mentioning working on it here and there over on my Facebook page, so I know there wasn’t much anticipation here on the blog, but yay!!! It’s done! And now for the big reveal!!!

*drumroll*

Hogwarts House Blends

A tea for each house, whichever you’ve been sorted into! You can purchase them individually, or all together to save a few bucks!
This would definitely make a perfectly nerdy gift for your favourite Potterhead!

Each tea is a specially blended dessert tea, so lots of yumminess to find here!

Rooibos and honeybush provide a fruity, earthy base for spiced root beer to delight your tongue. A sweet treat as you sit in front of the Gryffindor common room’s fires before going off to do something you perhaps shouldn’t be doing.

Slytherin House Blend
SLYTHERIN
Black tea provides a lovely malty and sweet base for pistachios, cherries and lemongrass. A delicious treat for pistachio pudding lovers, and prestigious witches and wizards alike!

Hufflepuff House Blend
HUFFLEPUFF
Three citrus fruits flavour delicious, spongy cake with a delectable, buttery icing.

Freyja Recipe Change

Freyja.jpg

Hey guys! As I mentioned, there will be some recipe changes, part of this is because of where I get my supplies, and the other part is making sure that my teas (especially older blends like Freyja) stay the most delicious they can possibly can!

So what’s changed in the Freyja blend? Peaches have replaced the nectarines (peach was the original plan anyhow), and now there is flavour added to enhance the orange and peach notes.

If I haven’t mentioned it before here, when you add fruits to tea, you really aren’t going to get much flavour from the dried fruit. The only way you could do this naturally is if you had, for example, peach and orange juice to add to the tea. That’s why in most teas (especially the fruity ones), you’ll see that flavour is added.

Anywho! Stay tuned for some more recipe updates, whether it is reblending or discontinuing (sad, I know, but I can’t keep in the shop what doesn’t sell unfortunately, but it does help me focus on what you guys do want to have!).

I hope your Beltaine has been magnificent and full of all the fertility of the season in whichever way you need it!

Hermes Tea

Hermes

Simply delicious strawberries drizzled with cinnamon-scented honey, peppered with pomegranate pips.

This is a fantastic tea for warmer weather, in fact, it would make a delicious iced tea! Just remember you need 1.5 times the amount to get a potent enough iced tea (so where it would take 1 tsp for one cup of water if you were having warm tea, for iced tea, you need 1.5 tsp per cup of water).

Fruity honeybush tea provides a lovely base for strawberries, hibiscus adds a fantastic tart flavour, further enhancing the strawberries and hint of pomegranate. Saffron pops and helps add to the lovely orange colour of the brewed tea, and cinnamon adds quite a lovely, sweet warmth to the palate. Honey adds the final touch to this tea that’s sure to get you going out the door onto your next adventure.

Offer it to Hermes by itself, or share a cup with Him!
And as always, you can most definitely drink to simply enjoy!

You can find Hermes’ tea here, and other devotional teas here.

Lemon Cakes Tea

Lemon Cakes

Enjoy Sansa’s favourite dessert in this lovely cup of green tea, filled to the brim with buttery lemon cakes.

Green tea blended with lemon pieces, calendula and essence of buttery cake. Enjoy on tense afternoons when you don’t know who to trustย and are perhaps plotting revenge on your captors.

Find Sansa’s Lemon Cakes here, and find other story time teas here.

Bananas Are Good Tea

Bananas Are Good

A hearty black tea with bananas and pineapples. Calendula petals reminiscent of banana peel, and cornflowers to make sure you know you’re going on an adventure in the T.A.R.D.I.S. with your favourite Doctor.

A perfect cup to sit down and binge-watch your favourite seasons!

Thanks to Beth for commissioning this tea, because it is quite complex and tasty!

Step out onto the battlefield with the Morrigan at your side.

Sweet cherries fill your nose as the earth is crushed beneath your feet, deep and green with juniper berries, warmed by fragrant white pepper. At the end of the sip, a mixture of rose-laced mead lingers.
