Cannabis Inspired Tea with Green Moon Apothecary

Ostara Box by Green Moon Apothecary

Hello witches, and happy March!

When asked by fellow Canadians Vanessa and Amanda of Green Moon Apothecary to work with them on their Ostara box, I was thrilled! They’re Torontonians who create Sabbat boxes with wonderful witchy items with a cannabis bend. There’ve been candles, crystal pipes, soap, just fantastic items that are great for self-care, and upping the magick in cannabis use.

I was super excited to hear from them, yet, not only did they want to include my Ostara tea, but create a brand new Green Moon tea that was inspired by the flavours (terpenes) found in cannabis!

I began with an article they wrote about terpenes in cannabis, then off to other research around the internet, because I just can’t stop there! I was left to my own devices, and decided on an Iron Goddess oolong for the base of this tea. 

I love Iron Goddess oolong, it’s got this lovely flavour that’s green/grassy, yet not bitter, and has this lovely, subtle floral and citrus magick happening.

To pair with the citrus especially, I decided to add lemongrass. A little hint of spearmint, and a good helping of mango flavour, and voila! This blend is likely going to be in heavy rotation over the summer (I think it would work well iced with a bit of lemon juice), and when I use cannabis. It’s obviously a great way to make sure you don’t get too dried out when you consume 😉 

If you do happen to get one of these Ostara boxes, I hope you see why I’m excited about the Green Moon tea! And you’ll be one of the lucky few who get to enjoy it as it isn’t up in my shop

I think the tea would pair wonderfully with an Ostara, or spring-themed guided meditation whilst high. There are a plethora of meditations around the internet, and if you don’t want to have to do much work, you’ll find them on Youtube. It’s never a bad idea to create a special meditation that really focuses on some of the things that will be very important to you during the Ostara season.

I hope no matter how you spend Ostara, you enjoy yourself, and hopefully you’ll also enjoy some bright sunshine!

Luna et Stellae

Tonight is the release of my Luna et Stellae box!

It’s a collection that has been inspired by the moon and stars (as the title suggests 😉 ) , which have always been such a great source of wonder and almost a touchstone in my life. It’s something I always return to, gazing up into the depths of the night sky.

In the box, is a tin of Luna et Stellae tea. It’s a blend of green and oolong teas, with hibiscus, jasmine, and cornflower. The flavour notes are a heady swirl of jasmine, strawberry, and caramel. Each tin contains enough tea for 60 servings, and this tea won’t appear again in the shop unless I release another limited run.

Then is the stunning stars and moons windchime made of white onyx. I absolutely adore the one I have hanging up in my window, the tinkling would truly make for a wonderful soundtrack to looking up at the stars.

For each box, I painted a unique moon and stars piece. A silver moon that contains a nebula, golden stars surround it upon a textured, deep blue background.

And finally is my current favourite tea infuser. It’s a mesh basket that can hold a serious amount of tea. I wouldn’t be surprised if it worked quite well in most teapots.


I’m so excited to be putting something new together in the shop, and I’m already planning the next box. I just love the ability to dream up a vision/feeling of something, and have it come to life with curated items. It’s magick, truly! And it’s even more magickal that I can share that with others as well!

Zodiac Tea Sale!

So since I want to create more space to begin the Yuletide stockpile of tea, I decided to throw a (very rare) sale on my Zodiac teas! There are between 10-20 bags of each sign, depending on the sign, and they’re all 20% off! You can take a gander here.

Next month, I’ll be making some big orders of ingredients and begin making the teas that sell like hotcakes during the holidays (I’ll give you one guess as to which ones those may be!). It will ease me into the busy season, but also ease the work when it gets really hectic in November & December. I can already tell my future self is going to be very happy that I began making lots of teas early!

In other news, it’s been a busy summer! Lots of visiting people, lots of fun adventures canoeing and tubing on the river nearby. Of course I’ve gone out to the lake a few times, though the water cooled down after a rain last week, I was sad that I couldn’t really swim in it! Oh well, it will level out and I would like to bring myself to the beach if not every week, then every other week. I love Kincardine so, and I loooove lake Huron just as much. I feel so very much like myself in the water ❤

HOUSE STARK
A no-nonsense tea for a straightforward Stark. A deeply bold, and strong blend of black teas, the smaller leaves allowing for a more intense infusion of caffeine. This is the tea to fuel you when the hard work needs doing.

HOUSE TARGARYEN
Lime curd tart topped with luscious blackberries. A refined and delicious blend of some of the best Westeros fields and orchards had to offer the Targaryen family before their exile not long ago.

HOUSE LANNISTER
A mulled wine-like tea to keep your wits about you as you plot your next grab for power. Having access to all the best spices, what else would a Lannister do with them but add them to a wine? Green tea, lemongrass, rosehips, cloves, and swirling with calendula petals. Sweet and complex.

Turkish Delight Tea

Turkish Delight

A delectable blend sure to delight!

Not to worry, though inspired by the evil White Queen of Narnia’s deceptively sweet treats, my Turkish Delight tea is only filled with good, delicious magics!

Lemon balm provides a mellow, herby and slightly lemony base for lemon pieces, rose petals, coconut and vanilla to dance upon. Not overwhelmingly lemony or rosey, it’s the perfect balance of flavours!

Each bag comes with 20 servings when measured out 1 tsp per cup, sealed in a lovely little stand up pouch that allows for ease of storage and lasting freshness.

So go have a look at this treat of a tea, or check out my other storytime teas!
