Bonnie's Blessing is a tea that tastes of flowers and lemon that was designed to assist with insomnia and anxieety.
This tea is one of our ChariTeas, and was created to commemorate a dear friend and family member that Mister Tea and I lost in February of 2015. Every sale of this insomnia tea will generate a donation to www.mitoaction.org
My cousin, Bonnie, had been battling mitochondrial disease for over a decade, and her courage and grace in that battle did a lot to teach me about the ways I should face my own issues with chronic illness and pain.

I Will Survive starts with Keemun Black tea, and then adds Rose and Calendula for lovely floral accents, and Vanilla to bind it all together.
I Will Survive is the first of our ChariTeas. $5 of every sale will be donated to RAINN. (www.rainn.org - The Rape and Abuse Action network)
We were contacted for a donation for a clothing swap. In her initial pitch, the woman mentioned that she donated proceeds from the swaps to RAINN, and that the extra clothing from the swap went to a local women's shelter.
For a variety of reasons, our interest was immediately piqued.
Mister Tea and I discussed it, and we moved fairly swiftly from, "Yes, let's donate something!" to "Let's make a tea specific to this charity, and cause it to create donations even after this event."

'Jerry Cordial' was born out of a couple of different concepts.
The first is that cherry cordials are something of a tradition in Mister Tea's family.
The second is that we love our 'ChariTea' concept, and love the idea of being able to make a tea for someone and have it assist with a worthy cause. (A sort of mutual gift from the buyer and from us.
After a certain amount of experience and practice with blending dessert teas and with working with cacao nibs, we decided that we could make a cherry cordial inspired tea. Mister Tea discussed it with he-who-enjoys-cherry-cordials, and a charity was chosen.
Each purchase of 'Jerry Cordial' will secure a donation to the Roadrunner Food Bank, a local charity with a really good track record.
