This tea was created because a friend had a later-in-life pregnancy, and the aftermath was beyond complicated. Cat's Hopeful H(eal) O(ver) T(ime) was blended to help with as much of what was going wrong as I could manage. It has some hormonal balancing properties, will increase the speed of internal healing, has some astringency to help with the bleeding, a lot of support for general female health, and a bit of pain-killing to round it out.
This tea was blended because cancer is something my partner and I have experience with. Several people that we care about have fought the disease, and watching that fight, it was something I had to create a tea for.
Cellular PuriTea is a Green Tea with hints of Rose and Almond.
This tea gently supports the immune system, the cleansing system, and adds a bit of calming and stress relief. It has direct anti-cancer action through the green tea, the almonds, and the synergistic action of the Burdock Root and Red Clover. However, this tea was designed to be pleasantly drinkable at whatever stage of treatment an individual was in, rather than bringing out the biggest herbal guns.
Cellular PuriTea: Cleansing and Digestive came about because a customer wanted a more targeted anti-cancer tea. A lot of our specific conditions are fairly broad spectrum, to deal with many different iterations of the disease or condition. A family member was dealing with pancreatic cancer, so we blended this tea to bolster the cleansing systems of the body and assist in the fight against cancer.
It is an earthier green tea with hints of rose.
Cinnamon Throat Soother is a Cinnamon Sage tea for soothing sore throats and easing many of the causes for them.
Sore throats are a thing. From over-exertion from having to talk too much to the inevitable result of colds and flu to... They happen a lot. It was one of the first issues we knew we needed to approach, and this was one of our first medicinal teas.
Cognitive Colada was created because Mister Tea and I have watched people dealing with watching a loved one slowly slip away through various forms of senility and dementia. Even seeing it from the outside or from the edges is horrifying, and we wanted to create something to help. It is a tasty pineapple coconut green tea, with medicinal herbs to assist with various aspects of mental functioning.
De-Toxic Avenger is a tea tasting of Lemongrass and Jasmine that was designed to help with detoxification, especially when working through leaving an addiction behind.
The herbs chosen will also help to calm the nerves and level your mood a bit.
Edie's Not Hot was blended due to a custom request.
There was a lovely lady I had been conversing with about various teas, as she had ordered some of our geeky samplers, and she asked if we had a tea for hot flashes.
We did not, as yet. I had done most of the research for it, because it seemed like a tea we should have, but no one had specifically needed it, so it kept getting moved down the to-do list. In the end, Edie's Not Hot was blended to assist with menopause generally, but to focus on hot flashes.
The name for the tea came from her initial review. She commented that now, thankfully, she was not-hot.
Edie's Not Hot tastes of Mint and Sage, with the other herbs adding notes that are hard to describe, but pleasant.
Expecto Coughonum is a lightly sweet lightly lemon herbal tea blended to help with coughing.
There are a number of situations and issues that my partner and I knew we had to create teas for early on. Coughing is one of them.
One of the reasons why herbs are so lovely, is that many of them act differently depending on what you currently need. Or, more accurately, they provide your body with the tools, so it can do what it needs. This tea is a good example of this. If you need mucous loosened so you can cough productively, Expecto Coughonum can help with that. If you just need to stop coughing because your body can't take it anymore, it can help with that. If you need that tickle in the back of your throat to stop so that it will stop making you cough, it can help with that, too.
Fever-B-Gone is a medicinal tea designed to help with fever reduction, and some of the things that cause it. The taste is primarily peppermint.
Fever are one of those things that occur with more frequency than anyone really enjoys or cares to think about. They fell into the category of "we need to make a tea for this."
Amusingly enough, despite that logic, this was still a tea that was not blended until I was actually in the throes of a fairly wretched fever. It occurred to me, as I wandered around wondering if my brain was actually boiling yet, that I should make a tea. I did, it brought my fever down, I checked my notes to make sure I had done it correctly and safely... and Fever-B-Gone was born.
Fighting Chance was created because the mother of a friend was fighting an antiobiotic resistant staph infection. She asked if we had a tea that would help. I dove into my research, and discovered studies from both Germany and Japan that indicated that honeysuckle was an effective treatment for all the currently known strains.
Utilizing the information discovered and a couple of other antiobiotic herbs, we blended this tea.
