Achievement Unlocked: Still Standing was created because of a need for a tea that helped with pain management, but did not provoke drowsiness. The taste is a smoky black tea with hints of rose and something pleasantly earthier and greener.
Our first nerve pain tea was born out of my need for pain management combined with my history of bad luck with pharmaceutical medications. It seemed that you could not get pain relief without getting fuzzy-headed or too sleepy to actually manage to do anything. On top of that, I'm allergic to a lot of the fillers used. The idea had existed for quite some time, but interacting with a number of women with fibromyaljia made me get around to blending our Something for the Pain.
Something for the Pain was a good start, but depending on how hard you work yourself, it can cause a bit of tiredness. A bit of pain relief allows your body to realize just how much it needs sleep.
Achievement Unlocked: Still Standing was created to be a pain relief tea for the days when you have to maintain full functionality. It should not be used constantly, but it does wonders when really needed. It helps that it is also one of our tastiest medicinals.

The After the Cut teas were blended because one of the authors of a couple of my research books suggested that since humans get hormonal support when things go wrong or change, shouldn't our pets get the same respect? I decided I agreed with him, and blended our After the Cut teas to offer options for both male and female dogs and cats.
Allerg-Ease was blended to ease the symptoms of allergies, and with regular use, gentle the strength of your response to allergens. The taste is a sweetly floral lemongrass.
The idea for the tea came from watching my partner deal with allergy medications, both pharmaceutical and some holistic and herbal preparations. It seemed they all had one primary thing in common - they tasted vile. So I decided to create a tea that would help with allergies that actually tasted good.

Anna's AnTeaInfection combines Goldenseal, Echinacea, Ginger Root, Marjoram, and Eleuthro to create a tea that acts as an anti-viral, an antibacterial, and an anti-fungal. It also acts as an immune system booster. It tastes primarily like the Ginger and Marjoram, with a background of "herbal" that manages to avoid being strongly Echinacea and Goldenseal.
This tea came about because a friend was dealing with a very specific and rather nasty infection. After the bug was identified, I researched, and through that research, discovered that there was an herb that had performed well in trials against antiobiotic resistant strains of the bug in question (Pseudomonas.) Anna's AnTeaInfection was blended to center around that herb (Marjoram), and then to still act as both an assist to the immune system and a good "fighting thing that make you sick" tea.
AnTeaInfection was created to give an option other than antiobiotics for illness. It is an anti-bacterial tea that has some anti-viral and anti-fungal action as well. It tastes of Sage and other non-bitter green herbs.
Antibiotics have steadily become more and more of a pet peeve of mine. Both through over-prescribing and through unfinished courses getting dumped into the garbage, they are getting out into the world in amounts that are helping to slowly make basic illnesses less basic and more dangerous. I set a goal early on for developing options in herbal tea form for most basic illnesses so that we could have a first echelon of defense that didn't require pharmaceutical medications.
Aphrodite's Ambrosia is a Chocolate Rose tea with a hint of vanilla and earthy spice blended to enhance the female libido.
This tea came out of a custom request for a tea, and one that we were quite glad to see. There are some medications and some stages of life that dull mental and physical capacity to have any interest in physical intimacy. Aphrodite's Ambrosia was created to give that capacity back. It was designed for women, but would likely help men as well.
Aslan's Breath was blended after a series of request for a tea that would help with dealing with kidney stones and gallstones.
'Autumn Morning's Peace' is the third and last of the teas we created to attempt to help deal with ulcerative colitis.
This one was created specifically to help deal with chronic diarrhea and the pain associated with it.
Interestingly, it should be useful under a variety of circumstances, well beyond the condition that spawned the creation of it.
Baby & Me: Aftermath was blended to deal with many of the issues that occur post-pregnancy, whether it be one you managed to carry to term, or one that ended too soon. Miscarriage is something I am well familiar with, and I have watched friends deal with the hormones and physical issues after giving birth.
Afternath will help with what a friend calls "mommy mush brain," as well as with the depression that comes with either bearing or losing a child. It will also help the uterus to heal. It will also help with insomnia.
The taste is earthier and greener, with the Rosemary tying it together.
