Thyroid Stabilizer was blended because of a series of conversations with a lady who has a thyroid that see-saws. Depending on the day, how her medications are working or interacting, she deals with both sides (hypo and hyper) of thyroid issues. So we set out to blend a tea that would help to balance the thyroid and generally improve thyroid health.
The tea is a little earthy, a little spicey, and a bit of seaweed. It is one of our more savory teas, but the turmeric balances it in a fairly pleasant way.
Troi's Temptation is a cocoa powder leaning more towards the mid-range. Rich and sweet, and still intensely chocolate.
Our journey with tea making taught us that choosing organic is more important than we had fully realized prior. We've also enjoyed knowing exactly what goes into what we drink. Branching out into cocoas seemed a natural progression of our work so far.
Twixt & Tween: NighTea NIght was created because there are times when a tea that was blended for adults isn't the right option for anyone who is not actually an adult.
We had started with our Baby&Me: NighTea Night so we would have a nursing and young child safe insomnia tea. After a couple of requests came in, I realized that we could make a stronger version for 'Tweens' to finish bridging the gap.
Twixt & Tween: NighTea Night tastes primarily of Mint.
Type O was inspired by a random ranging conversation between myself, Mister Tea, and one of the friends we often inflict new teas on for testing. Mister Tea mentioned wondering if we could make a Chocolate Hibiscus tea.
Turned out the answer was a resounding yes. This tea brews a vibrant dark red, and the blend of the flavours of the cacao nibs and the hibiscus is pretty spectacular.
In part because it seemed like it would mix really well with vodka and cream, and in part because of the colour, we decided to finally salute the vampire fandoms with a tea. This may not be specifically Whedonverse or the Lost Boys or Supernatural or... but the tea would work perfectly in a cobalt glass goblet.
Uhura's Frequency was blended because of the combination of two loves - chai spicing and chocolate. As with all our chais, we took care to balance the spices specifically for the taste of the extra element.
Of course, once we had a chocolate chai, we knew we had to have a vanilla chai as well. Given our penchant for naming our tasty teas in a geeky way, we decided to salute two of the women from the original Star Trek.
Wedding Jitters was born out of a custom request for a tea that would taste like the tea version of vanilla almond cake, and have a gentle assistance with anxiety.
We were very happy with being asked to create a wedding tea. There is something pretty amazing about being asked to add something to a day that special and personal.
The idea for how to create the taste she wanted came pretty swiftly, but the resultant blend was staggeringly good.
Mister Tea thinks this is the tastiest of our Simply Tasty teas, and likely to appeal to a broad range of people, and the reactions of our mini-test group leads me to believe he is correct.
Well-Liver Twist came about because a gent Mister Tea shared classes with had a relatively bad accident, and ended up with liver issues from medication side effects and infections from his time in the hospital. As he had heard Mister Tea rant about what we do, he asked if we had anything that would help.
Some research and a bit of taste blending, and within a few days we had two teas for him. One was Well-Liver Twist, to help heal and clean his liver, and Bone Binder to help with the initial injuries from the accident.
