Earl Grey tea is one of the most popular teas in the West. This black tea with hints of citrus is a perfect introduction to tea. It is great served hot or cold, and pairs well with food. That's why it is a favorite for afternoon tea and preferred by many tea drinkers throughout the world. 
Earl Grey tea is one of the preferred teas for afternoon tea. It pairs very well with many sweets, such as scones and Madeleine cakes. Earl Grey is also a great tea for brunch pairings.
Earl Grey is a black tea, so it usually has a bold flavor. Unlike orange pekoe (which is a tea grade named for the Dutch royal House of Orange-Nassau rather than the fruit or the color orange), Earl Grey has a citrusy flavor.

All sizes are measured by weight in ounces. You will receive 1oz dried tea leaf. Typically, one ounce will make 10-15 cups of tea, depending on how strong you like it.
*All Contain caffeine, with the exception of Rooibos, which is an herb and not derived from the plant Camellia Sinensis

To Make Earl Grey:
Use about one teaspoon of tea leaves (or one regular-sized teabag) per cup of hot water. Steep in boiling or near boiling water for four to five minutes, depending on your flavor preferences. Then, remove the tea leaves.
Some people enjoy sugar and/or lemon in their Earl Grey. While it is not traditional to add milk to citrusy teas, some people also enjoy milk in their Earl Grey (see london fog.)


If you're transitioning from tea bags to making tea with loose leaf tea, this listing is for you.

Your one stop tea shoppe!
“The journey of a thousand cups begins with a single sip” -Steve Schwartz

Enjoying the process of preparing your tea can be part of your daily ritual; taking a few moments to heighten your senses and enhance your tasting experience. Enjoy your tea and allow your taste buds to unfold the unique characteristics within your cup. Most teas can be re-steeped multiple times

Water temperature, the volume of tea leaves, and steeping time are all part of the art of brewing tea. Different compounds are extracted at different rates depending on water temperature and steeping time.
Green teas do better with shorter brewing times and lower water temperatures. Most green teas and greener oolong teas taste best when brewed at temperatures 30° - 40° F below boiling point (180° - 170°F).
Water temperature that is just below boiling (212°F) is ideal for black tea and oolong tea. Green tea is more delicate and requires a more delicate temperature.
Measure volume in weight instead of teaspoons for best results: 2 - 2.5  grams for a 6-ounce cup is ideal.

Hot tea brewing method:
1 teaspoon/6-8oz
Add heated water. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to tea and taste.

Iced tea brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add milk, sugar according taste.

Tea was discovered in its greenest form over five thousand years ago.
For centuries, all tea was green tea. Green tea is simply the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant placed to steep in hot water. 
Black tea is the most popular tea in the world.
There are four types of true teas including white tea, green tea, oolong tea, and black tea.
All four types of true teas are derived from the same exact plant species – Camellia sinensis.
The difference in these teas arises during the production process. Some teas are oxidized while others are simply sun-dried. These minor differences result in big flavor and color differences.
China is the birthplace of black tea, which in China is called, perhaps more appropriately, hong cha – red tea – after its the red colored tea it usually produces.
Black tea is usually graded on one of four scales of quality. Whole-leaf teas are the highest quality, with the best whole-leaf teas graded as “orange pekoe.” After the whole-leaf teas, the scale degrades to broken leaves, fannings, then dusts.
Whole-leaf teas are produced with little or no alteration to the tea leaf. This results in a finished product with a coarser texture than that of bagged teas.

We hand make all of our products to order in small batches to ensure optimal freshness, consistency, and potency. Our products are not made to sit on store shelves for extended amounts of time. Dried tea blends can last many years if sealed in an airtight container, and stored correctly (in a cool, dry, and dark place.) UV light offers the biggest threat to dried herbs and tea leaves, as prolonged sun exposure can turn leaves pale and zap them of their potency, aroma, and taste. Tea and other dried herbs don’t go bad, but will lose potency over time. If you notice these characteristics, or if tea herbs have turned pale, scentless, and flavorless, it’s best to discard the product. Always store your natural botanicals in cool, dry, and dark places as light and heat can effect the product quality and potency.

The information provided on this site is intended for your general knowledge only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment for specific medical conditions. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition or any health-related concern.

What's the quality of ingredients utilized?

We use 100% from Nature Ingredients. The majority of our herbs are organic and ethically wildcrafted and foraged locally. The rest are typically garden grown in our medicinal garden. We do outsource when needed and always choose quality, organic sources. We try to utilize our local small business owners but do have several things that are shipped from non local small family farms.
Our products are herbalist created in small batches and all natural, free of harmful chemicals, and are cruelty-free and eco-friendly. We focus on creating the best possible recipes each and every time and offer a quality you can't buy in store.

How is it made? What's the lowdown on the butters?

Everything is handmade to order in small batches using fair trade, organic, raw and wildcrafted ingredients whenever possible. This ensures your batch is fresh and the highest quality. We put our heart and soul into our products and trust that the plants will offer their healing to all that they touch.
We use Fair Trade, Raw and Organic Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter. We use unrefined butters as this keeps all the vitamins, minerals and other natural properties of the butters intact. Our cocoa butter is non deodorized as the process of deodorizing (removing the naturally occurring soft cocoa scent) will destroy the antioxidants that naturally occur in the butter.

Where's the chemicals?

Free from chemicals! Well, sort of. Technically, Chemicals make up all matter. That means stating that we use no chemicals would be a lie as the scientific definition of chemical means that most everything (other than "energy" itself) IS a chemical. But we know what you mean and we ARE Free from Parabens, Pesticides, Petroleum, Phthalates, Sulfates, SLS, Artificial Colors, Synthetic Fragrances, and all the other yucky stuff.

Sustainability Promise

We reuse everything we can, from cardboard boxes & packing peanuts, to shipping air pillows. We never buy plastic shipping materials, so if you receive one, that's us reusing one that was sent to us from a supplier. A vast majority of our supplies are reused from what suppliers send us. We recycle our cardboard, brown paper, printing paper, packing materials, plastic jugs, and as much plastic as can be recycled. Your order ships in reusable containers, whenever possible.

Any allergens?

Of course. There's a wide range of allergies and sensitivities out there and it's possible to be allergic to any ingredient used as well as cross allergies. Some of the butters and oils used can trigger nut allergies. We recommend messaging us directly for more info prior to buying if you're aware of any major allergens. Always perform a spot check on the inside of your arm. Apply a small quantity of product to skin, smaller than the size of a dime, and then wait several hours. Allergies can start at any stage and age so if an unsuspected allergy occurs when using a product, discontinue use immediately and consult your doctor.

MY ORDER WAS LOST IN THE MAIL OR STOLEN OUT OF MY MAILBOX! NOW WHAT?

Please understand that once your order ships we are no longer in control of what happens to your items.
If an item was lost in the mail and you paid for priority shipping we will file a claim, as soon as the claim is accepted we will issue a full refund. Please note if a package is marked as delivered we can not file a claim.
If an item was lost in the mail and you selected ground shipping at checkout we can not file a claim. At this point in time we will submit a mail recovery request with the USPS.

I would like to return this for a full refund!

Due to the nature of our products, we do not take returns or refunds. There are very special circumstances under which we may choose to refund an item or order.

My Salve/Balm melted in the mail!

During the summer, warm months, or warm weather:
Please remove your balms from the mailbox or porch as soon as they are delivered. We can not control shipping times or the weather (although we wish we could) and can not refund, replace or accept returns of melted balms. If your balms melt, using a handheld mixer can be useful, and just place it in a cool, dark location, or to quickly reset them, pop them in the fridge for 5-15 minutes. The balm quality should not be affected. Also, the balms may whiten in cooler temps; just give a stir! This will also not affect the quality. Thank you for your understanding.

If I drink the psychic tea will I become psychic? How do the "magic teas" work? What results can I expect?

There's no strong psychotropic. It's more of a gentle assist in opening the third eye, Sahasrara, and Agnya. I'm an herbalist so I choose to work with a combination of metaphysical attributes and ayurvedic. Some herbs in the psychic blend have very mild sedative properties, mostly to aid in relaxing and accessing the energies. I like to say "they're herbs, not magic." These blends offered are to simply help you access and expand your own magical intent. They have historical, traditional, and mythological ties to specific powers, but wouldn't necessarily invoke powers you do not have or haven't yet cultivated. These tea blends are lovely mild alternatives of safe herbs to open the gateway to accessing what you desire.

My cauldron has wax residue on it! What's the deal?

Cast iron products are traditionally made by casting melted iron ore into a mold.
Lost-wax process, also called cire-perdue, is a method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. The wax is then melted off. Some wax residue may remain, especially in crevices and design features. To remove any remaining wax, you can gently scrape it away with a tool or your fingernail. Clean with a damp cloth and dry well to prevent any rusting.
