This past week, my husband and I were sipping on a festive Organic Cranberry Orange Tea while preparing baked goodies for a catered party. It’s a nice tea to have on hand during the Christmas season for drop-in visitors; it’s a black tea (but doesn’t have that overwhelmingly strong “malty” flavor that you often find in black teas).
For our family members (especially children) that choose to avoid black tea, and prefer a caffeine-free drink, Rooibos Tea has been often requested. The sweet Organic Honeybush Tea is a great option, and is also a perfect addition to my homemade “real food” Russian Tea, which I’m preparing for a party at church this weekend! I’m looking forward to sampling the Honeybush as an iced tea in the summer, too.
As I enter the third trimester of pregnancy, I’ve been drinking more Pregnancy Tea infusions throughout the day. (I make a hot cup in the morning, but I often end up getting distracted by other tasks and end up drinking it cold later in the day, though…)
I had just gone to pick up more herbs for my own tea blend recipe, but the store was sold out of some of the essentials. I was thrilled to receive a packet of Savvy Teas & Herbs’ Pregnancy Prep Blend the next week in the mail; all ready to go during this busy season! (Or, I could have ordered the herbs in bulk from them as well; I’m noting the Comfrey, since I’ll need plenty of that on hand for postpartum baths & salves.) I often like to add some extra Red Raspberry Leaf to my infusions during the last few weeks, as well.
In addition to teas, they also offer some other lovely-sounding products (many of which would make awesome stocking stuffers for Christmas!), such as the rich Herbal Salve (definitely a natural first aid kit essential), Organic Vanilla Extract, and Handmade Soaps, as well as their pretty teapots, infusers, and other accessories.
For my own “wish list,” I’ve been eyeing the Starter Cultures (some of mine sadly did not survive a wintertime out-of-state move awhile ago), and the Sprouting Kits! Sprouts are one of our favorite ways to eat green veggies during the winter, and with the growth of our family, a larger sprouting surface would be ideal.
