Our Teas

Our teas are our specialty. Special tea! We make them with herbs that are tonic-type herbs, which means you can drink them every day, generally without adverse effects. However, every body is different and reacts to food and herbs in its own way. So pay attention to how the teas make you feel. Because they are created to have medicinal value, based on the traditional knowledge of the herbs and their uses.

Please note that at this point we are only selling teas locally in Massachusetts, out of our residential kitchen.

DIRECTIONS: for all our teas, add 1 teaspoon per 1 cup of hot water and brew, covered (keeps the medicine in the cup instead of floating away in the steam), for 10-15 minutes, depending on how strong you want your tea.

Loose Tea – $15, Bagged Tea – $7

Loose is approx. 50 cups = 30¢/cup.

Bagged contains 16 bags ≈ 44¢/cup.
