We add some natural sweeteners to our tea blends, using unprocessed green Stevia Leaf or Licorice Root.
Our Stevia leaf is totally natural and from the farm. Most of the stevia you find in the market have been mixed with other chemicals. It is hard to find a pure and clean liquid stevia. Stevia is a very natural sweetener that doesn’t contain any artificial sweeteners like asparatame, etc. In our opinion it is the cleanest and safest to use. I often bake with it!!
I often get asked which one I recommend (in liquid form). The NOW Foods Stevia is the best I have found.
I make an Avocado Chocolate Mousse that is delicious!
2 whole avocados (medium)
1 can organic coconut cream
2 tbsp cacao powder
50 drops stevia (or more to your liking)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Mix with a hand mixer or toss in a high powdered blender, until creamy and smooth. YUM!!!
We often get asked where we get our favorite tumblers to go that fit our Extra Long Tea Straws!
The best cup we have come across is the U-Konserve Insulated Coffee Cup, which we usually find the best prices on Amazon.
The best thing about this cup is that it keeps your tea nice and hot, without being hot on the outside. Plus, the silicon top fits our straws perfectly.
Just scoop your favorite tea blend directly into cup, pour in your hot water, insert straw, put on top (pop the straw through the drink hole) and BOOM, you have loose leaf to go. Then just keep filling your cup with hot water throughout the day until you can’t taste your tea anymore. This way you’re getting the most out of your tea, and it’s super convenient!!
I’ve been an avid tea drinker for as long as I can remember. Regular old black tea, Indian chai, Japanese matcha- as long as you can classify it as tea, I’ll drink it. Being able to drink as many varieties of tea as I could possibly drink is one of my life’s main goals.
Drinking tea in the morning, afternoon, or evening is one of the best things you can do for your health. While many people drink coffee, it is well known that coffee contains high level of caffeine and if you drink it too often, you can experience some of the side effects of too much caffeine intake. Most common side effects of caffeine are increased heart rate, headache, dizziness and anxiety.
The stainless steel teapot is a relatively new arrival on the scene, in relation to the rich history that the humble teapot enjoys and it is not near as old as the cast iron teapot for example. There are differing opinions on who invented the first teapot; some credit this to the Chinese, others to the influence of Muslim coffeepots commonly used in European coffee houses during the mid-1600’s.
We were up against other popular tea companies like Adagio, Republic of Tea, and Teavana. That’s some tough competition!
Individual tastes and personal preferences in drinks of all kinds are something which both unites us and divides us.
From fruit-packed smoothies to piping hot chocolate, bottles of refreshing coca-cola to cooling iced coffee, we all have our favourites and will go out of our way to enjoy the beverage of our choosing.

Tea is one of the nation’s favourite pre-bedtime drinks, and while for many it’s just become part of their daily for routine, there are those who swear that a cuppa before bed actually helps them fall asleep.
However, how true is it? There’s limited evidence to support that tea can help you sleep, but with so many people claiming it does, there must be some truth to it, right?
