Goodbye Old Friend, Hello New Friends!

I am very sad to say that our Organic Blue Nettle is officially sold out.  Our Organic Blue Nettle was such an interesting and very loved tea so it is sad for me to see it go.  

On the positive side, we have added 2 new wonderful teas, Nilgiri Frost Oolong and Golden Stars.  For those who love our Organic Blue Nettle, I would highly recommend checking out the Golden Stars and also our Dragon Feelers.  Both of these teas have some similar notes and mouth feel to the Organic Blue Nettle.  

Our Golden Stars are handcrafted and tied into the shape of a star. This tea originates from China and is a smooth full-bodied tea that is juicy, buttery, and vegetal. Notes of sweet fresh spinach and artichokes can be detected as well as light lingering lemon notes. This delicate tea is delightful and refreshing. 

Our Nilgiri Frost Oolong originates from Nilgiri, in Southern India and is graded TGFOP (Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe). Since this tea is grown at a high elevation, the leaves are exposed to a light frost during some nights of the winter months. The long thin chocolate colored leaves are hand twisted and produce a weighty body. This smooth tea has notes of citrus, peach, pecan, and oak. There are many qualities similar to a Nilgiri black tea; however, the frost oolong is much gentler and sweeter. This tea is produced in very limited quantities due to the short harvest period and special conditions that must exist. 


  1. From now on I place my orders with you sooner lol

  2. Oh no, you missed out on the Organic Blue Nettle.
