Our Turmeric Blends are a Hit!

Last week we introduced three new Turmeric Tea Blends: Organic Turmeric Citrus Zest, Organic Turmeric Relief, and Organic Turmeric Chai. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.

That first week alone, Turmeric Teas accounted for 23% of all online sales. That's significant! We attribute this to our customers' good taste and desire for healthy living (not to mention our low introductory prices)!

The three Turmeric Blends are still on sale, and will remain so until the end of the month. If you haven't done so yet, try them today. For those close to our Tea Room in Tarrytown, they're available there too.

Turmeric - Full of Health

Ceylon tea comes from the island republic of Sri Lanka which is in the Bay of Bengal below the southeastern tip of India.  Sri Lanka was formerly a British crown colony and it kept this name almost a quarter century after its independence.  In 1972, the country changed its name to Sri Lanka and after heated debate, it was decided that abandoning the name "Ceylon Tea" would be devastating to its thriving tea industry. So a priceless brand was saved.

Spring - Flowers, Sunshine & Allergies!

Silver Tips Tea Loose Leaf Herbal Wellness Blends

In a few days we Spring Forward and gain a welcome hour of daylight.  Finally, we start saying goodbye to the grey and gloom of winter.  Daffodils and crocus appear, the grass turns from brown to green and spirits lift.  The Spring Solstice on March 20 heralds in the official start of the Spring Season and so too come the dreaded Allergies.  Long-time sufferers stock up on tissues, anti-histamines and sneeze their way through the day.  Everyone looks for natural remedies.  One such solution is honey bee pollen.
