200 Teas and counting.

It will take me some time but eventually we will have information about each one of the 200 teas presently in the shop, including the new ones that I keep finding, ( I have never met a tea that I didn’t like, although there are some I like better than others). Each tea has its own  Magic, its own appointed task to accomplish, very much like herbs, spices and incense. Some are relaxing,  some healing, soothing nerves or upset stomaches, and some are energizing like the one we are featuring today.

Are you looking for a quick pick-me-up in the morning?  Or feeling like you need a mid-afternoon boost for those long days at the office?  EnergyTea to the rescue!

This delicious, sweet with a spicy-minty bite, tea rolls over the palate like a tidal wave, filling the mouth with a pleasant herbal astringent. Wow wake up!Gynostemma lends the sweet profile: a leafy plant known by herbalists as a miracle grass, herb of immortality and the fairy herb. Ginger is known to speed blood circulation and stimulate the body. Peppermint has the ability to perk up even the sleepiest of us while delivering high levels of vitamin A and C. Peppermint’s elevated levels of menthol are responsable for its sweet/hot flavor that can heat up and cool the mouth at the same time. The addition of natural Lemon, Lemon Grass and Green Mate complete this rousing tea, an herbal blend that really creates a cup of vim and vigor and puts a gleam in the eye and a bounce in the step.

Visit the Funky Karma Incense & Tea Shop and try a cup of this invigorating tea: take home an ounce or two for those times you are tired but need to keep on ticking – it’s equally as effective hot or iced.

Holiday Weekend

catnipThe shop will close at 4pm Saturday May 29th, remain closed on Sunday and Monday (our regular day closed) and reopen 10am Tuesday June 1st.

We wish all a safe and relaxing weekend.  I plan to work in my garden, perhaps harvest some mints – have planted every kind I could find – peppermint, spearmint, apple mint, lemon mint, chocolate mint and pineapple mint. Hope to find an orange mint next time I go to the plant store.  This is the first season of the garden at the new location and after much hard work the garden shed is up and setup with drying racks, the brick patio is laid and the garden cultivated and planted. Most of the mints are in pots so they won’t overrun their neighbors, growing fast and will be giving up a small harvest this year.  All mints are so useful in teas, incense blends, and oils.  Products using my home grown mints will be available sometime in July.

Pluma has 4 catnip plants; he’s been sampling the product and approved of it, and will share with others as soon as I harvest, dry and crochet it into toys.  Most likely will be in the shop by mid June.
