"Tea is hot and getting hotter. From iced to spiced, from austere black tea to sweetened and milky chai, from a flowery pick-me-up to a healing herbal, no other beverage has such a place in the heart of every civilization. No wonder it is the most popular beverage in the world, next to water."

July’s “ Tea of the Month ” is Island Getaway!

Iced tea is too pure and natural a creation not to have been invented
as soon as tea, ice, and hot weather crossed paths.  ~ John Egerton

July’s “ Tea of the Month ” is
Island Getaway!

Enjoy our naturally sweet, sugar-free "Fruit Punch" Tea created originally by Jason, my husband, business partner and fellow tea-lover in 2010, when we first began selling our herbal teas.  Back then, we only had 3 original teas for sale and a whole slew of recipes I concocted for future blends.  But Jason decided he wanted to make teas too!  So, I presented him with a basket of goodies I considered user-friendly and safe for amateur herbalists, so he too could begin experimenting and making his own herbal medicine!

And to our delight, his creation turned out to be one of our personal YD favorites!  A perfectly proportioned blend of tart and tasty, gentle healthful herbs, fruits and flowers, including: South African Red Rooibos, Orange Peel & Hibiscus Flowers with a touch of Stevia Leaf; Island Getaway is always our first choice for hot days and family gatherings!

~ Indeed, Island Getaway makes a perfect cup of caffeine-free, kid-friendly fruity iced tea on a hot summer's day!~

To make a gallon pitcher to share, use 10-12 tea bags of Island Getaway,  chill overnight, remove tea bags and enjoy for days to come!  Try making tea ice cubes too and add even more flavor to your tea, juice or water!
