There is a chill in the air. The mornings are a bit crisper and the sun sets a bit earlier. Yellow, orange, and red leaves are popping up more and more. My tea is turning from fruity, sweet, and iced to hot, rich, and spicy.
Fall is in the air and in my cup.
With all of that comes back-to-school season (or in our case, homeschool season), and with back-to-school usually comes back-to-germs, colds and flus.
No need to fear though! This week we are sharing a secret weapon of how you can fight cold and flu season naturally. Not only will this super awesome berry syrup help you prevent colds and flus, but it will help kick any cold and flu you catch, to the curb, quicker and faster. This berry syrup is full of super berry goodness and one berry in the mix you may not even be familiar with.
Blend of the Month
Brrrr...... its cold out there! What is the weather like where you all are? Up on our mountain side its been in the high 20's and 30's when we wake up in the morning.
The wood stove has been keeping us nice and toasty but we sure are going through the wood this year. Its always nice to have that first wood burning fire and something to cozy up to. I don't know about you but those little wall heaters or forced air vents just aren't the same cozy as a wood stove.
Along with keeping warm by the fire we have been drinking our share of tea on the farm. Another great way to warm up in the wet, dark, foggy Oregon days. We have been enjoying so many of our new blends! The Farmer's new favorite is our La Pine Licorice Spice. Its a rather sweet tea and he has a sweet tooth.
I wanted to introduce you all to our tea of the month for our tea club! Welcome Aronia Plum Berry!
Containing that lovely fragrant bunch of warming spices that is so prevalent in many of our winter time teas, this beauty also features Oregon grown aronia berries, plums and cornflowers.
Its full of sweetness because it too also has licorice root in it along with almond extract and some of our very precious vanilla (that stuff is up to over $400 a pound now!).
If this sounds like a tea that you would love, hop on over and check out our Monthly Tea Club! Every month we are blending a new tea for our tea club members. We started out with Apple Pie Chai in October and moved on to Pumpkin HazelNOT coffee in November and I've got something up my sleeve for January I think you will all love.
Along with the tea of the month, the tea club also comes with a sample of tea which is already in our farm store, a local treat (We have done chocolate & cherries, local raw honey and this month all natural soap from our favorite soap maker), VIP access to our private sipping group and a recipe to go with your tea of the month (or use your tea of the month in!).
Grab the details here! We also have a couple of members gifting memberships for Christmas which is a fabulous idea .... so fabulous that I too am gifting memberships to friends and family this year.
Thanks for stopping by the farm!
