When the first week of the month rolls around all things stop so that we can ship out tea mail! What is tea mail you ask?
Some of you are probably aware, and maybe even part of our monthly tea club subscription. Every month I blend a brand new tea especially for our V.I.P. Tea Club members. This tea gets sent out in the mail along with some other goodies:
* Small Treat from Local/Small Businesses
* Sample of one of our farm store teas
* Newsletter about current month's tea and treat
This month we blended up an herbal peach tea we call Cottage Peach. Featuring locally grown Oregon peaches that we processed and dehydrated here on the farm along with some Oregon Bee Pollen from our favorite local bee keeper. We paired it with some local granola from the Sweet Peony Flour Shop and sent it off to our tea club members. This week we decided to share the behind the scenes from blending to shipping with you. The farm isn't always growing fruits, flowers and veggies, sometimes the work is in the office too. Or in this case our new tea studio! We will catch you over on Youtube! Thanks for stopping by the farm.
Oh! If you want more details on our Tea Club you may grab that here. A little insider tip... June's tea is going to feature locally grown blueberries and our treat is something super sweet and yummy! Cheers!
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!
