  1. Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks for sharing the scoop on Lapacho bark. I’m passing it on to one of my friends…have given her a sample of the Holy Healer, one of my favorite teas… especially since I have RA and it seems to comfort my joints on cold Illinois mornings. My daughter actually got me hooked on Steeped & Infused because she brought some back from a trip to Toronto and passed them on to me. It didn’t take much :o ) My newest “try” is the Sencha Berry Fig…so good in the afternoon with shortbread. The only thing I like better than your teas is the Breville tea brewer, also from my daughter. Needless to say, it gets a lot of use. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and your teas.

  2. Hi Maryann,

    Thank you for your great feedback. I’m glad to hear that Holy Healer helps with your RA. It’s great for the immune system. I drink it often too as it helps with my fibromyalgia.
    The Sencha Berry Fig is great too – it is seasonal. We’re in the process of working on a new tea menu and will be introducing some new blends within the next 2 months that I’m sure you’ll enjoy too!
    Enjoy your Sunday afternoon.
    Thanks again,
