Cottage Herbalist Tea Blends
We think these are fabulous teas to make Jun or Kombucha with. Also - to enjoy as hot or cold tea. Or in any of your other brewing activites of course... you could totally add them to a mead for example (I choose the Nettelmint for that one!)
We love this tea because we know the maker - who works almost like a hedgewitch fon the edge of the Wombat Forest, near our little apothecary garden in Trentham. We first knew her from our Daylesford factory days - so we'd also like you to meet Caroline Parker: a herbalist, farmer, forager and workshop facilitator.
From her small home based studio, in the cool and misty Wombat Forest, she blends up her Award Winning tea and tisane range. They are all hand blended and packed by Caroline in small batches, using certified organic/ wildcrafted/grown-by-her tea, flowers and herbs. We think they're all beautiful blends & think you will too!
When she isn't blending tea you'll find her over at Pennyweight Farm sowing seeds, picking flowers, prepping garden beds, shovelling compost, talking to plants and tearing around on the ride on mower. She also has her own book coming out soon, and you'll see her on our workshop list here in the store. x
