–Herbal Teas $5.00/1 oz. Package:

Manzanita Ridge Tea- This is our personal favorite, a tea with wonderful anise flavor that makes an excellent hot or iced beverage. Contains: anise hyssop, borage, bergamot, lemon balm and manzanita blossoms.

Sleep Ease Tea- A nice blend to help relax, unwind and ease tension. Contains: skullcap, catnip, hops, chamomile, lavender, bergamot.

Tulsi Rose Tea- Holy basil is a wonderful herb that helps reduce the physical and mental affects of stress. It aids in building endurance and is a great afternoon pick me up. Combined with mineral rich nettles and calendula/rose petals for a nice caffeine free invigoration.

Licorice Mint- Comforting and refreshing all at the same time, a delicious combination to enjoy hot or iced. Licorice root and mint are a lovely pairing not only for their flavor but also for their calming and soothing effects on the tummy and spirit.
