Hello, Dear Ones, welcome to August, and the beginning of a brand new collection! We’re beyond thrilled to share this truly incredible journey with you. Zhena has spent the last year drawing from her lifetime of study in tea and herbalism, flower power and aromatherapy, and combined it all into these exquisite, luxurious and nourishing Blue Moon Beauty Teas. This blue-tea-ful series aligns with the celestial Moon Phases, and is alchemically created to support your true beauty, your inner beauty, which radiates outward from your being into the world.
These are our most complex and potent Magic Hour tea blends yet, amplified by the use of organic Butterfly Pea Flower which is an exceptional beautifier that supports collagen production and women's health. In this collection you'll find medicinal honeysuckle flowers, antioxidant rich persimmons, organic silver needle white tea buds, and we introduce you to PURPLE tea, which is a new cultivar of the tea plant, boasting the highest antioxidant levels of any other tea!
Introducing Blueberry Lavender Moon:
We begin with a truly one-of-a-kind blend, Blueberry Lavender Moon, which features Purple Tea! If you’ve never experienced purple tea before, you are in for a treat. This blend is smooth tasting like an oolong, akin to our Ti Quan Yin Oolong, with notes of ripe blueberry and fresh, wild lavender, and almost double the antioxidants from other types of tea. The purple tea varietal we include is from Kenya, and is an incredible source of healing and purifying for skin, digestion, circulation and more. Purple tea was originally discovered in India and later taken to Kenya for cultivation, which now leads as the largest producer of purple tea in the world.
Purple Tea is lighter than black tea but not quite as vegetal tasting as green tea. It is very high in anthocyanins, the beneficial antioxidant-rich flavonoids found in blueberries, eggplant, purple grapes and other blue, purple or dark red foods, giving them their color. Purple tea is low in caffeine (less than green tea, slightly more than white tea), sitting at around 20mg per cup. The anthocyanins in purple tea can also help lower inflammation and reduce free radicals, which cause oxidative stress and can damage our cells and result in illness.
We alchemize this luxurious Purple leaf tea with Organic Blueberry, Organic Lavender, Licorice Root, Butterfly Pea Flower, and Natural Blueberry Extract to create the most heavenly aroma and taste, with every cup. Inside our Radiant Moon Box for August, you’ll also receive a mystical wisdom-packed teaching video from our August Magician and our dear friend, Tammeri Ater-Ntonni, certified Astrologer and Reiki Energy Healer. And our bonus gift is a beautiful journal for you to write, create and muse in, in a surprise of 1 of 3 different styles!
