Zhena's Blending Notes

When Aries are born, the Earth is awakening from winter slumber. As the fresh buds push toward the sun through thawing soil, the scents of spring and new life begin to color the air. As I meditated on how to embody this optimistic time of year into the Aries tea, I was beckoned by rebirth. Along with the traits of the creative, charisma known to Aries, my quest was to harness the intoxicating mood of the season which would be heady and uplifting yet also helpful for the health concerns of the sign of Aries (headaches, allergies) as well as for all of us seeking the energy of renewal and rebirth.

One of my favorite and wildly rare teas is GABA oolong from Taiwan. It is oxidized in a chamber without oxygen, which increases the GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) levels in the tea exponentially. GABA is known to alleviate excitability and calm the nervous system. This is also a delicious tea of impeccable smooth character. 

Then I sought to blend the oolong with a floral green tea from high altitude--one that would express the mist-strewn regions of wild-grown spring harvest tea leaves, and thus Cloud Mist Supreme-a very rare high mountain tea piqued my palate and lent an air of innocence and youth to the more wise GABA oolong. I sprinkled Mao Feng into it--another favorite spring green and voila the base of the blend was harmonized.  Remembering my grandmother's garden, where I'd harvest Blackberries for her during spring, this brought the heart to the blend. Memories of spring inspire all of us, don't they? I would eat more than I delivered to her, with black-stained fingers and face, she would laugh with me as she took my little hand and taught me how to make sweet Blackberry Jam. Aha, blackberries had to be a part of this magical potion!

Bergamot is a small tangerine-like citrus from Italy, I added the essential oil as in aromatherapy it's a natural mood lifter, when it married the blackberry, the perfume became iconic. But first a Madagascar Double-Fold Vanilla Extract had to be added to the oolong, cured, and then these essences added--from here alchemy was born.

Fine rosebuds tightly bound then called to be added--as they open while steeped, reminding us of our blooming potential, and give the promise of a romantic, lovely summer ahead. Roses are the highest vibration flower in the world and known to support glowing skin, digestion, and mood.

Reishi Mushroom gently dusts the tea leaves for calm, sustained energy levels, and to protect our precious immune systems during the warming of the longer days. All in all, this blend is a promise of youthful vivacity, an energizing bliss-inducing steep. I find myself craving it's energy and perfumes when looking for respite and relief from the weight of the world.  

Double fold Vanilla Extract grounds this tea to round each element within it for a perfectly balanced blend.

A Poem to Aries

Everything is possible with Aries energy at the helm. Miracles stem from your childhood wonder and ability to walk among the nature spirits equally with dreamy artists and exuberant entrepreneurs. Fearlessly step into your calling, and let go of competition as a source of energy to find your oneness with humanity. Here is where miracles abound for you. Aries, surrender to the love of your Guardian Angel Ariel who will remind you to return to a state of awe, to tread lightly on the earth and to dance in relationship as a source of connection and abundance. Allow yourself to be a breath of fresh air for all you meet-as this is your natural gift.

Magical Botanicals

GABA Oolong

Gaba Oolong

GABA oolong tea is a type of tea that has been fermented and treated with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which may provide several health benefits. Firstly, GABA has been shown to have calming effects, making it a potential natural remedy for anxiety and stress. It may help regulate blood pressure and improve cardiovascular health, and contains neuroprotective properties and improve cognitive function.

Reishi

Reishi Mushroom

Reishi mushroom is known to help boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body, as well as have anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects, and helping to regulate blood sugar levels and improve liver function.

Rose Buds

Rose buds may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making them useful in reducing cellular damage and inflammation in the body and may help promote relaxation and reduce anxiety due to their calming properties. They may also aid in digestion and help relieve digestive issues such as bloating and constipation.

FROM FARM TO CUP

We source from small organic and Biodynamic farmers in Sri Lanka, India, Africa, China and Japan. The Sri Lankan farm that grows the base of most of our blends is where I was married, our tea workers threw our wedding in their small Lakshmi Temple in the tea garden. I have a direct relationship to most of our farmers and find the greatest joy in buying their most precious small batch artisan teas.

ZHENA'S BLENDING PROCESS

I blend with my muses (what I call our customers) in mind, making sure that each certified organic ingredient is the purest of pure for their health and well-being. I have found the combinations of flower, tea, herb, spice, adaptogen and essential oil to be endless and thrilling.

About Our Violet Glass Apothecary Jar

About Our Iconic Violet Glass Apothecary Jars

We're passionate about preserving the potency of the organic, rare teas and botanicals we blend for you. From day one, the goal was for you to be able to buy the jar once, and refill it for infinity. We not only love the look and feel of authentic violet-hued glass from Miron—the only patented biophotonic scientific glass—but we love the science of it when it comes to its unparalleled preservation and energization of the teas stored inside.

Buy it Once, Refill it for Life!

Picture your new Magic Hour Jar as a magical shield for your fresh, hand blended tea leaves. This special glass, with its captivating violet hue, works like a guardian against the harmful UV and visible light that can steal away the essence of your tea. But here's the real magic: Miron Glass lets in just the right rays, the ones that enhance flavor, aroma, and the goodness in every leaf. So when you open your jar, you're in for an aromatherapeutic moment as you inhale the fresh and captivating scents of our pinnacle organic blends. 

Why We Chose the Patented Miron Violet Glass from the Netherlands to Package your Tea:

The science behind our Violet Glass Jar lies in its unique ability to selectively filter and protect against specific wavelengths of light. Here's how it works:

Violet Light Absorption: Our jars appear violet or dark purple due to their composition. They are designed to absorb and block a significant portion of visible light, especially in the violet and ultraviolet (UV) spectrum.

UV and Visible Light Protection: Our violet glass jar is particularly effective at blocking harmful UV-A and UV-B rays, which can cause photodegradation and the deterioration of organic compounds. Additionally, it filters out a substantial portion of visible light, which can also contribute to the degradation of sensitive substances.

Beneficial Light Transmission: While the violet glass blocks detrimental light, it allows certain light wavelengths to pass through. It is selective in permitting specific light frequencies to enter, primarily in the violet and infrared spectrum. These wavelengths are believed to have preservative properties and can help maintain the quality and freshness of the substances stored inside.

Preservation of Bioenergetics: It not only protects physical properties but also preserves the bioenergetic or vibrational information of the contents, further enhancing their quality.

FAQ

How and where do you source your teas?

Our teas are cultivated, harvested, and blended from soil to cup with the Magic Hour Rule of Love. The base of our teas is grown in the tea estate where I was married :)! The exquisite buds are grown and harvested by our friends in a garden that touches the sky at the top of the mountains in the high-country of Sri Lanka. The pristine Idulgashinna Bio Tea Garden’s perched above a wildlife preserve. It was the first tea garden to become certified Biodynamic and organic in the world, it’s home to our family of farmers and growers whose respect towards nature and one another has become the gold standard of tea estates all over the world. We also source from small organic family gardens in Taiwan, Rwanda, India, Yunnan, Kyoto and Kagoshima, Japan.

What does "Natural Flavors" mean?

Our formulator, Zhena, is an aromatherapist and was one of the founders of the Organic and Fair Trade movement over 25 years ago. She was crucial in getting rules for organics passed and has had a long-time passion for organics, Biodynamics and pure products. Her blending style is bold and she uses Organic-Compliant extracts of fruits, essential oils, and spices that fall under the “Natural Flavors” broad stroke ingredient description by the FDA. We only use extracts and flavors extracted with non-toxic methods and are 100% natural coming from the fruit or spice or flower that is distilled without chemicals.

Other companies may use “Natural Flavors” that are in a Propylene Glycol base—Zhena fought the label standards on this chemical 15 years ago and is dedicated to NEVER using flavorings with this or any other chemicals. Our flavors are entirely extracted naturally using alcohol or steam distillation. In the blending process, if the extract has alcohol, the alcohol dissipates. If you’ve ever used Vanilla Extract for cooking—you’ve used what Zhena uses in larger volumes.

When we writes, “Natural Flavors” it’s not because we wants to but that’s what the FDA requires. It’s not a great description and we assure you our standards are of the highest using only natural extracts and essential oils.

Are your teas vegan?

Please feel free to enjoy most of our teas without worry regarding being vegan compliant.
As of May of 2021, the only tea we have that is not vegan is Quintessence, which contains honey crystals.

How many times can you steep a tea?

You could steep our teas many times. A new flavor nuance will arise each time. If you’re planning to steep more than twice, you might want to add an additional teaspoon or two according to taste and the strength desired.

What is the best way to steep tea when I have a super busy schedule?

It's a common misconception that tea ceremony has to take up a lot of time from your schedule. I want to encourage you to take time for yourself, daily, in a simple tea ceremony. Simply naming 3 gratitudes as your water boils will uplift and shift your day!

However, the process only has to take as little as 10 minutes! For example, for most of our teas we suggest steeping 1 heaping teaspoon in water that is between 160--212 degrees (depending on the tea type--check the label!). As you steep your tea for the recommended minutes, take 3 heart-breaths, expanding the emerald green energy of your heart chakra. As you expand that blessed energy, you will activate your true intelligence which is found in the heart.

Then as you steep your loose-leaf magical tea, center into your senses. As yourself the Magic Hour sensory questions:

  • What do I hear?
  • What do I see?
  • What do I feel?
  • What do I smell?
  • What do I taste?

Then sip your tea with newfound presence.

Presence is where heaven is found. We want you to find your heaven on a daily basis!

    This tea is amazing! Great flavor and very relaxing, however I found out I am sensitive to the mushrooms it is made with, so I have to be careful how much I enjoy the tea.
