Zhena's Blending Notes

Precious organic hand-rolled white tea pearls from mist-covered mountains with pristine coastal soils dance playfully with the mysteries of elegant Persian love cake--an ancient recipe of sweet rose and intoxicating pistachio meant to romance the palate and the soul. A tea filled with healing properties for balancing beauty, love and lasting friendship.

What is a Persian Love Cake? 

Once upon a time in ancient Persia a beautiful young woman fell madly in love with a prince who was unattainable to her “station” in life. Instead of letting her deep feelings of love go unrequited, she baked a magical love cake with Roses & Pistachios in hopes to make him fall in love with her. After receiving the cake from the beautiful stranger, he fell deeply in love with her after just one bite. This tea will bring you the same magical experience with love at first sip. 

A Poem for Libra

Gentle diplomat, lover of harmony, bestower of beauty and balance, we bow to you as we cherish the gifts you share with the world as the effervescent keeper of peace. In your palm we find the worlds of dark, light, love, loss, and every emotion & experience between--you hold them tenderly and with care as you know we will all undergo their earthly spell. You care for our emotional lives and harken the sun and moon equally, along with the divine and mundane in each breath. You are the veil that is lifted when we gain the awareness of our psyches gorgeous depth, and you are the blessing we receive when heaven's gates open to our awareness.

Libra- Pistachio-Rose Persian Love Cake Tea with White Pearls & Shatavari Violet Glass Apothecary Jar (75 Cups)

Magical Botanicals

Pistachios

Pistachios are a good source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats, which can help promote feelings of fullness and aid in weight management. They also contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Rose Buds

Roses are not only beautiful and fragrant, but they also have health benefits. Rose petals contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that may help reduce the risk of chronic disease. The essential oil of roses has been shown to have calming and soothing effects on the mind and body, and it may help reduce stress and anxiety. Additionally, rose tea has been used in traditional medicine for its potential benefits on digestion, skin health, and immune function.

White Tea

White tea is a type of tea that is minimally processed and contains high levels of antioxidants, including polyphenols and catechins, which may help protect against cellular damage. It also contains L-theanine, an amino acid that has been shown to have relaxing effects on the mind and body, promoting a sense of calm and reducing stress and anxiety. Additionally, white tea may have anti-aging properties and improve skin health by reducing inflammation and protecting against UV damage.

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!

    Unique and delicious

    Loved this tea so much! The combination of pistachios, rose, and cardamom is so unique and beautifully balanced. Drinking this has inspired me to try and bake an actual Persian Love cake. Can't wait to try them together!

    True to the title

    While I personally ended up not caring for the taste as I found it very chocolatey, this tea does what it advertises very well. I took a chance on my flavor palette and didn't care for it, but that doesn't mean it doesn't taste how it says.

    I don’t know how such a simple tea can be so amazing!

    Seriously, amazing doesn’t even cover it. This is quite possibly the most delicious thing I have ever put in my mouth. A little bit of honey, splash of cream and I am in HEAVEN! I ordered a travel jar to try it out and I’m scared my refill pouch won’t be here before I run out. If you buy this tea make sure you follow the instructions for steeping it- if you let it sit too long it can be a little bitter- but if you follow the instructions it will blow your freaking mind.
