Live in each season as it passes.
Breathe the air. Drink the drink. Taste the fruit.
And resign yourself to the influence of the Earth.
- HENRY DAVID THOREAU
From the very beginning, we dreamed of crafting beautiful, seasonal teas as part of what we offer you here at Almanac Supply Co. - a selection of teas that assist you in embracing the seasons, with the flavors and energetics that will align your senses with the slow flow of the Earth.
And here we are, launching our first set of teas with our new line: Mother Tree's Botanical Teas.
To bring Mother Tree's to life, we began with four delicious herbal blends, formulated by our herbalist friend, Lindsay Kluge of Ginger Tonic Botanicals.
Lindsay is a long-time business friend of mine. Her background as a clinical herbalist and licensed nutritionist, along with her practical use of herbs and seasonal living in her daily life, made her the perfect choice for helping us bring these first teas to the world.
And these first creations are a beautiful stroll through the seasons, be they the seasons of the year, the cycles of the day, or a time in your life. We're excited to introduce them to you now.
