3 Pack Sampler

We all love a sampler, right!?!

This 3 pack sampler gives 1 ounce of a red, black, and green tea. While I chose the Love Love Love, Citrus Zing, and Berry Mojito please don’t be limited to those. Most people don’t chose what they want when they order therefore I decided to pick 3 as a good start. If you order the sampler and wish to pick different teas please just place a note in the “note to seller” section.

The Teas:

Love Love Love

This caffeine free tea is a great tea for any tea drinker, someone brand new to tea or have tried it all.
Honeybush tea is vey mild, but gives great flavor without caffeine. Floral hints from rose hips, hibiscus flower, and lady’s mantle is balanced with the fruity aroma of dried plums.
Ingredients:
Honeybush tea, dried plums, lady’s mantle, rose hips, and hibiscus flower.
Try 8 ounce of this tea hot, with 2 ounces of steamed milk on top for a relaxing TeaLatte!

Citrus Zing

This is by far 1 of my top 3 favorites. It gives that powerful zing of flavor! Tired of those not so flavorful teas, well then Citrus Zing is for you!

Ingredients:
Assam Black tea, yerba mate, lemongrass, orange peel, lemon peel, stevia leaf, tulsi leaf, eleuthero root, myrtle leaf, and tangerine peel.
Contains caffeine
Try this with equal parts orange juice!! OMG DELICIOUS

 

Berry Mojito

Like a mojito? This fruity green tea with an essence of mint is what  you need, no cocktail required.

Ingredients:
Spring green tea, dried blueberries, hibiscus flower, stevia leaf, blackberry leaf and spearmint leaf.

Contains caffeine

This is an amazing iced tea for summer, or use it as the base for an alcoholic mojito!!! YES!

SAMPLE ME!

Oh my, What a Year!

I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN 4 MONTHS SINCE MY LAST POST!

 

My oh my, where does time fly?

It surely has been a crazy, and fast year but well worth everything so far. We are officially moved into our new home, and hoping not to move for AT LEAST 10 years to come. I hate moving, how about you?!?

My husband just happened to be working in South Carolina for the past month, so I was lucky enough to move on my own (with family and friends of course). The good thing about moving on your own…losing 6 lbs! I don’t see that staying off, but hey life happens and I love my food hehe.

I finally took the step of getting my logo, YAAAYYYY! I love it so much. I of course went right to Etsy to find the perfect shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/FreshLavenderDesigns

What do you think of my new logo?!? harlowfinal copyI played with my labels a bit after my logo was complete and love my labels more now than ever. My goal in the next few months is to ensure I work on my blog, and not only keep up my ideas on Instagram and Facebook. I have not completely left all of you so find my social media to see more of my ideas from the past few months.

Facebook

 

I have also been lucky enough to have amazing reviews on a few other awesome blogs! Find my reviews at:

Below are some of my concoctions and goodies that you may have missed out on:

 

   

I have been having so much fun with tea this year, and I wish for everyone to join in on the fun!

 

 

New Projects 

Well it has been awhile!

So many ideas going around in my head and so little time⏱

My Etsy shop has seen some amazing customers over the past 2 months and I couldn’t be happier with my steady growth as a small business.

What’s new you ask?!? Oh so much. I have had many ideas for new uses for my tea but I have been working on my products themselves over the past 2 months.

Three new teas! Soon to be four 😍🍵😍

Welcome Oo’ Peppermint, The Cleanse and Black Licorice Chia to the Harlow family.

PicMonkey Collage2.jpgOo’ Peppermint contains oolong tea, my first use of the amazing tea leaves!

The Cleanse is an amazing day time tea to help clean out your system, especially when combined with Night Time Tea. The perfect combination for a full detox with the help of tea.

Black Licorice Chia is my first attempt at a chia tea blend, and has so many spicey notes with anise seed being picked up the most, giving it the reference for its name.

Another new addition, which I am sending out the first order today, is the 12 pack sampler. It contains all of my current tea blends, minus The Cleanse and Night Time Tea.

Each of the packs in the sampler gives the perfect amount of tea for an 8 oz. glass of tea. I believe it is the best way to ensure you get the perfect tea for your taste.

Not everyone has the same tastes so even my recommendations or going off of reviews may not get the perfect cup of tea for YOU!

Speaking of reviews I can say I have had some amazing feedback from my customer base. From close friends, family, fellow Etsy sellers, and just good ole’ Etsy shoppers I truly appreciate all of my customers beyond belief. They are how a business grows and changes for the better.

Some of my amazing reviews, and you can see more on my Etsy site.

13001221_548137098723188_5193345616124040760_nI can’t say it enough, I LOVE MY CUSTOMERS. So to make my products even better I have also added waterproof labels to my items, excluding the sampler pack because those don’t sit out or last long. The waterproof labels are so much brighter and allow for the products to sit on the counter without the labels running.

13087340_10154970176179657_8259398874172625411_nThey are so pretty with the waterproof labels!!! See the map in the background?!?

I have decided to make it fun to track my orders by state. It gives me a bright and cheery way to track my success and see where all of my goodies have gone through the country. I was able to color in Kentucky for this order as well!

 

A few orders for a small company mean so much so please check out my Etsy shop and feel free to make any suggestions to help my company grow!

Say Aloha Tea

Edit: name for the tea is Say Aloha

Tea purchase link : Say Aloha

Sometimes we just have those days where a creative block won’t go away. Well in my case it has been about a week. SOOOO…I need your help!

I started off making a strawberry daiquiri inspired tea and ended up with something a little different. That tends to happen in experimenting with blending ingredients to get that key flavor. Sometimes life doesn’t come out as you want it, but the end result is still good!

What do I need your help with you ask? I NEED A NAME FOR THIS BLEND.

IMG_5832

Think you can come up with a name, well here are some facts about the tea:

  • Houjicha Green Tea base
  • Floral taste with fruity undertones
  • Ingredients include hibiscus flower, myrtle leaf, strawberry leaf, dried strawberries, dried pineapple, dried cinnamon apples, and dried plums.

Come up with a name that is perfect, and you will get the perfect reward. FREE TEA!

If I choose the name you suggest then you will get 1 oz. of any tea that I have available in my Etsy shop. Not everyone has the same tastes, so if green tea is not your cup of tea I want to make sure you get something appealing to you!

Ah so exciting! Who doesn’t like free tea, and who doesn’t like some contact with their customer base!

Side note: I took my mom some tea the other day, and stopped to get her a tea infuser for my loose leaf. Of course we both ended up with a new infuser by the time I left the store; Target, i.e. Heaven.

IMG_5884When starting out drinking loose leaf I was blessed with gifts from Teavana, which included the PerfecTea Maker. I have used the mesh balls, cute little infusers, a coffee press, and so on. The reason I liked the PerfecTea Maker, and honestly all of the Teavana infusers I have purchased is due to the fineness of the holes. The mesh balls and other infusers provider too large of an area for the tea to escape. The finer the infuser the better for blends that contain smaller particles. Find a infuser you like, because it does make a difference. This new infuser is pretty nifty, and fine (PUN intended). It hold 18 oz., and when done steeping you can pull the infuser up without opening the container. Tea geeking!
