A little bit about some of our ingredients:
Lemongrass: This tall, bunching grass does not typically winter over in Oregon, but we grow it as an annual on our farm. It has many health benefits, including calming, detoxifying and stress relief. Some of its naturally occurring vitamins and minerals include C, A, magnesium and iron
Calendula: This flower is also known as a pot marigold, but is actually not related to the common marigold. It ranges in color from all shades of yellow and orange to pink. It is known to containBeta Carotene, Vitamin A, C and E, antioxidants and be soothing to the stomach.
No preservatives - All Natural Ingredients
All of our teas are loose leaf and we recommend steeping for between 4 and 6 minutes. Works extremely well as ice tea too!
GARDEN HUCKLEBERRY SYRUP
(available seasonally December-February)
We grow this amazing fruit from seed each year and it produces dark purple berries about the size of a blueberry that ripen in the late fall and are best harvested after the first frost. It is actually not related to the wild evergreen huckleberry that is common in the Northwest, but is instead in the Nightshade family (along with peppers and tomatoes). This all-purpose culinary syrup is delicious served in cocktails, splashed into champagne, mixed into smoothies, as a breakfast syrup or as a meat glaze, especially over porkk or chicken.
