Fall is here! The air is getting crisper, and we’re getting in the mood for cozying up to some hot cups of tea. Check out some of our favorite teas for October:
PUMPKIN SPICE CHAI Sips by SHAFA BLENDS
It’s that time of year - pumpkin pie, pumpkin patches, and of course, pumpkin spice chai! This handcrafted blend from Shafa Blends is delicious and aromatic, and includes fall favorite spices that bring warmth with each sip. Steep in hot milk and add raw honey for your very own Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte!

COCOA ROOIBOS Sips by CHAY
This delicious herbal blend includes antioxidant-rich rooibos and cocoa, anti-inflammatory sarsaparilla and soothing vanilla, protecting the body against free radicals while providing a robust non-caffeinated lift. Great for curling up with a cup of cocoa-y goodness while avoiding the calories of traditional hot cocoa!
CHAY is a creative design studio based in upstate NY that has evolved from a concept store in LA to a luxury holistic lifestyle brand. The CHAY tea collection was refined to create 8 essential teas that support the natural rhythm of daily life. They believe that drinking tea is a positive ritual that nurtures physical, mental and spiritual well-being. In collaboration with an organic tea atelier in Central California, their tea is sourced from organically certified plantations around the world that help reduce the carbon footprint.
We love that each of CHAY's teas is consciously crafted to work together and support certain functions as well as overall health and wellbeing - just like the rest of their loungewear and lifestyle goods, there is a deep connection to self care with a commitment to detail and function.

REISHI DETOX Sips by CHOICE ORGANIC TEAS
We love this delicious and purifying herbal mushroom blend! The herbal ingredients all work together to help with detoxing and replenishing: Reishi - the "mushroom of immortality" - boosts immunity. Dandelion and burdock root aid the liver in eliminating toxins. Moringa and nettle are nourishing and uplifting while cacao and carob lend flavorful chocolate notes and provide additional antioxidants.

LAVENDER MINT DREAM Sips by LEAF & TWIG
This herbal blend is truly like a dream! A relaxing way to unwind for the evening, this tisane contains no caffeine. It’s a calming blend of peppermint, lavender, chamomile, and honeyroo - a blend of rooibos and honeybush. The honeyroo softens the flavor of rooibos and allows the other herbs to really shine!
Based in Pittsburgh, Leaf & Twig was created by Certified Holistic Health Coach and Herbalist Melissa Vertosick as a way to share her enjoyment of tea with others and to provide a way to experience the benefits of herbs.
