It’s January 2019! Happy New Year! Many people love to start fresh, get a new perspective, be healthier, strive to do better in the new year! Since we at OBTC love all things tea, we combined our White Peach and Cleanse teas in January of last year, to provide a tea option to help us cleanse and detox for the new year (or anytime really)! We love the blend so much that we continued blending, sampling and serving it throughout the year, and we want all tea lovers to know about it!
We love our Cleanse tea, simply for what the name implies: it helps cleanse and detox our body! Cleanse is great specifically for
What is it about this tea, though, that helps us achieve such a cleanse/detox? It’s the blend! Let’s dive a little deeper into how each ingredient helps detoxify our bodies.
Healthy Heart Seasoning is OBTC's January 2019 Spice of the Month! It is our salt-free, all purpose seasoning! But the lack of salt is not the only reason why this spice is good for you! The ingredients that make up this blend are good for you too!
Both the Chocolate Orange Pu Erh and Horchata Rooibos are delicious, staff and customer favorites on their own! But when we bring these two teas together in a blend, the flavor is incredible! While steeping the two together, your little tea corner is warm with the cinnamon and chocolate flavors! These two teas bring a lot of great health benefits to you in one cup as well!
(Cook and Prep Time: 1 hour, chef: Campbell)
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 teaspoons Healthy Heart Seasoning
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons shortening
1 cup buttermilk (chilled)
Although my absolute favorite teas are the Pu Erh Teas, when I am wanting a caffeine free option, my go-to is a Rooibos Tea, commonly known as the “red tea!" These teas are great anytime throughout the day, hot or iced, and have a wide range of health benefits associated with them!
The holidays are my favorite time of year! I love time spent with family, the lights, the music, baking, and yes! - I love buying gifts for my loved ones! That can definitely be easier said than done though! Some of my family is super easy to shop for and some are a little tougher! If you have a tea lover in your family, whether they are already a tea lover or if they're about to become a tea lover (😉), here is a little fool-proof gift guide to give you a little help this season!
Hello! My name is Maggie! I am a Marine Scientist that was moved to the New Mexican desert with my family by the Air Force! That move was never in my plan, even in my wildest dreams, and I felt lost in the desert for awhile! Meeting the founding owners of Old Barrel Tea Company and falling in love with the store allowed me to find an oasis in the desert! I had no idea what loose leaf tea was, but now I believe in this company and the product! I hope that I can extend some of the love and knowledge with all of our followers and readers!
