Our July 2019 Tea of the Month is Blood Orange blended with Lemongrass! And if you're familiar with OBTC and our teas, you may notice that we use Lemongrass a LOT! It is found in some of our single blends, such as Honeysuckle Blossom Oolong and Irish Pu Erh; and we blend it with other teas, like Blood Orange (July 2019 Tea of the Month), Blueberry and Peppermint!
Lemongrass grows in many tropical and subtropical areas! In fact, I have had many guests visiting our stores tell me that they have Lemongrass growing in their backyards or in their kitchens! When added to a tea blend, this caffeine-free herb gives the blend a light citrus taste and softens some of the bolder or bitter tastes the accompanying tea may have. Lemongrass also has SO many health benefits! Keep reading to learn why we love Lemongrass so much! 👇

OBTC has recenty partnered with Gypsy Soul Kombucha, LLC. and now offers fresh, live kombucha available on tap in our stores! We are super excited about this partnership! Kombucha is a growing industry and many people that I know aren't familiar with what it is. I was able to talk with Gypsy Soul Kombucha, LLC.'s brew master, Justin Huffmon, about everything kombucha, and I hope to answer many of the questions our guests and readers might have
A chemical free laundry routine might be easier than you think!
Blueberry Tea has been a part of Old Barrel Tea Company since the beginning! It is full of dried blueberries and apple pieces, with some added tartness from the dried hibiscus! We love blending it with Lemongrass, Mountain Sunrise, and Wild Strawberry!
Last summer, we introduced Lavender Sage Lemonade, and it has quickly become a team favorite as well! We loved how Lavender Sage Lemonade blended so well with Tropical Black to create a tropical, fruity, floral and herbal OBTC Arnold Palmer!
We recently combined Blueberry and Lavender Sage Lemonade together - what a refreshing treat, right in time for summer! As you enjoy this blend, you taste blueberry and some hibiscus tartness, followed by lavender and sage!

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!
