Pecan Pie Pu Erh
Start your day right.

WHY WE LOVE WAKING UP TO THIS BLEND:
The magic combination L-theanine, EGCG, and caffeine makes traditional Camellia sinensis teas (white, green, black, oolong, and pu erh) both stimulating for mental alertness and, simultaneously, relaxing: this means you can get a boost and increase mental focus while combatting stress.
THE SECRET TO FEELING GREAT?
SLEEP MORE. WORRY LESS.
DON'T BE ASHAMED: SLEEP IS YOUR SECRET WEAPON
While the old guard of the professional world stood firm behind efforts to avoid rest for the sake of productivity, studies are proving that sleep is just what we need to be our most productive, creative, and highest contributing selves.
Sleep, of course, keeps you physically healthy, but it also primes our brain for logical reasoning and problem solving, innovation and creativity, and collaborative and pro-social behavior.
You're going to do great this week: kick it in to gear this Monday by practicing these sleep habits:
ATTN: NEW MOM'S
Leche De Mama

SPICE UP A WHOLESOME DISH:

1. Sauté or bake cauliflower & diced onions in olive oil with Dana's All-Purpose seasoning (sea salt, black pepper, cayenne, garlic, & New Mexico Chile).
2. Top with pine nuts, a dollop of greek yogurt & fresh squeezed lemon.
So simple & wholesome, but SO GOOD!
THIS WEEKEND IS REALLY SPECIAL…
OBTC IS 5 YEARS OLD!
Our little tea co started in the mountain town of Ruidoso, NM. We sold antiques on consignment, 10 types of tea, and 3 types of honey… we really hoped the community would like what we were offering. At this time, we spent much of the day hoping someone would visit the shop and tried not to act too excited when we had guests. When someone made a purchase, we couldn't be thankful enough: every transaction was an affirmation that we were providing something people actually wanted and that we might be able to grow in this community.
OUR TEA OF THE MONTH:
MATE + PU ERH
MOCHA MATE + STRAWBERRY HAZELNUT PU ERH = 🤤
toasted maté tea, dark chocolate chips, marigold flowers, & natural flavors
Strawberry Hazelnut Pu Erh:

WIND DOWN & COZY UP:
Relax. You deserve it.
American Wildflower is not strictly a bed time tea, but it is one of our favorites to drink at the end of the day to help boost relaxation, to soothe a tired body, and to get into the right mindset for a peaceful night's sleep. It is refreshing with mint, sweet with vanilla, bright with lemongrass, and rounded out with earthy and floral chamomile notes. We love this blend served hot with a spoonful of Mesquite Honey.

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!
