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.

HERE ARE A FEW EASY TIPS TO HELP YOU ALONG IN YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY THIS NEW YEAR:
1. It's not about cutting anything out: it's about what you add! Our herbalist and master blender is a fitness nut! One of her tips to achieving healthy nutrition is to eat all the veggies on your plate first. Committing to the good stuff may help to shift your attention and cravings away from less nutritional options. This can be metaphorically translated to how we treat our refrigerator as well: buy more veggies + eat more veggies = eat less junk
Ringing in a new year means new beginnings and endings for many. It's the beginning of a new year, and this year it is the beginning of a new decade as well! We have a lot of great things planned for our little family tea company in 2020, and hope that you'll be excited to participate with us in all of our new adventures, and that you take our teas and other products on some of yours! Read below and learn about our tea, spice, and essential oil of the month!
A TEA WE PLAN TO DRINK ALL YEAR: PU ERH
IT IS EARTHY, HAS DEPTH, AND IT IS BEAUTIFULLY AGED: WE ASPIRE TO BE MORE LIKE PU ERH AND RESEARCH SHOWS IT MIGHT BE THE BEST THING TO HELP US.
Sometimes you need a little kick to carry you into the weekend… Check out our favorite ways to get the boost!
Try this for a week…
Get sunshine EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. It is hard to be motivated to go outside when it is so cold: trust us, we get it. However, it is absolutely worth bundling up and getting outside to get your dose of vitamin D from the sun! This will help to uplift your mood and keep you healthy during a season when many people experience feelings of seasonal depression.
Stay active: stretch, dance, do yoga, or anything else you can do to keep your muscles feeling warm and alive in the cold weather! You don't have to designate a special time for this: try stretching out your back or legs while folding laundry, dance and wiggle your way around your house when cooking or tidying, or try squeezing in a light workout during a time you'd normally be seated on the couch (like while reading a book or watching a movie).
Schedule a friend date: this time of year we spend A LOT of time with our family and significant others. Take time to relax with a friend you haven't seen in a while: it might offer you a refreshing perspective and give you a necessary break from your loved ones so you can enjoy them more when you're around them. Space is a good thing and maintaining friendships is something you'll never regret!
THERE ARE ALSO MANY HERBS THAT HELP TO NATURALLY ELEVATE YOUR MOOD! TRY CONSUMING MORE TEAS WITH THE FOLLOWING…
Ginseng: Our traditional tea, JADE GINSENG OOLONG, is a wonderful treat with ginseng! This blend can help to increase mental focus during the workday and to improve your overall mood.
Lavender, Lemon Balm, & Rosehips: We have many lavender blends to choose from but one of our favorite combinations that has all three of these ingredients is LAVENDER SAGE LEMONADE WITH BLUEBERRY. It makes an amazing iced or hot blend and has a natural sweetness so you can go with or without honey!
Milk Thistle: Our Cleanse Tea has milk thistle and it is a great tea for anyone looking to detox after the holiday season! This blend has recently become a topic of discussion for our family and team because one of our friends lost 30 pounds last year drinking IRISH PU ERH BLENDED WITH CLEANSE. We're sort of all thinking we might have to try this…
Happy tea time friends! Stay warm!

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!
