Description: Our Tea of the Week for the Week of August 5, 2013
Well folks, I have been busier than a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest lately, working on piecing together all the various bits of our upcoming crowd-funding campaign to bring back Zoomdweebie’s Tea Bar. I confess, I am a little behind on orders, but will be caught up soon.

My friend Betty here was kind enough to help me out with creating this week’s tea of the week, because I think my brain went on strike.

Well, she said she wanted something fruity, something light and refreshing and something calming. Bit of a tall order, but I think y’all will agree that we hammered out the perfect answer.

BetTEA’s Blend is a honeybush base with mostly organic pear flavors, with just a hint of vanilla, an even smaller hint of chamomile and some blue cornflowers to make it pretty. I have a feeling this one is going to go fast.
