MOUNTAIN SPRING HERBALS
HERBAL TEA CSA
Mountain Spring Herbals~ Tina Finneyfrock, Master Herbalist

 

  

How About:

~ A monthly tea delivered to your door for a year

~ A tea formulated by a practicing Herbalist

~ A tea from organically grown plants

~ A tea formulated to fit the seasons & the unique nuance of each month

~ a tea that can help reconnect you to the pleasure of taking a few moments every day, of reflection and calm.....with your hands wrapped around a warm, health filled cup

If all this sounds appealing, please join Mountain Spring Herbals new--Herbal Tea CSA.

Here at Mountain Spring Herbals, we have a nice climate  that provides burdock, hawthorn,  and dandelion, lemon balm, mints, nettles, all the culinary herbs, elderberries and flowers, roses, cedar, pine, lavender, chamomile, chicory,  calendula, scented geraniums, red clover, raspberry and strawberry leaves, a multitude of  plants, roots, barks--wild and cultivated.  Individually, some of these plants make fine simple teas, but the art is in the mixing of a few or several flavors and properties together into a tasty and healthful brew.  

   

How does It Work?

 A CSA(Community Supported Agriculture) is an increasingly popular format for consumers to contract with growers. The customer pays a set and fair fee (less than retail value)- up front, while the grower plants, tends, harvests and sells the bounty from their land. Usually, CSAs operate on a seasonal or year long contract. Fees are paid in advance to allow the grower to dedicate the needed time to shepherd crops successfully. But, also, customers paying in advance keep costs down for themselves and the grower.  If I know, ahead of time, how much I need to plant, harvest, how much packaging/labels to order, then my business is...more sustainable for me, the grower...more affordable for you!!

 

What Is Included?

Depending upon your option choice. Please see options below)

 

 ~ 3 oz. of an organic tea blend every month ( or--- a tonic tea once every 3 months, + two additional organic seasonal, herbal products, once every 3 months ~ an informational flyer with interesting seasonal or monthly tidbits and directions and ideas for using your teas (they don't always have to be just for drinking!!)
