Description

Colonial Era Remedies, Recreated!

Apothecaries of the 1700s were stocked with herbal brews, including a cough and cold remedy tea made from honey, horehound, and thyme. Our bestselling blend, a Colonial Headache Remedy Tea, combines lavender, rose flower, sage, and marjoram. First made in the 1500s, this brew was said to cure headaches.

Native Medicine and… Colonial Stress Relief?

European tradition was infused with Native American knowledge, as seen in our Native American Blend which combines dandelion leaf, ginger root, chickweed, and wild cherry bark. To relax, colonists relied on a mixture of mint and jasmine, a Sweet Bath. Enjoyed as a calming tea or as a fragrance in bathwater.

A Symbol of Self-Reliance

After the Boston Tea Party, colonists boycotted British tea and turned to their gardens and orchards to make their own herbal teas. Using delicious and authentic ingredients, we’ve brought back to life two varieties of Liberty Tea. Colonial Orchard contains strawberry leaf, apple, rose, chamomile, and marjoram. Colonial Garden is a blend of mint, blueberries, chamomile, and sage.
