Queen Mab's Dream Tea
Queen Mab's Dream Tea
"She is the fairies' midwife, and she comes
In shape no bigger than an agate stone
On the forefinger of an alderman,
Drawn with a team of little atomi
Over men’s noses as they lie asleep.
Her wagon spokes made of long spinners' legs,
The cover of the wings of grasshoppers,
Her traces of the smallest spider’s web,
Her collars of the moonshine’s watery beams,
Her whip of cricket’s bone, the lash of film,
Her wagoner a small gray-coated gnat,
Not half so big as a round little worm
Pricked from the lazy finger of a maid
Her chariot is an empty hazelnut
Made by the joiner squirrel or old grub,
Time out o' mind the fairies' coachmakers.
And in this state she gallops night by night
Through lovers' brains, and then they dream of love"
Queen Mab's Dream Tea bears the name of the Faery Queen first referenced in Romeo and Juliet but known by many other names including Titania in British Myth and Legend. Like the Faery Queen, this tea is filled with sweet smelling Lavender like the hue of her ethereal eyes, chamomile for the golden down of her tresses and rose resembling the blush of her cheeks and curve of her lips. It is backed up with Passionflower and Skullcap to lull you into sleep and carry off those nighttime anxieties that leave us tossing and turning instead of wandering the paths of Dreamland. Lastly, we add Blackberry Leaf, reminiscent of the bramble bushes that course over Faery hills and mounds.
Brew a cuppa of Queen Mab's and combine it with our Queen Mab's Dream Cream as you wind down during your bedtime ritual. Rub the salve on your pulse points or under your nose to take in the peppermint, lavender and rose scent and breathe in the intoxicating steam drifting off your warm cup of Queen Mab's Dream Tea. Enjoy these products as a boxed set or individually and you'll find them becoming a cornerstone of your bedtime routine.
Ingredients: Skullcap, Blackberry Leaf, Passionflower, Lavender, Chamomile, and Red Rose Petals.
*Please Note* Skullcap is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Please consult your doctor before consuming any herbs and double-check the ingredient list to make sure you aren't allergic to any herbs used in this tea or any of our teas.
This tea is packaged in accordance with Texas Cottage Food Laws and uses all food-safe herbs and tea. We are not medical professionals or doctors so none of our products are intended to treat or diagnose. There are no known allergens in this tea but there is always a risk that you are individually allergic to one of the ingredients. Because of this, we list every ingredient we include and ask that you read the ingredient list and speak to your doctor about any contraindications with your medical regimen or if you are pregnant or nursing.
What you receive with your order: 6 oz, 4 oz, 1 oz or 1/2 oz of a loose leaf food-grade black tea, a 100% cotton muslin reusable tea bag, and a small, dishwasher safe spoon (with the 6 and 4 oz sizes or our tea sampler boxes.) The spoons vary in colour from silver to gold to copper and are chosen at random. We urge you to wash out the muslin tea bag and re-use it over and over for your loose leaf tea, bath tea or other uses. As for the packaging, the kraft bag we use at this time is not compostable but we are working on finding the perfect packaging in the future that will be better for our planet. However, the aluminum tin we use for the sample size could be used to store more tea or any other crafty home uses you can come up with.
What a beautiful handcrafted tea, both to drink and to look at. A riot of flowers and herbs. Queen Mab will take you to dreamland in style.
I struggle a lot with turning my brain off at night and this tea has been the perfect thing to end my day with. I’ve tried many different night time teas and this one is by far my favorite!
