Fall is a time where we slow down, take a breath and marvel in the beauty that surrounds us

“I sold my soul to the Autumn trees,
To quiet the woods and the chilly breeze
I yearn for the rain and a good book or two
Hot tea and a Sunday that I can sleep through
No longer need the Winters, nor the Springs or those Summers
I have fallen in love with all these Fall colors”

September’s Featured Tea Flight

Every SATURDAY from 11 am – 4 pm in September we will offer a flight of  Tea for just $10 a person! Our Flight of Tea allows you to belly up to our Tea Bar and sample product from each category we offer: a White, Green, Oolong, Black Tea, our Tisane AND top it off with a shot of Matcha!  Our menu changes each month to feature botanicals in season at the farm. Plus, you get a little Tea Education from one of our delightful Light of Day employees and take home a nice handout of the highlights on how to prepare each tea, & Matcha information including recipe.

  • TANGERINE – Tangerines are a tasty and refreshing citrus fruit packed with many nutritious compounds, including flavonoids, vitamin C, vitamin A, folate and potassium.
  • ORANGE –   Oranges are a healthy source of fiber, vitamin C, thiamine, folate, and antioxidants.

  • CARDAMOM – Cardamom may help lower blood pressure, most likely due to its antioxidant and diuretic properties.
  • VANILLA BEAN EXTRACT – Natural vanilla extract contains numerous antioxidants, including vanillic acid and vanillin. Antioxidants protect your body from damage from harmful components, such as free radicals and toxins.
  • CLOVE – Cloves contain fiber, vitamins and minerals, so using whole or ground cloves to add flavor to your food can provide some important nutrients, flavor and aroma.
  • RAW SUGAR – Raw sugar is a coarse-textured granulated sugar with a light amber color and sparkly appearance. Its sweet flavor is slightly caramel-like.
  • MAPLE SYRUP BITS – Maple syrup is a great source of manganese, a mineral that provides essential energy and antioxidants to the body and also boosts the immune system while reducing inflammation. These bits are from trees tapped here at our farm.

  • CHAMOMILE –  Chamomile has properties that may aid sleep, relaxation, and  digestion.
  • VANILLA BEAN EXTRACT – Vanilla beans have antioxidants that can help prevent cell and tissue breakdown, stimulate the body’s natural regrowth and eliminate free radicals.

This is a real treasure- so nurture yourself today with this “drink of the Samurai!” Be sure to “subscribe” to our newsletter so that we can send you HEALTH file and recipes which includes good information about this special and historic drink.

Matcha, is a product that we could grow here at Light of Day Organics (because Tea is one of the botanicals that we grow) but we do not currently own the equipment necessary to de-vein or to grind the Tencha leaf into a fine powder within the laboratory setting it requires. Therefore, we rely on other certified organic farmers around the globe to grow and process this remarkable product for us. Because of concerns in the news lately re. radiation and heavy metal contamination, each batch of Matcha and the soils they are grown in are tested thoroughly to ensure that we are all enjoying the highest quality, safest matcha available to us today! We hope that you enjoy this product as much as we do!

We do offer our Matcha in CAPSULES too!  Two capsules once a day is equivalent to the 1/2 tsp suggested serving size.  These are great for those of use that may not always have the time to prepare the Matcha in a smoothie form.
