            EDUCATIONAL INFO. FOR "Enlightened White"

White Tea Leaves and Buds:  White tea is packed with polyphenols, which have antioxidant benefits. They help reduce chronic inflammation by protecting the body against damage from free radicals.

Tangerine: Tangerines can help maintain a healthy blood pressure.  Tangerines are packed with potassium and a low content of sodium.

Orange:  The antioxidant vitamin C, when eaten in its natural form (as in an orange) or applied topically, can help to fight skin damage caused by the sun and pollution, reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin texture. Vitamin C plays a vital role in the formation of collagen, the support system of your skin.

Lotus Petal:  Stress Lotus flower tea is relaxing, soothing, sedative, and helps with anxiety… and bringing about a peaceful feeling.

100% Certified Organic Ingredients:  Green Tea, Orange, Apple, Pear, Mango, Rose Hips, Hibiscus, Calendula


Blender’s Notes: This is a Mango and Citrus Green Tea, with a Sri Lankan Biodynamic base that was hand- blended to completion with the intent of supporting generation of everything from fresh ideas to healthy new cells. It’s all happening in this 2nd Chakra center….we hope you feel inspired!

Remember when ordering loose teas, that there are approximately 200 servings per pound (or that 1 oz. of loose leaf tea or tisane makes 15-25 servings)
EDUCATIONAL INFO. FOR "Happy Spleen Green"

Green Tea:  Compounds in green tea can improve brain function and make you smarter.

Orange:  The fiber, potassium, vitamin C and choline content in oranges all support heart health.

Apple: Apples contain pectin, a type of fiber that acts as a prebiotic. This means it feeds the good bacteria in your gut.

Pear:  Fighting free radicals, pears contain high levels of antioxidants, including vitamin C and K, and copper. These chemicals mop up free radicals, protecting our cells from the damage they can cause.

Mango:  Mango is low in calories yet high in nutrients — particularly vitamin C, which aids immunity, iron absorption and growth and repair.

Rose hips:  Preliminary research indicates that rose hip may help prevent type 2 diabetes, particularly in people with risk factors such as obesity and high blood pressure.

Hibiscus:  Interestingly, studies have shown that hibiscus may promote liver health and help keep it working efficiently.

Calendula:  There are also some anti-spasmodic properties of calendula that are also taken advantage of by many people. If you suffer from a nervous system disorder, have painful cramping in relation to menstruation or some other type of spasmodic condition, adding calendula to your diet may be beneficial.



100% Certified Organic Ingredients:  Oolong Tea, Red Top Clover.

Blender’s Notes: Peachy-notes. A deeply oxidized wirely Oolong Tea that is naturally caffeinated. Blended with our certified Demeter Biodynamic Red Top Clover Blossoms. This is one of our favorite teas for summertime iced tea

Remember when ordering loose teas, that there are approximately 200 servings perpound (or that 1 oz. of loose leaf tea or tisane makes 15-25 servings)

EDUCATIONAL INFO. FOR "Bumble Blossom Oolong"

Oolong Tea: Researchers in China studied the relationship between drinking oolong tea and cholesterol levels, as high cholesterol levels can be associated with an increased risk for heart disease.

Red Top Clover:  Red clover's brightly colored flowers contain many nutrients including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin C.

100% Certified Organic Ingredients:  Assam Black Tea, Peppermint, Cacao Nibs

Blender’s Notes: This fine tea is such a nice compliment at the end of a meal. Mildly minty and paired with sweet chocolate notes from the cacao nibs. This tasty Assam-based tea is a real “picker-upper”, and is one of our favorites in the afternoon when we need a little lift. (YUM!).

Remember when ordering loose teas, that there are approximately 200 servings perpound (or that 1 oz. of loose leaf tea or tisane makes 15-25 servings)


Assam Black Tea:  The top benefits of Assam tea include boosting cardiovascularhealth, preventing certain cancers, improving cognitive function, and speeding the metabolism, among many others.

Peppermint:  Peppermint may relieve digestive symptoms, such as gas, bloating and indigestion.

Cacao Nibs:  Unlike many chocolate products, cacao nibs are naturally low in sugar. They’re also a good source of fiber, protein, and healthy fats — nutrients that help promote feelings of fullness.

100% Certified Organic Ingredients:  Red Rooibos, Blueberry, Cornflower, and Vanilla Bean Extract

Blender’s Notes: This tisane was originally blended as a Father’s Day gift for Angela’s Blueberry-farming Dad, Bob. Creamy and fresh. Rooibos base. Tastes like a fresh blueberry scone. Naturally Caffeine-free.

Remember when ordering loose teas, that there are approximately 200 servings perpound (or that 1 oz. of loose leaf tea or tisane makes 15-25 servings)


EDUCATIONAL INFO. FOR "Blueberry Blessing"

Red Rooibos:  Rooibos tea contains vital minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and alpha hydroxyl acid. As with most true teas and herbal teas, it also contains high levels of vitamin C along with powerful antioxidants such as aspalathin that offer extensive health benefits.

Blueberry:  The blueberry is a very popular berry. It is low in calories but high in fiber, vitamin C and vitamin K.

Cornflower:  The plant’s medicinal value lies primarily in its anti-inflammatory properties. Taken internally as an herbal tea, it is thought to aid in soothing stomach ulcers, while rinsing with the tea is used to speed the healing of sores or bleeding gums in the mouth.

Vanilla Bean Extract:   The vanillin found in vanilla extract may have cholesterol-lowering benefits, according to a study published in 2013 in the "Indian Journal of Experimental Biology."

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!



I don't think the farm is capable of taking a bad picture.  The top picture is just one of the many beautiful views you will experience while strolling around the grounds.  There are many flowers currently in bloom, starting the with the Powerfully stunning Poppy, then below to the left is Creeping Thyme, and in bottom right corner is Perennial Geranium.

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”
