Alana's Favorites + Tips and Tricks


This month we are shining the spotlight on Alana, one of our Cloudcroft store team members! Alana's favorite part about working for OBTC is talking with guests about tea. Alana has a lot of knowledge about medicinal herbs, so when a guest gets to learn about the health benefits and origins of tea from Alana, it's an extra special experience! Alana's kindness and intelligence shines and we love her for it!

Check out Alana's favorite tea.


Pineapple Upside Down Coffee Cake

This blend is reminiscent of dipping a piece of pineapple upside down cake into a cup of coffee! It is appealing to a sweet tooth, but also boosts digestion, energy and immunity.

Alana sips on this tea while reading her foraging field guide or drawing. ✨

Make this tea the way Alana does!


To make the perfect brew, Alana suggests adding two full teaspoons of the blend to 8 ounces of water and steeping for 7 minutes. She sweetens it with our Salt Cedar Honey and adds a splash of oat milk.

She suggests trying it iced with tapioca pearls too!

Alana loves this tea because it tastes desserty without being super rich.

Get your cookin' on Alana's favorite seasonings.
