Happy New Year friends! I hope you all had a great holiday season filled with love, joy, and relaxation! While 2020 was a year full of obstacles we were not expecting, we made it to a new year! We are hopeful 2021 will be full of positivity, health, new adventures, and of course, lots of tea.
With the new month comes new products of the month! Check them out below! 👇
Tea Blend of the Month: White Peach & Cleanse
WHITE PEACH & CLEANSE is earthy with a ripe peach flavor! It will help detoxify the organs, while helping the body resist oxidative damage. We like to drink this blend when we feel sluggish or unwell due to overindulgence in food or drink.
White Peach & Cleanse is blended with white tea, apricots, marigold flowers, milk thistle, burdock, green rooibos, cinnamon bark, peppermint leaves, dandelion root, lemon balm, and natural flavors. This low caffeinated blend is lovely served iced or hot, with a spoonful of honey!
Spice of the Month: Healthy Heart Seasoning
HEALTHY HEART SEASONING is a wonderful all purpose, salt-free seasoning! It is blended with cayenne, chervil, coriander, dill, fennel, garlic, onion, and paprika.
We used Healthy Heart Seasoning to make some Healthy Heart Salmon. Check out the recipe below!
Essential Oil Blend of the Month: The Immunity and Mood Booster
This month marks the season of new beginnings and fresh starts, so we put our noses together and came up with a trio essential oil blend that is super immune boosting, antibacterial, antiviral, and sparks an uplifting rush of motivation. The blend includes CEDARWOOD ATLAS ESSENTIAL OIL, LEMONGRASS ESSENTIAL OIL, and OREGANO ESSENTIAL OIL. The three oils can be used together or separately, but this month only, when you buy all three together you get 10% off the combo! This blend is warm, boldly herbaceous, fresh, and earthy. It is meant to enliven the senses and ground us at the same time, creating a perfect balance for the new year. Add this combination of oils to your diffuser, a hot shower, or ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER BRACELET! We recommend using 3 parts Lemongrass, 3 parts Cedarwood, and 1 part Oregano.
Have you heard about the Matcha Challenge??
On January 1st we are starting the Matcha Challenge - 1 cup of matcha each day for the entire month of January.
This time last year, Bailey, one the owners at OBTC, reached out to her mom Dana, who is a 3 time cancer survivor, and told her that if she would drink Matcha daily for a whole month, Bailey would too. Bailey described Matcha's cancer fighting abilities which is, obviously, the main reason she wanted Dana to try it out. Matcha is also known for positively affecting our mood, ability to focus, and long term neurological health. Matcha promotes healthy digestion and metabolism, and protects our body from the damaging effects of aging.
The challenge started with the two of them, then they looped the whole family in and convinced them to join the challenge... then the whole tea company, and then they decided to invite our customers to join in on the challenge as well!
By the end of the challenge our team reported feeling less stressed, more energized and focused, with healthier digestion, and, some, experienced weight loss.
Because we had such positive effects from the challenge, we decided to do the Matcha Challenge again to kick off 2021. We will be sharing recipes, as well as Matcha tricks and facts, throughout the month - stay tuned!
We hope you have a great start to your 2021, and that you get a chance to visit one of our locations or shop online to try some of our featured products. We hope you join us in the Matcha Challenge and invite some of your loved ones to join as well! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us!
