Has an angel come to you in a dream lately? If so, you may be dealing with some spiritual issues. Angels that turn up in dreams are believed by dream interpreters to be strong indicators of impending spiritual enlightenment and the need for spiritual nourishment. As spirits of the heavenly realms, angels represent the unconscious mind reaching out to the conscious self. Their wings are powerful symbols of transcendence over worldly troubles and the ability to accomplish great things. Interestingly, almost all cultures of the world have stories and myths of angels descending from the heavens in aid of humanity. Often these stories depict angels appearing during daily life, but more often than not the angels appear in dream form.
One of the more famous examples of an angel reaching out to encourage spiritual action involves St. Patrick, known best for the annual parade held in his honor. St. Patrick dreamt that an angel wanted him spread the good word throughout Ireland. He followed the angel's advice and is now celebrated the world over for his worldly deeds. (Can it be mere coincidence that the people of Ireland drink more tea per capita than any other nation on earth? We think not!)
So what do you think Angels themselves dream about? Well, before the creation of this tea, it's impossible to know. Nowadays we're certain that they dream about descending to earth to share a pot of this heavenly brew. An ethereal blend of black and green teas touched with sweet maple and fruit flavor, this is the tea to reach for when your spirit needs uplifting!

Making an amazing cup of tea requires several things. High quality tea, filtered or freshly drawn cold water, correct water temperature, time of infusion, and filters/infusers. Unfiltered water or too hot of water can ruin the best of teas. Always use filtered or freshly drawn cold water. Any flavor from water treatments or heavy minerals such as lime or calcium can taint the water. Brew at the ideal temperature. Too hot of water can scorch the leaves and produce a bitter brew. If you find that the tea is still bitter following the recommended brewing temperature, try lowering the brew temperature another 5 to 10 degrees. Use infusers that allow the tea leaves to fully expand and has full contact with the water. Ditch the tea bags. Know the steeping time for your tea. Too long of steeping can make your tea bitter and undesirable. Too short of time will make a weak tea. Don’t make tea in the microwave.
We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today’s water has been known to carry viruses, parasites and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illness. Cool the water to the ideal brewing temperature before brewing.
