Backyard Patch Herbs
Backyard Patch Black Teas Blends are a special combination of high quality black tea and flavorful herbs. They are hand-crafted blends which infuse black teas with a wonderful combination of flavors only available with fresh dried herbs and spices.
Many of these blends were first crafted by request for Museums, Tea Shops and Women's Club events as a custom tea sold only at the event. They are available here as a special offering and proceeds from items sold that benefit a museum or charity will be given to that organization.
We have always blended our teas for taste first, crafting blends that bring out the unique flavors of herbs. If you are interested in a custom blend for your organization, please do not hesitate to contact me via Conversations.
Each Loose Tea is packaged in a 3" x 4" zip-seal pouch with about 1/2 cup by volume which can range from 1 to 3 ounces. Always enough tea for at least 12 to 15 cups or more of brewed tea. We recommend you transfer from the zip-seal to a jar or tin for long-term storage.
Like all blends from the Backyard Patch we guarantee an 18 to 24 month shelf-life, because we use only the freshest herbs. All Backyard Patch herbs are raised organically and are chemical and pesticide free.
For the price listed you can choose from any ONE of the listed varieties.
