Tea of the Week: Blue Lady

Congrats to Fay for winning last weeks Hermes Orange Green! This weeks tea is Blue Lady, the history of the Blue Lady is amazing! I had no idea that the Blue Lady was such a popular historical figure. I've been putting discontinued items in Clearance this week and will continue to do so for awhile. Next week we will start adding new products again! This is one of my favorite things to do, I get to test out new teas and accessories. Next week I will be adding something to replace our popular Brew n Touch, can't wait to show you.



Of all the recorded ghost sightings in North America, more people report seeing a blue lady than any other apparition. Often appearing only for brief moments these spirits materialize, show their hauntingly beautiful forms, and then disappear. There are many Blue Lady legends and this is one of more predominant ones. "The Blue Lady" of Moss Beach Distillery was featured on a episode of "Unsolved Mysteries".

According to the Coastside legend, some 72 years ago a beautiful young woman met a handsome dangerous man and fell in love. The naive young woman, always dressed in blue was already married but made many trips to the restaurant to be with her lover. She died in a violent automobile accident and it is here at Moss Beach you will now find her searching for her lover.

We’ve named this blended tea in honor of this representative of the spirit world because of its hauntingly sweet flavor. Passion fruit, grapefruit, orange, and grenadine all mix together to create a citrus flavor that is almost as delicate as the ghostly shadows of the spirits. The sweetness of the citrus mélange blends perfectly with the astringency of our high grown Ceylon tea. Brew yourself a pot, pour it hot, or over a glass full of ice and prepare to be mesmerized.

On a personal note, school started today! I'm so glad to be back to normal, summer vacation is nice but what a relief when Ethan goes back to school. Hubby is finally getting more hours at work, it's been a slim summer this year. Hopefully the economy will recover soon. Have a great week!

Well, I stated last week I like citrus flavored teas, so I'd be interested in this one too!

Haunting. I've never heard the story of the Blue Lady before. Still searching for her lover. How romantic. --Spirituality of Tea
