I’m following my dreams and starting a line of teas infused with Reiki energy! I previously supported my art and activism through a small law practice. I moved to California, am retiring from the practice of law and working to support my art and activism with a line of Reiki infused tea blends.
Teas are packaged to order and the current turn around time on order fulfillment is between one day and two weeks. (In some cases I will need to restock tea, herbs and the containers to fill the orders, but mostly I have everything ready to go and will custom pack for your order.)
Each dose of Reiki infused tea is $1 when bought by the tin, the sampler pack is $1.41 per dose. Each tin of loose leaf tea makes at least 20 cups and costs $20. The sampler pack has all seven flavors with enough to make at least 3 cups of each flavor for $30.
Reiki Tea flavor offerings:
Each of the individual certified organic herbs and ingredients are infused with Reiki energy and each blend is infused with Reiki energy. I don’t know your personal health history and can’t make any health claims. Always consult with your physician for health information!
Self Love Tea
Caffeinated. Pu-erh is a type of tea that is fermented rather than dried. The result is a more full-bodied tea with richer flavor and darker in color. I blend the Pu-erh with rose petals, citrus peel, and bergamot. Rose petals balance the heart and mind and soothe emotions. Making yourself tea is a self-loving act; making tea with the intention of loving yourself and the support of rose petals kicks the effectiveness into high gear!
Bevin’s Earl Grey
Caffeinated. Black tea leaves are blended with a small amount of Rhodiola rosea, a root traditionally used to fight fatigue and improve energy in folks depleted by stress. Flavored with bergamot oil like a traditional Earl Gray, this tea goes beyond the standard renewal of the traditional Earl Gray.
Find Your Chill
Herbal tisane (the common parlance is “tea” but actually when they are herbs it’s a tisane). This is my calming blend. Chamomile and lavender are standards in the calming herbal market, but did you know that catnip has a soothing effect on humans? I find it really takes down my stress levels. For this reason, catnip is also great at soothing upset stomachs! I blend it with lemon peel, orange peel and other natural citrus flavors to add deliciousness. My serving suggestion to take the flavor up a notch is to add lemon juice (bonus if it’s fresh lemon from a neighbor’s tree).
Herbal tisane. When you are having Big Feelings–anger, hurt, frustration, sadness, grief–the only way out is through. My Feelings tea is a blend of oatstraw, rose petals and hawthorne berries to support soothing and strengthening the nerves and emotional healing. My Find Your Chill calming herbs–lavender, chamomile and catnip are also added to help soothe tension. To this I add natural tart flavorings, including elderberries, rosehips and hibiscus, to acknowledge that having feelings is sometimes tart. The blend is delicious and a great way to step back and support feeling your feelings.
Herbal tisane. This was my favorite to blend as I am a really picky mint tea drinker and I’ve really nailed it with this one. I blend spearmint and peppermint, both soothe digestion. Added to it is a touch of sweet blackberry leaves, rosemary, rosehips, and chicory root. Chicory root, which you might know it from the addition to the classic New Orleans-style coffee, rounds out the mint with an earthy flavor. It’s great as a standard hot tea and also wonderful iced. Another serving suggestion–I like to give it a long steep (say, 30 minutes or so) and then add ice and your fav dairy or non-dairy milk for a delicious iced tea latte situation.
Herbal tisane. Hibiscus, which is great for hydration and cooling, and coconut, which is great for being delicious. Includes Nettles, which is an all-purpose herb and anti-inflammatory.
Herbal tisane. Rooibos is an African Red Bush tea that is known to hold flavors exceptionally well. Rooibos is a medicinal wunderkind–great at treating skin conditions and fighting free radicals. I blend this with citrus flavors to create a delicious tea suitable to any time of day.

If you have questions about the teas, email me queerfatfemme at gmail dot com.
Five years ago I started my blog’s web series the Lesbian Tea Basket, where I rate and review tea and reclaim tea parties for lesbians. (Lesbians have stereotypically been drinkers of teas and people who use herbal medicine. This stereotype is grounded in real life, I come by my passion for tea, herbs and energy healing honestly.)
Producing that web series helped me develop my appreciation for tea and my appreciation turned into a passion and obsession. Once I became Reiki certified I knew I was called to transmit healing through tea blends.
I want to get my healing in as many hands as possible, but I need to do a lot of work to get there! Graphics, photographs, website, packaging development, new flavors, all kinds of feminist wisdom and lesbian overtones.
As I develop this business I’m selling my tea blends through pre sales on my blog.
Each pre-sale will help me hit a new financial goal for development. My first pre-sale in February 2016 supplemented my tuition to B-School, an awesome online business school helping me create a roadmap for my tea business development. Future pre-sales will help me pay graphic designers to design my packaging, pay for the website, pay for supplies, developing tea bags, baskets, tea recipes and more!
Don’t want to buy tea and just want to donate to my business development? Thank you so much!!!
