A set of three shiny crystal night sky themed hairpieces. Wear them all together to keep your hair up all day long, or use them as scarf clips, button hole decor, tie pins, hat pins, handbag decor... Or use several sets to turn your hair into a galaxy :D
I'm super impressed with these, I have super fine hair which usually escapes from curvy grips in seconds, but these really do work, and hold in a style for many hours. I'm so impressed I decided to stock them :)
When putting the stars into (or taking them out of) your hair, feel for the curvy grip end with your thumb and open them up as much as you can while you slide them. As I say, from experience they're really quite strong so they don't just slide in (or out!) too easily like the cheap ones do.

A pack of empty, natural coloured cotton tea bags with a cotton drawstring. Fill them with loose tea, dried fruits, flowers, spice and herb blends for cooking, or make your own mulled wine or bouquet garni. Great for safe storage of small items and gifts too.
Free from plastics, not bleached, and made from renewable cotton. They are re-usable!
Remember, to make these someone somewhere has had to:
and finally sew it,
so use them for your tea as many times as you can!
Just turn them inside out with your thumbs, shake out the lea leaves into your food recycling or compost, and rinse. When they're all used up, you can compost with a clear conscience.
A beautiful blown glass double-wall gravity mug, called so because they make drinks appear to float within the cup.
Double wall insulation means your hot drinks stay hot for longer, and you can hold this mug however you like, because the outside will never get too hot to handle.
The invisible suspended-in-air look is stunning, just one look at the drinks you're making is sure to impress your guests! I often use these to view and photograph all the glorious colours of completed tea blends.
Lovely porcelain mugs from the Terra range by Genware - you might see these in nice rustic style cafes :)
Made using a technique called 'lost glaze' which gives each mug, cup and saucer a unique look. These are mug style shape in dusty pink. Slight indent on the handle, a little feature I love, gives them a real handmade vintage mug feel. Dishwasher and microwave safe!
I can also get small cups and saucers in the same style, lots of other colours too, wholesale welcome. Feel free to ask about other cups and saucer styles.
Pre-order for your favourite colours! No need to pre-purchase, just let me know what colour you'd like and I'll make sure to get some in.
A white and green tea blend with fruits. Balanced and refreshing, with ginger, raspberries, and acerola cherry pieces.
Chun Mee, Pai Mu Tan, dried ginger, candied ginger (ginger, raw cane sugar), natural flavouring, raspberry pieces, green Darjeeling, blue cornflowers, acerola cherry pieces. Certified organic.
50g Pai mu tan white tea. Naturally low in caffeine and high in tea satisfaction, white tea is the least oxidised of all teas. It has a gentle but well rounded tea taste.
It is savoured well by itself or with meals, as it compliments sweet and savoury. A great blending tea for new creations, too.
Brew at 60-70 degrees for best results (pour boiled water into a cool empty teapot, then onto your tea leaves).
New 2020 batch in stock now!
This is barley tea, a malty infusion of unhulled barley grains. We take premium local malted barley from Branthill farm at Wells-next-the-Sea, and roast it by hand here in Norwich.
Also called mugicha and boricha in Japan and Korea respectively, barley tea is made every day, and is often kept chilled from the fridge instead of cold water. It tastes familliar, and has flavours reminiscent of cereal grains, toasted nuts and oven fresh biscuits.
If you like a sweet drink then you'll be pleased to know it goes well with added sugar, and honey is even better.
Simmer 1 - 3 tablespoons in a small saucepan for a 2-3 minutes, then turn off the heat and allow a minute more to brew. It can be brewed to just a light golden colour, or all the way to deep coppery shade- barley tea is subject to your taste. Then strain it, pour it into a jug and chill , or return to the pan for reheating later.
Just turn on the pan again! Or alternatively use a microwave, it doesn't change the taste in the case of barley tea - 1 cup from cold should take about 1 minute on full power.
