If you have friends that are afraid to branch out into green teas, but their doctors and health advisors have been urging them to try - I have a lovely new green tea blend just for them. It's called White Light White Heat. The base is organic white peony tea and Maofeng green tea combined with cranberries, rosehips, hibiscus, orange and a hint of cinnamon. Unlike so many "holiday" blends, this one is light and clean and not over-flavored with fruits and spices. The delicate flavors of the tea leaves are the first notes you taste, followed by a light fruitiness and a very subtle taste of cinnamon. It's refined in flavor and will convert your friends trying to get on the green tea bandwagon. More and more studies are proving the benefits of this magical plant. Get your holiday orders in by 12.19.14 so they arrive on time.
House Spirits: A Series of Channeled Drawings by Coleman Stevenson
This new series of text and image works is the result of experiments in automatism, in allowing the self to become a vessel, receiving information from arational sources. Initial sketches for these pieces were composed in a state of increased receptivity, guided by a force some have term the unconscious, the psyche, the aether, or even a realm of spirits residing alongside the living world.
