Calling all tea lovers and herb enthusiasts!
Ever wonder how we make our medicinal tea blends?? Want to feel more confident in the bulk herb section and learn how to blend the tea of your dreams?? We've got you.
In this hands-on workshop, we'll go over a variety of nutritive herbs and the body systems they support. Discuss common uses, preparations and known interactions. Share some tasty tips that we've picked up along and a herbal tea story or two. Go over an herb menu and guide you through the process of making your tea. Each participant will receive a recipe card and a batch of their very own custom tea blend to take home.
No experience necessary, herbal tea making can be for anyone!

Hosted by: Reede Haroian LaRose (they/them) an autistic nonbinary trans clinical herbalist, parent and shopkeeper at Community Care Apothecary in Florence, MA. They weave over a decade of experience as a queer & trans centered full spectrum doula, pelvic health therapist and former somatic bodyworker into their herbal support practice. Reede is a big fan of integrative health care, meeting people where they're at and introducing safe, nourishing herbs that support the overall well being of folks in community. You'll often find Reede pining over their cats Enough + Ella, smothering plant babies in the garden and talking about all things Armenian.
