Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:

My name is Andrew McGregor and I have helped thousands of people through reading the tarot over the last 12 years. Reading the cards is my thing, my super power, and my passion. It is the tool I use to help people build the life they want to lead. When I read the cards for people I help them understand who they are, what they need to do to enjoy their lives and be successful and I help them plan how to manifest the life they want.


Simply put I can help you align your sacred self with your daily life.






I was introduced to The Hermits Lamp through social media when I saw Andrew list one of his teas so I sought out his teas to do a review.

I am thrilled to be able to introduce to you the teas he sent me.

The site is more of a tarot reading specialty store of supplies for a spiritual journey of awareness and making your space a better place, which includes an amazing variety of teas to help with the journey you are on!

Comments from website about this tea: 

Sometimes life can get you all worked up. This tea will help you chill out & even get to sleep.

Add 1 tsp. to 1 cup hot water. Pray while steeping for 10 minutes. Sweeten to taste. Herbs may interact with medicines or conditions consult physician first.


Brewed: Sweet tea with a light liquor.


Scent: Vegetal tea with a light sweet fragrance.


Flavor: The mint in this tea warms your mouth as it mixes with the notes of lavender to bring a peaceful calm over you. No sweetener is added but the peppermint brings it’s own sweet as our to the mix. Great tea to calm down with or to clear out your morning!



Okay seriously, the name of this tea says it all! Made me giggle. This is a more vegetal tea with a very sweet fragrance and a good tea to warm the soul and throat on a cold day or one of those mornings you just can’t seem to get your throat clear.


My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “7”.


Till next sip…
