Settle down by the green, family, and make yourself a cup of Glory Ann Boggs' brew. Take care now, of who may come calling after dark in these woods...
Sense Notes: Woodsy | Herbaceous | Comforting
Inspired by the rich tapestry of stories and world of Old Gods of Appalachia, this blend is made in collaboration with the eldritch horror podcast! Taken straight from the roots, this herbal tea blend looks to the granny magic of Appalachia's past and the storylines from Old Gods of Appalachia Season 2: In the Pines and Build Mama a Coffin. This brew would settle nicely in the cupboards down at Boggs Holler, knowing Glory Ann Boggs' use of lemon balm in her teas.
This blend is rich and earthy, full of the good herbs of the green woods that would be found growing all over Appalachia. It wouldn't be a proper tribute to those who walk in the shadows without a twist, now would it? This herbal blend brews a lovely red, slowly taking over the cup as it steeps on like blood spilled on the green. Curious enough to stop by for a spell and take a sip?
As an herbal tea blend, I would recommend an infusion of 1-2 tablespoon of loose tea per 8 oz of hot water and infusing for at least 5 minutes, but it can easily and deliciously go for longer. The flavors and scent will change the longer it steeps, so be sure to take some time while your brew infuses to experience the journey.
Lemon balm†, beet root, burdock root†, elderflower, nettle†, rosemary†, and peppermint†.

Old Gods of Appalachia is an eldritch horror anthology podcast set in the darkest mountains in the world. Our world is an Alternate Appalachia, where these mountains were never meant to be inhabited.
Long before anyone lived in these hills, beings of immeasurable darkness and incomprehensible madness were entombed here. It was during this bygone age, when the Appalachians towered much higher and more menacing than the gentle slopes and ridges we know today, that they were conscripted after a great battle to serve as the final prison for those dark forces. But of course, time marches inexorably on. Eons passed and the walls of the prison begin to wear thin. And Things that slumbered soundlessly below for millennia began to stir and become restless.
They began to call to those who would hear them.
To dig. To seek and find. To follow and serve. To keep this dark and bloody land for themselves and their masters.
There are two sizes available: a 2 oz by volume tea tin, and a 3.75 oz by volume glass jar
