Step Two : Prepare your bath time beverage

The box of 15 includes 5 bags of each – Fruit Tea, Green Tea, and Black Tea, all made with Wild Maine Blueberries. Whole leaf, all natural, compostable, plant based teabags with an extra long string are perfect for travel tumblers and today’s larger mugs.

Seaweed Tea, kicked up a notch

Bring your tea time to the next level. Get yourself a bottle of bourbon from Split Rock Distillery and add a splash to your Cup of Sea Maine Seaweed Tea. We like the Sea Smoke black tea for it’s smoky-sweet aroma and a rich, woodsy flavor – like camping by the ocean. Or if your bath is pre-bedtime and you’re wanting to avoid caffeine, try the Sailor’s Cure All for an aromatic blend of spicy ginger and earthy turmeric, plus soothing bladderwrack.
