TALES & TEA
Sometime Stories for the Fully Fledged
Whimsical, tender, honey-sweetened medicines in manageable doses.
All goodness and sincerity without complications.
The Faerytale Apothecary quietly stepped out into the world at Beltane last year and it has been such an incredible few months, learning what works and what doesn't, naturally evolving with sometimes gentle nudges and other times steep learning curves.
It became clear that in order to reach more people, the stories wanted a strong physical container, which up to now hadn't existed for them, I never once imagined that would take the form of a tea and I am so very glad it does.
So, as of this little note, Story by Subscription is now Tales & Tea: a sacred self-gifting practice.
The stories reach us with the four moon phases of new, opening quarter, full and closing quarter.
They are audio recorded in Ceremony, sent direct to your email and offered up with love.
Available under the Honesty Box Principle where you decide how much you would like to pay above £3 per month.
They are held in a beautiful nest created by the Faerytale Apothecary's Wild Heart Tea of Courage.
This will be posted out exclusively to subscribers only, in a simple brown paper parcel tied up with string.
The tea always makes it's journey out resting in the arms of a it's very own tea ritual and story booklet, sitting alongside a gorgeous intentionally created journal, a recycled newspaper pencil, a vintage teaspoon, a handwritten letter of love and a story oracle card for a beginning altar.
This Box of Wonderment costs £15.
The idea is to create a truly nurturing, nourishing experience, to deepen the sacred medicines of the stories and how they find us.
Each Box of Wonderment, each Tale is a limited edition, the Tea a seasonally blended small batch boutique tea, the journal exclusive to the Faerytale Apothecary.**
**PLAIN SPEAK - Tales & Tea offers up the following:
Roughly once a week, following four phases of the moon an original story is audio recorded and sent to you by email. It will be between 3 and 15 minutes in length, accessed via a link and password protected. You will be able to listen to the story as often as you like until the next email arrives.
On very rare occassions, a story may be published elsewhere but normally long after it has sat with you.
The Box of Wonderment contains a unique loose tea not available anywhere else, a booklet containing a short story and tea ritual, with a reusable cotton teabag. Accompanying this will be a vintage tea spoon, a handwritten letter of welcome, an exclusive journal with creative prompts to guide your work with the stories and information on the moon phases. There is also a special Faerytale Apothecary story oracle card (drawing inspiration from the works of artists such as Arthur Rackham and Warwick Goble, these cards are snippets of story offered up as a guide for the lunar month ahead) and a gorgeous recycled newspaper pencil.
When you sign up to Tales & Tea, a welcome email will provide you with the link to order your Box of Wonderment.
The subscription can be joined or cancelled at any time.
New journals and additional boxes of the Wild Heart Tea of Courage can be requested at any time.
The price is based on UK postage, additional charges apply for postage to Europe and the rest of the World.
As much as is possible when first starting out as a small business, all that is created or found for you is in harmony with our planet through the use of recycled materials, vegetable inks, carefully found repurposed treasures and such.
Please note: I am advised to let you know that this kind of therapeutic work must never be seen as a replacement for that of your GP and other medical professionals. It is law that I must display a notice informing you that Tales & Tea are for ‘entertainment purposes’ only.
