Announcement: Lotus Leaf is now Aromagregory Soap and Tea Co.

Lotus Leaf is now aromagregory soap & tea co. Our loose leaf teas, tea blends, herbal blends and herbs are all sold in 25 teaspoon quantities. Keep in mind that teas can be brewed more than once. So, save that teabag and get a second cup out of each steeping. You double steepers can get 50 cups of tea out of each bag we send you. Each, 25 teaspoon bag is $7.95.

Inside our Nashville TN store you will find tea brewing accessories such as tea bags, tea spoons, strainers and steepers. Teas also sold by the cup. Specialty iced teas in summer, hot tea by the cup all year round.

Visit our updated web page HERE. We offer loose teas and herbs, serve tea by the cup and have tea steeping supplies.  The market also carries a wide range of pantry supplies for healthy cooking such as: gluten-free products, textured vegetable protein, quinoa, soy flour, rice flours, liquid amino, nuts, seeds and so much more…..

It is essential to learn how to take care of ourselves internally and externally, and so very important that we take charge of our health and well being by making positive choices on what we bring into our lives and into our bodies (or onto our plate!).  So, in addition to offering a variety of natural foods, gluten-free and organic products, we will be offering a monthly schedule of cooking classes from vegetarian & vegan to gluten-free menus, as well as slow foods and ethnic cuisine.    We will also discuss additives and preservatives to avoid, creating an alkaline diet and explore such workshop topics as “making your own cleaning products” to growing and using herbs. Consider Lotus Leaf Healthy Market as your local resource for some of these natural health alternatives.

Hemp Hearts

hemp heartsLotus Leaf Healthy Market is now carrying Hemp Hearts. Two sizes available.

From a customer review of hemp hearts: “Manitoba Harvest’s Hemp Seed is a delicious topping for pastas, salads, and desserts. It’s full of Omega 3s and proteins. They’re easier to handle than sunflower seeds or pistachios that require some work to enjoy. These hemp seeds blend in well with recipes.”

Blood Orange Tea – Great for Iced Tea in Summer

The blood orange is a culinary favorite, with its deep vibrant color and sweet, tangy flavor. A perfect ingredient for a refreshing herbal blend! This naturally sweet, caffeine-free tea pairs blood orange peels with hibiscus flowers and rose hips. Rich, hearty and tangy, with a good balance of orange peel dryness and fruit juiciness.

Great for iced tea in summer
Not only does blood orange fruit tea mix with almost anything, it makes a wonderful iced tea on hot summer days.  The tea is so flavorful that no additional sweeteners are needed.

Steep at 212° for 5-10 minutes.

ingredients & lore
blended with orange peels, hibiscus flowers, rose hips and natural orange flavor
Orange, a common fruit these days, has a long and questionable history. Many countries claim to be its birthplace, including China, India, Burma, and Malaysia. During the Middle Ages, the fruit traveled from Asia to Europe, then along with the conquistadors to the lands of the New World. In its new home, the orange plant became fruitful (so to speak) and multiplied. Today, the Americas are the largest orange producers in the world, with most production clustered around the areas of Sao Paulo in Brazil and Florida in the United States.
