Herbal Tea Blends by Merlin

Unique Missouri Family Farm Blends Teas for Health & Well Being -


This is one of those pages that is "eternally" under construction.
Right now, at least to me, it looks a bit rough. I managed to LOSE the whole section when I migrated the private information to the commercial site. Vagaries of programming I guess. I'll work on it & getting everything jump linked accordingly within 2004. In the meantime the secure .kagi order page has changed a little & we're going to try to jump you to individual sections of the order page. See if your browser will open a whole new webpage to the order page so that you can read about what you are ordering while doing so. Merlin's products are diverse in nature & he has simply "oodles" of them.
Here you will only find the ones that are of herbal and/or medicinal value...not everything he has
{my payment processors would visit me in PERSON if I did that...with things...}

Herbs by Merlin Ltd.

Many of you know me; this golden red haired herbalist & webmistress; by my last name which is Emrys...also known as Ambrosius. {Or why did she become a "Roman" anthropologist?} Look for a link with the last name of a Welch mage/ healer/ prophet from a few hundred years ago in Great Britain; not to mention a healing college; as well as that college's abbot from a piece of historical literature called the Deryni ChroniclesTM. I believe that there was a mountain range & a city of mages by that name also to be found in literature.

Therefore it was with complete surprise & good fortune that I came upon a current living Merlin; a real life fellow with a traceable family line from Wales; who is a registered & practicing Master Herbalist. Although born in Missouri & with a thriving familial herbal farm in that state; he now makes his home in the Daytona Beach FL area.
His single & multiple dried herbal combinations are quite interesting. I use them myself as well as go to him for advice on particularly difficult alternative therapy solutions. I use his products to concoct my own tinctures, capsules, teas & salves with his help & recipes. By that statement; I don't always agree with his methods but I find him a fascinating collegue & mentor at times. Being a student is sometimes very frustrating; especially when your mentor thinks that you might be competition. But that was in the beginning. Now we are distant but reasonably good friends.

Below you will find his listing of Teas, Tinctures & Essential Oils. Although by no means complete; The Formulary pages will give you an idea of each of the herbs used by Merlin to develop these teas.

Soon each tea's ingredient will be linked to the formulary so that you can look them up. You should be also able to go onto the order pages & get back & forth from them as well. {sometime in 2004, I hope.} There are other sizes of the teas for commercial use. Email me with your commercial license & I will give you the wholesale pricing & sizes of them. These are loose teas. All will include an instruction sheet on how to brew them. Please make sure to add the shipping in on the order page.

Note: I do not STOCK these teas. I order directly FROM Merlin so that he can send out the freshest product possible to you. Sometimes those products will be on back order from his farm in Missouri. We abide by that so that you do not have to deal with stale teas EVER.
