“Long live the sovereign state of Cascadia!” - not a phrase you are going to hear any time soon. Cascadia is the proposed name for a sovereign state that would be formed by a union of British Columbia, Washington and Oregon in the event that all three seceded from the respective federal affiliations. Cascadia, which some believe should include Northern California and Alaska, was conceived by Thomas Jefferson. He envisioned an independent Western nation after Lewis and Clark set off to the Pacific Northwest in 1803. The current Cascadia movement is based on the notion that people living in that part of the world share similar customs, beliefs and linguistic dialects that distinguish them from their Eastern compatriots. Well, this got us thinking…Pacific coastal beliefs and customs can only mean one thing…Hippies! So in honor of this proposed hippy nation we created Cascadia Herbal, one of our more hippier teas to date.We started with a Cerderberg Rooibos and packed it full of hippie friendly herbs. Run some loose leaf through your fingers and you’ll find Lemon Verbena, fresh Peppermint, Fennel and Liquorice, herbs noted for their psychically soothing qualities and positive impact on the body, most notable the digestive system. We’re certain that if and when the nation of Cascadia comes into being, this tea will become the national drink. Brew a pot, pull out the love beads and share a cup with someone you love today.
