Food & Drink: Groove Tea Project

Published December 1, 2011 at 4:00 a.m.

A Warren family is brewing up a new line of teas for kids. Amy and Jesse Carst often drink tea and wanted to share the relaxing ritual with their children. Their tiny tea testers liked the idea, but not the taste. So the Carsts began blending ingredients that would be pleasing to young palates. After many in-home tasting sessions, they settled on three, each of which is named for a song: "A Little Night Music" smells like warm apple pie, "Le Boogie à Vélo" is vanilla mint, and the iced-tea mix "Barengeburi-Bubuland" is billed as "berry berry good." All are caffeine-free and sweetened with stevia leaves. Although she's not a musician, Amy Carst says she wants to instill a love of music and arts in her children, and the Groove Tea Project helps. Ten percent of the profits from the Carst's song-titled teas support music and arts programs around the globe.

Groove Tea Project: Teas sold in tins containing 16 sachets, $12. Available online or at local stores including the Warren Store, Red Hen Bakery & Café in Middlesex, Homeport on Church Street in Burlington and Harvest Market in Stowe. Info, 448-2789, groovetea.com.
