I've beaten up my unfortunate friends enough.

Time to get down to business.

This blog will mainly be for musings, links and updates to my tiny soap shop, Heart and Dart Teacrafted Soaps, started in November on 2007 after a rather shocking layoff and a very timely suggestion from a friend.

We're just starting our journey: a studio kitchen, one soap pot, one work table, and a soap knife. It ain't much, but we're making it work!

What we do have is tea. Lots and lots of tea.

My husband has been an enthusiast of rare and gourmet teas since he was a teenager, and has long since dragged us down his darkened path. As are result, we're steeped (ha!) in unusual, amazing teas: some from countries you've probably never even heard of, others as familiar as breakfast.

And then it occurred to us: Hey. Tea is great for your skin. It's soothing, softening, mildly astringent, and it smells great, too. Can't waste it all in our teapots!

We're learning as we go, with the love of tea to lead us.
