Introducing Miruvor Long Hair Tea

Health from the Inside Out
Long, healthy hair cannot be achieved solely from topical products.  You need to have a good, diverse diet that supplies your body with the needed silica, protein, vitamins and minerals; but let's face it, nobody has a perfect diet, and choking down huge supplement pills isn't something anyone looks forward to.  To that end, we're happy to announce Miruvor Long Hair Tea as a natural, safe and very tasty suppliment to give yourself the best hair you can grow.

 What is Miruvor?
Appearing in The Lord of the Rings, miruvor is a warm and fragrant cordial of the Elves that gives the drinker renewed strength and vitality. The elves do not reveal how miruvor was made, but it is thought to come from the honey of the undying flowers in the gardens of Yavanna.

Inspired by this mystical drink, our Miruvor Herbal Hair Tea is a gathering of herbs and blossoms that supports healthy scalps and provides what’s needed to grow hair worthy of an elven princess.

What's in it?  What does it taste like?
Miruvor is gluten-free, kosher, organic, and naturally sweetened.  A blend of herbs and flowers,Miruvor tastes of wild woodlands, fields in bloom, all warmed with cinnamon. Caffeine-free, it can be enjoyed at any time of day or night and blends wonderfully with green tea or chai.

Ingredients: Red raspberry, nettles, linden flowers, lemon verbena, chaste tree berries, lemon peel, burdock root, chamomile, horsetail, squawvine, cinnamon and stevia leaf.

Some of the ways to take horsetail is to drink it in your tea, take it in capsule form or apply it directly to the scalp and hair

How do I Make it?
Miruvor is a loose-leaf tea, meaning that it does not come in a prepared bag.  To infuse the tea you can take one of several methods, from simply putting the tea through a strainer before drinking, to using a tea ball, or a mesh infuser basket that sits in your cup.  You could also use a teapot with a built-in infuser, or something called a Perfect Tea Maker that strains your tea for you.

No matter how you infuse your tea, for maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over one heaping teaspoon of herbs. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. To make iced tea, brew double strength and pour over ice. For best results drink 3 to 5 cups per day. The spent herbs and bag can be composted.

Want some extra antioxidants?  Blend it with green tea!  Need a kick in the morning?  Blend it with some chai.   Have leftover tea? Pour it through your hair for a rinse that will give your hair softness and shine.

Storage: Keep the rolled and closed bag in a cool, dark and dry place.

How do I know if I like it?

Miruvor comes in two sizes, a 2 tsp sample and a 6 ounce bag.  Pick up a sample pack to test drive, and then come back for more!


  1. I'm dying to try some of this! :) I usually don't like stevia though. Does it make it very sweet?

  2. Usually I shouldn’t have nettles in a tea form, cos I have a bit high blood pressure, but should be okay so far. If I like the tear very much, no doubt I’ll order some more ;-)
