Organic Teas from Leelanau County

By the Light of Day Teas
mLive has a great feature on Leelanau resident Angela Macke and her company By the Light of Day. Macke produces 36 blends of organic loose teas (black, green, white and oolong) and tisanes (infusions made from just about anything but tea: roots, bark, berries, dried fruits, herbs, flowers, etc.). According to the article…

Most of the ingredients are grown on her 12-acre property, almost a quarter of which is given over to thousands of herb and flower plants like cornflowers and chrysanthemums, lemon balm and lemon grass, chamomile, lavender and assorted mints. She harvests them all summer long. There are also assorted berry bushes, fruit trees and grapes for raisins.
