Hand Blended Teas And Original Paintings To Bring A Little Magic To Your Day

The Forest Witch shop began as a little bit of magic whilst Mia sipped away, imagining delicious tea blends to drink while reading, and wondering if she could make them herself. On a lovely October day, she decided to take that leap and buy her first ingredients, a handful of different types of teas, and plenty of tasty herbs and spices to begin with.

As the months passed, and her offerings grew, Mia realized what a fantastic thing she got to do, and always looked for inspiration for her next blend, whether it is the Gods and mythology from ancient times, or characters and foods from fantastical novels to wonderful shows, movies, and even video games.
So many stories to be consumed, to be loved and geeked out about, and so many teas to be inspired by them!

A few years later, as her need to bring beauty into the world continued boiling over, Mia decided to begin offering prints of her original paintings as well! Same as her teas, she's inspired by mythology, stories from books, tv shows, movies, and general nerdery.

Please stick around, because The Forest Witch is going to continue writing this story for some time yet!

Returns and exchange details
All sales on tea are final and will not be refunded by the seller once items are shipped.

Refunds are available for prints, however, the buyer will cover the costs of return shipping.

If you as the buyer have a mistake in your order, please contact the seller BEFORE anything is shipped in order to switch out teas or attain a refund if you as the buyer have changed your mind about the purchase.

Once an order has been sent in the mail, the seller is not responsible for damages or losses.

The buyer is responsible for making sure that place of delivery is safe. If you think that your items may get stolen sitting in your mailbox, call your post office and have them hold the item until you can pick it up in person at the post office.
All payments must be secured before anything is sent to you.

If you have made a mistake concerning an order and I have not yet shipped, contact me as soon as possible to sort out the problem, whether you no longer want the teas, or want to switch the blends you're ordering.

If you've made a mistake regarding your art print order, please message me within 24 hours so that I can modify what you would like.


I am now offering tracking on orders sent within Canada and the USA. International tracking won't be offered as some countries do not have the capabilities to track shipments, so I'd rather not have you pay for a service you won't receive.

Once your order is in the mail, I, the seller, am not responsible for any duties or taxes incurred at borders. Nor am I responsible for any losses or damages.



4-8 business days from shipping day

5-10 business days from shipping day
(If your order is time-sensitive, please choose tracked shipping as there have been a higher number of issues of untracked packages arriving later during the holidays to the USA)

6-12 business days from shipping day


Prints are manufactured by Canvas Canada, in St. John's, Newfoundland. They are currently only able to be shipped to Canada & the US.

I will place an order with Canvas Canada for your prints about a day after you place your order. That way, if there are any mistakes in the order, you have time to fix them.
After an order is placed, I am unable to cancel or edit it.

All prints come with tracking so that you can follow their journey to your door.

Print order fulfilment can take between 5-8 business days, then shipping time for Canada is between 4-8 business days. US is 5-8 business days.
****Information I Collect****
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

****Legal Bases I Rely on To Collect, Use, and Share Your Information****
-as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

-when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;

-if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;

-and as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

****Information Sharing and Disclosure****

-Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

-Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

-Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

-Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

****Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU****

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.

-Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

Frequently asked questions
How long will my tea stay fresh?

Tea can stay safe to drink for quite a long time! In fact, other than nutrients decaying over time, so long as it still smells and tastes good, it's perfectly fine to drink! However, if you do want to make sure that you're getting all those awesome nutrients, it's agreed upon that about a year will be what to aim for.
Of course, to lengthen that time, you can keep your tea in the freezer!

Thankfully, all my tea is made fresh, and packaged in resealable bags! I also like to keep my ingredients as fresh as possible, so I make orders for the ingredients for as much as I would need to make tea in a month, so your bags of tea will be pretty darn fresh when you get them!

Why are some of your teas not listed anymore?

Just as in any business, some products do better than others, and the ones that don't do overly well get set aside here. However, you can find all of my teas on my website, unless I am completely discontinuing the blend.

Also, I do sell seasonal teas, so you'll likely see those ones again the next time the proper season rolls around!

Can you make a special tea for me?

I certainly can! And it can be for just about anything, from specific deities to a tea inspired by your favourite character from any kind of story medium (book, tv, film, fairy tale).
If it's something I can sell in the shop afterward, you need only buy a single bag. If it is something very specific that wouldn't be able to sell widely, then you'll be required to buy the batch, however many bags that is (usually between 2-4 depending on ingredients).

Do you sell large quantities of tea?

I offer discounted bulk bags of individual teas, as well as discounted packs of either 4, 8, or 12 teas of your choice. If you need more tea, say as wedding favours and the like, please message me and we can discuss what you need and what kind of pricing I can offer!

I also have a wholesale sheet available for those interested.
