A new batch of Shepherd’s Bible Verse Tea is arriving this week. As many of our readers know, Lighthouse Trails began a special division nearly seven years ago called The Shepherd’s Garden in which we created our own brand of organic Bible verse tea and developed our own unique flavors. We did this as a kind of “tent-making” ministry to help strengthen Lighthouse Trails financially. We developed six different blends plus a Sampler box. Each individually wrapped tea bag has a tag on a string, and each tag has a KJV Bible verse (95 different verses). If you have never tasted this tea, we hope you will give it a try.
