We’re excited to announce a new store has moved into The E List space in Chester at 1 North Main. Tonic relocated from right across the street, and the shop suits them perfectly. The “botanical beverage boutique” is a little gem, and if you’ve yet to try Tonic’s teas, elixirs, and variety of hot and cold beverages, head straight to their new digs. Especially during this time of increased stress, you’ll find what you need to cure what ails you.
Owners Stacey Wood and David Soule are experts in plant medicine and grow most of the ingredients for their herbal teas right here on a farm in Haddam. Start your shopping with a refreshing Lavender Lemonade or Chocolate Chai Latte, then peruse the shelves to discover blends that aid in sleep, increase energy, rid a headache, or brighten a mood. The teas come beautifully layered in glass jars and make for a welcome and personal gift, too.
Don’t leave without a shot of Elderberry Syrup, an essential right now for boosting the immune system and digestive health. An even better idea is to grab a few bottles and down a sip or two on the daily to keep you humming along (or mix a teaspoon with seltzer). The Elderberry Calm is infused with cinnamon, ginger, clove, and local honey to help soothe raw nerves. It’s loaded with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients, a boost that we all need right now. Also on offer are a variety of sweet gift ideas from shampoo bars and healing crystals to gorgeous gardening journals. Tonic is a one-of-a-kind experience, and Chester is lucky to have it.
