(2-97) Porridge Tea

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Tea Naming

I get tea ideas from a long list of places. One of the more common ones is people talking about food on Twitter. I’ll see a description and the flavour combination (or the bits of it that could be applied to tea) spark the thought of “I bet this would Continue Reading →

#365Inks: An Introduction

Twitter has been a fairly neat place for me, overall. Discovering the chronic illness community there was wonderful, stumbling into a corner of science twitter was glorious, book twitter is another happy place, pen and ink twitter tempts me sorely, crafting twitter keeps me engaged, and D&D twitter was the Continue Reading →

(7-321) Spoonie Doolittle Foundational Tea

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Tea Naming

Sometimes when blending a tea I need to first blend the tea that will be the foundation of the tea. It varies whether that turns out to be as complicated as it probably sounds. A friend had requested a tea for a particular purpose.  First step was to run through Continue Reading →

Choosing the Foundation for the “Build a Tea” project, Part 1

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

Since we have so many options for black teas, even leaving off the smoky ones, I thought it made more sense to compile them all in a single place for voting. Among other things, I thought you might like to see the entire list before making a choice.

Dire Straits (not the band)

**EDIT 11/12/19** Catastrophe averted. And we are ever so grateful. If you follow us on Twitter, you may already have seen that Mister Tea and I are currently attempting to avert a catastrophe. I’ve read a couple of articles and Twitter threads in recent months about how being poor has Continue Reading →

The Deanna Variation (Organic Chocolate Earl Grey)

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Star Trek Beverages

The path The Deanna Variation took from original inception to actual tea was a very long and winding one. Earl Grey and Chocolate seems like a fairly obvious combination, and I think it came up during our first year. Some period of time or other after that, I blended a Continue Reading →

Kiara – Day One – Where One Escape Leads to Another…

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Kiara Journals (Duet Game)

Well. Today was definitely exciting.  And in a different way than I was expecting. Then again, I’m not sure if I had a really solid idea of what I was expecting. From the outside world or from exile or…  anything . . . We ask that you create an account Continue Reading →

Gift of the Gloaming (Organic Kukicha/Lapsang with Lavender Tea)

Gift of the Gloaming started with a very simple combination of desire and need. I wanted a comforting tea taste, in this case specifically one involving smoke, but I was also aware of how desperately I needed to relax. As “Into the Dark Woods” combines two of my favourite teas, Continue Reading →

Cheshire Caf (Organic Lavender Coffee)

The saga of Cheshire Caf began many moons ago, when Mister Tea and I were having an out and about adventure. I was having a better physical day than many, and we did something resembling one of our old rambles – checking out a variety of locations we’d been curious Continue Reading →

We run a sale between the dates of Desert Sage Natural’s birthday and the date of our personal anniversary.  A celebration borrowing a sense of things from the Hobbits and their traditions. This year we Continue Reading →
