Galactic Green (Organic Raspberry Green Tea)

This is the first tea we have created due to a hashtag. Yes, you read that right. A hashtag. One of my mutuals on Twitter (and a fellow spoonie, to boot) kept sending out tweets with the #365 teas hashtag. I initially assumed it was a specific company, and had Continue Reading →

F.A.Q.

Audio for Entire Page:     How do you source and choose your ingredients? We look for organic.  We prefer fair trade, when applicable/available.  Even when we have to resort to non-organic, we make sure that nothing has been added.  We don’t have any “misc” ingredients.  What you see, both Continue Reading →

Fire in the Sky (Herbal Barley Elderberry Chai)

I’ve mentioned a few times in a few places that I love our Tea of the Month Club. There are a number of different reasons for this.  Part of it is that I really do enjoy curating the tea selections – especially when our survey has been filled out.  There’s Continue Reading →

Chai-Tea-Tea, It’s a Magical Cup (Organic Pineapple Coconut Mate Chai)

I decided quite a bit back that we should have a chai for each of our foundational ingredients. The spice combination is a favourite of mine, and in the course of our time as Desert Sage Natural, we’ve learned that it is not uncommon for a person’s tea tastes to Continue Reading →

Thai-Dyed Tea (Organic Rooibos Tea with Anise, Nutmeg, and Turmeric)

Mister Tea has always had a thing for Thai Tea. Problem is, that iconic colour one expects from it is often created with artificial colours.  I’d seen a couple of more natural variants, usually with a hint of a couple of specific spices, and creating something along those lines has Continue Reading →

Elphaba’s Brew (Organic Mint Coffee)

We’d known we wanted to make a chocolate mint coffee – in part because Mister Tea loves the combination of chocolate and mint so much – and in part because it just seemed like a thing that should exist. A coffee with mint only was something that had been suggested, Continue Reading →

Adventures in Cooking: Hawaiian-ish Fried Rice

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Adventures in Cooking

In recent months, one side of Mister Tea’s family has started a new tradition.  We attempt a family dinner once a week, usually on Saturday. For the first weeks this was going on, I could not attend, because puppy training class and the way I had to operate to actually Continue Reading →

Intro to Adventures in Cooking

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Adventures in Cooking

It’s weird how one event can turn into an idea for a blog post, and then, as you start to really think it through, balloons out into a series. This all started with a rotisserie chicken. As I started figuring out what I wanted to say about what Mister Tea Continue Reading →

Spindle’s Bite (Organic Black Chile Rose Tea)

As has been stated prior, sometimes new tea happens somewhat randomly here. The day the first test blend of this was created had been a pretty bad one for me. By the time Mister Tea got home I could barely form words, the pain was so bad.  I certainly had Continue Reading →
