Fiaren Caravan (Organic Blend of Lapsang, Lime, and Rose)

Fiaren Caravan was inspired by a micro fiction. At the point it was blended, it held position as “potentially oddest point of inspiration for a Desert Sage Natural Tea.” It has since been displaced by a tea inspired by one of those odd meme name quiz things…  but I digress. Continue Reading →

Dark Metamorphosis (Organic Lapsang with Licorice and Lime)

This entry is part 9 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

‘Dark Metamorphosis’ began as an intrusive tea idea that insisted on being made before I made the thing I had originally wanted to blend.  (The worst part being that I haven’t actually gone back to make the original tea idea as yet.) The conversation that inspired ‘Lovely Day’ had also Continue Reading →

Cratakardia (Organic Lemon Raspberry Herbal Tea)

‘Cratakardia’ came out of the fact that there’s been quite a bit of stress in our lives of late.  Some of it is direct and personal, and some of it falls into the “due to existential dread” category. The exact reasons why aren’t germane to the creation of this tea, Continue Reading →

The Hole in the Roof (Organic Gunpowder Green Anti-Inflammatory Tea)

June of this year was a comedy of errors. We’d had a very old swamp cooler, and it finally gave up on functionality.  A swamp cooler, for those of you who live in the Land of Central Air, or in places where air conditioning is not required – is the Continue Reading →

Nikki’s Heat (Organic Spicy Apple Black Tea)

‘Nikki’s Heat’ came about even more randomly than is usual for us. We’d processed turmeric, and I had a little extra set aside.  Too much to put into one of the going jars, but not enough to fill up the smallest jar we had on hand. We’d also processed green Continue Reading →

Desert Sage Natural 2018 Fall Tea Giveaway

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

If you have followed us for any length of time, you know that we create a lot of tea. We also do not have a brick and mortar shop, so our space is at a premium. On one hand, this means your tea is always blended to order – and Continue Reading →

Taliesin’s Tonic (Organic Lemon Cinnamon Green Tea)

A bit back I had a plan for the day. I was going to settle in and polish a couple of blog posts, and record the audio for at least one. Tea seemed quite necessary to this process. Unfortunately, as sometimes happens, I went to look at our tea selection Continue Reading →

St. John’s Verity (Organic Lapsang and Earl Grey)

As I’ve stated many times before, our ideas for tea blends come from a lot of different places. One of the more regular culprits is our tea survey.  Practically every time it gets filled out, I end up with at least one more idea for a tasty hot beverage. On Continue Reading →

Love, Brew Love (Organic Cinnamon Orange Rosehip Lemongrass Herbal Tea)

This tea is another first for us. Mister Tea made the first test batch.  This is his first tasty tea creation. I’d had a truly terrible day.  The sort of day that is made of so much pain and angst and misery that there’s not enough processing left for anything Continue Reading →

Merry & Bright (Organic Genmaicha Cranberry Tea)

From time to time I pick up a new ingredient somewhat randomly.  Our suppliers sometimes offer free shipping for over a certain amount, that kind of thing. Cranberries were one of these “I bet I could work with this” choices. The first test for strength of taste from the cranberries Continue Reading →
