Lovely Day (Organic Lemon Balm and Lavender Tea)

‘Lovely Day’ was inspired by a conversation with one of our ‘Tea of the Month Club’ members.  When we come close to the last month of tea, I always offer them the option of choosing their final tea. In this particular case, that offer turned into a conversation regarding the Continue Reading →

Falkor’s Flight (Organic Blend of Green Kukicha, Jasmine, and Cherry)

‘Falkor’s Flight’ was created mostly because I wanted to see if I could. I’d mentioned on Twitter that I needed to slow down on the creation of new teas, because there are only so many that should be in process at any given time.  Not an uncommon thing to hear Continue Reading →

Desert Sage Natural 2018 Fall Tea Giveaway

This entry is part 3 of 3 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 →

No Sleep ’til ‘Burque! (Organic Raspberry Lavender Herbal Tea)

The internet can be a truly wonderful place. One of the things I am fairly regularly grateful for is the people that it has enabled me to meet. Some truly brilliant friendships have been born there. Our first giveaway introduced me to a number of wonderful people.  Amusingly enough, it Continue Reading →

Mama Girl’s Memory (Organic Jasmine Elderberry Rose Herbal Tea)

This entry is part 11 of 11 in the series ChariTeas

These days I respond to a lot of things by creating tea. It is a constructive creative outlet, and being able to bring something beautiful into the world helps with a wide range of situations and emotions. Grief is a particularly potent fuel for my creativity, and always has been. Continue Reading →

Crowley’s Kiss (Organic Hibiscus Black Tea)

I’d known we’d want a black tea with hibiscus ever since we worked up Type O. However, it didn’t seem particularly pressing at the time, especially given how obnoxious it was to work with our original supply of hibiscus. There are a number of ingredients we’ve discovered that are somewhat 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 →

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 →

Helga’s Loyalty (Organic Barley, Hawthorn, Calendula, Apple, Cinnamon Tisane)

This entry is part 2 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

We knew from the creation of ‘Beauxbaton’s Blend’ that we eventually wanted to have teas for each of the Hogwarts houses – and for Durmstrang – but it took us ages to get around to it. The idea had been discussed, in a general sort of way, and I had Continue Reading →

The Wizard’s Tower (Organic Hibiscus Lemon Green Tea)

This tea began in a somewhat unusual fashion. The Twitterverse has been an amazing amount of help to us, in a number of different ways.  One of these is having a forum where I can ramble about tea, and people respond.  They help me brainstorm.  Ideas get randomly (and not Continue Reading →
