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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Currantly Nuts (Organic Currant Coconut Black Tea)

Currants are one of my favorite fruits, and one I have wanted to add to our ingredients list for quite some time. They were also difficult to find in a format where they could be used for tea. We did find currants, but were sadly unable to find organic currants. Continue Reading →

Pie of the Tiger (Organic Cherry Pie Tea)

This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

We rewrite songs in this house. Not usually completely, but my brain will spit out random bits of rewrite attached to a situation or a joke or…  and apparently this habit is infectious. We’d been discussing making ‘Defenders’ teas, and I was rambling about my failed make-a-tea-that-was-infused-with-whiskey experiment and how Continue Reading →

Leonardo’s Leadership (Organic Kukicha and Gunpowder with Blueberry and Cornflower)

Once we’d gotten ‘Splinter’s Brew‘ sorted, we knew we had to make teas for the other turtles.  Since making the teas based on pizza preferences seemed a little…  weird, even for us, we decided to try to make the teas centered around colour, and in some cases, attitude.  (I do Continue Reading →

Cowabunga (Organic Kukicha Gunpowder Orange Turmeric Tea)

The TMNT turtle teas were a fun project. We wanted to start with a foundation of ‘Splinter’s Brew‘ and then add things in the right colour ranges that would also taste good. For Michaelangelo’s tea, our options were slightly limited.  Calendula tends to be more yellow than orange, and I Continue Reading →

AnTeaInfection Plus (Organic Anti-bacterial, Anti-viral Herbal Tea with extras)

‘AnTeaInfection’ has been one of my go-to teas for illness and infection for quite a long time. However, sometimes it needs to be paired with other teas to properly fight whatever sickness is currently making life more difficult. Sometimes remembering all the teas I should be drinking and then managing Continue Reading →
