Clever Girl (Organic Black Tea with Currants)

It doesn’t take much to provoke a tea from us. Especially if the thing you toss into my brain is a thing that has been in the idea file for ages, and you express a specific desire to see that tea. The first glimmers of what became Clever Girl landed Continue Reading →

Abe’s OddiTea (Organic Chocolate Strawberry Basil Tisane)

This entry is part 1 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

The idea for ‘Abe’s OddiTea’ came from a grocery run and a picture of a candybar. Most of the time Mister Tea does the outside of the house errands on his own.  Part of this is that being in a car can be fairly painful for me, and part of Continue Reading →

The Blues Berries (Organic Blueberry Currant White Tea)

‘The Blues Berries’ was inspired by a conversation with one of the denizens of my tiny little corner of the Twitterverse. In the end, this wasn’t the tea she had been looking for, as the preference would have been for a much stronger blueberry flavour.  (Likely surprising no one who Continue Reading →

The Lime in the Coconut (Organic Lime Coconut Green Kukicha)

It probably took too long for us to realize that we could make a lime and coconut tea. The flavours get combined so frequently, that it really should have been an obvious blend, from the moment we had both ingredients in the toolbox. However, it wasn’t until I started playing 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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →
