SereniTea: Sacred Space (Organic Herbal Tea for Anxiety, Stress, and Panic)

One of the things that happens to the people in my physical reality is expressions of my Mama Bear streak.  (Admittedly, I say streak, Mister Tea would probably use a different word.  In fact, I can hear him ranting in my head as I type this.) This means I sort Continue Reading →

Raphael’s Fire (Kukicha Gunpowder with Safflower, Chili, and Vanilla)

Once we’d finally acquired Kukicha and created ‘Splinter’s Brew’ – we knew we had to make a tea for each turtle. This ended up focusing on personality and colour of mask. For Raphael we needed red, of course, and something that covered his snark and …  angst issues. We crafted 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 →

Moctezuma’s Mocha (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Chili Coffee)

‘Moctezuma’s Mocha’ was a natural outgrowth of living in a place where chocolate and chili are considered a completely normal combination, and having a mad blending day where we created a ridiculous amount of new coffees. It took me a while to warm to the concept of chili with chocolate, Continue Reading →

Cooper’s Curry (Organic Sweet Curry Green Tea)

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Doctor Who Beverages

‘Cooper’s Curry’ is a tea that was a ridiculously long time from basic concept to actual blend. Ages back, we’d created our ‘Bad Wolf’ to add to our array of Whovian teas.  The only problem was that it put our Whovian blacks at one more than our Whovian greens. We Continue Reading →

Hello Sweetie

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series Doctor Who Beverages

Combining our love for tea and our love of geekery is one of the lovely things Desert Sage Natural allows us to do. Once we began making teas to salute the Who-ni-verse I found myself pondering various characters, wanting to create tastes for them.  In considering River, I decided she Continue Reading →

Steve’s Three Alarm Zen (Organic Chili Green Tea)

This entry is part 3 of 10 in the series ChariTeas

‘Steve’s Three Alarm Zen,’ our chili green tea, is one of our ChariTeas, and is attached to the memory of a man that I hold a deep respect and love for. This past year has been a complicated one for Mister Tea and I.  There has been a lot of Continue Reading →

Chocolate Cauldron (Chocolate Chili Black Tea)

Chocolate Cauldron is another one of our “give back a lost taste” teas.  My mom had commented on missing a tea that their local tea shop could no longer find.  It was based loosely around the concept of a mole – chocolate and chili. We already had ‘Hello Sweetie’ as Continue Reading →
