I Will Survive (Organic Calendula Vanilla Rose Black Tea)

This entry is part 2 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

My Desert Sage Natural inboxes can be complicated and messy places. Queries from customers, whether about orders or  teas are the majority of the messages, but far from all. There’s a wide variety of spam, ranging from normal to disturbing.  (I get that the protocol is that sex sells everything, Continue Reading →

Jerry Cordial (Organic Cherry Cordial Inspired Tea)

This entry is part 3 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

Cherry cordials are a bit of a family tradition for Mister Tea.  They are a favorite candy for his grandfather, and early in our relationship there were several years that near Christmas we spent a decent chunk of time trying to find cherry cordials that we felt would be ‘good Continue Reading →

‘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 →

Bonnie’s Blessing (Organic Lavender Lemon Herbal Tea for Sleep)

This entry is part 5 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

2015 has been an interesting year for us, in the Chinese curse sort of way, on some levels. We had a month pretty much made of funerals, followed by a broken thumb for Mister Tea, and a hand injury for me (worry trumped sense and I got it in the Continue Reading →

‘Ginger and Spice and Everything Nice’ falls several of our categories for tea.  It is a charitea, it is a tea made to give a known flavour that follows our requirements for ingredient quality, and a tea to help you ease some of the caffeine out of your diet. It Continue Reading →

Dahvana’s Dream (Chocolate Apricot Caravan Tea)

This entry is part 7 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

Wandering into new realms of social media has been a very positive experience for me.  Especially Twitter, once I worked past my initial intimidation and confusion.  It has become a fairly amazing internet-space. I stepped into Twitter with relatively low expectations.  I wasn’t entirely sure how to approach it, and I was uncertain Continue Reading →

No Place Like Home (Organic Rosehip Vanilla Lemon Rooibos)

This entry is part 8 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

We’ve mentioned our new favorite pet rescue, Positive Paws Rescue Transport, a few times over the past year. They have helped us to make relatively grand strides in dealing with Dulce’s separation anxiety, as well as helping her to remember how to make friends with other dogs.  (She wasn’t aggressive, Continue Reading →

The Norn Compass (Organic Cinnamon Chocolate Black Tea)

This entry is part 9 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

This tea was created to celebrate the wedding of a dear friend.  If you follow our teas, or our blog posts, she (and her apocalyptically cute wee one and one of her gigantic dogs) have shown up from time to time. When she and her partner decided that they were Continue Reading →

Archimedes Anodyne (Organic Chocolate Genmaicha Green Tea)

This entry is part 10 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

This tea had a long strange journey from idea to ready-to-introduce-tea. It began in a conversation with a Twitter friend about our teas, and how there were a dizzying number she wanted to try and had we ever considered offering a single teabag as a mini-sample. We hadn’t.  But once Continue Reading →
