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 →

Enchanted Forest (Organic Elderberry Peppermint Black Tea)

A bit back Mister Tea was having a rough evening with breathing and seeing – though without the noises and sensations that indicate congestion.  (You know the ones I mean, right?  Squidgy ineffectual gurgling sounds as you attempt to inhale, making you wonder if a portal to the Elemental Plane Continue Reading →

Elphaba’s Brew (Organic Mint Coffee)

We’d known we wanted to make a chocolate mint coffee – in part because Mister Tea loves the combination of chocolate and mint so much – and in part because it just seemed like a thing that should exist. A coffee with mint only was something that had been suggested, 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 →

Godric’s Courage (Organic Black tea with Rosehips, Ginger, and Safflower)

This entry is part 6 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Back in the early days of Desert Sage Natural, we made ‘Beauxbaton’s Blend‘ – and the thought occurred at the time that we should make teas for the Hogwarts houses, as well as for Durmstrang. It got added to the burgeoning tea ideas file and…  sat there.  For a really Continue Reading →

Rowena’s Wit (Organic Black Tea with Turmeric, Ginger, Ginseng, and Cornflower)

This entry is part 5 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Many many moons ago, back in the early days of discovering that I could make teas just for flavour as well as for health – we created our first just-for-taste Potterverse tea.  “Beauxbaton’s Blend” led quite directly to the thought that eventually we should have teas for each Hogwarts house, Continue Reading →

Durmstrang’s Draught (Organic Russian Caravan with Rosemary, Caraway, Ginseng, and Ginger)

This entry is part 4 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Our ‘Beauxbaton’s Blend‘ began the process.  Sadly, it took us a couple years to get around to blending teas for Durmstrang and the Hogwarts houses. I hadn’t initially had any notes on Durmstrang, strangely enough – but there are good conversations to be had in the Twitterverse, and a couple Continue Reading →

Salazar’s Ambition (Organic Gunpowder/Caravan/Cacao Nibs/Peppermint Tea)

This entry is part 3 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Shortly after creating Beauxbaton’s Blend, we realized we should probably make teas for each of the Hogwarts houses, as well as for Durmstrang. We put the idea into the file, and it sat there for a while. Conversations within the august and patient Tea Naming Group led to some scribbled Continue Reading →

Grey’s Secret Garden (Organic Rosehip Vanilla Cornflower Earl Grey)

The concept of this tea has been around for quite a while.  It had been suggested that one of the obvious things that we lacked was a take on a ‘Cream Earl Grey.’ I put it onto the “work these up at some point” list, and it promptly disappeared into Continue Reading →
