Syzygy (Organic Rooibos with Elderberry and Cinnamon)

Syzygy is ones of the teas that fits into one of my long-term projects. I want to have tasty teas that fit into a couple of categories.  One set that will be helpful for colds and flus – which dovetails well with my goal of “combine elderberries with All the Continue Reading →

Silk Road Spice (Organic Cinnamon Ginger Coffee)

For a change, Silk Road Spice doesn’t have a particularly long and involved story. I was going through a time of irritatingly dodgy digestive system.  Mister Tea suggested I make a cinnamon ginger coffee so I could have the magic of ginger in both coffee and tea formats. The amusing Continue Reading →

Return to Dexterity (Organic Tea for Carpal Tunnel and Arthritis)

The idea for ‘Return to Dexterity’ was inspired by Mister Tea’s uncle having a particularly severe bout of something along the lines of carpal tunnel syndrome.  It seemed like the sort of problem we should have a tea for, as there are many ways in which soft tissue can get Continue Reading →

The Hole in the Roof (Organic Gunpowder Green Anti-Inflammatory Tea)

June of this year was a comedy of errors. We’d had a very old swamp cooler, and it finally gave up on functionality.  A swamp cooler, for those of you who live in the Land of Central Air, or in places where air conditioning is not required – is the 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 →

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 →

Love, Brew Love (Organic Cinnamon Orange Rosehip Lemongrass Herbal Tea)

This tea is another first for us. Mister Tea made the first test batch.  This is his first tasty tea creation. I’d had a truly terrible day.  The sort of day that is made of so much pain and angst and misery that there’s not enough processing left for anything Continue Reading →

Embers (Organic Russian Caravan Vanilla Chai)

‘Embers’ was a first for me. Not our first chai, we’ve created quite a few of those, due to my semi-fixation on the spice set involved. This was, however, the first time Mister Tea had actively sought a chai for himself. It began, as many of our teas do, with 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 →
