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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Rhapsody in Green (Organic Genmaicha, Fennel, and Ginger Tea)

As I think I’ve mentioned a few other places, tea ideas for me come from the most random places sometimes. In the general chaos of creating our TMNT Turtle teas, there was a bloke on Twitter who was very helpful.  He gave us a lot of input, kicked around ideas Continue Reading →

Miracle Max’s Chocolate Elixir (Organic Chocolate Turmeric Anti-Inflammatory Tea)

I have wanted to create a tea that could be called a ‘tasty tea’ with turmeric in it for quite some time. Partly because I love turmeric, and partly because I know there are people out there who seek it as a component of tea.  Making one that was approached Continue Reading →

Red Son Chai (Organic Rooibos Chai)

This was a tea that had been waiting to happen for quite a while.  Basically since we started working with Rooibos as a foundational ingredient. Given my love of chai, I’m pretty sure my plan is to eventually have a chai for each type of tea that we make, along Continue Reading →

Ent Draught (Organic Fortifying Herbal Tea)

‘Ent Draught’ was sparked by a couple of things. One of them was my desire to pair elderberries with as many different foundational taste elements as I have access to.  Not only are they one of my favorite fruits, they are quite good for you, on a variety of levels. Continue Reading →
