Watson’s Wit (Organic Black Tea Blend)

The tale of Watson’s Wit is short and sweet, compared to many. One of the issues Mister Tea and I sometimes face is delays in acquiring some of our ingredients.  The largest culprits are turmeric (which, until recently, could be dastardly difficult to acquire organic) and a couple of the Continue Reading →

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 →

Coyote’s Caravan (Organic Russian Caravan Tea)

‘Coyote’s Caravan’ was an attempt to fix a problem we’ve had for several years. The only organic Russian Caravan tea we had access to is sometimes problematic to keep in stock.  The supplier is always very apologetic when they are out and we have to wait, and they always try Continue Reading →

Ravensong (Organic Chocolate Keemun Tea with Rosehips and Elderberries)

‘Ravensong’ is one of a pair of teas that were the result of the loving exhortations of a couple of friends of mine. It was pointed out that I spend a lot of time and energy taking care of other people, and helping them as much as I can, but…. Continue Reading →

Rebecca’s Rose (Organic Rose Black Tea)

One of the beautiful things about the work that we do is the connections we make with our customers.  From conversations about what types of tastes and teas someone prefers, to the deeper interactions regarding medicinal teas and the reasons they are needed – we value the interactions. Sometimes the Continue Reading →

Sansa’s Solace (Organic Lemon Cardamom Tea)

During the craziness that was the creation of our of our new fall and winter teas and cocoas, three things collided and caused me to decide, “I MUST Make That Tea!” The first thing laid the groundwork, one of those preparing the mind for an idea situations. Many of the Continue Reading →
