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 →

SereniTea: Sacred Space (Organic Herbal Tea for Anxiety, Stress, and Panic)

One of the things that happens to the people in my physical reality is expressions of my Mama Bear streak.  (Admittedly, I say streak, Mister Tea would probably use a different word.  In fact, I can hear him ranting in my head as I type this.) This means I sort Continue Reading →

Taste of the Summerlands

‘Taste of the Summerlands’ was inspired by a carbonated tastiness we found at one of our local markets.  It was a day of outings and adventure for me – which are relatively rare, cherished, and highly valued.  (Also often a bad idea, physically, but mental and emotional health are important, 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 →

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

This entry is part 4 of 11 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 →

New Hope (Organic Fertility Tea)

‘New Hope’ was originally formulated for a friend.  I hadn’t given the issue of fertility a lot of thought prior, but when I am confronted with a problem, I generally try to find a solution. When we are speaking of things that can be addressed with herbs, this means diving Continue Reading →

Something for the Pain (Organic Rose Green Tea for Pain Relief)

Creating this tea took a lot of time and experimentation. I know many women with fibromyalgia, both personally and through the business.  That particular diagnosis aside, I know even more people who experience chronic pain.  Due to my own issues with nerve pain and damage, it is something I understand Continue Reading →

Achievement Unlocked: Still Standing (Organic Non-Drowsy Pain Tea)

Over the course of the past few years I have interacted with a lot of people who suffer from chronic pain.  For some it is because of fibromyalgia, for some it is because of spinal trauma, for some it is…  any of a number of other conditions.  Sometimes the reason Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Something for the Blues (Organic Tea for Depression)

When we first opened our shop, Desert Sage Natural had around 30 teas, all of them medicinals.  Over time this has expanded, in a way that continues to boggle my mind.  Some of this happens because Mister Tea and I, and our looney friends who help us to name teas, Continue Reading →

I Will Survive (Organic Calendula Vanilla Rose Black Tea)

This entry is part 1 of 11 in the series ChariTeas

My Etsy message box is often a complicated place. We receive requests for more information on teas, requests for specific teas, hatemail from both sides of the spectrum, weird I-can’t-quite-understand-them spam messages, spam messages that I wish I didn’t understand, and…  occasionally we get requests for donations.  Sometimes this is Continue Reading →
