Sanctuary (Organic Lemon Balm, Barley, Hawthorn Berry Tisane)

One of the things that Mister Tea and I have decided to attempt to do is make it so that any flavour set we create that is caffeinated will have a companion tea that is either herbal or actually made with decaffeinated tea. Amusingly, this was actually a decision my Continue Reading →

Solace (Organic Roasted Kukicha, Hawthorn Berries, Lemon Balm)

Solace, and its companion tea – Sanctuary – were born out of a particularly nasty flu that was one of the gifts the holiday season of 2018 gave to me. We’d been out of most of our useful for sick and pain teas when it began, and as I do Continue Reading →

Licorice Throat Soother (Organic Herbal Tea for Sore Throats)

Licorice Throat Soother was blended because a friend saw our Cinnamon Throat Soother and reacted with dismay that it lacked licorice. Due to some complications regarding licorice’s interactions with diabetes, as well as some of the other common first world chronic health issues, I’d mostly avoided using it. Strengthening that Continue Reading →

I Will Survive (Organic Calendula Vanilla Rose Black Tea)

This entry is part 2 of 13 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.

Benefits of the Label-pocalypse (Sale)

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

If you follow us on Twitter, a few months back you may remember me being in a borderline panic state due to label malfunction. The most recent batch had been iffy, as far as the adhesive was concerned, and while I’d known that, I hadn’t realized the inevitable result of Continue Reading →

Clever Girl (Organic Black Tea with Currants)

It doesn’t take much to provoke a tea from us. Especially if the thing you toss into my brain is a thing that has been in the idea file for ages, and you express a specific desire to see that tea. The first glimmers of what became Clever Girl landed Continue Reading →

Into the Dark Woods (Organic Lapsang and Kukicha)

“Into the Dark Woods”  was inspired by one of those weird meme quiz name things. One of my mutuals on Twitter had posted one, commenting on how hers did not suit her in the slightest, and I took a look and cringed. Mine was something completely suiting to a witchy Continue Reading →

Mother’s Embrace (Organic Genmaicha Rose Tea)

This tea came out of one of my ongoing projects.  I have a plan to have a series of generally supportive to health teas along the lines of ‘Ent Draught‘ – but with different teas as the foundation. Eventually I want to have a tea intended as a health tonic Continue Reading →
