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 →

Orphans & Models (Persistent Sale Page)

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

As we’ve mentioned a few times, once we’ve created a new tea, we are left with the product photo batches and samples – with little use for them here.  This is also happening to older teas as we update our photos and posts. For the samples of Simply Tasty Teas, Continue Reading →

Wilde’s Wassail (Earl Grey Cranberry Spiced Tea)

Back in late December, Mister Tea and I were having a Doctor Who day with a couple friends. I was having a day where I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the current array of teas, as far as what was wanted and what seemed right. I’d grudgingly allowed myself to run Continue Reading →

Elvenguard (Organic Rosemary Earl Grey)

Elvenguard began as a salute to two of our friends and their relationship. Tea-Ra and Spoonie Doolittle started as voices heard on Twitter, and became treasured friends. When their anniversary came up, I was saddened that we hadn’t known them when their relationship began.  I have developed a habit of Continue Reading →

The Shapes of Clouds (Organic Black Tea with Lemon Balm)

There were many things that came out of the Doom Flu that stole my January and sent me into a catch-up scramble that I haven’t finished with yet. The Shapes of Clouds was one of them. Flus are interesting, and so are the various forms of delirium one can experience Continue Reading →

Accio Spoons (Organic Herbal Tea for Muscle Relaxation)

Accio Spoons was the product of the collision of a few things. The first was a ridiculously bad flu that knocked me out for most of January. The second was the fact that end of year stock clearing had left us in a bad place as far as access to 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 →

Benefits of the Label-pocalypse (Sale)

This entry is part 5 of 6 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 →
