ChariTeas: Origin Story

This entry is part 1 of 13 in the series ChariTeas

One of the things we want to do as a company is try to improve the world a bit around the edges. This starts with the fact that our goal with our products is to make your day a touch better.  Whether it be a medicinal tea that eases something Continue Reading →

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 →

Desert Sage Natural 2018 Fall Tea Giveaway

This entry is part 3 of 5 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

If you have followed us for any length of time, you know that we create a lot of tea. We also do not have a brick and mortar shop, so our space is at a premium. On one hand, this means your tea is always blended to order – and 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 →

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 →

Chaimonade (Lemon Chai Tea)

‘Chaimonade’ was not a tea I specifically set out to make. I was working on blending a couple of other teas – an Earl Grey with more citrus, and an orange hibisus-y thing and…  bits and pieces of them came together in my head and decided I needed to make Continue Reading →

Caspian’s Chai (Organic Herbal Chai)

When I put together our chai sampler, I was reminded of the fact that we did not have a decaf chai. My preference for creating decaf blends is to choose an herbal foundation for the tea, rather than using a decaffeinated tea. Hawthorn Berries are one of my favourite consistent Continue Reading →

Chapel’s Chai (Organic Vanilla Chai)

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Star Trek Beverages

I love chai.  This is something it is probably fairly easy to realize, given the dizzying array of chai blends that we have. When we created our chocolate chai (“Uhura’s Frequency”) Mister Tea and I decided we should have a vanilla chai as well.  In part for balance, and in Continue Reading →
