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 →

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 →

Even Dreams Must Sleep (Organic Herbal Tea for Sleep)

A few weeks back I was settling for my standard attempt at sleep. We’d done most of our nightly rituals, and I was in a pretty standard state for me – fairly solid bodily exhaustion, with brain whirring on about everything from plans for apocalypse options to tea flavours 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 →

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 →

Fiaren Caravan (Organic Blend of Lapsang, Lime, and Rose)

Fiaren Caravan was inspired by a micro fiction. At the point it was blended, it held position as “potentially oddest point of inspiration for a Desert Sage Natural Tea.” It has since been displaced by a tea inspired by one of those odd meme name quiz things…  but I digress. Continue Reading →

The Blues Berries (Organic Blueberry Currant White Tea)

‘The Blues Berries’ was inspired by a conversation with one of the denizens of my tiny little corner of the Twitterverse. In the end, this wasn’t the tea she had been looking for, as the preference would have been for a much stronger blueberry flavour.  (Likely surprising no one who Continue Reading →

Lovely Day (Organic Lemon Balm and Lavender Tea)

‘Lovely Day’ was inspired by a conversation with one of our ‘Tea of the Month Club’ members.  When we come close to the last month of tea, I always offer them the option of choosing their final tea. In this particular case, that offer turned into a conversation regarding the Continue Reading →
