We run a sale between the dates of Desert Sage Natural’s birthday and the date of our personal anniversary.  A celebration borrowing a sense of things from the Hobbits and their traditions. This year we Continue Reading →

First Taste of Home (Organic Chocolate Blueberry Tea)

‘First Taste of Home’ was born out of a combination of annoyance and my sometimes oddly applied sense of responsibility. In this particular case, it wasn’t annoyance at a label, or annoyance at an ingredients list – it was due to one of our ingredients having changed texture. I’d received 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.

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 →

Abe’s OddiTea (Organic Chocolate Strawberry Basil Tisane)

This entry is part 1 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

The idea for ‘Abe’s OddiTea’ came from a grocery run and a picture of a candybar. Most of the time Mister Tea does the outside of the house errands on his own.  Part of this is that being in a car can be fairly painful for me, and part of Continue Reading →
