Nikki’s Heat (Organic Spicy Apple Black Tea)

‘Nikki’s Heat’ came about even more randomly than is usual for us. We’d processed turmeric, and I had a little extra set aside.  Too much to put into one of the going jars, but not enough to fill up the smallest jar we had on hand. We’d also processed green 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 →

Taliesin’s Tonic (Organic Lemon Cinnamon Green Tea)

A bit back I had a plan for the day. I was going to settle in and polish a couple of blog posts, and record the audio for at least one. Tea seemed quite necessary to this process. Unfortunately, as sometimes happens, I went to look at our tea selection Continue Reading →

No Sleep ’til ‘Burque! (Organic Raspberry Lavender Herbal Tea)

The internet can be a truly wonderful place. One of the things I am fairly regularly grateful for is the people that it has enabled me to meet. Some truly brilliant friendships have been born there. Our first giveaway introduced me to a number of wonderful people.  Amusingly enough, it Continue Reading →

Mama Girl’s Memory (Organic Jasmine Elderberry Rose Herbal Tea)

This entry is part 12 of 13 in the series ChariTeas

These days I respond to a lot of things by creating tea. It is a constructive creative outlet, and being able to bring something beautiful into the world helps with a wide range of situations and emotions. Grief is a particularly potent fuel for my creativity, and always has been. Continue Reading →

Enchanted Forest (Organic Elderberry Peppermint Black Tea)

A bit back Mister Tea was having a rough evening with breathing and seeing – though without the noises and sensations that indicate congestion.  (You know the ones I mean, right?  Squidgy ineffectual gurgling sounds as you attempt to inhale, making you wonder if a portal to the Elemental Plane Continue Reading →

Galactic Green (Organic Raspberry Green Tea)

This is the first tea we have created due to a hashtag. Yes, you read that right. A hashtag. One of my mutuals on Twitter (and a fellow spoonie, to boot) kept sending out tweets with the #365 teas hashtag. I initially assumed it was a specific company, and had 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 →

Merry & Bright (Organic Genmaicha Cranberry Tea)

From time to time I pick up a new ingredient somewhat randomly.  Our suppliers sometimes offer free shipping for over a certain amount, that kind of thing. Cranberries were one of these “I bet I could work with this” choices. The first test for strength of taste from the cranberries Continue Reading →
