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 →

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 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 →

Into the Dark Woods (Organic Lapsang and Kukicha)

“Into the Dark Woods”  was inspired by one of those weird meme quiz name things. One of my mutuals on Twitter had posted one, commenting on how hers did not suit her in the slightest, and I took a look and cringed. Mine was something completely suiting to a witchy Continue Reading →

Coyote’s Caravan (Organic Russian Caravan Tea)

‘Coyote’s Caravan’ was an attempt to fix a problem we’ve had for several years. The only organic Russian Caravan tea we had access to is sometimes problematic to keep in stock.  The supplier is always very apologetic when they are out and we have to wait, and they always try 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 →

Eureka: Smoky Monkey (Organic blend of Lapsang and Golden Monkey)

This entry is part 13 of 14 in the series ChariTeas

The story of ‘Eureka: Smoky Monkey’ began several years ago. A customer had purchased our ‘Tea of the Month Club,’ and when he filled out the survey he listed off his favourite teas. Golden Monkey.  Silver Needle.  Practically everything on his list was a top of the line type of Continue Reading →

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 6 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 →
