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 4 of 4 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 →

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

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 →

Thai-Dyed Tea (Organic Rooibos Tea with Anise, Nutmeg, and Turmeric)

Mister Tea has always had a thing for Thai Tea. Problem is, that iconic colour one expects from it is often created with artificial colours.  I’d seen a couple of more natural variants, usually with a hint of a couple of specific spices, and creating something along those lines has Continue Reading →

Spindle’s Bite (Organic Black Chile Rose Tea)

As has been stated prior, sometimes new tea happens somewhat randomly here. The day the first test blend of this was created had been a pretty bad one for me. By the time Mister Tea got home I could barely form words, the pain was so bad.  I certainly had Continue Reading →

Godric’s Courage (Organic Black tea with Rosehips, Ginger, and Safflower)

This entry is part 6 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Back in the early days of Desert Sage Natural, we made ‘Beauxbaton’s Blend‘ – and the thought occurred at the time that we should make teas for the Hogwarts houses, as well as for Durmstrang. It got added to the burgeoning tea ideas file and…  sat there.  For a really Continue Reading →

Rowena’s Wit (Organic Black Tea with Turmeric, Ginger, Ginseng, and Cornflower)

This entry is part 5 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

Many many moons ago, back in the early days of discovering that I could make teas just for flavour as well as for health – we created our first just-for-taste Potterverse tea.  “Beauxbaton’s Blend” led quite directly to the thought that eventually we should have teas for each Hogwarts house, Continue Reading →

The Wizard’s Tower (Organic Hibiscus Lemon Green Tea)

This tea began in a somewhat unusual fashion. The Twitterverse has been an amazing amount of help to us, in a number of different ways.  One of these is having a forum where I can ramble about tea, and people respond.  They help me brainstorm.  Ideas get randomly (and not Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Sacred Space (Organic Herbal Tea for Anxiety, Stress, and Panic)

One of the things that happens to the people in my physical reality is expressions of my Mama Bear streak.  (Admittedly, I say streak, Mister Tea would probably use a different word.  In fact, I can hear him ranting in my head as I type this.) This means I sort Continue Reading →
