Gift of the Gloaming (Organic Kukicha/Lapsang with Lavender Tea)

Gift of the Gloaming started with a very simple combination of desire and need. I wanted a comforting tea taste, in this case specifically one involving smoke, but I was also aware of how desperately I needed to relax. As “Into the Dark Woods” combines two of my favourite teas, Continue Reading →

Solace (Organic Roasted Kukicha, Hawthorn Berries, Lemon Balm)

Solace, and its companion tea – Sanctuary – were born out of a particularly nasty flu that was one of the gifts the holiday season of 2018 gave to me. We’d been out of most of our useful for sick and pain teas when it began, and as I do 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 →

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 →

Falkor’s Flight (Organic Blend of Green Kukicha, Jasmine, and Cherry)

‘Falkor’s Flight’ was created mostly because I wanted to see if I could. I’d mentioned on Twitter that I needed to slow down on the creation of new teas, because there are only so many that should be in process at any given time.  Not an uncommon thing to hear Continue Reading →

The Hole in the Roof (Organic Gunpowder Green Anti-Inflammatory Tea)

June of this year was a comedy of errors. We’d had a very old swamp cooler, and it finally gave up on functionality.  A swamp cooler, for those of you who live in the Land of Central Air, or in places where air conditioning is not required – is the Continue Reading →

Desert Sage Natural Spring 2018 Giveaway

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

  If you are familiar with Desert Sage Natural and our work, you are aware that I create a lot of teas. Possibly too many teas. At least when considered from a storage perspective. For each new blend, we create a loose tea sample, a teabag sample, a single teabag, 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 →

Splinter’s Brew (Organic Kukicha and Gunpowder Green Tea)

Mister Tea and I have an ideas file that is disturbingly long.  Recently, we actually split it out into multiple files, to sort of…  organize by idea type. Some of the time we come up with a name that we think would be spiffy, sometimes it is a flavour concept, Continue Reading →

Desert Sage Natural’s Fall Sample Giveaway

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series Giveaways, Sales, Events

We create a lot of teas. So many that at times even I find our selection somewhat dizzying. And yet I can’t seem to stop making more.  Not a flaw, really, but definitely a quirk. As we are a small company, we end up wondering what to do with the Continue Reading →
